Thanks, Mars! Although my septum itself is pretty hot... took first runner-up in the Miss Western Septum pageant.

Speaking of beautiful septums, I spend a lot of time staring at photos of septum piercings and wondering how big people's sweet spots are, how far forward their piercing is, worrying that mine's all wrong and my rings will never hang prettily...

Man, just when you thought you'd run out of body parts to fret over. "Gosh, if I could just have a nostril-dividing cartilage like hers..."

Ha!

I could drive myself crazy worrying about that. My piercing was thankfully perfectly done by a total pro and is straight and healed beautifully. Unfortunately, my nose itself is a bit crooked, and I can easily spend 5 minutes fussing in the mirror because my jewelry doesn't seem to 'hang' right. Ultimately I have to say "feh!" and not worry about it, because the only person who is going to notice that much is me.

True. My septum piercing's slightly crooked, but everything about me is crooked. I'm more worried that... how to explain this... my piercing is so far forward/away from my face that by the time I can put rings in, they won't stack nicely and will be dangling miles from my face. Do other people worry about that?

Until I can stretch my piercing, I'll be staring up stranger's noses and wondering. Does anyone have anecdotes to share?

Etsy is awesome. However, I wandered into a Spencer's (!!!) the other day. I needed to buy a new pair of pants last minute for a wedding so I actually went to a mall. In 2014. So bizarre. After pants shopping I decided I wanted to look at plugs, so I headed to Spencer's. They had BOGO 50% Body Jewelry so I got a couple pairs of tunnels. The guy at the register was really nice and set me up with a punch card, too. Buy 6 pairs get one free! I'll probably never be back, but sweet!

Ugh. I'm trying to see if this one captive ring will fit in my septum but I can't get the balls on my old one off. I guess that's good because I don't have to worry about it falling off like my past 100 did but damn!

Now I'm worried my piercing is too far from my face.

Meh, it's all personal preference. My nostrils slant up and I knew going in that I needed to ask for it to be pierced higher up, because even tiny jewelry looks huge because you can see more of it. I know some people like really large diameters in their septum, not me. I have yet to find any jewelry that I can actually get in my nose but I think is small enough to look good (which is why I just wear a retainer).

I have three rings, and they're always doing one thing or another. They're never just like sitting all perfectly like the VonTrapp family or something. But they always look sexy as hell! Anyhow, you can always just do it, try it out, and if you do't like it, you can go back. I'll also note that it took like three months with these three rings in at the size I am (like ~4g?) for the hole to relax a little, and not be forcing the rings to hang so tight.

When I originally got my septum pierced, I really wanted something like this:
Just spoilered because it's a close-up of someone's nose.
Spoiler: show

But my nose is the wrong shape for that. :( My nostrils don't show anywhere close to my septum.

Noooo, I have become the enemy! I take it all back!

I keep having to say phrases from this thread aloud to myself and slowly try to picture what they mean: "My nostrils slant up," got it. Can't quite nostrils don't show anywhere close to my septum" yet. I've spent so many years studying my own nose anxiously, I forgot to check out anyone else's.

But I had no problem picturing "sitting all perfectly like the VonnTrapp family or something." So cute.

I think I'll be fine with rings clustering a bit instead of stacking, I just don't want to keep throwing money at jewelry that doesn't suit my nose and tastes.

Assuming the balls screw off, if you have some latex or nitrile gloves around they should help you get enough grip to get them undone.

Nothing got it off except for the next day while I was talking to my boss, one of the balls fell onto my clipboard. Awesome!

Ah yes. I had a similar thing happen while in the middle of teaching a class.

My BAF order arrived yesterday, and I stretched my 12g septum up to 10g with no problems. Piece o' cake. Insert victory jig here.

I should write BAF a love letter. Here, I've paid the equivalent of $20-30 for each generic, externally threaded curved barbell. I got a LOT of stuff from BAF for that price.

So... I've been thinking of a nose piercing for over a year and I got it yesterday... in Portland (I don't live in Portland). The piercer was really nice and he said he knew a piercer in my area and gave me their name. It hurt for the first few hours, then I forgot I had it, then I touched it accidentally and it started hurting a little. Anyway, I'm happy with it. I just have to figure out what to do when I want to be a bit more... conservative because it is kind of bright green and I went for the biggest stone they had of the tiny stones. But it is great!

I would say the fact it's a stone at all rather than a ring makes it fairly conservative as-is, I bet it'll be fine :)

Congratulations, linanil! Nice to see some action in this thread again.

I can stretch my septum again in nine days. Color me eager.

Yeah, unless your job is really strict about piercings a nose screw is pretty conservative. But you can always get a plain steel ball, clear glass, or a flesh colored retainer if you really need to.

Yeah, my job is really odd but no one has piercings/visible tattoos. On the other hand, I'm already considered the odd one but who knows, maybe I'll be the start of a no visible piercings rule or something :)

I almost got my nose pierced recently and then backed out on the way to the parlor. I feel like if I'm still on the fence about getting another nose piercing that late in the game, I should probably wait until I'm 100% sure. Besides, I have about 100 ear piercings I already know I want.

Congrats linanil on your new piercing!

Does anyone else get that feeling when they really want a new piercing of it already being there? Like you're missing part of yourself and you can just feel it? That's how I usually feel before I get a new piercing. It doesn't feel like a separate piece, it feels like an extension of myself.
