    Default Double Nose Piercing?

    So whilst I think I'll give my ear a rest for now, as my forward helix is still healing and my rook doesn't like being poked and prodded too much (and I also haven't decided on a triple or double forward helix yet!) I'm deciding my next piercing.

    I love the double nose piercings where the two are on the same side - however I'm not sure if they would suit and the best way to get them pierced.

    I'm also not sure if I would be healing too many to get them both done at once, I have a month old forward helix and my navel is 3 months old around the 16th of may.

    Is it recommended to get them done at the same time, or to do one than the other?

    I have messaged a local piercer, who says it's up to me but I know noses are sensitive and whilst getting them both done at once would be nice, healing-wise what's the best way to get them done and minimise any chances of things going wrong?
    have:
    2x forward helix (right)
    1x rook (right)
    2x lobes (right & left)
    navel
    nose (right)

    want:
    conch (right)
    upper conch (right)
    snug (right)
    vertical industrial (right)
    third lobes (right & left)

    I'd just get them done at once, one lot of healing, no need to be changing bars etc when you get the other done and so on.

    Advice is no more than 3 healing in a 3 month period, 3 months has gone for the navel so you should be fine.

    I've considered this before but think I'm going to go back to one either side, I love the look of doubles on the same side though!

    I'm very tempted to get them both done at once to just get it over with, but also want to take my time and not rush so I will maybe have to see how I'm feeling and if I can afford both when I book myself in!

    These would be my first facial piercing, and I'm still a little unsure so might well end up chickening out and getting my forward helix finished or another ear piercing lol

    Do them all at once. They'll heal at the same time and save you time.

    I'd get as many done as you can in one go, all can heal together that way.

    I'd say do them separately.
    I got my nostril done in the cleanest place possible, took pretty good care of it and I got the dreaded huge fleshy bump for (at least) 5 months. It eventually cleared like six months ago and my piercing is awesome until now (and I mess with it a lot, I am constantly blowing my nose and stuff) and never gave me any problems since then.

    I've read that those bumps are very very common (or at least the internet says so) so I imagine that getting two bumps right next to each other would be quite noticeable (not to mention bothersome, because even though it usually doesn't hurt, it makes the skin a bit tender).
