To keep your nose piercing feeling and looking great, you can’t beat a titanium nose stud. Titanium is one of the most comfortable metals for body jewellery and it is an excellent choice for nose piercings. Here at Body Jewellery Shop we have a choice of over 30 titanium nose studs including jewelled and plain studs in a range of anodized colours.
Unlike surgical steel, titanium does not contain nickel or other cheap metals. Many people react badly to the nickel in surgical steel and find titanium nose studs much more comfortable. Titanium is also hypoallergenic and can shorten healing times compared to other metals. If your nose piercing is taking a very long time to heal or is often sore I definitely recommend switching to a titanium nose stud.
Curved Titanium Nose Studs
There are two basic designs used for titanium nose studs: curved nose studs and labret-style nose studs. Almost all of the studs available are based on this design. Curved titanium nose studs have a hook shape that many people find very comfortable. You insert these nose studs by using a twisting motion, so they are easy to insert and remove. The curved part of the stud sits flush with the inside of your nostril. Below are just three of our curved titanium nose studs. All of these designs are available in lots of other colours and styles.
Labret Style Titanium Nose Studs
These labret-style nose studs are identical to labret studs that you would wear in a lip piercing, only much smaller. They have a flat back plate that sits neatly inside your nose and a screw-on ball. These nose studs are a little harder to insert but they cannot fall out of your piercing. Everybodyâ€™s nose is different and some people find that curved nose studs tend to slip out or get caught on clothing. If this is your experience, you may find a labret-style nose stud more comfortable. I do not think that either of these nose stud designs is better than the other, it just depends on the shape of your individual nose. Plain titanium nose studs are very cheap so I recommend getting one of each style to see which one fits your piercing best.
