Septum piercing has definitely become somewhat a trend, however, it is certainly not a new piercing. For ages, we have seen older women from rural areas donning it. Upon questioning, they’d reveal they got the middle of their nose pierced at a very young age while they were kids by a woman who specialized in the village.
We agree that the septum piercing looks intimidating but again, more and more people wish to flaunt a hoop through the middle of their nose. While we see a handful of daring people getting it, others are still too scared. This is simply because they do not know much about the pain they may endure, pros and cons, healing process etc.
What is Septum?
The septum is a thin wall of cartilage that runs down the centre of your nose. This essentially separates your right and left nostrils. Your piercing should go through the softer space of the tissue. A septum piercing shouldn’t penetrate the cartilage. In this article, we have listed down below some important things you may want to know or keep in mind before you get one:
Pick Someone Professional
Since it is a little complicated piercing, it is best to go to a professional who has full knowledge of what they are doing. Most importantly, they have the right equipment.
Pain & Healing Time
Pain is 7 on a level from 1 to 10. Healing will take six to eight months of piercing given that the piercing is done right and your piercing is healing well without getting infected.
Lookout for Infection or Irritation
You must thoroughly clean your piercing every day. Soak with saline solution two times per day and avoid unnecessary touching.
What Jewelry Material Should be Used for Septum Piercing?
As starter jewelry, you can try as small as 18 gauge, but 16 and 14 gauge suit a fuller nose much better. Jewelry material can be gold, stainless steel, and titanium.
