A septum piercing is a type of nose piercing that passes through the soft tissue that separates the nostrils, called the septum. It is typically located near the bottom of the septum, just above the cartilage that separates the nostrils. Septum piercings can be done with a needle or a piercing gun, and can accommodate a variety of jewellery types, such as captive bead rings, circular barbells, and horseshoe-shaped barbells.
The healing process for a septum piercing can vary from person to person. On average, it takes around two to three months for the piercing to heal completely. However, it is crucial to follow proper aftercare procedures and avoid changing the jewellery before it has fully healed.
Septum piercings can cause discomfort and pain during the piercing process, but the level of pain experienced can vary from person to person. Some people report feeling a sharp pain, while others describe it as a dull ache. However, many people find that the pain is short-lived and subsides quickly after the piercing is done.
Mix a solution of 1/4 teaspoon of non-iodized sea salt and 8 ounces of warm water in a clean cup or bowl.
Dip a clean cotton ball or gauze pad into the salt solution and gently clean around the piercing, making sure to remove any crust or debris.
Rinse the piercing with warm water to remove any salt residue.
Dry the area with a clean paper towel or let it air dry.
Do not touch the piercing or rotate the jewellery.
Repeat this process twice a day or as recommended by your piercer.
It's important to avoid using harsh chemicals or alcohol-based products on your piercing as they can irritate and delay the healing process. If you experience any redness, swelling, or discharge, contact your piercer or a healthcare professional for advice.
It is generally recommended to wait for 3-4 months before changing a nose piercing for the first time. During this time, the piercing is still healing and changing the jewellery too soon can cause irritation, inflammation, and delay the healing process.

A septum clicker is a specific type of jewellery designed for septum piercings. It is a hinged ring that "clicks" into place and stays securely in the septum. The clicker has a straight bar that goes through the septum and rests on the underside of the nose. The ring portion of the jewellery sits on the front of the septum and can have various decorative elements or gems.
Segment rings, also known as seamless rings, are a type of jewellery that can be worn in a septum piercing. They have a small segment that is removable, which allows the jewellery to be opened and closed. Any front facing segment ring should be suitable for your septum piercing provided it is the right size.
A circular barbell is a curved bar with two small beads or balls at each end that fit snugly against the inside of the nostrils. They come in various sizes, materials, and designs, making them a versatile option for septum piercings. Circular barbells can be a good choice for those who want a more traditional or simple look for their septum piercing.
A BCR (ball captive ring) is commonly used in a septum piercing. It is simply a ring with two small beads or balls, one on each end of the ring, which are held in place by pressure from the ring. BCRs come in different sizes and materials, and are often used as initial jewellery for septum piercings due to their versatility and ease to put in.

Hold the nose ring between your thumb and forefinger.
Insert the curved part of the nose ring into the piercing hole, with the straight end going through the other side of your nostril.
Use your fingers to gently twist the nose ring until the small ball or ornament is resting inside your nostril.
Adjust the nose ring as necessary to ensure it is straight and comfortable.
Wash the area around your nose piercing with a saline solution or a mild soap and water.
It is important to be gentle when putting in a nose ring, as the piercing site can be sensitive and easily irritated. If you experience any discomfort or resistance while inserting the nose ring, stop and consult with a professional piercer.
