my diy septum

Ok. So if you've read this, and seen I'm 14, and are shocked, don't be. I'm a lot more mature than most 14 years old and have wanted this piercing for two years! So don't judge me. Well, it started out today when I met a friend for some lunch. I had mentioned to her that I needed some more needles because I had none left after piercing some friend's cartilage. So, as a surprise, she got me some.They were cannular, not what I'm used to, but I figured it'd be nice to learn how to use them and get ... read more

My 10 gage septum

I'm 20 years old and I've had my septum pierced for 2 years now. Since then I have had multiple piercings, but you never really forget your first piercing experience. I'm usually a spur of the moment person but, oddly enough, I put a lot of thought in to what body modifications I want. I got my septum pierced the day I turned 18 years old. I was your average teenage idiot and wanted to get something that I could hide from my parents and work. My mom said if I was to live in her house I wasn't aloud ... read more

The tale of my nose piercing

Before I got my nose pierced, my only experience with body mods was getting my ears pierced when I was three. Needless to say, I did not remember much about that experience so I was a bit nervous about the whole thing. At the time I was only 17, and it took a bit of convincing for my parents to let me do it. I basically mentioned that this would be my only body mod, or else if they didn't let me do it I might go crazy when I turned 18 and get a tattoo on my face, so ... read more

It not your god, It everybody God.

All girls love to come back to school with a whole new look that will shock and surprise everyone and I am no exception. I was sixteen, about to go into the eleventh grade and only had my tongue pierced. My first experience with a septum piercing was browsing the internet when I came across a picture of this heavily modified guy who had a septum piercing. I thought," Oh wow. That's so ugly it's cute. I want it!" I knew people were going to be appalled by my choice and I really wrestled over it. My friends are piercing-less ... read more

These gloves feel like condoms!

Hello readers, I suppose you are all here to read about my experince getting my septum, well kiddies. Here it is. I had already had my septum done three times before this one, and all three had came out crooked or placed wrong. So Angie and Tadd told me to go with them to Nomads in SF. So I made plans to meet there at the studio, while I was waiting for them to get there I walked up and down height street with my dad and friend Veronika. I was a little nerveous to get my septum done again, ... read more

A whim completed my face.

Like most stories involving this increasingly common piercing, my thoughts on the septum piercing were originally negative ones. I never saw much appeal to looking like a bull. However, though, when Christmas rolled around, and I had money to spare, I was going in to get the other side of my snakebites done, and the piercing held a new appeal for me. This was before I had found BME, and I didn't know much about the piercing at the time. I'd seen a few pictures, but that was all. The piercing was done almost entirely on a whim - I'd ... read more

The Nose Piercing that I have wanted forever!

I know people always say this but I've been wanting my nose pierced since I was 14. I'm not sure why. I think I was influenced by taste in music and was generally fascinated by piercings. I went to a school that was pretty strict with this sort of thing but by the time I got to 15 I desperately wanted it done. I think we drove to the piercers about 5 times in the space of two years which resulted in me getting overwhelmingly nervous and chickening out. I was a completely different person back then. When I finally ... read more

Always Hidden, Almost Pointless

I'll go ahead and start this like the cliché 'girl gets septum pierced' story: I never thought I'd want my septum pierced. Out of all the possible piercings it was, in fact, the least likely thing for me to do. I'd seen many different pictures and seen them live and it simply wasn't something that appealed to me. I had a very good friend on IAM who had her septum pierced. She frequently talked about it – stretching it up or different jewelry she tried in it – but I never really gave it much thought. When I first met ... read more

Welcome to my face, septum piercing.

It's difficult to understand the significance of this piercing without a bit of background. When I first discovered piercings that were not just limited to the ears, I was more or less instantly repulsed by any nose piercings. No idea why, because I thought they looked great on the right face. Fast forward five or so years, and I notice that my taste is morphing slightly. I got a nipple piercing, followed swiftly by a genital piercing. And it was about the time of the latter when I discovered that I felt my face was missing something. For me, a ... read more

The Little Bull

My septum was my first professional modification beyond the gunning of my ears and I wouldn't have had it any other way. At first glance, I found the piercing to be horribly unattractive and I wondered why anybody would've wanted to, well, look like a bull, basically. Apparently this is a common first reaction, because after lurking BME/Modblog for a year, the septum piercing definitely began to grow on me. I was seventeen at the time of this revelation, so to speak, and I realized that this was the piecing I wanted the most. As my mother is rather conservative, ... read more
