What is the normal size for a septum

The most common gauge for a septum piercing is 16G. However, the piercer you choose may go up or down in sizes based on your anatomy and preferences. While 16G is often the starter gauge, some people go a size down (18 gauge) or a size up to 14G.

When it comes to the ring diameter, it various from 6mm to 8mm, depending on your location of piercing and your preference.
