Keeping Up With the Kardashians Star Kylie Jenner’s Septum Piercing
Kylie Jenner of Keeping up with the Kardashians fame caused quite a stir on social media this week when she posted a booty photo featuring what appears to be an indent in her rear. The image showed her wearing a tan crop top and matching thong bottoms, and viewers noticed what appeared to be an apparent nipple piercing mark in her pert posterior.
She has yet to respond, but many followers are worried. One user even posted a photo of their own nipple on Twitter which looked suspiciously similar to Kylie’s. Others have asked why Kylie has such an obvious piercing and believe it may have come from plastic surgery; this could also explain why Kylie was wearing such an obvious bra.
Last year, Bella Thorne stirred up controversy when she tweeted about “pulling a Kendall” and going to get her own nipple pierced. Although she previously had one pierced, it never made headlines on Instagram.
Nipple piercings make for a stylish accessory, especially when they’re made out of shiny metal. When selecting your jewellery for this purpose, you have three options: stainless steel, niobium or titanium. Niobium is an inexpensive option that won’t irritate the skin while titanium may be more costly but should provide comfortable wear for you.
After getting your septum piercing, you may experience some sharp pain and an eye-watering, nose-tickling sensation which may feel like you need to sneeze. After six-8 weeks have passed since the procedure, however, you are free to change your jewellery as usual and the hole should heal completely.
Hiding a septum piercing can be easy, especially with horseshoe-shaped jewellery. Simply flip the bar out so it’s less visible – there are plenty of options including rose gold and white gold to choose from!
For a more dramatic style, opt for septum rings that are encrusted with crystals or have an intricate gold bar. There are also other styles you can try such as delicate chain designs that hang down your nostrils or simple hoop designs that require no fuss.
No matter which style you opt for, it’s essential not to rub it as this could cause irritation and infection. Furthermore, avoid touching it with unwashed hands as this introduces bacteria into the area.
To maintain the health of your new piercing, use antibacterial soap and water daily to clean it. Next, apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to protect the wound from infection. Finally, take painkillers or an ice pack to any tenderness you may feel.
It is best to have your septum pierced by a professional, who will use only sterile needles and instruments. Alternatively, you can purchase a kit and do the job yourself at home; this is both safe and economical; however, it requires time and energy to learn the fundamentals of piercing.
