25 Crazy Nose Piercings You Need to See to Believe

You might be familiar with a cute little stud or a dazzling nosering but there are so many more possibilities when it comes to nose piercings. Yes, folks are getting rather creative these days with the types of piercings they get in their noses. Some people gauge new holes in their noses and others turn to subdermal implants to pierce the nose at the bridge. Still, others have so many different piercings in their nose that it looks almost like a pin cushion! The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to nose piercings today!

We wanted to get a better understanding of the limits of nose piercings so we turned to social media to learn what piercings are hot today and which ones are pushing the limits of what we might not even believe possible. Trust us when we tell you that people have found some truly remarkable ways to alter their noses. Below, you will find a list of piercings. We will start out with some standard piercings along with their names so you know what to ask for when you’re ready to get pricked. As the list goes on, we’ll reveal wilder piercings that might make some uncomfortable. So, consider yourself warned that some of these nose piercings are rather extreme!

The most common nose piercings are on the nostrils. Nostril piercings are pretty standard as you see in the above example. Nothing too scary, just cuteness!

Septum Piercings

After nostril piercings, septum piercings are the next most popular nose piercings. As you can see, they are also very cute, especially with a dainty piece of jewelry like this.

High Nostril Piercings

Very similar to a nostril piercing, a high nostril piercing is exactly what its name states: it’s located rather high up your nostril. These nose piercings are more painful than a standard nostril.

Nasallang Piercings

Similar to the nostril piercing but further up and connected is the nasallang piercing. A nasallang piercing is a single bar placed through the right nostril, the septum, and the left nostril. It is much more painful than a standard nostril or septum piercing because it essentially goes through the nose!

Austin Bar Piercings

Further down the nose, another bar piercing called an Austin bar sits right over the nostrils. It’s less common than many of the other nose piercings but still not too crazy.

Rhino Piercings

A rhino piercing is a cartilage piercing done vertically through the tip of the nose. Because there is a considerable amount of cartilage at the tip, these piercings take longer to heal than other nose piercings. We’re beginning to get into the crazier piercings, so brace yourself!

Third Eye Piercings

A third eye piercing is also known as Bindi piercing or unicorn piercing. The piercing is a perforation made between the eyebrows vertically at the bridge of the nose. Not too scary but it does look like it hurts.

Bridge Piercings
