Any advice from those of you that have them?
Will they pierce it with one of the diamond studs How long will it take to heal, etc?
I was going to do it recently but went to Jamaica and didn't want to have to deal with it there. Now I am home and figure why not get it done!

when i got it pierced it did hurt a little, but i went alone & i'm kind of a chicken. i do have a substantial sized tattoo, and i would say this was scarier walking into, but hurt less.
do you have the cartilage of your ears pierced? i think that my nostril was much much easier than any of the 3 cartilage ear piercings i have. it healed completely in about 2 weeks and has never caused me any trouble. one downside i should mention is that i did try to let it heal for about a year when i started my career, and it never fully did. it always was lurking like a blackhead... but i recently put the stud back in & am loving it every bit as much as i did when it was brand new.
best of luck with your decision.

I've had my nostril pierced for about 3 years now and I loveee it. It did hurt going in but only for a few seconds. It healed fairly quickly-- three weeks, I think. I work in a super-conservative office, so when I have to go to work, I change it out to a non-studded nose stud (I found a nose stud I wasn't completely in-love with, clipped off the end with the stud and nestled the post into the piercing site. It stays in place all day and is practically invisible!)

Thanks for all your responses though about the pain, etc. If I decide to do it, at least I have an idea of what to expect.

My piercing experience wasn't a good one. I was on vacation in FL and decided to get it done, so went to this random place. They told me my nostril was too wide and that a ring was the only way to do it. I told them I didn't want a ring, I wanted a stud and so they tried to pierce it with the studs that have a corkscrew post. The initial piercing was fine with the big long needle, that didn't hurt to bad at all. If I remember right, I kinda wanted to sneeze, but the pain wasn't too bad. The bad part was when they tried to follow the needle thru with the corkscrew stud. I passed out about 4 times b/c he was screwing it INTO my nostril skin instead of my nose opening. I eventually told him to give me my money back.
So my friends and I went to the mall and bought an ear piercing kit (ya know the earrings with the realllllly pointy studs?), and my friend re-pierced it for me back at our room. It wasn't pleasant, but I wouldn't change it and I have never regretted it.
I have had quite a few piercings, and I would say the initial piercing (not the drama that followed for me) was minimal. The recovery was fine, even WITH my drama.
When I take mine out, the hole shrinks down within a few days to be barely visible. So I think that if you want this and have wanted it for a while, go ahead and do it! Who cares if you get tired of it and remove it in a few months/years!
