After 3 years of wanting one, I finally went through with getting my septum pierced! Years ago I had gone in to a shop to have this done, but the piercer discouraged me because he didn't think it'd look right. I think he was wrong. I've had close friends not even notice this new piercing because "it looks like it's always been there", haha.
This was my 7th piercing and by far the most painful, but it was the clamp that was excruciating for me, not the needle.
