Hi there! I got my nose pierced in mid-March, making it about 4 months since I got it. I want to switch to a hoop--not the loose kind, but the ones that have a snug fit..hope i'm explaining it right. Do those hoops tear your skin, causing a slit? And do you recommend me changing my piercing right now or wait a little longer? MANY THANKS!
It’s been 4 months, so I think you can change your piercing at this point, so long as it’s healed completely. As for the kind of hoop that’s most likely to cause slits, I don’t believe it matters that much whether the hoop is snug or loose (though I could be wrong about that). I think what really matters is how heavy or light the hoop jewelry is. Let your piercer know that you’re worried about a nose slit, and they’ll likely help you pick out an appropriate hoop and change it for you.
