The septum piercing is definitely having a moment and this didn’t start now, but last year. Rihanna and Lady Gaga were seen sporting such type of piercing, so if you want to get in line with the celebrities, here are 90 designs among which you’ll definitely find one that suits you!

What do you need to know about septum piercings? Well, for starters, no one will actually pierce the cartilage that separates your two nostrils. There is a thin layer of skin between the cartilage and the bottom of your nose. That’s the one that gets pierced and is able to support a jewel.

Will it hurt? Yes, it will pinch a little and you will probably shed a tear or two because of all nerve endings connected to your eyes. However, you’ll be fine after a couple of minutes and completely pain free after 2 or 3 weeks. It will take longer for your new piercing to fully heal. Specialists urge you to care for your piercing for 6 months until the hole is formed and all the tissue becomes intact.

A septum piercing is incredibly versatile. You can make a statement by wearing it or hide it whenever necessary. Since the area that actually gets pierced is not exposed, you will not suffer the trauma of getting scarred. I can’t see any downside to this type of piercing, so let’s take a look at gorgeous chicks wearing one!

Some of the most nonconformist girls choose medium or large sized horseshoe rings that are black. They are counting on the contrast created by such dark color.

As you can see, this girl didn’t clean her upper lip piercing after she did her makeup. This is definitely unhealthy if the piercing is not healed and unaesthetic even if it is healed. Septum piercings have the advantage of getting away less smeared.

31. Diadem gem for punk-rock girl

septum piercing (38)

As I was previously saying, this type of piercing is versatile. You can wear it if you’re style is punk-rock or if you are a classy, elegant woman as well. I’m not saying punk-rock chicks aren’t classy. They are, just in a different way.

40. The Pinterest generation with piercings

If you are a person who spends time online, you surely know that this girl’s style is trendy. If she’s got a nasal septum hole, then its popularity isn’t questionable anymore.

41. Combos that flatter lips

septum piercing (50)

If you’re getting a nose piercing or a lip piercing, you’re automatically attracting attention to those areas. Piercings are a nice trick to emphasize your best features.

42. Redheaded Indian princess

septum piercing (51)

The Indian culture is fascinating. One argument in that regard is that some of its elements ended up as nose jewelry.

49. Horseshoe ring for round faces

septum piercing (58)

The horseshoe ring is a good choice for both oval and round faces. It has the advantage of creating an optical illusion that elongates your face.

50. Infinity rings for oval faces

septum piercing (59)

Infinity rings are recommended for oval faces. As you can see, they don’t have a similar effect to the horseshoe rings. This chick looks awesome with infinity rings on because her face is oval.

51. Atypical look with septum rings

septum piercing (60)

Some makeup and a fitted nose ring may change your look in an instant!

52. Beaded ring for a clean look

septum piercing (61)

A few beads attached to a nose ring are just right. The obtained look is clean and interesting at the same time.

53. Playing with geometrical shapes

septum piercing (62)

Your face, eyes, nose and lips can be narrowed down to geometrical shapes. You can experiment with jewels shaped like geometry figures in order to obtain the most flattering result.

54. Simple and elegant look

septum piercing (63)

A simple and elegant look might be harder to achieve than you think! Especially if you have a nostril piercing as well, you might draw attention in two places rather than one. Opting for a tiny nostril piercing and a shiny septum piercing is a successful recipe.

55. White accessory for your septum

septum piercing (64)

There isn’t a huge difference between white and silver piercings. However, the material they’re made of is important. For starters, you shouldn’t wear anything else but surgical steel or gold if you know for sure that you’re not allergic to it. A professional piercer will probably not recommend gold as the best metal to wear in a fresh wound.

56. Wide horseshoe ring and a tiny dot

septum piercing (65)

A wide horseshoe ring is easier to handle, especially during the healing period. Cleaning it with saline solution to prevent scratches is advisable. The nostril dot makes the septum piercing stand out more.

57. Thick infinity ring for long nose

septum piercing (66)

Proportion and design are important factors to consider when picking a jewel and a spot to pierce. That way you will feel more confident and sexier when the job is done.

Glasses, dreads and a multitude of piercing types can go well together if you do it tastefully. This chick managed to find a combination that looks truly good, without making her face too crowded.

59. Rihanna’s statement nose ring

septum piercing (68)

Large and highly decorative jewels are considered statement jewels. Rihanna is known for always bringing something new to her looks. If you like her style, you can adapt it to your own style.

60. Narrow ring for narrow noses

septum piercing (70)

In contrast with the wide horseshoe ring, this one is a narrow horseshoe ring. It has the same shape, but it fits one’s nose differently. This is a celebrity look that you should take into consideration. Why? She is the living proof that positive feedback is guaranteed! In case you didn’t recognize her, this is Scarlett Johansson we’re talking about!

61. Not wide or narrow

septum piercing (71)

This piercing design is not wide, nor narrow. It’s in between.

62. Infinity ring that stands out

septum piercing (72)

This infinity ring is supposed to stand out. You don’t have to always get what fits perfectly to your face if you want to flaunt it like she does. That lipstick color draws attention to that part of her face anyhow.

63. Perfect look complimented by a piercing

septum piercing (73)

The truth is that you don’t need a septum piercing, unless you want it. You can look perfect without it, like this woman would. Even so, it’s a nice addition to a beautiful face.

64. Freckles and nose jewels

septum piercing (74)

This is how a septum horseshoe ring looks like on a face that isn’t covered with makeup. Are freckles and nose jewels a good combination? Definitely yes!

Gothic girls sport more piercing than princess type girls. They have a tougher attitude, but they are sweet at the same time. This look can be achieved with several face piercings.

66. Youngsters sporting nose rings

septum piercing (100)

This septum retainer confers the most discreet look you can achieve with a septum piercing. If you think you’re tired of it, give it more time with a retainer ring.

Don’t rush into picking jewelry just now! After you’ve properly researched a professional piercer, expect a fee that ranges between $40 and $90. There are few salons that only ask for $30 for a septum piercing. They don’t include a jewel though. Getting a stainless steel jewel from a salon that was sanitized is best for when you actually get pierced. Ideally, this one should be shaped like a horseshoe because it helps with the healing process. Happy piercing!
