Inside: The best mustache septum ring trend ideas for you to try to change up your septum piercing.
The mustaches on everything trend came and went in the early 2010’s, remember: “I mustache you a question”? But it’s still a fun and quirky addition to anything you may need to make a little funky.
Especially when we’re talking about a septum piercing that could actually play with the idea of a mustache, it’s cute. And the 2010’s are back anyway, I bet it will be in the next wave of Y2K inspiration pictures that come around on TikTok and Instagram!
Get ahead of the nostalgia curve and bring back the mustaches on your septum!
It will be a conversation starter and I bet your TikTok comments would call it camp.
We love a good fun and funky accessory, but what does it look like to actually hop on this trend/trend resurgence? Check out these pointers and then some mustache inspo pictures and see if this is your next funky move!
How Much Does A Mustache Septum Ring Cost?
As with any piece of jewelry, the price range depends on the quality of the metal and where you buy the jewelry. You could buy a septum ring that is 18 karats of gold for $200+, or you could buy something simple on Amazon for under $20.
Whatever your price range is, you can participate in this trend! You probably know by now what kind of metal works best for your skin and piercings, so keep that knowledge in mind when shopping for your mustache septum ring! Don’t sacrifice the quality of your piercings to jump on a trend for cheap.
Does It Hurt?
No matter what charm your septum ring has or what shape it is, if it’s healed (which it should be if you’re changing it out!) it shouldn’t hurt much to add a little mustache look to your jewelry.
If this is your first change out since you pierced your septum, it might feel a little odd and a little weird since it could be a different size or shape than your piercing is used to, but ultimately, it won’t hurt you!
Play around with it and different little trend ideas, starting with this one!
How To Not Get A Mustache Septum Ring Infected
Again, hopefully your piercing should be healed before switching out to a new piece of jewelry, but even if it is, there are precautions to take to make sure that you’re not introducing foreign bacteria to your septum piercing.
When you get the new jewelry, go ahead and give it a good clean. We probably get pretty lax on this practice once we get used to switching our piercing jewelry, but it’s still a good idea to clean your jewelry before changing it out. And while you’re at it, clean the one you take out too.
You never know how well it was handled before put in its packaging so be on the safe side.
Use a saline solution from the store, your piercer, or a DIY version, and either soak the septum ring or wipe it down with a towel or cotton pad soaked in the solution. Let it dry and replace your rings!
How To Switch Out This Type Of Piercing
This depends on when you have in and what kind of mustache ring you landed on! If you have the classic horseshoe, you’ll simply unscrew the ball at one end and slip it out. If you have a clasp hoop, unclasp and remove, and a retainer, simply slip it through.
To put in the new one, there are a couple different shapes you could have: the hoop with a charm or the metal mustache shaped rod to slip through the piercing.
A majority of the time, the mustache charm is on a cuff, meaning it’s not a real piercing! So if that’s what you have your eyes on, just put it on the septum bridge of your nose and you’re good to go!
If you have the shaped rod, it’s the same on both ends, so slip one end of the rod in and through until it’s centered under your nose! Easy peasy.
Minimalist Mustache Septum Ring
There are some of these mustache septum rings that are wild and crazy, and some that are simple. If you want to ease into it and simply play with the trend, these are for you! They’re fun because they’re still bold enough to grab attention but they’re not too fun and crazy that it’s out of place with a pretty standard outfit.
You can find these in black, gold, and silver for your minimalist vibe, or even the purple rainbow titanium colorings if you want to add a little pizzazz to your minimalist mustache septum ring.
It’s a fun accessory for the likes of those who like to make statements with what they wear. If you have a piercing and like to be a generally bold accessorizer, this is for you.
