How to Pierce Your Septum

Video From Youtube
  1. Get pierced during the right season. If you're prone to colds in the winter, wait until winter is over to get your piercing. If you're prone to allergies, wait until the allergy season is over. Sneezing can irritate or dislodge a new piercing.
  2. Locate a piercer you're comfortable with. Because the septum piercing is so common, any reputable piercing studio can do it well.
  3. Discuss your jewelry needs with the piercer. Circular barbells and captive bead rings are two common pieces of jewelry for a septum piercing. However, if you need to be able to hide your piercing, consider a septum retainer for your first piece of jewelry.
  4. Allow the piercer to clean the inside of your nose and feel your septum for the correct placement of the jewelry. She may next put clamps in place, or she may do the piercing without clamps.
  5. Take a deep breath as your piercer prepares to move the needle through your septum. Let it out as slowly as you can as you get pierced.
  6. Ensure that the jewelry hangs straight as your piercing heals, adjusting it slightly if you notice it becoming crooked. Use salt water soaks to help speed the healing process.
