To take out a nose ring, use your fingernails to pull the stud of the nose ring, and follow the curve of the metal that holds the stud in place to pull it out. Before you begin, wash your hands, and afterwards, sanitize both the ring and your nose.
There are multiple styles of nose rings available to fit in a nose piercing, with the most common being the captive bead. Putting a captive bead nose ring back in involves lining up the space in the ring to slide over your nose, threading the ring through and then replacing the bead.
After washing your hands and sterilizing the nose ring, insert one end of the ring into the piercing, feed it through, then press the ring together with your fingers to close it. Be gentle at each stage to prevent damage to nasal tissue.
Because each person is different, an exact amount of time to leave a nose ring out cannot be stated. The ring can be taken out if the piercing has fully healed, but the hole should be tested for closure consistently if left out for multiple days at a time.
To remove a nose ring, pull on the outside stud and follow the curve of the ring as you pull it out. Use saline solution to swab the nose ring and the inside and outside of your nose.
The ring for a new nose piercing should remain in place for at least eight weeks, according to the Tang Center at UC-Berkeley. The total healing time can last up to three or four months.
"For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart" is a quote from 1 Samuel 16:7. This Bible passage could be interpreted to mean that God does not oppose outward adornments such as nose piercings.
In the past, nose rings were a method of controlling bulls because they were dangerous to the handlers. As time went on, it became customary to only use nose rings on bulls led by a halter. Nose rings are unnecessary for bulls that are not led.
A nose ring hoop is a type of body jewelry that is circular in shape and fits in a nose piercing. Nose ring hoops come in multiple colors and gauges.
The healing time needed before changing out jewelry varies depending on the part of the nose that is pierced, but ranges from 4 months to 27 months. Generally, cartilage piercings take longer to heal compared to simple skin piercings.
