So, promise mom and dad that you will only use small piercings, like studs, nose rings, etc. When it comes to jewelry, a good thumb rule is not to wear anything that would larger than your forefinger nail area. Think about it, you certainly wouldn’t want to go around lugging a heavy nose ring for the simple fact that the weight in question can actually cause your nose to deform. It’s a fact that the weight of the nose ring will place a stress on the nose, causing the hole to widen over a period of time, more the reason as to why you should opt for small rather than big.

And here’s the added bonus, parents are more apt to agree to this if you can convince them that the nose piercing is not permanent and as an added bonus, you would be opting for a light wear trendy nose ring as opposed to clunky and heavy ones.
