    alohaaaaa.
    i'm contemplating whether to get my septum pierced or not in the summer after all my a2 exams. the only -ves i can think of is when uni comes (hopefully). the course i've applied for starts with me being in hospital placement, would i still be allowed the piercing even when i'm on placement?

    all comments appreciated, please & a thankyou. x

    (btw i don't know why i put this under the health section ahaa).

    Probably not, although some areas of the country are more ok with that sort've thing than others. Can't you get a retainer for it, or if you have a horseshoe shaped barbell (rather than a ring) hide it inside your nose.

    EDIT: I mean a keeper, like this -> http://www.bodyjewelleryshop.com/onl...er_4627561.cfm

    You might be better off posting this in the Nursing section... I'd imagine the answer is probably not, though I'm not 100% sure.

    If it was purely for cosmetic reasons and not health & safety reasons though, you can just get a retainer and tuck it up inside your nose, that's what I do with mine when it needs to be hidden

    Wear a horse shoe rather then a ring and you can push it up inside your nose so you can hide it.

    Sorted.

    Hmm...I really don't think septum piercings are very attractive, they just remind me of bulls...but that's just my opinion I guess.

    Get a septum keeper and you should be fine.

    Scarlet Johannson has her septum pierced and she doesn't seem to let it affect her career....
