Septum piercing is one of the least painful body piercings but one need to take proper care to avoid any kind of infection. Septum piercing is quite common as compared to the nose piercing. Septum piercing is found as the traditional rituals in many tribes especially in Native American Asian and African ones. Many classical dancers in India have their septum pierced. The nasal septum is the wall made of cartilage which exists between the nostrils. There is a small space between the cartilage existing at the bottom of the nose (also called “Sweet spot”), that gets pierced not the cartilage itself. The types of jewelries which could be worn in the nasal septum piercing may vary. One can wear circular bar bells, captive bead rings, pinchers or circular bar with a screwing bead or plugs. Wearing plugs are helpful in making the healing fast and it does not stretch the nose downwards so piercing does not get damaged. The instrument used for septum piercing is standard needle and sometimes septum clamp could be used. Some piercing shops do use the scalpel to make the piercing enlarged to wear larger jewelry. The healing time needed for the septum piercing is about 1-32 weeks.
