I have been wanting to get my septum pierced for months and Saturday I finally found the courage to do so and I couldn’t be happier. Why was I struggling to get it in the first place? There are two major reasons why it took me so long. First of all I’m a pussy when it comes to pain. I’m the type of person who looks things up on the internet only to feed my own fear. In my Google search history you’ll find things like: “Septum pain level”, “septum piercing gone wrong”,… I’ve watched plenty of videos of girls (and boys) getting their septum pierced only to discourage myself from getting what I really want. I know it’s wrong to do this but I really can’t handle myself. Yes, I admit, I am the that kind of girl who googles any ‘unusual’ pain I experience. If it were up to the internet I have had all types of cancer, survived several strokes and I’m that one in a hundred who suffers from a certain kind of weird illness. The internet is lovely but if you have a tendency to be a hypochondriac like me, the internet is your worst enemy! For those who want to get their septum pierced but are a bit scared like me: yes you can feel a little bit of pain, but it really isn’t that bad at all!
The second reason why it took me so long to get it done was the reaction I would get from others. Before getting my piercing, I asked several people how they felt about people with their septum pierced. Most of the responses I’ve got were negative ones. But in the end I don’t really care about what other people think. I do this thing called whatever the fuck I want! And as you can see, my piercing is making me pretty damn happy and happy girls are the prettiest!
