The Septum piercing is done in the center of the septum, the soft tissue just inside where the two nostrils meet. Healing time for a septum is 3-6 weeks.
Initial Jewelry: Circular barbells, captive bead rings (CBRs) and retainers are all viable initial jewelry options typically starting at 16g. Retainers are preferable among those who need to hide the jewelry for work or schooling purposes, as they can be flipped up during the healing process.
Chakra Healing: Placement in conjunction with the throat chakra and third eye, or brow chakra, septum piercings primarily work on balancing the energies. Pulling together the desire to express, and the unconscious minds truths of motive. Again, deciphering between what should remain as an inner dialogue and what should be shared with those around you
Alternatives: While instinctively, most assume that nostril piercings would be the next alternative to septum’s, Philtrum piercings more closely mimic the aesthetics of a septum piercing in terms of placement.
