There are a couple of different ways in which you can make a fake septum piercing today. Each of these ways will require some jewelry making skill and the sniffing of eyebrow glue. Once you think about how much hassle this could cause, you’ll probably feel as though it would be easier to just get the piercing instead.
If you opt to remove your jewelry beforehand, you’ll delay the healing process and possibly cause yourself to have an infection.
It may seem as though there would be a lot of septum piercing pain but with a professional, trained piercer this won’t be the case. So, you should be on the lookout for someone who’s registered with the Association of Professional Piercers.
Of course, you should still visit the salon to make sure that it’s clean, well lit and using either sanitized or disposable equipment.
You will know this because the piercer will remove the equipment from a sealed plastic pouch. The piercer also needs to always wash his hands or put on plastic gloves before doing the piercing.
While it’s difficult to accurately determine septum piercing cost as it will depend upon where you live, who you have do the work for you and what type of jewelry you opt to initially use (circular barbells are more expensive than retainers). Generally you are looking for around $18 for a retainer and $20 for the piercing itself for a total of around $38.
The best advice is to take some time and think things through instead of rushing into getting a septum piercing. This will save you a great deal of pain and agony later on, after you have gotten the piercing.
