What Are The Different Types of Nose Piercings?
These are the nine different types of nose piercings:
Third Eye Nose Piercing
The Third Eye Piercing is between the eyebrows vertically at the bridge of the nose.
A bridge piercing is a facial or nose piercing that pierces the thin bit of skin on the bridge of the nose, just between your eyes.
These types of nose piercings the most common nose piercings; a nostril piercing is set right along the curve of cartilage that makes up the sides of your nostrils.
High Nostril Piercing
A high nostril piercing is similar to a regular nostril piercing but higher up on the nasal bridge.
A nasallang piercing goes through both nostrils and the septum. The piercer inserts the needle through one nostril, which goes through the septum, and exits through the other nostril. You can see the piercing inside the nasal cavity.
Austin Nose Piercing
An Austin bar piercing goes horizontally through the tip of the nose. But, unlike the nasallang piercing, Austin nose piercings do not go through the septum and you can’t see it inside the nasal cavities
Rhino Nostril Piercing
A rhino piercing goes vertically through the tip of your nose. Usually, it’s from the top of your nostril near the septum.
A septril piercing goes through the “healed” area of a stretched septum piercing and exits on the outside of the nose, below the tip.
A septum piercing goes through the thin piece of tissue that separates your nostrils.
