i am an adult male-to-female transsexual, and my breasts are still developing (though i don’t know how much longer they’ll be doing this– probably at least another six months, though). i’m curious whether it would be advisable to get one or both of my nipples pierced– i wanted to do this before i started taking hormones, but i decided that, since my nipples would grow that i should wait. now they seem to have stopped growing (and are within the size-range of ordinary female nipples, so), but my breasts are still growing (16 months HRT, if that gives you any idea). given the possibility that my nipples could continue to grow and have just taken temporary leave of doing so, would it be unwise to pierce them right now? (and if not, would it have been unwise to have had them pierced when they were male nipples?)
finally, is there anything that would prevent me from getting my nipples pierced in a year or three, when my breasts have definitely finished growing?
It is in your best interest to wait until your breast have reached their final size before doing the piercings. A growth spurt could cause migration, leaving you with scarred up nipples. I am sure you have shown great patience to get this far along in your transformation, a little bit more patience in regards to the piercings would help ensure you do not do any unnecessary damage. Once you have stopped growing, your nipples should be totally fine for piercing.
I would advise seeking out an open minded and experienced piercer to help you with this though as it may not be quite as straight forward as regular nipple piercings.
