Thinking of getting a septum piercing? Not sure about the process? Watch as Frank gets his septum pierced by James at American Skin Art, here in Buffalo NY!
First things first, the area around the septum in cleaned. James then makes a mark where the piercing will go. A pair of open ended clamps is used to hold Frank’s nose steady for the piercing. A deep breath in helps Frank to relax, and James then pushes the needle through, using the open ends of the clamps to guide it. A cork is secured to the end of the needle as James slides it the rest of the way out, so that a septum retainer can be inserted behind it.
Healing Time: 4-8 weeks
Initial jewelry: Circular barbell or a septum retainer
