Thread: I'm so confused, jewellery sizes

    Default I'm so confused, jewellery sizes

    Hello..I've had my nostril piercing for 8 months now.Always had 1mm jewellery in it. I really like some items that only come in 0.8mm size, they are much more elegant and I would like those, but how does it work, I just buy one of them and put it in and the hole will shrink by itself? How long would it take? And I guess it's not flexible so that I can just go back to wear my 1mm jewellery at a later time, I actually have to choose between 1mm and 0.8 jewellery?Thanks

    You will have no problems switching between the two. The size difference is so small you will never notice it whether going down or up.

    As long as it is 100% healed then it should be fine. I didn't size bounce until mine was over a year old, hopefully it will be ok for you. It may seem a tiny difference, but percentage-wise it's bigger than you think!

    I wear .8mm jewellery in mine, especially as I wear a hoop - I want a look that's more "girly" than "goth".

    I can't now remember how long I waited before I downsized as I've had my nose piercing so long but would say waiting a year is sensible.
    Piercings:
    Nose, navel, both nipples horizontally, Princess Diana, septum, tongue

    Tattoos:
    Line of butterflies from lower belly round onto back and up to my shoulder, garter tatt on left thigh

    Update on this one rather than starting a new thread,
    i decided to go for it and shrink it to a 0.8
    i bought some pretty titanium nose screws and a nose ring and a bioflex retainer, basically the same things I've been wearing for the past 10 months just a smaller size.
    i don't have any intention to go back to a 1mm anyway as all the prettiest ones out there are 0.8 especially the gold ones I want.
    so I plan to just stick in my nose a titanium 0.8 and treat it as a fresh piercing as in clean it with the saline water twice a day and leave it in for a month, it should work alright shouldn't it?

    I don't see the need for soaks at this point, just rinse it in the shower daily or when you're washing your face.

    Oh that's good to know, I thought that I had to treat it like a new one for some reason. So it will shrink fast I hope?

    No, it's healed so it doesn't need any special treatment at all.
