Obese and Pierced with flat nipples.

I got my nipple pierced at what I thought was a reputable parlour. They peirced me with a 16 gauge. I didn’t have to removed my bra etc and no measurements were taken. Long story short I was in pain, and I went to another parlour closer to me a for a follow up consultation and they said that I was peirced with the wrong gauge, that the bar was too small, and that it has migrated into the nipple a bit. They also said that the first parlour pierced me as male nipple and that they didn’t actualy pierce my nipple they pierced BEHIND it.

So…I’m just wondering…what now? This new parlour said that I had to let it grow out and heal and I should keep the piercing. They moved me to a 14 g with a longer barbell.

I find that the balls still press too much against the piercing area and I am feeling pain in my breast.

Any suggestion? I am so distressed over this and it’s a real blow because I really waited so long for a piercing.

Things to know, I am female, over weight with flat nipples. Please advise

Based upon the information you’ve provided, and the fact that I can’t actually see your piercings, my initial suggestion is to remove the piercings, let them heal and have them done properly. Whether the studio you went to for the follow-up evaluation is the right studio for the re-piercing you will have to decide yourself. It sounds like they mostly gave you good information, but the fact that they said you had “let it grow out and heal and I should keep the piercing” concerns me a little..but I again, I can’t see your piercings so maybe that was sound advice.

If you have flat nipples, smaller balls on the barbells will often help reduce the pressure the jewelry puts on the breast. There is a limit to how small the balls should be of course, as you don’t want them to imbed in the piercings.

The pain you are feeling in the breast is likely due to the piercings being placed behind the nipple.

Best of luck!

  1. Just want to mention that I pierced one of my own nipples at 16ga, and had the other one professionally pierced at 16ga, and never had any problems. I later went up to 14ga because most cool jewelry was 14ga, and I have heard that piercers generally recommend 14ga for nipples, but 16ga was never a problem for me.

  2. She described herself as overweight … I don’t really see the humor in “upgrading” her to obese/adding insult to injury
