Quick Take: Customized Fishtail Nose Rings

customizing nose jewelry

Having a hard time finding standard nose rings that fit comfortably? Then you might just have a unique sizing need, which can be accomplished by having a piercer custom fit your nose jewelry. Here’s how it works:

First, you’ll want to purchase what’s called a fishtail nose ring. This is an extra long, straight piece of nose jewelry that’s specifically made to be custom fit. Because the fishtail is about 19mm, or 3/4″ long, and it has no shaping or bulb to hold it in place, it can’t be worn as is.

Then you’ll take the fishtail to your piercer and have them do the fitting. First, the piercer will use a special device to measure your nose, and then they’ll custom bend the long end. The two most common types of bends will be either a nose screw (the standard type of nose ring that looks like a corkscrew), or an l-shape, which literally leaves the item in the shape of an upper case L.
