If you want to add a little spin to a regular nostril piercing, consider getting a high nostril piercing. A high nostril piercing is similar to a nose piercing, but it sits higher along the nasal bridge. The piercing is made at the highest point of the nostril, but below the bridge. The piercing is usually done with a hollow 18- or 20-gauge needle.
Healing time: Around six to nine months. This type of piercing takes longer to heal than regular nose piercings.
High nostril piercing jewelry: Nose studs and nose screws. Due to the higher location of the piercing, the popular nose rings you can use with a regular nose piercing cannot be used with this type of piercing. It can also be tricky to switch out your jewelry, so reach out to your piercer if you need help.
