Also know, can I hide a septum piercing from my parents?

Likewise, people ask, do septums close fast?
If your piercing is fresh, it can close up in a matter of minutes. If you’ve had it for less than a year, you can expect it to close up within a few hours or days. The inside of the hole can close up rather quickly, even if you’ve had the piercing for years.
Can you sleep with your septum flipped up?

Do septum piercings hurt? … Everyone has their own pain tolerance, so it’s worth bearing yours in mind, but a septum shouldn’t hurt much more than a standard nose piercing and it shouldn’t go through cartilage. It’ll be a strong pinch, the urge to sneeze, watery eyes, and hopefully not much more than that.

A septum piercing is associated with people who want to set themselves apart. Whether other people will like them for it, they wouldn’t really care.

This piercing type goes through the narrow strip of skin on the septum just before the cartilage starts. It works best on noses with wider septums, as more narrow septums may not provide much of a surface area for the piercing.
