    Cool Oh No Not another septum Piercing Diary ? Afraid So folks !

    Hi Guy's & Gal's,

    As of 10.30am this morning I'm now a fully fledged member of the Septum club !

    I met a young lass whilst out picking up a click & collect parcel from my local Argos yesterday, she served me & I noticed she had a septum piercing. I told her I was thinking of getting mine pierced & she asked me if I had a studio in mind ? I said I wasn't sure so she recommended her piercer. I rang up the studio as soon as I got home to make an appointment for today, the receptionist told me that they didn't make appointments for piercings as they treat them as walk in's. We agreed a time for today & she said Trini the piercer would be expecting me in the morning, Her studio is in Sudbury in Suffolk so only around a 30 minute drive for me.

    I was able to park for free on market hill which was great ! Trini's studio was only a minutes walk away, talk about convenient ! I was a little early so waited outside for the studio to open, as you would expect the receptionist arrived first & opened up the shop so I took a seat in the waiting area. Shortly afterwards Trini arrived & introduced herself, we discussed the piercing type & placement. I mentioned that for work I would need to flip it up out of the way to hide it from view, trini said this was not a problem & she would fit a horseshoe rather than a ring. But she said as I need to flip it up it was best to start with a 14g 1.6mm piece of jewelry as this size would heal best if it required flipping up & down a fair bit, I was hoping to go a minimum of 8g 3mm but went with Trini's advice. She showed me 10mm dia & a 12mm dia horseshoes in 14g with small or larger balls (the balls on the 10mm were smaller than on the 12) I decided I prefered the look of the 12mm with the larger balls, Trini then prepared the piercing studio & called me in. She explained the procedure to me & made sure I was both happy to go ahead & understood what she was about to do.

    She asked me to lay down on the piercing table, after she had cleaned the inside of my nose & put some cream on the area to be pierced to numb it a little. It took a couple of goes to get the clamp positioned, this was mainly because I found the clamp to be quite painful once placed. When she was happy with the final placement she warned me it was about to happen, the actual piercing was for me less painful than the clamp itself ! I was relieved to have the clamp removed ! Trini then asked me to sit up & take a minute before she placed the jewelry, I didn't feel her fitting the horseshoe at all. Initially I bled quite a bit. But I put this down to the medications I'm on for my high blood pressure, Trini kept cleaning it with some cotton wool dipped in something ? & fairly quickly the bleeding stopped. Trini then asked me to get up & come over to the mirror to look at my new piercing, she was happy with it & I have to say I think it looks great so I was happy as well !

    Trini then explained to me how to flip it up & how to look after it, she said to ring up or drop in anytime if I have any issues at all or want to upsize the jewelry after its healed properly ! She advised me not to play with it too much & not to swap out the jewelry until the piercing has properly healed !

    It was then time to go & pay, I was also given an aftercare sheet which having now read seems very comprehensive.

    My overall experience of having my septum pierced is so far pretty good !

    I was very impressed with Trini at Illustrated Primate Tattoos & would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a piercing in the Suffolk area, I will be returning at some point to get my tongue pierced but probably not until my septum has fully healed.

    So that's day one Folk's !
