    Initially I found it easier to put a thumb over the nostril of the pierced side when I need to blow the other side, rather than the usual push the side of the nose in, if that makes sense?
    It looks a bit funny but doesn't hurt the piercing.
    For blowing the side you have pierced it's okay, but you can sometimes get boogers caught around the post, so as above, just do it careful

    Once it's all healed up with correct fitting jewellery I hardly know it's there and can blow/de-booger as normal

    I'd like to recommend being pierced with a labret over a nostril screw,... I had a reeeeally bad experience with the screw, so labrets all the way!

    Labret makes for much easier snot blowing. We just went through a horrible horrible allergy season here in Florida and I survived with 2x nostrils, one being newish and a septum. You can do this!
    As for the pain issue, I would say *what pain?*
    Completely pain free imo.
    Piercings =)
    Left ear: lobes x2, tragus, inner conch, outer conch x3
    Right ear: lobe, daith
    Paired nostrils, 10g septum
    Retired: Right helix x2, navel x3, bilateral nipples

    Be super careful with tissues, I always blew my nose carefully, and got a really bad cold after 3 weeks, but once or twice the tissue got caught on the piercing and i ripped it out when pulling the tissue away from my nose!

    Hi HarelyQuinn. I have had my nose pierced 5 times (yes, 5). They never would heal. This last time, my 5th, it worked, thus far. I am at 6 weeks. I went to a very reputable establishment. I did get the "bump," but my piercer told me to use chamomile tea compresses. It has worked so far. Blowing your nose won't happen normally again. I have to use cutips to clean the nostril that is pierced.

    I know this post went up over a year ago and I hope you took the plunge!

    Current: 2 standard lobes, R nostril (I'm just getting started).

    Yes me too - but I wouldn't like to count how many of those L shaped studs I've lost in the process. Sometimes I noticed, sometimes I didn't!

    I can never do that, I'm just too scared of using too much force and hurt my nose or lose the piercing. I just blow one nostril at a time. The one with the piercing very carefully. And then I always have to check the stud is still there.
    i only ever lost it once, I was crying and blew my nose like I used to do before the piercing and it flew out of the hole! It's a screw so I didn't think that was possible. It didn't do any damage, I only noticed it wasn't there when I checked it with my finger.
    i miss blowing my nose with full force.
