A nose piercing is not just for rebellious teens anymore. It is one of the most popular piercings in the world sported by people of all ages. It can make you look bold, unique, and unforgettable!

There are many designs and options to choose from, ranging from simple piercings in the nostril and septum to more intricate ones like rhino and third eye piercings. But, you should not choose in a hurry when making any type of bodily modification. You should consider the shape of your face and nose, the kind of jewelry you want to wear, and the look you are going for. Depending on the placement of the piercing and the jewelry you wear in it, you can go for an edgy or a dainty look. You must also consider the complications like nose piercing bumps that you may need to deal with.

If you want to get a nose piercing but are confused about which one to pick, you have come to the right place. This article lists the latest nose piercing trends in 2022 that you should go for to slay the look. Read along to find out more!

1. Septum Piercing

Recently, septum piercings have experienced a significant revival. It is interesting to see more people rocking this edgy style since it has been around for over 4000 years. Rihanna and Scarlett Johansson have both sported septum piercings recently, expanding the appeal of these piercings beyond the traditional punk image they once belonged to.

Septum piercing is a circular piercing that is sported between your nostrils. This piercing is done at the “sweet spot,” i.e., the small bit of soft tissue just below your septum. Thus, it does not take much time to heal.

2. High Nostril Piercing

The only difference between a high nostril piercing and a conventional nostril piercing is their locations on the nasal bridge. A high nostril piercing is placed higher up on the side of the nose.

A stud or L-shaped pin is recommended for this style of piercing because a standard ring won’t fit in it. The piercer will choose the best location based on your nose’s size, shape, and curve. Both a single stud (on one side of the nose) and a double stud (on both sides of the nose) look fantastic with this design.

3. Nasallang Piercing

A single long barbell is used in this tri-nasal piercing that goes through the septum and both the nostrils. The needle is quickly inserted across all three layers while your nose is cuffed and the jewelry is inserted. As a result, each nostril seems to have a single stud.

This septum piercing lies higher up on the nasal bridge than ordinary septum piercings, which typically miss the thicker layer of cartilage in the middle of your nose.

4. Septril Nose Piercing

A septum piercing serves as the foundation for a septril piercing. A septum piercing is stretched until it can be pierced through the tip of the nose to create a septril piercing.

Septril piercings typically cause moderate discomfort, but the effect they create is quite unique. In addition, the healing process for a septril piercing can take roughly six months as it impacts cartilage and tissue in your nose.

5. Multiple Nostril Piercings

This look involves getting multiple nostril piercings on either side of the nose. You can get a combination of standard, septum, bridge, and septril piercings to create a personalized look that is unique to you.

However, it can take several months to get all the piercings and complete this look. Many professionals do not advise getting more than two piercings done at once.

6. Bridge Piercing

This striking piercing that is located between your eyes is also known as an Erl piercing. Unfortunately, it poses a higher risk of infection, migration, and rejection because it is a skin piercing. Therefore, you must keep a close eye on it as it heals.

Be careful not to let this piercing catch on your clothing or glasses. Fortunately, the jewelry is usually a shorter, curved barbell that fits snugly through your nose.

7. Nostril Piercing

A nostril piercing is the standard piercing that you may see many people sport. This piercing is done on one side of the nose. There are several jewelry options available for nostril piercings. You may wear rings, hoops, or studs.

Since this piercing is done on the soft part of the nose, it is less painful than cartilage piercings. In addition, it just takes two to four months to heal completely.

8. Rhino Piercing

The rhino nose piercing is a vertical piercing. As you can see, this piercing resembles a rhino horn. It extends above the tip of your nose from the bottom center of your septum. Since the cartilage around the tip of the nose is significantly more intricate, precise positioning and technique are required to prevent injury and needless trauma.

9. Austin Bar Piercing

Even though no piercing harms the cartilage, an Austin bar piercing is uncommon and not preferred by many people. Here, the flesh at the tip of your nose gets pierced twice, and a fitted nose pin or a barbell is inserted through it. This piercing takes about three months to heal because it does not pass through the cartilage.

10. Third Eye Piercing

Consider a third eye piercing if you want a genuinely unique look. This piercing runs vertically from the nose bridge to the forehead. It is a dermal piercing, which means it only passes through your skin.

This piercing is not suitable for people with a low pain tolerance because it involves much more skin digging than a usual piercing. However, if everything goes according to plan and it heals properly, it will give you a totally unique and spellbinding look.

Now that you are fully informed about the many types of nose piercings, it’s time to choose the one that suits you the most and rock the style!

Just be sure to ask the piercer for aftercare tips and follow them diligently to make sure your piercing heals quickly and without getting infected.
