Nose Piercing Procedure

One of the most frequently asked questions about nose piercing involves the use of a nose piercing gun. A nose piercing should never be performed with a piercing gun (some piercing studios use piercings guns for nostril piercings). This is because it can shatter the cartilage that is being pierced. Some piercers use a Studex system which customers sometimes confuse with a piercing gun but at Blue Banana, we will always use a needle to perform piercings. This is because it is a safer way to perform piercings that gives cleaner and more precise results allowing for smoother healing.

Make sure to check the nose piercing age restriction before coming to store. It can help to avoid any undue disappointment. In a Blue Banana studio, nose piercing age restrictions vary between each piercing. 

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 nostril piercing location.

Nose piercing price will vary depending on the type of nose piercing you are having. The cheapest is the nostril piercing which is usually £30 - £35. The septum nose piercing cost is £38 - £43.
