16 stunning photos that will make you want piercings

The perfect piercing with a pop of attitude.

Septum piercings. Increasingly popular, they’re also known for dividing people firmly into two opposing camps: obsessed and against. I might be biased, but there’s something about a septum piercing that you don’t find in other kinds of facial piercings: edgy, but sweet.

Easily flipped up and hidden, they’re perfect if you’re considering a piercing but worried about whether it’ll affect your chances getting a job.

Granted, this is a piece of jewelry that comes heavily inspired by certain aspects of the world, just like other piercings that have now gotten increasingly mainstream (nose piercing, anyone?). Septum jewelry was extremely popular with South Indian dancers, certain Native American peoples, parts of Nepal, and Bangladesh.  The septum piercing is very common in southern Nepal, especially in older women. Many women wear these septum rings to show social, tribal, and religious status.
