How does a Septum piercing work? The septum piercing goes through the nasal septum, it is the skin between the nostrils. A reputable piercer will find the “sweet spot” below your nose’s cartilage and pierce right through it! This makes for a quick, smooth and gorgeous new piercing.

This is going to create an amazing experience without an overwhelming amount of pain. It is always good to be informed when being pierced! This means that you will want to research your piercer. As this how many Septum’s they have pierced. Do they have photos of the piercings they have performed? Do they have a sanitary piercing station and jewelry that meets the APP members satisfaction? These are all questions you want to ask when shopping for the perfect piercer. No-one wants to get left with a low-quality jewelry that irritates or gets stuck in a fresh piercing. Plus, you want a piercer who can hit the sweet spot with confidence! These piercings may be easier to do, but they are easier to mess up. Especially if the placement is too far back, or crooked.
After being pierced the Association of Professional Piercers recommends that you keep the area clean using a sterile Saline solution. Spraying the solution on the piercing twice a day will keep the piercing clean. It is important that there is not a lot of movement during the healing time.

If you need to flip the horseshoe up or adjust the piercing so it looks straight, you can!
