Tunnels & Smaller Hoops
If you’d rather style than bulk you can always go with using a tunnel and slide a smaller, more decorative hoop through! Simple, as can be, and you’ll have millions more options to try.
This is a great option for those working body-modified. Opt for a clicker and you’ll easily in less than a minute be work appropriate.
Screw the Balls!
If you’re opting for a traditional circular barbell there is one important aspect to consider when wearing thicker jewellery. That is the balls. With thicker jewellery come larger balls or oddly small balls. I say, screw the balls altogether.
I first started ditching the balls when I realised (very soon) that I couldn’t breath through my nose while wearing them. But the thicker the jewellery, screw the balls, and it’ll still look awesome.
Position with O-Rings
Thicker circular barbells and segment rings are a complete bitch to get open and close when they’re bigger than a size 14. I wouldn’t even bother with that trouble! Just remove the balls and take advantage of the (often free) o-rings. I like to flip my segment ring around and fix it in place with o-rings so it looks like a seamless segment ring! Easy!
Stack Small Hoops
Sneak in a couple hoops at once to fill the space! I’ve never tried this myself but I’ve seen it tried a thousand times. This was so popular they even started making them production style pre-stacked. I’d suggest opting for a plug style eyelet or ear-skin – which is more comfortable – so you don’t unwork your septum or find the style uncomfortable.
These are my septum piercing hacks for larger sizes. Does anyone even have a septum piercing now? They were so popular a couple years ago. Now it seems they’re going out of style again! So, do you have one? What about stretching your septum? If you’d like to try I have a post on the topic right here.
