What type of tool should be used to pierce my nose?

Nose piercing

Needles are the best method to pierce a nose. Using a needle allows precise placement, minimizes pain, and creates a small hole. Piercing guns were designed to pierce ear lobes, which are an easier place to pierce than the thick cartilage of the nose. Discuss body piercing methods and placement to be completely comfortable beforehand. You may also ask to see your piercer's past work. A bad piercing job can lead to an unsightly scar.
