Inside: The best same side double nose piercing ideas & how to style them.
Sometimes even the most beautifully minimal piercings need a little something extra.
I love minimalism with piercings, but even more than that I love something fun, funky, and unique.
While same side double nose piercings may not be the most unique piercing, they’re definitely not overdone! So I love when I see someone flawlessly execute the double nose piercing, whether it’s double studs, double hoops, or a mix, it’s always so cute.
If you’re considering it, I’m here to convince you to do it. Because I personally love it, so I think you should do it. And that totally makes sense.
I’m here to answer all of your questions about it and give you all the cute inspiration you need to go ahead and book that appointment!
The fun part about these is, they can still look minimal even with having two. If you want them to. Make it your own!
How Much Does It Cost
Different shops are likely going to have vastly different prices for a piercing like this. The average nose piercing costs around $30 to $80 depending on different variables, but your shop may require you to simply pay double for getting it double pierced.
It’s possible that they could bundle them together at a discounted rate, but it’s also possible that they could charge a little extra for a more difficult process of piercing a small space that’s already pierced.
As you’re asking around for rates, you’ll want to get clarification on these points, just so you know exactly what it is you’re paying for.
The variables that make the prices of the price of the piercing so broad are the piercer and the location. You pay for a piercer’s experience, and their history in the piercing industry should reflect their prices. I always think this is a worthy investment to know you’re getting someone that really knows what they’re doing piercing your skin! I know plenty of people open to letting newer piercers do what they want, and I love that! That’s how they learn. But there are some more intricate piercings I’m more interested in being more knowledgeable about.
You should expect and plan to pay the higher prices for a more experienced piercer working on something as detailed as this double piercing.
The location of the shop matters too of course because shops each have their own minimums and requirements, and since some states are generally more expensive than others, piercing shop prices will reflect that. So getting pierced in Oklahoma may be cheaper than California, even for a similarly experienced piercer.
How Much Does It Hurt
My nose piercing didn’t hurt all that much. Just your average sting of a piercing. And my eye watered on that side. As a natural response of course, I wasn’t crying…
No pain scale will be truly accurate when everyone perceives pain differently. So don’t pay too much mind to what anyone else says about how bad it does or doesn’t hurt.
However, I will say that after the first one, your nose is likely going to be pretty tender. So you’ll need to be pretty prepared that while the first one may not hurt too bad, the second one might.
Just take a little Tylenol and you’ll be alright.
How To Heal And Not Get Infected
Healing this piercing is pretty simple.
The same saline wash you would use for any of your other piercings you can use for your nose.
Find a piercing cleaning solution or a simple saline solution at any store or buy from your piercer. Just be sure it’s a non-nasal saline spray, they look similar but it has other chemicals that will irritate your piercing.
Use a cotton swab to get all under the piercing and under the stud as best you can.
A pro tip my piercer told me: sleep with a bandaid over it loosely the first few nights to protect it from snagging.
Keeping your piercing from getting snagged in your sleep and while you’re changing and washing your face will help it heal so much faster! I also think the band aid helped lock in the saline and keep it working overnight while I slept, and then let it air out during the day. I never had issues with the “bump” that so many people experience. I can’t technically attribute it all to the band aid but I do anyway.
What Does The Scar Look Like
Unless there’s a lot of pulling, snagging, and stretching, you won’t see a scar from a nose piercing. There will likely be a tiny residual hole that you can’t really get jewelry through again, but you won’t be able to see it. It’s rare that nose piercings close all the way up.
Even if you could see it, the nose usually has so much texture anyway that it won’t be noticeable!

If your favorite piercing you see is a nose piercing, you’re going to love these. Getting to do a little more than the bare minimum makes it all a little bit more exciting, and I always anticipate the results a little more.
