Thats does fit, I'll try another size! Story about my septum

thinking about getting a new piercing for about 2 months (as the entertainment value of my other piercings - labret, eyebrow and tongue had pretty much faded). Id seen the septum piercing many times before and kind of viewed it as a 'Hardcore piercing' but I liked the look of it non-theless. Also I liked its practicality due it being possible to 'hide it' with a retainer. Another good point about the septum is the fact that it is easily stretched which is something that appealed to me. My friend mentioned he was going to see 'Mr Van Dyke' at ... read more

My Parents are not very Observant

lly got my tongue pierced. I've been wanting it for about 2 years after seeing my friend get hers done. I've always wanted piercing, I tried to pierce my eyebrow about 4 years ago after seeing Daniel John from Silverchair had his done. I was probably about 16 then, this really did not work. About a year later I pierced my nose, accidentally really, I had a sharp earing and I just slowly pushed it through while talking on the phone. I kept it for about 4 days, then I got annoyed with it, the inside tickled my nose, my ... read more

30 minutes

g my septum pierced has been on my mind for quite some time. I had my nose pierced once before, last time was my left nostril. It was the text book example of how NOT to get a piercing done. I was 18, in my college dorm, I had my face pushed in to a pink satin pillow & I had a cork shoved up my nose. My friend was SLOWLY shoving a safety pin needle into my nose (sterilized by a lighter flame). It was EXTREMLY painful. Afterwards I had a silver earring hoop in my nose. Not surprisingly ... read more

spanakopita and oxyzene

ny years I had considered the ramifications of having my septum pierced. I suppose the expectation of a great deal of pain had kept me away from doing it for so long. Additionally, a piercer once told me long ago that he knew of somebody whose septum remained painfully sensitive until the very day that he removed it years later. For this reason he refused to pierce them (this was at a time when piercing was in its relative infancy and many professionals didn't have the level of experience that they do now). After thinking about it with more frequency ... read more

I'm modded...I swear

little background~ I have a 14g navel, 14g tongue, 12g nipples and vert hood~all easily hidden. I also have 12g stretched lobes which isn't that much of a mod. I hate looking un-modded. So, I decided I wanted to get my septum pierced. I had seen my b/f get his done and nearly passed out as I watched him bleed. Jenny (she does all our piercings) at the time said he had really thick cartilage so it bleed and was a lot more painful than it is for most people. He only had it for about a month before he ... read more

I didn't even feel it! (Septum)

y, all of my other piercings were settling in. My nostril piercing (ever my constant bane) seemed to have decided to cooperate, the nipple was, for all intents and purposes, healed, and recovered from the jewelry change (switched to a straight barbell from a circular one), and only the piercings in my left ear (4 of them) were still in what I'd call the "actively healing" phase. Even those were calm and quite low maintenance, and so with my newest baby (vertical hood piercing) only a week old, I decided to go ahead with my plans for my tenth piercing; ... read more

And it only cost $207

9; I had my nose pierced a year and a half ago, but after having it pierced for seven months I had to take it out for a sports competition. By the time I was able to put the ring back in, the hole had healed enough that the ring wouldn't fit back in the piercing. I left it out and didn't think about getting it pierced again until around the time school started this year. I missed the piercing in my nose and went back to the studio where I normally get my piercings done. The girl who had ... read more

my first septum

wanted a piercing for a few years, I'd been deciding what I wanted. I knew that I wanted to get either my eyebrow, lip or septum pierced, but because of work, I never really made a serious thought as to actually going through with it and getting it done. None of my jobs have ever allowed visable piercings. I'd gotten tattoos in the past which are hidable and I love them. So my train of thought was if I can handle a tatty, I can handle a piercing. It would be my first piercing other than the 12 on my ... read more

I've got a giant booger up my nose!

so I got my vertical hood piercing about a month ago now, and not long afterwards decided I wanted another piercing. I knew pretty much straight away what I was going to have - I've had an interest in septum piercings for a few years now, but never had the courage to go through with it. My hood was healing beautifully, and seemed settled so I decided to get on with the septum piercing and booked my appointment for a Saturday afternoon. The receptionist at the studio said I didn't need an appointment but I asked him to pencil me ... read more

Septum Synopsis

ound: I'm a 26-year-old technical consultant living in Austin, Texas (the greatest place to live in the world – no kidding). My piercing history is relatively brief – I used to have my lobes (2 on each) and my right nostril (done with a gun, ouch); but now I proudly sport a 4 gauge titanium barbell through my tongue and my latest addition – a 12 gauge black niobium retainer through my septum. I have been contemplating this piercing for almost 3 months now. I have always thought that septum piercing was 'extreme' and never seriously considered having one, especially ... read more
