Hi there!

I have been thinking about to get my Septum pierced, but I have tend to get keloids. I have one keloid in my ear already, but it doesn’t really bother me, since I had been thinking of getting an implant in my ear anyway, so it was just good. But I am now a bit worried of the fact that when I’m going to pierce my Septum, that if it becomes a keloid. :/ How usual is it to get a keloid in the septum, if you do the piercing between the cartilages, on the skin like part? (I’m sorry for a bad explanation here. xD) Thank you for a great website! :)

Septums are usually a pretty easy cartilage piercing to heal, however as keloiding is a genetic condition - your body will be the determining factor in how you heal.

I don’t think I have ever actually seen a well-placed septum piercing get any serious scar tissue forming, but it doesn’t mean that it isn’t possible.

I would suggest to see an experienced piercer who can feel your ’sweet-spot’ (the thinnest part of cartilage in your septum) and make sure that you are both confident in their ability to get it just right. Too high or too low can be all sorts of troubles and increase the chance of scarring forming dramatically.

Make sure when you get it done, to submit some pics to BME also!

  1. The sweet spot actually isn’t cartillage at all, it’s just a thin piece of skin. The bottom is a thicker piece, and up from the sweet spot is where the cartillage begins.
