Hiding and Unhiding Septum Piercing

Video From Youtube

You may consider a septum piercing, which you can hide during the healing period and after. Leaving your jewelry out of your septum piercing can cause the piercing to shrink or completely close, but there are several different types of jewelry for septum piercings and some are suitable for wearing inside your nostrils to help conceal your septum piercing.
  1. Ask your piercer to pierce your septum with a retainer or circular barbell. Septum retainers are surgical steel and have the color of silver. The retainer is shaped similar to a staple, with the horizontal end inside the septum piercing channel and the two sides of the jewelry hang down in front of the nostrils. A circular barbell is U-shaped, with a bead on each end. The piercer will open the space in between the sides of the jewelry to fit inside your nostrils.
  2. Wash your hands with soap and water. Avoid touching any surface or skin to prevent transferring dirt or bacteria to your septum jewelry and piercing. Dry your hands with a paper towel and dispose of the towel in the trash. If you are wearing a circular barbell, tighten the beads on the ends by turning the beads to the right.
  3. Open your mouth as wide as possible. Curl your upper lip over your top row of teeth. Making these motions with mouth will cause your septum to stretch and become thinner in the center of your nostrils. Push the visible ends of your septum piercing jewelry up and into your nostrils. Relax your face and observe that no part of the septum jewelry is visible.
