    A retainer will flip up your nose. One thing to ask about this piercing is wether the piercer intends to pierce you through the sweet spot this will affect the healing time and the amount of pain involved.
    Im a piercer who's scared of needles, no really i am........ Well when they re aimed at me

    Pfft, that's barely even worthy of being a proper con. It's more like a scrotum con.

    Because flick a scrotum and the owner is rolling around on the floor screaming for hours. Scrotums are such pussies XD

    there are no cons if you really want this piercing. just got my septum done with a retainer a few days ago. it was not that painful, the only part that made my eyes water like mad was when the retainer was placed in and flipped up. was not painful just eye wattering.

    Kev how is your septum piercing doing?

    The part of your septum with no cartilage - there's a lump of cartilage at the very bottom of your septum - if you pinch just above that you should feel an area where it's just skin. That's the part that should be pierced - not through the cartilage.
