    I guess it's due to the nostril being through cartilage and the septum through the sweet spot, so skin?.

    I think septum looks better and shouldn't hurt that much

    I have both and I thought they were equal. Everyone's pain tolerance is different so you can't really make that assumption as a general statement. If you like either, just do it. The "pain" time is so small anyway - go for it!
    Piercings I currently have (14x)
    Left nostril
    Septum
    3x each lobe
    Industrial (right ear)
    Tragus (right ear)
    Rook (left ear)
    Conch (left ear)
    Tongue Web Frenulum
    Nipple (left)

    I have my septum done and this is the second go around and I had my left nostril done and to me the nostril hurt more. It even hurt more than getting my septum repierced through a bit of scar tissue. But either way I wanted it so a few seconds of discomfort was so worth it and the nostril has been retired for almost a year, it just didn't want to be there.
