How To Insert A Nose Stud
Before you insert your nose stud, make sure to wash your hands - and disinfect the piercing area to ensure no germs will come in contact with the nose stud or your piercing site. Without cleaning the nose stud or your hands, you have a much higher chance of your nose piercing becoming infected.
To lower the chance of germs being transfered to your nose stud, make sure to hold the diamond, or stone of the nose stud instead of the rod when inserting the nose stud. Place the end of the stud over your piercing, and slide the nose stud in.
If when inserting the nose stud it feels tight or is not going in smoothly, it may be that you have the wrong gauge. You can try twisting the nose stud as you push it in which may make it easier to insert.
After the nose stud is all the way through, you can put an Oring backing on it, to prevent the nose stud from coming out.
