Although they’re typically teeny, the nose piercing adds a certain symmetry to the face and instantly upgrades your makeup look. As someone who loves piercings in general, I’m constantly perusing Instagram for inspo that emulates whatever look I’m debating in my head.

So, if you’re like me and itching to bedazzle your septum, get inspired by these Black beauties below!
