How to put in an l shaped nose ring?

An l shaped nose ring is pretty fascinating. Many people call it a faux nose ring even though it requires a piercing. This is probably because it has a unique way of insertion, even though it looks exactly like a nose piercing. However, they can be a bit confusing to put on. Here is how to do it:
1. Sanitation is key. Make sure everything is clean and free of germs that could cause infections.
2. The metal part that is supposed to be placed into the nose is l shaped. So, you need to make sure it is straight as you push it into your piercing.
3. Place a finger in your nose to act as a guide. Slowly, insert the part before the bend until you reach the other half.
4. Now you need to tilt the nose ring to the other bend that can go straight into your piercing. Use your finger to make sure that the previous part is now bent downwards. This will also act as a guard to prevent your nose ring from falling out.
5. Once the metal part is wholly inserted, adjust it until it looks like a regular nose ring. It will now stay in place with ease.
These nose rings may be sturdy, but they aren’t too difficult to take off. You just need to take it slow and be careful. This is crucial so that you don’t end up poking yourself or ending up with an uncomfortable nose ring.
