SEPTUM

Why does my septum feel bruised?
DEAR BODY CANDY: When I got my septum pierced it was very painless – almost just a weird sensation of the needle going through my skin. But when it got pierced on the exit side, I felt a strange almost pop like sensation. It was very subtle and not crunchy and didn’t hurt so I don’t think it went through the cartilage. But now, a few days after it’s been pierced, that same side feels more bruised than the other. Why could this be?

I also have my nostril pierced from last year and that never ever felt bruised. Is it normal for septum to feel more bruised?

My new belly piercing looks short, can I change it out?
DEAR BODY CANDY: Hi! I got my belly pierced 2 weeks ago but it looks short! Can I change the barbell? The piercer told me not to until 9 months but won’t change the barbell.
