Concealing Your Septum Jewelry

Are you someone who loves your septum piercing but wants to hide it for a while? Perhaps you have a formal event or a job that doesn't allow facial piercings. If so, a septum retainer or flipping your circular barbell or horseshoe-shaped ring up into your nose could be the solution you're looking for.

In this blog post, we'll discuss how to use a septum retainer and give you a step-by-step guide to hiding your horseshoe ring inside your nose. Whether you're new to septum piercings or a seasoned pro, read on to learn more!

Septum Retainer

A septum retainer is ideal for when you (temporarily) do not want to wear your septum piercing but want to prevent your piercing from healing shut. After insertion in your septum piercing, the retainer is flipped up into the nostrils keeping the piercing open, yet virtually invisible.

While some people may find the appearance of a septum retainer less aesthetically pleasing than other types of jewelry, such as rings or barbells, they can be a great option for situations where a more discreet look is desired. 

Circular Barbell and Horseshoe-Shaped Ring

There is one more way to hide a septum piercing, if you have a circular barbell or a horseshoe-shaped ring.

You can flip the jewelry up into your nose to hide it. This works best for healed piercings, as flipping the jewelry up can be uncomfortable if your piercing is still healing.

Hiding a horseshoe-shaped ring inside your septum can be a bit challenging at the beginning, but it is possible and becomes super easy with some practice and patience. Here's how to do it:

  1. First, make sure your septum piercing is fully healed before attempting to hide your horseshoe ring inside it. This will help avoid discomfort or injury to the piercing.

  2. Insert one end of the horseshoe ring into your nostril, making sure it is positioned correctly inside your nose. Then, gently push the other end of the ring up into your septum.

  3. Once the ring ends are inside your nostrils, use your fingers to adjust the position of the ring so that it is centered and laying flat against the inside of your nose. It may take some practice to get the positioning just right, so be patient.

  4. If the ring is still visible from the outside of your nose, you can try flipping it up into your nostrils as a way to hide it. To do this, grasp the ends of the ring and gently push it up into your nose until it is completely hidden.

Remember that it may take some time and practice to get the hang of hiding a horseshoe ring inside your nose. If you experience any discomfort or irritation, stop and try again another time. It's always a good idea to consult with a professional piercer for advice and guidance on how to properly wear and care for your septum jewelry.
