It can do either.  It depends on your piercer and their preference (or yours).

Most of the time, the needle goes through the skin inside your nose. It also depends on how big you want your piercing to be.

If I Could Get A Septum Piercing, It Would Be Through The Cartilage

I like septum piercings. ALOT. They are easy to hide and i find them very cute under the right circumstances.  Although I've explained my point of view to my parents it is probably the biggest no-no next to getting pregnant in my fathers eyes. So having this mostly hidden piercing will be both my rebellion agents his irrational  judgments, and for my own satisfaction. I have to do it myself though. I'm only in 9th grade. I've got the hollowed surgical steal 14 gauged needle, Iíve got the clamps the alcohol wipes, the lubricant the surgical stainless steel retainer the gloves and the hygiene information. Just one problem WHERE/HOW DO I PEIRCE IT?!?! I've done all the research and still the only answer I'm getting is just don't do it your self. Please help <33

The piercing is supposed to go through the skin-some call this spot the "sweet spot". If your piercer goes through cartilge, there is something wrong.

There's a thin layer of skin in between the thick skin on the bottem of your nose, and the cartilage inside the nose. If you pull your lips down and put your finger in your nose you can feel this thin layer of skin easy.

The piercing goes in this skin. I actually just did mine a few nights ago, it went really well.

The safest way to do the septum is through the skin in your nose. It's how I have mine done.
If you pierce the cartilage, it's got a much higher risk of infection. If you notice when you move your nose up and down, the cartilage shifts a lot. This constant rubbing and irritation leads to infection quite easily.

on the lenght of your nose in the middle, would be more reliable not too pierce the cartlige, but is up to you, remember cleaning with Q-tips, and Salt 1:3 water, and remember moving the rings constantly not sideways unless clean, but up and down to reduce the scab to grow on the wound (piercing), if you need other questions i'll be happy to answer, i'm not a bosy piercer but i do study it!
