with a screw one, you lift it to an angle, and then turn it as you pull it outwards – does that make sense? you should be able to feel the natural angle that it wants to turn, or just keep trying different angles until you find one that works.

it’s quite hard to explain written down!!

i don’t have mine done anymore or i would totally post a pic!!

Mine is a little diamond L-shape ring, and I just never change it. Diamonds go with everything! I had it yank out on a bath towel a couple of times early on, and getting it back in was enough of an ordeal that I lost any interest in ever switching it out. It probably wouldn’t be a big deal now that it’s been over a year and a half though.

This is the only picture where you can kind of see mine! I use the screw ones. Getting them in the first time is a pain in the ass..I’ve just had mine for 8 years, so I’m used to it. I can literally flick the stone on my nose, and it starts to come out. Then one twist clockwise, and it’s out all the way. 

It’s also easier the first time if you don’t use a mirror. I find that it can help, with mirror being all backwards and whatnot πŸ™‚

I also pull my screw one out at an angle. I kind of pull it out downward then twist it. I’ve had it for 4 years now so it’s kind of like second nature now lol. I’ve also had my labret, vertical labret, snakebites, tongue, eyebrow, anti eyebrow, and industrial piereced. But for now just my nose, vertical labret, industrial, and tongue πŸ˜›

Here are some pics… the second one is pretty bad since someone took it without warning lol but it shows the nose piercing pretty well.

I started with the screw, like everyone, but then once I could change it I put in the L shape one. I think I did about 2 years of that (I’ve had it for 7 years now) I started using the straight “nose bone” ones that just have the little ball like thing on the very end on the inside. They’re completely straight. So easy to take out and put back in. Definitely prefered.

@OrchidsandCandles:  No the end is so small it’s like just sliiiightly bigger than the post itself, and it’s tapered. It doesn’t come out unless I make it, so it’s still secure.

ETA: You can always buy a cheap one and see if you like them so if you don’t like them you’re not wasting a fortune. You definitely have to make sure you go in on an angle though. Piercings don’t just go straight into the nose, they go in at an angle.

I have double nostrils!!

 

which was really hard to take a picture of, so sorry for the weird webcam photo but they wouldn’t show up!! And they are even haha. 

 

I wear Neometal in them. Comfiest thing I have ever worn in a piercing, and they are implant grade titanium, so they are one of the best materials you can wear in your piercings.

Plus, they have TONS of tops you can switch out. I’m currently wearing clear bezel gem ends, but you can wear stone cabachons, shapes, prong gems, etc. The possibilities are endless. Check out their facebook for some ideas.

as for jewelry, i usually just get something like this

it’s a stud that has a little ball at the end. I’m not going to lie, i lose them ALLL the time, especially in the shower, but they’re the easiest to put in.

I also suggest the L’s. You literally just feed the L portion in and twist. If I want some extra clingage, I’ll use these and they aren’t as bulky in your nostril like the curly ones.

I LOVE mine. I’ve had it 9 years now I think? Got it my freshman year of college (can’t believe it was that long ago!) Mine is a screw – I can take mine out pretty easily, as long as its clean all I do is pull it down a bit and then twist. I wear my original ring since I spent $80 on 14k white gold/diamond – if I bought a new one it’d be a cheapo so might as well just keep the expensive one in! I have bought some from Spencers/Hot Topic before and the gems fell out pretty quickly.

Here it is: (sorry for the massive photo, it won’t downsize for me!)
