    Default Nose piercing with gun

    Well im a bit confused here. My friend went and had her nose pierced but the piercer used a gun. He used a proper nose stud, wore dispoable gloves and cleaned the area. I have heared that guns shouldnt be used for nose or anywhere at that, but my friend said lots of people have had their noses done there and they are ok. Oh also the piercer said change the stud after 2 days? i thought that was a bit too early. Plz can anyone help me out?

    The nose should never be pierced with a gun. The positioning will go wrong and it does absolutely no favours for the skin cells around the whole made with a blut stud.

    There shouldn't be any need to change it to a stud, and this piercer just seems to be a complete cock, frankly. Even if you did need to change the nose stud to an ear stud - it would be advisable to get a piercer to do it.

    My advice is to get your friend to remove it, and have it redone by a professional, who uses a needle. God, I bet that hurt her.

    Studs are better than rings for healing generally, they don't get knocked as easily and the like so they end up being much happier piercings!!!

    What was the stud that it was pierced with made from??

    If I were her (seen as how the damage is now done) i'd keep it clean and it might heal and be fine!! -sea salt soaks would be best!!

    All I can say is good luck to your friend with it!!!

    No cartilage is a funny beasty, it doesn't like you doing things to it -the hole will close but the cartilage will never be the same!! To do with the fact that the structure of the cartilage changes throughout your life and when you damage it then it replaces the old cartilage with new that is like that in newborns (babies)!!

    Mind you skin and bone doesn't heal exactly like it was before!!

    Damage to any biological tissue results in its replacement by a different structured material -which is inevitably scar tissue and the like!!

    Hope that answers you question

    I was silly as I choose to have my nose done with a gun. The first time I had it done nose piercings had just begun to be the in thing and they was all done with guns..well at least thats what everyone was used with.
    the second time I choose the gun cus I was afraid the needle would hurt alot more.. :roll: My piercer also said the stud should be changed after a few days but I kept mine in longer.
