If all your going to say is ‘don’t do it’ i’ld rather you not. I know its not going to be ideal but this is how I’m choosing to go around getting my septum pierced!

Oh dear… I hope this goes alright for you! I guess if you mess it up, septum piercings are tucked away inside your nose and won’t leave a visible scar…
I’d do it whilst looking down onto a mirror. that way you’ll be able to angle the mirror to see if it’s straight. Sterilize whatever needle you have (It should ideally be a piercing needle but you could use a long sewing needle too) by heating it in a flame til it glows white. Let it cool!!
When you do your piercing, wear latex gloves to give you a better grip on both your nose and the needle.
Please let us know how it goes, this sounds scary!
You could ask your parents to get you a high school checking account, it gives you a card that you can use as if your an 18 year old. But in my own personal advice, wait until/convince your parents to take you to a professional piercer. Doing it yourself is in no way possible sanitary, don’t take the risk. The probability of it getting infected is much higher than if you get it done by a pro. And if it does get infected, you’ll have to take it out and wont be able to get it re-done for more than a year. The nasal septum is a very precious part of the body to get pierced and needs to be done by a confident professional. it is very, i repeat, VERY easy to fake a nasal septum piercing. Get a normal circular barbell/pincher/captive bead ring, whatever you want and somehow cut it in half. Then glue each end to either side of your septum and viola! fake septum piercing until you can get it professionally done.
My sister did hers and just held it. There’s no guarentee you’ll get it straight but that’s the risk you run. Not gunna tell you that it’ll be better if you get it done professionally because you alresdy know that.
That will not happen, just be smart and go to a professional piercer.
