Nose Ring History and Meaning
The earliest form of nose accessory was traced back from the cave dwellers or Homo sapiens. There were pieces of deer bones and woods that were said to adorn their nose piercings, wooden pieces were short and straight while the bones are in an arc shape. The Holy Bible also mentioned the use of nose rings as a form of jewelry in Ezekiel. Here, God described how he took care of Jerusalem, clothed it, gave it pieces of jewelry, and made it beautiful. Solomon islanders were known to wear tusk of pigs through their septum.
A Symbol of Wealth
In India, nose rings are called Nath. It is common for Meghwal women to wear one or two nose rings as a symbol of married life and wealth. Nose rings made of pearls, Kudan, and sapphires for royals and wealthy families while ordinary folks wear a Nath made from silver.
A Sacred Tradition
Nose jewels and piercing are not just for aesthetics but are a part of a scared tradition. In an Anand Karaj, the Sikh wedding ceremony, there is a Nath ritual wherein the maternal uncle of the bride would bring accessories like bracelets and nose rings that he would fit on to the bride on the day of the wedding as a preparation before the marriage ceremony.
Traditional Medical Practice
Nose piercing and the wearing of nose rings were a part of traditional medicinal practice in the Northern part of India. The left nostril is pierced to ease the monthly menstrual cycle, and birth as the left of the nose represents the reproduction system.
Fashion and Individuality
In the years of 1960s to 1980s, nose rings became a fashion accessory for punk and Goth styles. Although looked down at the beginning for some people, compare nose hoops as the same as the one they see in animals used for domestication. It became a symbol of individualism and as an act of rebellion against traditionalists.
Nowadays, wearing nose rings and studs are fashionable. It still is an expression of individuality, but more and more people are embracing the trend from executives to teens.
Types of Nose Piercings and Nose Rings
The most common piercing wherein the piercing is done on either the left or the right, sometimes both. The nose is pierced in the upper part of the wing of the nose (supra alar crease). This type of piercing is the most straightforward and most accessible, so various nose rings are used, these are nose bone, L-shaped nose pin, nose hoop, horseshoes, nostril screw, and captive bead ring.
Studs, L-shaped nose pin, and nostril screws are used in upper nostril piercings. This type of piercing has limited access and is challenging to do, so you better look for an experienced piercer if you want this type of piercing to prevent any unwanted complications.
The septum of piercing is commonly seen next to nostril piercings. Although this type is more complex, the piercing must go through the part in between the septum cartilage and the front of the nose. Circular barbells and captive bead rings are most applicable to this type of piercing.
Nose bone, curved barbells, and eyelets are the most common nose rings for a jungle or septril piercing. This is a gradual type of piercing to achieve, and it needs dedication and utmost care. A combination of a septum and rhino piercing that and is known to be an excruciating process.
The piercing of the skin on the bridge of the nose is considered a surface piercing. It is difficult to achieve, for it is prone to migration. An experienced piercer would know how deep he should pierce not to damage any veins and securely hold the nose ring. Circular and curved barbells may be used in this type of nose piercing.
Also known as, the rhino piercing, curved barbells are the most applicable nose ring for this type of piercing. The piercing runs through the upper part to the lower portion of the tip of the nose.
A combination of the septum and two nostril piercing, which is a total of three piercing altogether. It is done in one session with the use of a single needle later worn with a straight barbell.
