I finally changed out my nose stud. Originally when I got my nose pierced I wanted a hoop. However, you can’t get pierced with a hoop and then you have to wait (9 months) until it heals. My stud was white gold and for this I thought it might be silly to switch it out for a cheap metal. But, I finally did it &I can always change it back whenever I want to. I think the hoop is too big (my piercing is rather high,) but my friend Diana thinks I just need to get used to it.
