When hippies returned from India in the 1960s, they took the practise of nose piercing with them, more as a symbol of defiance against civilization than anything else. Nostril piercing, nasal septum piercing, and bridge piercing are the three styles of nose piercings. The left nostril is normally drilled because ayurveda claims that this facilitates conception and relieves pains during menstruation. In the West, more and more people are experimenting with piercing, and nose piercing has become quite fashionable. A needle is inserted through the tissue and replaced with a piece of jewellery, such as a stud or a nose ring, for nose piercing. To hold studs in place, they normally have a screw behind them. Septum piercing is a procedure that involves puncturing the tissue within the nose, on the septum. Clips, barbells, tusks, and spikes are popular accessories for this type of piercing.

The bridge piercing is the most uncommon of all nose piercings, with barbells being the most common jewellery.
It is always wise to keep the position of the piercing in mind when buying jewellery for nose piercing and to find jewellery that will suit well. At the beginning, jewellery made of 14 or 18 carat gold, surgical steel, niobium, or titanium is safest, whereas sterling silver jewellery can only be worn until the piercing has healed.
A drilling gun can never be used to pierce the nose because it traumatises the skin and can lead to infections like HIV. While the piercing heals, which may take up to 12 months, extreme caution must be exercised. Never cover the piercing with dirty hands, keep it clean with antibacterial soap, and never remove the jewellery if completely necessary until the piercing has healed. This safeguards can help shield a nose piercing from injury.
