My friend had pierced her lip before, and I decided to make her do it, because all the piercing studios near me had a 16 year age limit on all piercing. So, that cold day in November we went to her place with all the stuff we needed, included a proper gauged piercing needle.
We got all this at the drug store. She had made the dot on my septum, and i was so nervous i thought i was dying, i was really shaky and afraid, but when she pushed the needle through it felt so good! I had the piercing needle in for a few seconds, and then she inserted a tiny horseshoe ring made of surgical steel.
My friend was very patient and gave me loads of tips how to take care of my new septum. On the bus home, i was so happy that i finally got my septum done! my parents were a little grumpy but they said it was okay! I took about 4 weeks to heal, and i had no infections whatsoever!
Today, i have a normal “bullring” with one ball. My jewelry is 1.6 mm and around 9 mm in diameter. Im waiting to get a 2 mm septum pincher, because i would like to try septum stretching. I have ordered the septum pincher on a website called crazy factory, but i’m not so “good” at shopping piercing stuff at the internet, i just googled it and that site popped up! I recommend getting a septum piercing!!
