When I was 12, I got the top of my ear pierced after begging my mom continuously to allow me to do it. I thought I was so edgy with that tiny sparkly on my upper ear. Little did I know that that small piercing would later turn into me wanting more, more and MORE! Here I am, 24 years old, and I just recently had my septum pierced. It was such a spur of the moment decision. I saw a picture on Pinterest of a girl with the piercing and thought “That’s cute, I want it!” The next day, I walked into a parlor and had it done.
I have several tattoos, and for some reason, I feel that people are more judgmental about my septum than anything else! Why? Is it because the septum is kind of in-your-face for everyone to see?
