No longer just the favourite of 2005 scene kids and hardcore metal-heads, the septum ring has become increasingly popular in the last few months, with Lady Gaga, Zoë Kravitz and Rihanna seen sporting them recently.
Reviews are mixed, the healing process is around 10-12 weeks which is a long time if you’re unsure or want a prettier,more decorative ring straight off. The main thing that has put me off getting one done for real is that I work with the public all day every day and I don’t want a fresh, healing piercing on my face whilst at work. Especially with the air-con/heating drying my skin out!
So I got for alternatives. Personally I prefer the more plain looking rings on myself. The one I use costs just £3.50 in Claires and everyone is always asking me if it hurt and where I got it pierced whilst I’m at work, so I’m thinking that no one can really tell the difference. Sure if they had a good old stare up my nostrils they might notice, but it’s not gonna happen.
I also never had to worry about it being pierced in the wrong place as I can shove it in whatever position that I want it.
Decorative ones cost a little more;
But if you’re looking to re-create your favourite celeb’s look without the pain then this is a pretty good option!
