"I Psyched Myself Out For THAT?" -- The Story Of My Septum

It's funny, really. Ever since I first got interested in body piercing (which was about 8 years ago, at age 13), I've been slightly turned off to the idea a septum piercing. Something about the way they looked just didn't rub me right. Now I'll admit that they look good on a lot of people, but I never really considered it as something I might personally do. Thus far, I've gotten navel, industrial, labret, tongue and nostril piercings. Though I no longer have my tongue or my labret, they were both wonderful experiences and I still fondly look back on ... read more

My Second (Third!) double nostril.

My Second Nostril! I've already written about my first nostril piercing, but I thought I'd talk about my second (technically third) nostril piercing as well. Now. I'd already had twinned nostril piercings at one point, lovely cute little things but unfortunately a month or so after I'd got the second hole done I'd developed the bastarding bump on the top of the hole. Needless to say I was gutted, I spent weeks trying to get it to calm down, sea salt soaks, babying it, tea tree compresses but nothing would make it go away. I wouldn't have minded too much, ... read more

Finally - a pretty nose piercing!

I've always thought nose piercings were cute - to be specific, the ones where you just have a small stone in the curve of the nostril (I know - unique, huh?). I don't really think the other ones are for me, but to each her own. In high school, several people I knew had ones, but my parents were dead-set against my getting one, so I sulked and forgot about it. For the next couple years, if somebody mentioned one, I would idly think about how I wished I could get that piercing, and then move on with my life. ... read more

My not-so-well-planned-out septum piercing.

I love piercings. Piercings, tattoos...anything of the sort. I've always been into it. They fascinate me, and I love seeing them on people. That's why I come here often - to see pictures of amazing piercings and tattoos that amaze me. So, I've wanted my septum pierced forever. Since getting my earlobes done long ago, I've always wanted more piercings, and so I started out slow - first a cartilage piercing in my left ear, then a nostril piercing done by a friend, one lip piercing in 2007, and one lip piercing earlier this year. I thought I was gonna ... read more

Crunch!

I have always wanted my septum pierced. When I first saw one I knew I wanted one, much to the chagrin of my parents and sister, who were still of the mind set that it is a "bull piercing". When I finally turned 18 I knew it was going to be my first piercing. A lot of my friends have septum piercings and when I asked them about it they all had different stories to tell. Some said it was the most painful piercing they have ever had and others said it felt like nothing. I was a bit worried ... read more

My Little Nose Screw

Lets start off by saying I never use to like nose piercings, I thought they were ridiculous and not very attractive. I had surgery on my nose about a year ago and I've felt like my nose doesn't look the same. Usually when I get a piercing, it comes out of the blue...oh I want my belly button pierced, my cartliege pierced...and this time it was no different. I wanted my nose pierced and I wanted it as soon as possible. My friend and I were talking about getting pierced and I told her I wanted my nose done and ... read more

A new experience.

I had been wanting another piercing for a very long time, after having only many ear piercings and stretched lobes for the longest while I needed something different. I didn't want a lip piercing yet, or an eyebrow piercing, or a tongue piercing. The last time I got anything done was my tattoo back in June, and it had been MONTHS so I was really itching to get something done. I decided(rather randomly) that I ought to get my nose pierced. I figure it'd be a rather easy piercing, and it wouldn't be too much trouble. I found a local ... read more

My first REAL piercing.

I had already made up my mind and I had decided that I was going to get my nose pierced by the time I was 13 years old. Although, it would seem that my parents aren't exactly the type who approve of any form of body piercing because it's 'altering what you were given naturally'. (However, that hasn't since detered me from getting my left tragus, right conch, navel and right nipple pierced.) :D So I first raised the issue of wanting to get my nose pierced with them when I was about 13, and of course their first was ... read more

two people passed out from one piercing.

I had wanted to get my nose pierced for about two years, when my parents finally agreed. I never really thought that I would actually go through with it, but then one day my best friend texted me and said she had suddenly decided she wanted it too, and her mom said she would take her. I was so excited to have her come with me, and we decided to go that Saturday. My parents were so nervous and spent hours googling the dangers of nose piercings, but I assured them I would take good care of it. Saturday morning ... read more

My first nose piercing.

I was only fifteen when I got this done, and it was my first facial piercing, so I didn't really care what I got. So you shouldn't take this story as an example of what to do when choosing a piercing, but as an example of how stupid and thoughtless I was. Now, onto the story. As I said, I was only fifteen and I was itching for a piercing somewhere other than my ears. So I casually approached the subject with my mom. Now, this went a lot smoother than I had hoped because I discovered my mom has ... read more
