Nose rings can help to express who you are. Whether you decide to get a septum piercing or a normal stud in the side of your nostril, this can be a good way to express yourself to the outside world. These piercings come in as close second, possibly a third, in popularity to ear piercings and belly button piercings, but you can still make it your own. Here are some of the best reasons why you should get a nose ring:

  • For beauty purposes. Many people just like the way that nose piercings look, and I don’t blame them. This is simple way to adorn your body, without going overboard. Nose rings are a subtle way to show who you are.
  • Customizing your body. I mean, who doesn’t customize their bodies these days? From piercings to tattoos, it seems like everyone is expressing themselves through their skin, so why can’t you?
  • It could be for cultural reasons. Many women of Indian and South Asian descent choose to show their culture with nose rings. These rings have always been a sign of Indian and South Asian culture, especially when they are adorned. After getting your piercing, you do not have to large rings, but rather replace it with a small stud for every day wear..

    You can conceal it. Nose rings are very easy to conceal, especially if you are wearing a small stud, instead of a hoop. Even hoops can be taken out, if forgotten, without fear of closure of the piercing. A septum ring can also be easily concealed, as they it is common to flip them up into the nose or to wear a septum retainer.

  • It can help you create a community. Many subdivisions of people use facial piercings as part of the signs they belong to a certain group. For example, many cheerleaders wear small diamond studs, while many punk or goth kids use it for an atheistic to their look. A nose ring can help you to fit in with your group of friends, or even stand out from the crowd.
