For those who have had this done:
Was the piercing crooked when pierced, did it settle straight? Would it be askew do to initial swelling? Please help me.
Thanks. Hyper

When I had mine pierced, my artist had to do it an a funny angle because my septum itself is crooked (as is my entire nose). It appeared straight from an outside view.

Swelling might cause it to look crooked.

Sometimes the jewelry might make it look crooked. For instance, I was pierced with a retainer, and it looked crooked, but I switched to a seamless hoop and it looked straight.

Sometimes if it's a little crooked you can manipulate it to be straight based on how you wear your jewelry. I wore a tusk for a little while and that straightened it out a little, because it's anchored in place by your nostrils.

Typically unless the piercer does a real bad job, it's not too terribly noticeable if it's a little off. It'll drive YOU crazy, but 9 times out of 10 no one else will notice.

Can you post a picture and how old the piercing is?

Mine is straight. The Circular barbell did not look even because the piercer bent it so I could tuck in up into my nose. I got it done at 14g and today I stretched to 8g. I bought and 8g retainer, which was hard to find, but I don't like it because it is too long to be tucked in my nose, it's also apparently impossible to stretch because I tried with pliers. I put in an 8g SS tunnel instead.

I have a tiny nose, so the piercer had to bend the retainer to have a wider opening so the legs would fit up into my nostrils. lol

my nose isn't straight, I doubt my septum itself is straight but it was pierced straight, all my jewelry hangs straight and always has... *whistles for a pro*

Mine was pierced with a retainer and i was TERRIFIED it was crooked. When i put a CBB in it looks straight. Someone also told me that if you stretch up sometimes that straightens it out. Mine looks dead on after i stretched it to a 12g and am using a retainer that i know is even :)

I like looking up my nose and marveling at how crooked it is. It's a good thing that my punch isn't meant to be visible. It came out a hair crooked.

I don't know that my nose is crooked so much as large and hooked. I went thru school being called Gonzo and not realizing in time to relate it to Hunter S Thompson instead of that annoying-ass blue muppet. So as my friend Ali told my mom when i got my nostril and then my septum pierced, "its so big you just have to decorate it" :)

*edit to add*

Not that it would've had anything to do with HST but, you know, it'd have made me feel better at the time.
