Very First Piercing; Man That Was Fun

So, as the title states, I just got my very first piercing. Well, aside from the four ear ones I have. I got them at age 1 for first hole & 10 for the second. I have always wanted to get a number of facial piercings but I was always too scared to. But a week ago my ex-boyfriend from a year ago said I should get my septum done. I was kind of into the idea, kind of now. I'm a total baby when it comes to pain. I'm very, VERY scared of needles. I can't stand them. But, ... read more

The Birth of a Nose Ring, and the Addition of a Septum

Last March, I got my first needle piercing. My left nostril was decorated with a titanium ring, and I walked on air for the next week. I was beautiful. I had self respect, I took care of myself for the first time in a long time. I ate right, I exercised, I did all those things that one is supposed to do all the time, but which I had never done. Suddenly, I was worth looking after. And all it took was a simple piece of jewellery. More piercings followed, and after each one I was granted a surge of ... read more

Crooked septum experience

I've wanted my septum pierced since I turned thirteen years old. I was pretty obsessed with having it done at that time and spent the next year hassling my mom to let me. I showed her all sorts of piercing information on the internet and even went to see a nurse to set mom's mind at ease about the possibility of medical complications (which the nurse assured us were pretty unlikely). Finally my mom was convinced, so when I was 14, we went to a shop called Bee Cool in Calgary AB to see if I could have it done. ... read more

Septum Piercing Through The Cartilage

Well ever since I was younger I've been obsessed with piercings and tattoos but seeing as I had extremely strict parents I couldn't really get any facial piercings. When I started looking at piercings that you can actually hide that's when I fell in love. The septum, id only seen a few people with this modification and all of them men. I started looking up as much information as I could on every piercing website I could find. This was the one and my heart was solely set on it. After ogling at hundreds of girls with the beautiful piece ... read more


Like many people that have written experiences for BME, I initially didn't like the "look" of septum piercings. However, again like many others, my outlook on them has changed. What tilted the scales for me personally was seeing an "older" gentleman (mid 50's perhaps?) that had a 6g CBB in his septum. It was a well-crafted piece; so much so that I initially mistook it for a "fake" piece. However, when I asked him about it, he assured me that it was in fact genuine (even going to far as to remove it in front of me). He was happy ... read more


Well, for the longest time I've wanted my septum, but bringing it up in grade 8 didn't go too well with my dad. So I kinda waited a bit and then grade 10 came around and I asked again. He obviously said no. And again, and again. That didn't stop me. I asked him so many times, and explained things to him until he finally agreed. At first he said my mom had to take me, which blows, because my mom doesn't exactly have a means of transportation, which obviously meant bussing. I wasssssssssn't too into that, and neither was ... read more

A septum fairy tale.

It was my 16th Birthday. I already had my lip pierced (by my friend Ashleigh) and I've almost always known I wanted to get heavily into body modification. My parents were ridiculously against it and every little thing I tried to do to convince them otherwise was in vain. I really actually felt unnatural in my own body, every time I looked in the mirror I would see someone not me, as if I was missing something; missing a lot of things actually. I knew that I needed piercings (more than just my lame old lip) to make myself feel ... read more

Parents finally say yes to Septum piercing

Okay, so I guess it's about time I get the chance to share my happiness with others about getting my Septum pierced :). Well first of all, let me tell you it took me a while to get my parents used to the idea of me getting it pierced. They kept saying over and over "No, you'll look like a fucking bull! And you can't hide it! Can you?" haha, stupid close minded parents, not knowing anything about piercings. Even though yes, I kind of look like a bull now (oh well that's fine by me, I love the look ... read more

no pain no game? haha

So now I'm known as the local bull because of this lovely piece of jewlery I have sticking through the middle of my nose. I've wanted an original and odd piercing that everyone would know about ever since I was 10. Of course when I saw people with a septum piercing at that age I would think it was...unusual. I'd like it on some people more so than others. After a few years I did want to get my lip done, but I didn't think it would look that amazing on me. Then I was looking at a picture of ... read more

No Fret Nose Piercing

I've always been interested in body modifications of any sort, specifically septum piercings. However, being fifteen, my parents would only be convinced of a "cute" nostril piercing. So I went with it. So on December 22nd (I actually got it done two months ago but that wasn't an option on the submission page) me and the family all went to Thayer Street for a Christmas lunch of Indian food before we all went to my father's house. So after lunch we went to Rockstar piercing and talked to Jay (his last name escapes me at the moment) who first gave ... read more
