How To Care For Septum Piercings

Septum piercings have retained a slightly “hardcore” reputation compared to traditional nose piercings, but they are no more painful or hard to take care of than an ear piercing. Septum piercings are not cartilage piercings: they are pierced through the small area of soft, cartilage-free skin in the septum. This means that the pain and healing process are more similar to an ear piercing than a nostril piercing.

One advantage of septum piercings is that they can be easily and completely hidden – surprising for a piercing that is literally “in your face”. A septum keeper is a U-shaped piece of jewellery that flips up inside your nose, rendering your piercing completely hidden from view. For this reason, septum piercings are ideal for people who cannot have visible piercings at work or school. It allows you to keep your piercing private or make a statement when it suits you.


How To Care For A New Septum Piercing

Septum piercings are easy to care for and usually heal within 1 to 3 months. To care for your new septum piercing, clean it with saline solution daily. Try not to touch the piercing and be careful that it does not snag on clothing. Septum piercings tend to stay clean, although extra care should be taken if you get a cold while your septum is still healing. Refrain from swimming, submerging your septum piercing in water or changing the jewellery, as these actions can introduce harmful bacteria into the piercing.

If you will need to hide your septum piercing while it is still healing, I suggest getting pierced with a titanium septum keeper. This will allow you to hide the piercing without changing your jewellery, which is never recommended during the healing period.

Once your septum piercing has healed it requires very little care. Keep it clean and consult your piercer if you notice any discomfort or changes to the piercing.


How To Care For Nose Piercings

Along with ear and belly button piercings, nose piercings are one of the most popular body piercings worldwide. Despite their popularity, it is important to remember that they are cartilage piercings and always go to a professional, dedicated piercer rather than a mainstream jewellery shop or hairdresser. A professional piercer will have more training and be able to give you proper advice about aftercare. Another benefit is that if you ever have any problems with your nose piercing, you can go back to your piercer and they will usually advise you free of charge. Professional piercers do this for a living and are much more likely to spend time reassuring you than someone who works in a jewellery shop the rest of the time.


How To Care For New Nose Piercings

Nose piercings take between 12 and 16 weeks to heal, during which I recommend you do not change your jewellery. You will need to keep your piercing clean but otherwise try not to touch it too much – this can interferer with the healing process. You should clean your nose piercing with saline solution at least twice daily. Use a cotton bud soaked in saline to gently clean around piercing site before turning your attention to the inside of the nose. Mucus produced by your nose can “seal” dirt to the piercing site, so take extra care to clean your nose piercing thoroughly. You should also avoid submersion in water and swimming until it is completely healed.

How To Care For Healed Nose Piercings

Once your nose piercing has healed all you need to do is keep it clean and react promptly if you experience any pain or discomfort. A healed piercing should not require daily cleaning, but keep an eye on your nose and clean it when necessary. If you experience irritation or pain, the first thing you should do is thoroughly clean your piercing and your jewellery. Try and think of any reason that your nose piercing could be irritated – the culprit is often cheap jewellery or a cold. If you think your jewellery has irritated your nose piercing I recommend switching to a titanium nose stud or a BioFlex nose stud. These are biocompatible materials that usually reduce irritation. If you have a cold, a little irritation is par for the course. Try to keep the piercing clean and be gentle when you blow your nose. If the irritation persists after you have changed your jewellery or your cold has passed, consult a professional piercer.


Sweet and summery, butterflies are the perfect motif for gorgeous piercing jewellery.

Butterfly Ear Piercing Jewellery

Below are three of my favourite pieces of our butterfly ear piercing jewellery.

Micro Bananabell Bonus Pack

Eyebrow piercings are extremely prone to infection, especially if they are accidentally knocked while healing. Once your eyebrow piercing has healed, it is important to clean your hands before changing your piercing. As this area is so prone to infection, many people do not like removing the piercing. It is for you that we have brought out the Micro Bananabell & Threaded Accessories Bonus Pack, as it allows you to change the design of jewellery without removing the bar from the piercing. There are three different designs per pack, including black dice and rasta designs.


Tongue Bar Jewellery Set

Each pack comes with six different balls, so essentially you are getting six different tongue bars for under £6.00. Two of our best selling Tongue Bar Bonus Packs are the dice and jewels.

To keep your nose piercing feeling and looking great, you can’t beat a titanium nose stud. Titanium is one of the most comfortable metals for body jewellery and it is an excellent choice for nose piercings. Here at Body Jewellery Shop we have a choice of over 30 titanium nose studs including jewelled and plain studs in a range of anodized colours.

Unlike surgical steel, titanium does not contain nickel or other cheap metals. Many people react badly to the nickel in surgical steel and find titanium nose studs much more comfortable. Titanium is also hypoallergenic and can shorten healing times compared to other metals. If your nose piercing is taking a very long time to heal or is often sore I definitely recommend switching to a titanium nose stud.

Curved Titanium Nose Studs

There are two basic designs used for titanium nose studs: curved nose studs and labret-style nose studs. Almost all of the studs available are based on this design. Curved titanium nose studs have a hook shape that many people find very comfortable. You insert these nose studs by using a twisting motion, so they are easy to insert and remove. The curved part of the stud sits flush with the inside of your nostril. Below are just three of our curved titanium nose studs. All of these designs are available in lots of other colours and styles.
