This is one of those things that gets spread around but that no one that I know of has ever actually seen happen. I wish I could say that none of the women I have done this piercing on have experienced lessened sensitivity but the truth is I do not know. Sometimes we don’t get the opportunity for feedback that we wish was there with every customer. The women that I have heard back from have reported a period of adjustment followed by “business as usual”.
Regardless of your pain tolerance, this is a painful piercing. Probably the most intense thing a woman can do in this regard. That said I would recommend seeking out a piercer who has actual experience performing this piercing and portfolio photos to prove it.
Let me know if I can help in any other way!
Anonymous said: Hi there! I've had my nasal piercing in my nostril for about three months now, and have noticed I'm prone to getting dry skin just in the area directly around the piercing. Is this normal, and what works best to help it go away? Thank you!
Washing and scrubbing our faces exfoliates dead skin and keeps us looking fresh and delicious. Typically when we get a new piercing, the area directly around it no longer gets scrubbed. Dead skin will build up as it would everywhere if we didn’t maintain ourselves.
I would scrub gently around the piercing with a Q-tip to remove any dead/dry skin.
