Can I get a nose piercing with MS?
There are no problems, related to the diagnosis of MS, of any body art including piercings and tattoos. Some tattoo dyes may have ferromagnetic properties that can heat up in a magnet and cause irritation. Piercings do not create a problem unless they cannot be removed during the MRI procedure.
