Pin It: LBB's Favourite Spots For Nose Studs & Rings

Navni posted on 12 May

I had my nose pierced back in 11th grade on an impulse, while I was slurping on a milkshake in GK1 M block market {as the cool kids did back then}, hovering around the silver jewellery shops with the prime objective of window shopping. Almost a decade and a couple of hundred nose pins later, here’s a list of tried and tested places you really should stick your nose into.

Amrapali

On the expensive side, you may want to drag your parents {or bae} here to get your nose a little present. They’ve got stuff ranging from basic traditional silver nose studs and rings to the more embellished nathnis done up in pearls and various semi-precious stones in both silver and gold finishes.

The guy here is famous for leaning across the counter and piercing your body parts without so much as even asking you to take a seat {yikes, you may think, but he has a huge fan following}.
