On Monday I took the plunge and got my septum pierced!

I am not going to lie to you guys and say that it didn't hurt because it was a 9/10 for pain. It was such a scary and an intense 3 minutes of my life (my friend said it took 3 minutes but it felt like 10). For a first real piercing, besides ear lobes, it was a big step because I know that it is one of the most painful piercing you can get because of where it is and the fact you cannot get it numbed as it is so close to your eyes.

Lots of people do not like septum piercings but I had wanted it for a few years and I do not want any other facial piercings. For me it is a good choice because it is symetrical on my face and you can hide it by flipping it up when you want (I wear mine down every day because I don't work and my college is obsolutely fine with piercings and tattoos).

It cost me £25 which I think is a reasonable price. The picture with the red lipstick was 2 days after I got it done and the other is on the day I got it done (excuse the lack of make up). At the moment it is a little uneven; however, when the swelling has gone down it will be even and symetrical.

If you have any more questions then leave them in the comments, thank you,
