Never pierce yourself. Let the professionals handle it. (Septum)

My first experience with a septum piercing was about 2 ½ years ago, and also self done. I had seen pictures of it online before and I loved the way it looked. Unfortunately, I had a mother who wouldn't allow any piercing besides my ears, with the exception of a Monroe (Which is a different horror story all in its own- though that was the fault of a horrible professional, I did not do it myself) that she only let me get out of spite for my father. And my dad? He practically disowned me just for the Monroe alone, ... read more

DIY septum piercing.

Alright. So I'm currently seventeen. I've had an interest in piercings and tattoos for as long as I can remember. Right now I've got six piercings. I have my septum of course, and three 14 gauge rings on my cartilage. I've also got my ear lobes pierced. They were one gauged to 5/8, which I hope to have once again, only larger than before. Now for my adventure in DIY septum piercing. It wasn't until after my seventeenth birthday that I decided I'd give myself my own present. I wasn't old enough to get a piercing professionally, and my mother ... read more

My Spiffing Septum

I've grown up around people with body modifications, so it makes sense for me to be into them really. Both of my parents and my Grandfather on my Mum's side are heavily tattooed. In fact, one of my earliest memories is my Grandad drawing on my arm with felt-tip pens because I wanted to look like him. I was amazed that anyone could have these wonderful pictures on their skin forever. My Mum and Dad were both into piercings, and while my Mum only had her eyebrow and nose pierced, my Dad was quite heavily modded. I can't remember exactly ... read more

My Septum=My Favorite Piercing

It was a cold and wintry day when I decided that I wanted to get my septum pierced. The snow was falling hard the day before, the roads were slick with ice, and I briefly thought about not going because of the condition of the roads but decided to do it anyway. I realized that if I did not do it then, I would never do it. I had been doing research on septum piercings for a while, and decided it was time. I knew what I was getting myself into, the risks, and everything else I would need to ... read more

My long-awaited nostril piercing

Ever since I was little I wanted a nostril piercing. That tiny bit of jewelry resting on the nose was always the epitome of beauty to me. When I turned 16 I begged my mother to let me get it pierced. She gave me a long-winded speech about how I was too young to make a commitment on that level and said she'd be more than willing to take me to a piercer when I was 18 if I still wanted it. I reluctantly agreed to her offer and spent the next 2 years waiting patiently for it. The morning ... read more

My first body piercing!

I've never had a body piercing. I come from a conservative family, and don't have any outrageous friends to tell me about these things. But I've always loved them. Something always intrigued me. But yeah, I'm like everyone else. I used to hate septums. I thought they were ridiculous. But then as usual, something changed my mind. I watched Mel Gibson's Apocalypto (don't laugh). And I have Mayan blood (my mom is from Guatemala), and I thought that would be the perfect way to show my heritage. I had to give it TONS of thought. I decided to go through ... read more

My exciting septum

So yeah, I think it was pretty exciting... In November of last year, I decided it was time I had the septum piercing I'd been going on about for a while, and I started thinking about where I could go and have it done. I'd gone to a couple of other piercing places to ask about it before, but the first place had no resident piercer at that time and it was just the tattooist doing the piercings, so I thought I would wait and try and find a place that had a dedicated piercing artist. I kind of forgot ... read more

My cute little nose!

Well, I've been wanting to get something done for a long time. I was too lazy to get my sparrows drafted so I started talking about getting my nose pierced to a few of my friends. I bailed out a few times, but I finally had to put my foot down, if I said I was going to do it, by god I was going do it! Not to mention I had also just turned 18 this year! So I knew that was something I still had to do and cross off the "I just turned of age" list. I ... read more

makeshift coming of age by hollow needle

Here is my septum piercing and coming of age story of the year I turned 18 years of age. I'd been reading a lot about coming of age rituals as my 18th birthday approached. I was interested in a septum piercings because of the significance of the piercing in some tribes having to do with separation from the mother and the blood from the piercing being symbolic of that (You can actually read a bit about this in the encyclopedia section of BME). My mother and I were in good standings and all but she had expressed me to me ... read more

The girl with sinus problem gets her septum pierced

I have always love piercings, but when I got my first piercing when I was 19 and I have been truly in love with them since. They are truly a part of me...... The only regret I have that is waiting so long to get them. I have been debating to get my septum piercing for six months. I have been debating if I wanted to get my septum or my Monroe. After much research on BMEzine and other sites, I decided that I wanted to get my septum. Septum piercing just seem more beautiful and plus I could hid ... read more
