    Default Anyone with a nose piercing?! Advice??

    So I am about to buy a nose ring. I usually use studs but I wanted a ring.
    Should I get a captive ring or a segment ring? Which one works better? I will be hiding the ball if I get a captive ring so they will look the same.
    Just want to know which one goes in the nose better and generally works better.

    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Right helix x2 & forward helix

    I think it's best to get one of each and see which works best for you. Depending on size, material, technique used, and make of the product, the answers are going to vary widely and also depend on personal preference.

    Yeah I'd recommend just buying a couple of cheap ones in various styles/sizes and find one you're happy with, then invest in a top quality one. It will vary from person to person, some even prefer glass hoops (:

    If you want a full ring with a ball or gem or something on it, I'd recommend getting it professionally put in, because those are really difficult usually (it took me 2 hours to put the ball in the first time). But there are hoops that you put in from the inside that have little stoppers on them so they don't fall out of your nose, and they take almost no effort to put in, because you don't have to assemble anything, and they aren't full hoops (but they look like they are because the end part is inside your nostril), but you don't want to sleep with those in.
