I have had both of my nostrils pierced for about 6 months. neither of them has ever fallen out or been pulled out, ever. what the hell are you doing in your sleep!? and FYI, band-aids can #1 trap bacteria, causing infection, and #2 pull the piercing out when you remove the band aid....so, not a good idea...be more careful next time OP.
Maybe they pulled it out themself. My family is full of sleep walkers and talkers. My sis is the worse, shes a thirsty sleep walker. I caught her trying to get water out of the toilet in her sleep once, she said she was "thirsty". Another time she drank a bottle of perfume in her sleep.
118, if you go to a reputable piercer, you can get your nose pierced with a barbell with a push-fit end instead of a nostril screw. the barbells can't be pulled out unless you yank it REALLY hard. I've got an L-bar in one nostril and a barbell in the other...thankfully I've never had the misfortune of either one falling/being pulled out (the barbell'd one healed a lot faster though).
141, if you go to a reputable piercer they'll tell you to completely avoid those barbell things, and yes, I've had my nose pierced for nearly three years, done in one of the most reputable places in the country and the guy went on for five minutes about how shit they are and how they just rip your piercing open when you change the jewellery
195, must not be the same kind of barbell. was your piercer a member of the APP like mine was? probably not...because guess what, I can remove & replace the barbell just fine. if you have trouble with it, go to the piercer to have the jewelry changed (which is better to do with a piercing like that anyway). I don't appreciate being bashed for trying to help someone who had a problem, thanks.
also 195, you're in Ireland and I'm in America. so I don't know how different your jewelry over there is. but you're probably thinking of some kind of externally threaded barbell, which would without a doubt injure the piercing upon removal/insertion. the kind I'm talking about has no threading; one ball is attached to the hollow barbell and the other ball is a push-in, so you don't even have to twist it. I don't know why your piercer would tell you that something like that would be bad.
Your pillow has a vendetta out for you. Sleep with one eye, or nostril, open.
Ouch! I woulda put two on, like in a cross style for safe measures.
yeah except putting even one band-aid on a piece of jewelry (especially in a fresh piercing!) that has no secure end will #1 trap bacteria around it which could lead to infection and #2 pull out the jewelry when said band-aid is removed. if you know you toss and turn a lot in your sleep (at least to the point that something like this could happen), a nose piercing probably isn't for you.
39: read my replies to #1. 80: it's not bad at all (no piercing is as bad as you think it'll be...except ear cartilage. those fucking suck). I've got both of mine done, and both times it hurt a little but mostly my eyes watered a LOT, lol. so if you want it, go for it! and make sure you ask the piercer how to mix a sea salt solution and how to clean the piercing with it. if the piercer tells you to use bactine or ear care, they do NOT know what they're talking about and in that case, I'd suggest going to piercingbible.com and contacting elayne angel. good luck!
180, everyone experiences piercing pain differently. I have 7 cartilage piercings and IMO an industrial sucks to get WAYYYYYYYYY more than a nostril. yet my daith hurt more to get than my industrial. so eh. my point is nothing's really as bad as you anticipate, and even then, it's still not unbearable. and when you get it over with you feel all good about yourself, lol.
that really sucks. I've had mine pulled out before but never pulled out by a pillow :/
