This nose piercing story was sent in by Ayjay Villasin from Chicago.
Hi c; My Name is Ayjay and I’ve had a 16g septum piercing for almost 5 weeks. Besides my ears, this is the first piercing I’ve ever got.
I never liked typical piercings. Lip piercings like snake bites, Monroe… Eyebrow piercings, industrial bar, cartilage. I loved how septum looked – idk what it was but it caught my attention more than other piercings have! It wasn’t too much and it wasn’t too conservative. It was also a BONUS that you could hide it 🙂 I love all septums but on me I prefer a teeny tiny little one that just shows 2 little balls c:
I was hiding it at first from my mom but I came home several times forgetting to flip it up! She doesn’t really care. I’m 16 at the moment and I got pierced at my best friend’s house…
I know that everyone hates people that pierce themselves but trust me; I studied my ASS off for this. I didn’t wanna get an infection; I wanted to make sure everything was right 😉 I’ve wanted a septum for about 2 years. I finally decided I wanted to actually get it in the beginning of sophomore year. I got it done in June! It took a long time for it to actually happen. I read about septums and self-piercing for almost a whole school year. I read and looked up as much as I could.
