Piercing Procedure
Ready to get a bridge piercing? Use our store locator to find your local Blue Banana Studio. There’s no need to book an appointment; you can simply go to the store of your choice and be pierced on the day. 

Make sure to check the bridge piercing age restriction before coming to store. It can help to avoid any undue disappointment. In a Blue Banana studio, the bridge piercing age restriction is 18 (ID may be required) or 16 with parental consent from a parent or guardian who is present. 

Once you’re all booked in, you will have some forms to fill out. A member of Blue Banana staff will go through the steps and can help you pick out jewellery. Then you can meet the piercer! They too will give you a quick consultation and briefing before discussing the bridge piercing location. 

The bridge piercing typically involves a sterilised gauge needle which your piercer will pass through the skin, inserting the jewellery in the process. Your piercer will pinch the top of your nose to ensure they can put the needle as deep as possible into the skin to reduce the chance of rejection. The piercing site is cleaned thoroughly and marked with a pen first so you can check that you are happy with the location.

Aftercare Advice

A bridge piercing can take 3-4 months to fully heal. The healing time varies from person to person and will need top aftercare to ensure speedy healing. It is important to be aware that with any surface piercing, such as a bridge piercing, there is a higher chance the piercing will reject so make sure to keep a watch for any signs of this. If you think your piercing is starting to reject or migrate then please talk to your piercer who can help you decide the best course of action.

During the healing process, it is important to avoid knocking the piercing or putting pressure on the area as this will slow down healing and can even cause unnecessary problems. For example, be careful when wearing glasses or sunglasses, don’t touch the piercing unless absolutely necessary, and avoid contact with any kind of cosmetics including moisturisers. The location of the bridge piercing means it may not be suitable for glasses wearers as they sit on the bridge of the nose. 

Like any piercing, it is important to maintain top hygiene when caring for your bridge piercing. Sticking to your aftercare routine for your bridge piercing will help limit potential infections and ensure your piercing gets the best chance at healing quickly. Gently clean your bridge piercing twice a day with salt water solution or Tea Tree Oil by gently bathing it using cotton wool.

Choosing Piercing Jewellery
choosingImage

There’s plenty of options when it comes to bridge piercing jewellery from Blue Banana. Some popular styles include:

  • Bridge Piercing Jewellery
  • Bridge Piercing Barbell
  • Bridge Piercing Surface Bar

 Your piercer may choose a barbell or surface bar that is slightly longer to allow room for swelling. It is vital for the healing process that you remain patient and don’t change your jewellery until your piercer has advised you to do so. Once your piercing is healed you can switch to a shorter barbell.

There are a range of colours and designs to choose from in our barbell and surface jewellery ranges. When choosing your piercing jewellery there are a few things you should consider:

  • Jewellery Size – Make sure to find out from your piercer the size your bridge piercing jewellery should be. The length may vary depending on the amount of skin you have at the top of your nose.
  • Jewellery Material – piercing materials differ not only through their look but also how they could react to your skin. If you have sensitive skin that may be prone to irritation, one of the many Titanium jewellery options is recommended. This material comes in a variety of colours and is durable too!

 If you regularly participate in sports, you may want to discuss the best piercings for you with your piercer.

When searching for a piece of jewellery make sure you know your measurements.  We display the piercing jewellery measurements as Gauge first (displayed in millimetres) then Length, e.g. 1.2mm x 8mm.

  • Gauge – this is the thickness of the jewellery itself.
  • Length – the length of the piercing bar, usually not including the ball.

 We generally recommend that for new piercings you choose longer jewellery. This can allow for extra room in case of any swelling. Make sure to check out the tips from our piercing guides for information about changing and removing piercing jewellery.
