How to Put in a Corkscrew Nose Ring

A corkscrew nose ring is more tricky and complicated to insert and to take out when compared to other different kinds of nose rings. Unlike the simple or normal shape of nose studs and rings, a corkscrew nose ring consists of a metal wire which is twisted with an odd shape. Since a corkscrew nose ring or a nose screw is a combination of circular and straight wire, inserting it in your nose piercing takes a bit different moves. Read on and learn how to put in a corkscrew nose ring easily without getting hurt.

  • Don’t forget to wash your hands and nose with antibacterial soap, and disinfect the jewelry first before you attempt to insert the corkscrew nose ring.
  • Soak a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide and clean the nose ring thoroughly.
  • Dip the part of the corkscrew nose ring that will be placed inside the nose or the metal wire into some antibiotic ointments like Neosporin. But, make sure that the ointment doesn’t come on the upper part of the corkscrew (that will show on the outer part of the nose). Because, this upper part needs to be dry and clean for a tight, good grip.
  • Then, insert the end of the jewelry into your piercing hole. Gently, twist the ring in a clockwise motion or keep twisting it in till all the metal part is inserted.
  • Tilt the ring slightly up and slowly push inward, once the metal part is over, while you keep twisting it in a clockwise motion. You can also try twisting counterclockwise wise motion, if clockwise motion doesn’t work.
  • Finish inserting the corkscrew nose ring by twisting in the straight wire remainder which follows the corkscrew.
  • Remember that, if your nose piercing is fresh, you need to wait for at least two months to change your nose ring. Wait until your nose piercing has healed completely.
  • If the process of inserting this corkscrew nose ring cause bleeding or draws blood, stop inserting the jewelry. Clean the piercing with hydrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol and consult your doctor or professional piercer.
