Septum piercing is one of the most popular nose piercings. While the most common of all nose piercings is the nostril piercing, septum has numerous fans and is considered one of the bolder facial piercing choices. Septum piercing is performed on a thin piece of skin inside the nose, just in front of the cartilage that separates the nostrils. The cartilage itself is not pierced so this piercing is much less dramatic than it might look at the first glance. Still, septum piercing looks very bold and effective so this is a great choice for those looking for a more unique facial piercing without going too extreme.
Typical jewelry for a septum piercing includes round jewelry, such as rings. The most popular choice are Captive Bead Rings, though some people choose different ring types, such as fixed bead rings, screwball rings, seamless and segment rings, and more. Another popular choice for a septum piercing is a circular barbell. Both rings and barbells come in many different materials, sizes and decorations so you can make your septum piercing as plain or as attractive as you want. Septum piercings can easily be combined with nostril piercings or other facial piercings for the best effect.
