A change in nose piercing styles. In the past the normal place to put a nose stud is in the natural crease of the nose, setting the head of the stud in this visually prominent position. Now we want the piercing much lower to accommodate a small ring.
The nose jewellery market is the fastest growing of all piercings, the huge amount of people getting nose piercings is astounding. I would love to see some statistics on this. I know that in my own studio nose piercings have trebled within the last year.
