A Traditional African Style Remixed: 10 Gorgeous Photos of Naturals Rocking Septum Piercings

Avatar • Jun 15, 2015

Piercings are growing in acceptance across the world. It’s not uncommon for some folks in the workplace to rock a traditional nose piercing. However, septum piercings (piercing in between the cartilage and tip of the nose) are quickly becoming just as acceptable as a traditional nose piercing with the added benefit of being able to be hidden. Take a look at some of the most gorgeous ways black women are rocking this outstanding piercing:

Interesting Fact: The Fulani or Fula people are one of the Africa’s largest ethnolinguistic groups. With a population of over 40 million. They also traditionally adorn themselves with septum piercings.

What do you think about septum piercings? Do you have one? Have you pierced non-traditional parts of your body?

Love this! I recently got one myself and can’t wait until it’s healed so I can switch the jewelry.

Did it hurt? I plan to get the fake hoops but I can’t help but be curious about the actual piercing.

For me it didn’t hurt at all. It was quick.

I think septum piercings are beautiful!
I really want a piercing once I enter college, but I want a nose hoop. You should do a version of nose hoop pictures to go with this one!

It’s the only piercing I’ve ever really wanted. I think they’re gorgeous.

I think septum piercings are the worst I’m afraid! I think it’s the one piercing that I really actively dislike.

Can we start recognizing our own culture?” haha, I have had a septum piercing, stretched labret and ears for years. Constantly, had to deal with the evil looks from confused black people and even worse looks from white people who thought I was appropriating “their” culture! Funny!

How can you tell what people are thinking from a look?

Agreed, stretched ears and septum for over a decade! Modern primitivism is based on ethnic body modification practices.

Septums aren’t flattering I’m sorry. That stuff looks crazy to me.

No way on God’s green earth am I going to get a nose piercing or a tattoo ! My skin is beautiful as is & I get compliments on it. I’ve been using Dudu Osun REAL African Black Soap on my face for years & the only piercings I have are in my ears.

There’s always the feaux version that you can make from Michaels. No piercings, just the style!
