I'm planning on getting my nose pierced soon and still have no idea which side of my nose to get pierced! Left or right? I think nose piercings look nicer on the left but then when I imagine my nose pierced on the left it feels awkward! Probably because I'm a righty idk. LOL. Help! Which side of my nose should I get pierced? Left or right?

My ex had hers done on both sides at one point or another it looked better on the left I thought, but that was her better side too I think, so maybe pick your "best side" and go with that one!

I don't think it matters much, but everyone's face is different. Do which ever side looks the best. In India, the left nostril is pierced, if that influences your decision any.

And if you can't decide you can always get a septum or bridge piercing.

I have the left side of my nose pierced so I voted for that (I'm also right-handed, and haven't noticed any sort of imbalance), but as Khanner said, everyone's face is different. You might want to go with the "good" side of your face, but there's other things to think about to. I have long bangs that I wear swept to the right, so I felt like getting the ride side of my nose pierced might make that side of my face look "heavy." When you go to get it pierced, you can sort of get an idea of what it might look like when they mark the spot you're planning on piercing.

Ask yourself these questions first. When you are sleeping do you roll around a lot? Do you wipe your nose on your pillow, sleeve, or anything else?

I had my nose pierced for 5 years. I finally learned my lesson. I got infected so many times because it would snag and catch on everything. It was awful. I had the right side done. And now there is a nasty scar that looks like a gross black head.

I have my nose pierced on the left and my left ear pierced the most so it must be a handedness thing because I'm left-handed.

You can avoid this like I do and take it out at night. I don't keep a backing in mine because I was scared that I may end up with it up my nose. Also do to what you have mentioned. So now I take my nose ring out when I get home and when I go out I put it in. I have had since I was 20 and it has not closed up on me yet.

Left side! Nose piercings are hard to take care of and take forever to heal. Had mine for 5 years, had to take it out for two hours, couldn't get it back in. Had nothing but issues from it the entire time I had it.
