Controversial and cool septum rings are being talked about a lot since many celebrities, such as Lady Gaga and Rihanna, have come out sporting clip on ones.

I have always wanted a septum piercing but as a complete wimp and with the usual parents saying "please don't get a face piercing" I have never had one. Not because I want to copy celebrities or pretend that I've got the real deal but when I heard that clip on ones were being worn in the mainstream and more places were selling them, including asos and topshop, I have considered buying myself one and even wearing it to the office.

Some feel this clip on piercing is controversial as it's a copycat or rip off to those who have a real septum piercing and it's cultural appropriation to people to which it's part of their heritage identity or religion. 

I also know that some people just plain don't like the look. A friend of mine with a septum piercing  is a waitress and had a customer say to her "You would look prettier without that through your nose" and later ask her why she had got it done. 

Obviously with this post I believe septum piercings, real or clip on, for all those who want them.  I personally want something sleek and simple but there loads to choose from. I've rounded up some that are sitting in my current basket.
