What piercings are nose piercings?
Well there are a lot of piercings that can be done on or through the nose. You have the nasallang (a bar through both nostrils and the septum at once),
the high nostril,
the nostril piercing,
the septum piercing,
the bridge or Erl piercing,
the austin bar (through the tip of the nose)…
A nostril piercing in particular, is comparable to a cartilage piercing. The tissue where it ideally will be placed is not cartilage but fatty tissue that is somewhat stiffer, harder, thicker than skin. The actual cartilage of the nose sits higher up the nostril.
