    Left side is traditional, but I have heard that in the south it's the right.

    I don't know about the tradition in Bangalore but I'm Punjabi and it's usually on the left side for us.

    The piercing on the left is traditional because Ayurvedic medicine associates this with reproduction - it's said to make childbirth easier and increase pleasure from sex. I have mine done on the right though.

    PS I'm not Indian, thought this might be helpful anyway

    Ahh fair enough, better to get that kind of information straight from the source rather than off the internet like I did :') My fam's from Calcutta, I got my nose pierced on the right side and my mother still chastises me for getting it done on the "wrong side"

    I'm not Indian but I have my nose pierced on the right side. Since getting it done I've noticed that the majority of people (Indian, white, everyone!) seems to have it on the left!
