1. Do your research
Make sure you find the right piercing studio for you, that the jewellery you have chosen is correct, and that you know exactly what you’re getting into.
2. Manage pain expectations
Be prepared to experience a little bit of discomfort. However, it is important to manage those expectations as you may end up building up the idea in your head too much. It is not going to be as bad as you think.
3. Prepare for Aftercare
Be prepared to spend at least 5 minutes a day, twice a day cleaning your piercing. Trust me, proper piercing aftercare is definitely worth it to avoid infections and irritation.
4. Prepare to be patient
You’re going to have to be patient when you get a piercing. Always wait a little while longer than told before removing your piercing, and be sure to always follow aftercare instructions.
5. Wanna know how I got these scars?
One thing with a septum piercing you don’t need to worry about is visible scars, as the piercing goes through the inside of your nose. So if you like showing off your scars, you’re out of look.
6. Prepare for the comments
Your family and friends are probably going to make comments or judgement about your septum piercing. This is normal because it’s such a unique piercing, and will pass in time. Just remember, you look awesome.
7. Be aware of your job and school
Make sure you are actually allowed to wear a septum piercing where you work or in school. It would suck if you went through all the trouble of getting the procedure, only to be told by your boss to take it out. Ask the question first.
