If you think you’re seeing more and more people, even celebrities have septum piercing, high chances that you are right. Septum piercing has been one of the most significant trends in 2019 and continues to bloom all over 2020. Most female celebrities, including Rihanna, Zendaya, Jessica Biel, and so many more rock this style one moment or twice. If you’re planning to have one, here is your ultimate guide. From explaining what is a septum piercing, to rate on pain level and advice on piercing aftercare, we got them all for you. Let’s get into it.
In the most straightforward word, septum piercing is a piercing that goes right through the then bit of skin and flesh between your nostrils. The location is called the septum, or nasal septum. In the piercing session, the piercer will guide the needles through the septum and then put your chosen piece of jewelry in, which is often a ring, horseshoe, and even a bar.
The piercing will hurt, let’s make it clear. But will it be extremely hurt? We have to say no, it’s not that hurt. Sure there will be a little uncomfortable here and there since it’s a sharp needle pushing through the skin. But as our research base on the feedback of our customers, the pain level is just a bit above a standard ear piercing. Most of our clients said that septum piercing feels just like a sharp pinch, and your eyes will be watery occasionally. However, it’s not too bad at all. Believe in your piercer, if they are professional enough, the process will happen in a blink of an eye.
Due to our experience, this is how the process should work. Things will be different from place to place, but this is what happens. We show you our process so that whenever you step into a studio, you’ll know what will be going on.
First, the piercer will have to check your ID. Apart from ear piercing, which can be done at the age of 16 or even lower, septum piercing requires clients to be at least 18 and above.
Next, the piercer will explain what they will do to you carefully and make sure that you’re ready for the process. Then you can choose your piece of jewelry, don’t forget to ask your piercer for advice then you will know which is better for your fresh septum piercing.
Now it will be time to prepare the utensils. Piercer will prepare and sterilize needles as well as the working surface. And all left is the actual septum piercing process. After this, you’ll need some right amount of time to sit back, relax, and calm down.
A typical septum piercing will take at least a good 6-8 months to heal completely. However, at the time of 6-8 weeks, you can change the jewelry. One more tip, which might sound weird but works so well, is dipping the tip of your nose in 2-3% salted water. And that’s it, a septum piercing aftercare is simple, but remember to be aware of any infection to treat it properly.
