Septum Rings




Septum piercing goes through the septum that divides the right nostril from the left. It is also called a bull nose piercing or a horseshoe piercing.

The nasal septum is made of cartilage tissue. Your piercer will not actually pierce the cartilage here. Rather, the gap that is in line with a regular nostril piercing is the one that is marked for piercing. This part is called the sweet spot. Remember when you wear a septum ring, the piercing should not be stretched too much because it can change the shape of your nose, obviously making it droop… ­čÖü

While some people prefer to get piercings that can take thinner gauge septum rings, others prefer to stretch the piercing to wear heavier gauge septum rings. Septum piercings normally take up to twelve weeks to heal provided the aftercare instructions are followed strictly.

The most popular jewelry worn on septum piercings are the captive bead rings and the circular barbells. Some people wear staple-shaped septum retainer when they want to hide the piercing. These come in different sizes. Those who have a larger piercing use septum keepers or bullet plugs.

Captive bead septum rings, captive ball rings or ball closure rings feature a bead that is held in place by the metal rings pressure. This is the kind of septum rings most people opt for. The captive bead ring can be easily opened. The better quality septum ring is a snug fit in the piercing. There is no chance of getting the skin caught in it.

Septum rings also include septum keepers or retainers that help keep the septum piercing intact and invisible. These come in two types – staple shaped and plugs.

Barbells are versatile body jewelry that are also used as septum rings. Barbells can be straight, curved, banana shaped or ring shaped. One or both ends of the barbell can be threaded to take a bead. Circular barbells are called horseshoe barbells because of their shape. These can be of various materials, colors, designs, sizes and patterns with dangles of different themes. When you browse you will come across an amazing range of septum rings to choose from so that you can wear different rings for different occasions!

Bull nose rings are rings that you wear on your nostrils or your septum. If you go for a septum piercing, the best choice is a captive bead ring or a horseshoe ring. “Septum” is the wall between your nostrils.

For a plain nostril piercing, however, it can be tough to get the captive bead ring in since the inside of the nostril is rather deep. The best option, therefore for a bull nose ring for nostril piercing is the hoop nose ring that look like the full bull nose ring when you wear it, yet is easy to insert.

A septum piercing looks very unique and attractive for a bull nose ring. There are millions of people going in for this type of body piercing. The actual piercing is not done through the cartilage and when you get it done by an expert, you will hardly feel any pain!

The most exciting thing about a septum piercing is you can wear your bull nose ring when you want to. In case you cannot wear it to work, you can simple insert a piercing retainer to keep the piercing intact. There is a choice of captive rings with beads, circular barbells and beautiful nose hoops that are the favorite. The captive rings come in 12 and 14 gauge thickness in glow-in-the-dark pretty colors ranging from dark blue, orange, red, purple, light green, blue, pink and lots more, all embellished with beads of clear marble, beach balls, glitter balls and disco balls that look magical.

There are 14 gauge surgical grade steel captive rings with 4 mm acrylic balls in different colors. For special occasions, you may want to add the 14-carat yellow gold horseshoe bull nose ring to your collection. Horseshoe bull nose rings come with circular balls, dice, dangling skeleton hands, swords, and the like. Nose hoops of 18-20-gauge stainless steel and anodized titanium are available in different colors.

Septum piercing




 

So why  mention pain first when talking about septum piercing?

Septum Piercings are rumoured to be very painful. Read, for example, this septum piercing story and you’ll see that the very moment when the needle goes through the wall between your nostrils can be fairly painful indeed. But this is only true for a minority. In the majority of cases, the piercing is a simlpe pinch.

However painful, it doesn’t prevent thousands of people all around the world getting septum piercings and even stretching them to very large gauges!

And it definitely didn’t hold back the ancient warrior tribes from piercing their nose cartilages!

New Guinea, Solomon Island and Australian Aborigines performed septum piercings on young boys as a part of marking their transition into a manhood. Native Americans also wore septum jewelry. A tribe known for this type of a nose piercing was Shawnee and even their leader Tecumseh was depicted wearing a nose ring through his nose cartilage.

And Panama’s Kuna nation wears septum rings to this date, so as we can see this type of nose piercing has been popular in the past and will be popular in future thanks to the widespread body modification followers all around the world.

Another rumour about the Septum Piercing is that the piercing goes through cartilage.

When the septum piercing is performed (traditionally not smaller than 14ga), the very nose cartilage isn’t actually pierced! The needle goes right under the septum and passes above the base of the nose.

Yes, due to the location of the piercing hole, it is not always possible to get the septum piercing right – usually it will be a bit crooked on one side. However, in hands of a skillful piercer you’ll definitely get it sorted the best way possible.

And by the way, the beauty of a septum piercing is that it’s one of a few facial piercings that is invisible to the others, in case if you don’t want to. Just put a piercing retainer in the septum piercing, and no-one will ever tell that you have your septum pierced!
