[diy] Septum

Septum Piercing Story Disclaimer: I do not advocate self-piercing. If you have a safety pin and some rubbing alcohol, do not even think about it. Proper tools include an autoclave, sterilized HOLLOW GAUGE needles, iodine, Gentian Violet [to mark], bleach, and clamps [optional]. Well, I have 17 piercings, 6x left lobe, 5x right lobe, 3x labret, 2x nostril, and my septum, which I'm going to tell you about. I had started to think about what type of piercing would suit my face, mainly my nose, after I had my double nostrils done. I figured three labrets... three nostril piercings... a ... read more

A Spontaneous But Worth While Decision

Last week, me and my friend Natalie were talking about tattoos. We've both wanted one for ages, but I wanted wait until I got mine. So we agreed to go book her tattoo once we had found a design she liked (she wanted two angel wings on the back of her neck), but I suddenly felt this urge to have some form of something done to my body. I have a few piercings, all fairly standard, I have a double lobe (the second holes were DIY) piercing on each ear, a cartilage piercing on my top right ear and my ... 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

Tale of a Chicken's Nose Piercing experience

Well, it started out that I was going to Body Language on 24th and Seawall Blvd here in Galveston to watch my niece get a tattoo, something I had done before so I was happy to go along and share the experience with her. Three years ago, I went with her to get her nose piercing and she suggested that we do it at the same time, but she got brave way before I did, and I didn't do it that day. I even asked my doctor for some numbing style cream so I could do the piercing pain free, ... read more

so happy with my nose piercing

So I got my nose done two days after my seventeenth birthday. The only other piercing I have are my ears (two holes in each.) I got a little stud on the left side of my nose. My mom went with me and she drove me up to the shop. On the drive there I was trying to stay cool and I was just jamming out to some music to take my mind off of it. I had heard stories that it is a very painful piercing and that it was excruciating, and I'm kind of a wimp, so I ... read more

my nose piercing

About a year ago I got my nose pierced for a bit of fun and I love it. It was one of the best things I ever got done it looks cool and my boy friend loves if. He thinks it looks sexy and it is one of my favorite piercing and I would recommend getting it to anyone that asked me. I want to get another one on the other side that is how much I love it. It took a while to heal and every time I changed it, it hurt like hell but all the pain that ... read more

Hiding my septum.... Unsuccessfully.

I wanted a piercing for a long time. But, as many of you, my parents were absolutely against any sort of hole anywhere on my body. I had discussed so many different piercing ideas that I wanted with them to no avail. And so.. I decided to take matters into my own hands. I settled on my septum, because I knew it would be really easy to hide. I couldn't go to a studio or a professional, being underage and all, but I have a friend that has a ridiculous amount of piercing experience for a sixteen year old. He ... read more

Septum, finally..

Hi, I'm Andrew. When I first started high school, I started getting into Piercings. Since then (One and a half years ago), I have had my left ear pierced 7 times and stretched to 14mm, my right ear pierced once and stretched to 8mm, my tongue pierced, my lip pierced, and both of my eyebrows pierced. I decided to get another one, and so I chose my septum. I'd arranged to get this done with my friends on many other occasions, not really intending to go through with it and instead getting something different pierced. One day, my friend said ... read more
