My sister and I did a thing the other day. We went to get our noses pierced! We were both ready for some tiny boldness. It’s always a good time to have a little rebellion together, and there’s no time like the present.
So, we went down to Texas Tattoo Emporium and Byriah did our left nostrils. If you ever pierce your nose, it’s best to do the left nostril. It’s a thing. I was surprised by how much it didn’t hurt. He told me to exhale. So I just exhaled, through my nose (thanks yoga), which may have been kind of awkward for Byriah’s work, and then it was done.
Why a nose piercing? They’re supposed to be very good for women, actually, and help alleviate lady problems. Also, they’re cute. While the new piercings are healing, my sister and I have been shopping around to find the cutest jewelry to put in once it is ok to change out.
Where to Buy Cute Nose Studs
Anyway, these are a few of my favorite jewelry designers. Before committing to a stone, it’s also fun to research the gemstone meanings and properties to find the stone that will be best for you right now. I should have gone to school for jewelry design instead of fine arts! Everything looks so cool and well-crafted. Maybe it’s never too late to take on a new craft like this, if only I could focus on one thing for long enough.
Mariah Tash makes the cutest jewelry for less-common piercings. Although honestly, so many girls have a nose stud these days that it’s not that uncommon. She’s constantly unveiling new high-end contemporary jewelry designs for body jewelry.
Maria Black is a high-end British jewelry designer who specializes in contemporary sculptural takes on vintage nineties jewelry classics.
Ok, she doesn’t make nose jewelry. But she should! I love Joy Smith’s story, and how she found her craft at night after coming home from her art gallery day job. The quirkiness of her hand carved lost wax method designs is so inviting. I did a little bit of lost wax sculpture in school, and always love to see the hand of the artist in designs.
