Something frivolous and fun that is purely about self-expression, piercings can be a great (and reversible) way to change up your look and add an extra twist to your jewelry collection.

In this case, we are talking about nose piercings.

Septum piercings are the 2023 way to work on a nose piercing.

Let's forget the old school steel hoops that look more grunge.

The key is to investigate.

Here we help you with a guide so you know everything.

What is a septum piercing?

Unlike the more traditional nose piercing that sits on the side of the nostril, a septum piercing is definitely a bolder look.

"A septum piercing is located at the bottom of the nose and pierces through a thin patch of skin sometimes referred to as the 'sweet spot', between the nostrils," explains jeweler Laura Bond.

It is usually pierced with a horseshoe-shaped hoop or ring.

What should you know before getting a septum piercing?

It is always good to do your research and seek advice before launching into piercing.

"Always choose a reputable piercer," recommends Bond.

'Your piercer should take the time to talk to you about the piercing and what to expect, as well as the type of jewelry you want to wear when it's healed.

Like any piercing, you have to take care of it, especially while it heals, and be careful not to hit it when putting on or removing make-up.'

The less practical and more encouraging advice is also welcome.

"Septum piercings look amazing on everyone!" says Sacred Gold piercer Gemma Thomson.

'It's a piercing with which you can explore many different options.

How painful is a septum piercing?

All piercings are painful.

But fortunately, septal perforations rank on the lower end of the pain scale.

"They're some of the least painful piercings in the body," says Thomson.

Usually a single tear will be shed;

this is not due to any pain, just a normal reaction to any nostril piercing.

How long does it take for a septum piercing to heal?

“Healing times can vary greatly from person to person depending on a variety of factors, including stress levels, natural immunity, lifestyle choices, and of course, aftercare routine.

On average, for most people, a septum piercing should take 4-6 months to heal completely.”

Jewelry can be changed after the initial swelling and discomfort has subsided, but we recommend consulting before doing so.

Changing your jewelry too quickly can cause irritation and prolong the healing process.'

What aftercare is needed for a septum piercing?

As with any piercing, aftercare is key.

It can be boring, but avoiding unwanted infections is more fun than having to remove your piercing completely.

"For most piercings, we recommend a sterile saline solution and a sterile non-woven pad, which is used to gently wipe away any buildup," Thomson advises.

"Clean the jewelry lightly without rotating the ring, usually once or twice a day until the piercing has fully healed."

What should you not do after getting a septum piercing?

Avoid swimming in a pool during the initial healing stage if possible to minimize any risk of infection.

'The most important thing is not to touch or play with your new piercing, this can irritate the piercing site and delay your healing process.

Wash your hands before cleaning the piercing site and use a paper towel to dry.
