In order to make our inventory as exhaustive as possible, in this section we will discuss the more outrageous and seldom-seen nose piercings.

Austin Bar:

A very rare form of piercing which is done through the tip of the nose. It does not traverse the nostrils or the septum, but runs horizontally through the nasal cap. Its name comes from the first person to have worn it. The jewelry most commonly used for this type of piercing is a barbell.

The healing process generally lasts between 2 and 3 months.

Healing and care:

A vertical bridge piercing can take between 3 and 6 months to heal completely, rarely longer. Like other external piercings, in the first three weeks it should be cleaned with ProntoLind spray twice a day, and then coated with ProntoLind gel. It is important to wash your hands before touching the pierced area and the jewelry itself. By caring for the piercing in the correct manner and with the proper materials, you will rarely have to deal with cases of proud flesh.

Disinfectant solutions containing alcohol or chlorine should be avoided.

Nasallang:

A rare form of nose piercing which runs through both nostrils and the septum.

Just imagine perforating the nose entirely, from left to right—and you’ve got a nasallang piercing.

This piercing is a combination of two nostril piercings and an elevated septum piercing, all three of whose piercing canals are on the same horizontal plane and connected by a barbell. It can be performed all at once, but we would recommend starting with either a nostril or the septum and proceeding step-by-step.

This form of piercing has its origins in India and was taken to be a sign of the male warrior’s bravery.

Healing and care:

A nasallang piercing can take between 3 and 6 months to heal completely, rarely longer. Like other external piercings, in the first three weeks it should be cleaned with ProntoLind spray twice a day, and then coated with ProntoLind gel. It is important to wash your hands before touching the pierced area and the jewelry itself.

Nose tip piercing:

Also known as Rhino piercing, the nose tip piercing runs from the tip of the nose toward the inside and comes back out through the nostril.

Outwardly it is characterized simply by a ball on the tip of the nose.

Very rare and hard to find in Europe.

Healing and care:
