For those with nose piercings: What gague is your nose ring? What do you keep in it?

Mine WAS 16g, but the nose screw I had kept irritating my nose, so I let it go down to a 20g and started keeping posts in it. Now those keep coming out at night, so I think I'm going to switch to nose screws again, since the 20g ones are flexible enough to bend it to conform with my nose shape better. Right now I have a semi-hoop in it and I like it for the most part.

  • Mine's a 16g screw; I have thick cartilage in my nose and ears and a 20g nose post won't go all the way through. I do occasionally put a 20g hoop in it though (I don't like the way a huge 16g hoop looks).

  • Mine was 18g wen I had it. My lip ring is 16g and it seems like it would be huge for a nose piercing!!!!!

  • That's what I thought lol, but it actually wasn't that big. My lip and eyebrow are 16g.
