Nose Piercing Receiving Tube

When doing a nostril piercing a tool is required to catch the needle on the inside of the nostril.

Most Piercer's will use a receiving tube, which is made for this application. A receiving tube can be made in plastic, glass or stainless steel.

The plastic tubes are disposable, as they would melt in an autoclave machine for sterilization.

The glass or steel can be used over & over again, as they can be properly sterilized. Glass can break, if dropped, which is an obvious drawback. The steel can be more expensive but the most reliable.

Some Piercer's will use a cork to catch the needle. The cork can only be used a single time and can be a less comfortable method for the person being pierced.
