How can I remove grey blotch on my nose caused by wearing a silver nose stud? (photos)

It seems as if the silver stud has become tarnished and bleeded into my skin, like a tattoo. I've had something there for a while but didn't have the time/couldn't be bothered dealing with it. Now it is quite noticeable and I'm tired of piling make up on it. I have been told taking the (fully healed) piercing out would just lock the grey patch in there like a tattoo. Is laser an option?
