Septum clickers are one of the hottest new looks for girls today. The piercing location referred to is the nostril septum. This type of piercing is usually a ring with a straight metal bar that clicks into the ring and secures the jewelry in the nose. The cool part of this piercing jewelry is that it clicks into place inside the nostril and the decorated portion of the jewelry is the only part seen.
The gauge used in these types of piercings are normally from 16G & 14G for this location of piercing. There are also different diameters that you can select from to have the clicker right near your nose or hanging further down with ¼” being the smallest and ½” as the largest. It is important to measure and determine what will fit best on your nose. The healing time for these piercings is around 6-8 weeks. They usually run around $50-60 for this type of piercing. Jewelry can range in price from $10-$30 for an average septum clicker.
The septum piercing style is adopted from the Middle Eastern culture where it represents wealth and beauty. When worn in today’s culture it is an attractive piercing that mimics the style of a goddess. The look is flawless and very appealing. There are even false septum clickers that can be placed in the nose to mimic the look of a real septum piercing. They can be removed if the location or workplace do not allow facial body jewelry. The real septum piercings can be pierced with jewelry that can be hidden in the nostril to obstruct from the view of employers.
Some great styles for girls include the “encircle me” septum clicker, which has a centered circle with a stone in the middle and the clicker ring. Another great style is the angel wings as a centerpiece decoration on the septum clicker. Another less girly style septum clicker is the chain style clicker that looks like a sliver chain necklace is hanging from the nostril. Some septum clickers are in the shape of a heart and that style is very attractive for those looking for a cute style. Paved crescent clickers with stones are also a very popular choice, going back to the Middle Eastern culture style. Whatever you decide, the septum clicker is a great piece of jewelry for this location.
One of the best things about this type of piercing is that it can be hidden if necessary in the nostril, without the need for removal. This is important, especially during the healing time when the piercing should not be removed or played with. Even better is when and if you decide to remove the piercing, there is no visible scar, since it is in your nostril. It also heals very quickly and closes in a short amount of time once removed.
