It does not matter whether you are experienced with piercings or have just gotten your first one, knowing how to take the jewelry out can be complicated.
Taking a nose stud out with a flat back can seem complex and difficult, but it is actually much easier than you think. The reason it has a flat end is because it makes the jewelry secure in your nose.
To remove, you will want to use your finger to push at the non-flat end so it stays in place. With your other hand you can then gently, but firmly, pull on the other end to release the pin from the hole.
In this article we shall take a look in more detail on how to take out a nose stud with a flat back, and other types of nose piercing jewelry.
What Is The Easiest Way To Remove Nose Stud With Flat Back?
If you have a push-pin type of nose stud, then you might be wondering what the easiest way is to remove it. Follow these steps to make sure you can remove it quickly and easily every single time.
Step 1 - Push The Inside
To begin, use your finger to push the outside of the stud away from the inner wall of your nose. This will keep the jewelry in place and allow for grip.
If you find that the jewelry seems slippy, then you should wipe it dry using a tissue. This will ensure you have the best grip.
Step 2 - Grab The jewelry
Now that the nose stud is away from the inner wall of your nose, you should grip the flat end of the nose stud with your thumb and index finger. Make sure that you have a good grip.
Step 3 - Pull On The Nose Stud
Give the nose stud a wiggle slightly and pull on it. As you do, use your thumb and index finger to hold the outer end of the nose stud too.
Soon you will feel the flat end of the nose stud coming away and you will be able to remove the pin of the nose stud fully.
How Can You Remove A Nose Stud?
There are many different types of nose studs available. This can make it difficult if you have never had to remove the nose jewelry before.
However, you may have just never removed this type of stud before, despite having had your nose pierced for years.
Here are some tips on removing other kinds of nose studs:
How Do You Remove A Nose Bone Nose Stud?
A nose bone stud can be very painful to remove if you do not lubricate the end of it first. This allows for it to pass through the hole with as little pain as possible.
To remove, apply something like vaseline on the inner ball end of the nose stud. Using both hands, place your thumb and index finger on the ball end of the nose stood, and the outer end of the nose stud.
Use a push and pull system to gently remove the nose stud. This means pushing at one end and then pulling at the other. Take as much time as you need to minimize any pain you might feel.
How Do You Remove A Labret Nose Stud?
There are two different types of labret nose studs. One has a pin similar to a flat end nose stud, and the other has a ball on the end which threads to the nose stud.
For the one with the pin, use your thumb and index finger to pinch the inner end of the labret stud.
Take your other thumb and index finger and twist the outer end of the labret to remove the jewel pin that sits inside. You can then remove both parts.
It is the exact same with the ball version too. Place your thumb and index finger onto the inner side of the stud while putting your other fingers on the outer ball. Twist the ball off and gently remove the nose stud.
How Do You Remove A Nostril L Nose Stud?
It is super easy to remove an L shaped nose stud. You can either push it from the bottom so it hangs down over your nose once in the L position, where you will then need to push it again to release it.
Or you can pull it out of your nose from the top of the nose stud - however this might be something that you do if you have had your nose pierced for a long time. It should not hurt no matter how you remove the L shaped nose stud.
How Do You Remove A Corkscrew Nose Stud?
A corkscrew nose stud can look very complicated. Fortunately it is removed in a similar way to the L shaped nose stud. However, you will want to be extra gentle.
Push your nose stud so the metal part of it is hanging towards the bottom of your nostril. Pull at the stud downwards, and then twist it. At this point it should be able to roll out from your nose.
If you are not feeling confident, take your time when removing a corkscrew nose stud.
How Do You Remove A Nose Ring?
If you have a nose ring hoop, then you will be happy to know that it is really easy to remove. All you need to do is open it or remove the ball and align the opening with the hole. You can then pull the nose ring out.
Having a nose stud looks great, but it can be nerve wrecking to remove certain types of studs. Fortunately, all types of nose studs are easy to remove - even though some are easier to remove than others.
Whether you have a flat back nose stud, a labret, an L shape or even a nose bone style, you will be able to remove it with ease when you have the know-how.
