DIY septum done right!

DIY: do-it-yourself. That's not something I live by or enjoy hearing when it comes to piercing. I haven't done a "DIY" piercing on myself since I was 15, so why now? When I hear "DIY" or "self-done piercing" I think of teenagers puncturing their flesh with safety pins that have been "sterilized" by fire or alcohol. I never wanted to be like that, and never wanted to be grouped with that, so it's hard for me to say that my septum is "DIY". It's been about a year and a half since I got my septum pierced for the first ... read more

Big fuss over nothing

Back in September someone turned up in my class at college with their nose pierced. I thought it looked really nice but never really thought about getting it done myself until a month or so later. We were talking about piercings in a lesson and I decided that 2 in each lobe was boring and not enough for me. I decided against navel, as everyone had it, and nobody would see it as I rarely bare my stomach. In the end it was between helix and nose (nostril). I thought I had better ask my parents because although I was ... read more

A 14 year old with a septum piercing!

Ok, so, some background: I've always been into piercings since I was 9, when I first had my ears done. I think what made me all the more eager was the fact that my mum is so against body piercing apart from normal lobes. She doesn't even let me get my ear cartilage pierced. Well, I have but she got so mad when she saw them and made me take them out. She absolutely hates facial piercings and I know if she finds out about this one, I'm grounded for life! Anyway, I have really wanted quite a unique piercing ... read more

12g Septum

So, I had been tossing around the idea of getting my septum redone...pretty much since i'd taken it out. The first time it was placed very high and very far back and was almost pointless so I retired it, it was 16g. I remembered the piercing the first time was basically painless and figured why not, it would feel the same, right? Now my boyfriend was a big fan so he was all excited when I outed my idea of having it redone and he immediately contacted my piercer and told him. Now some time and things happened until I ... read more

Welcome to the family!

Over the years, I have gotten many body mods. The first 'major' one being my tongue at age 14. Since then, I have had my nose twice, eyebrow twice, nipples, labret, 'snakebites', and various cartilage piercings. Yet, for some reason, I had always wanted a septum. I simply lacked the courage to just go and do it. Many friends of mine have theirs done, so I started asking around about their experiences. Some said it hurt, others said it didn't. Some said it healed quickly, others said it didn't. Eventually I just knew it was going to be my own ... read more

Simple and Easy Septum Piercing

My Simple and Easy Septum Piercing The day after Thanksgiving I decided to get my septum pierced on a whim. I hadn't been considering getting a piercing at all beforehand. In fact I went through a high school phase of piercing myself (navel, nostril, ears,), but quickly grew out of that and haven't worn any body piercings since. I recently ended a very unhappy relationship, and then ended up having that person stalk me for six months, so now I'm taking the time to do things just for me without being concerned about what other people might think. So I ... read more

Seriously Simple Septum!!!

I guess I share the same feelings on the septum piercing as nearly everyone else whos story Ive read.... at first I was repulsed by it. But somehow my opinion drastically changed -and I honestly cant identify the point in time or person it was on that I decided... '' hey that looks pretty rad! '' haha! But I got a hankerin' for some new holes it my face and a dainty, little, tight to the nose 14g septum piercing seemed to be the answer. Already having my nostril, monroe, and nipples pierced and my ears gauged to 7/16 I ... read more

My septum experience

I first developed an interest in body modification about a year ago and started off with getting one of my lobes pierced. Since then my passion for modifying my body has escaladed until a point where I see my modifications as a part of me, and not just an addition. Since getting my lobe pierced a year ago I have had a number of others including several more 'basic' piercings such as lobes(stretched), cartilage and a tongue piercing, to more unusual and less common piercings like a tongue web, double inverse navel and a prince albert. As with a lot ... read more

My first real piercing

As an 18 year old from a fairly conservative family, I never thought that I would pierce anything beyond my ears. Of course, this all changed when I discovered BME. Going through all of the articles and pictures, nostril piercings caught my eye the most. It was classy, feminine, and subtle. Its significance in Hinduism also held some appeal. I was wary of how it would look on me though because I've always thought that I had a big nose. However, after perusing through different pictures, I saw lots of girls with noses like mine and they looked great. Now ... read more

my awesome septum

A few months ago I decided to finally get going on my plans for my long thought about septum piercing. I had wanted one for about a year and I was in love with how they looked. I had recently moved from a very small town to Portland but I was attached to the piercing shop down in my hometown. I had already gotten pierced there once, so I knew that piercer (sort of). So one weekend I ventured down there and asked the piercer to make an appointment to get my septum done. She took one long look at ... read more
