Remember when had my septum first piercing almost eight years ago? No, well out of all the piercings I've had my septum received the most opinions. The cliche bull references, why would you do that to your face, etc.
Knowing that other indigenous tribes had various body modifications, I always wished mine did. Inuits with their beautiful face tattoos, or piercings adorned by many tribes like Mohawk & Iroquois.
While waiting for this beautiful custom ox horn piece from @southshoreadornments. I came across an 1843 painting of an Ojibwe man Boy Chief. ---> Lo and behold on Boy Chiefs face what I assume is bone in his septum. So for anyone who's ever had crass opinions on my septum, I'm just trying to get back to my roots. ☺️✊🏽#ojibweorbust ..
