PA problem

Monday October 25th, 2010 @ 5:37 PM

Filed under: Male Genital

Since 2008, I’ve a prince albert, I stared by using a 8g ring, after a year, I changed it for a 6g, and even I used to wear a 4g ring…

Well the problem began approximately one year ago, when I changed to the 6g ring,I noticed a small white spot white into my urethra, more than a point it was a spot, It didn’t have any pain, no secretion, ANYTHING at all, just the white spot was there. I obviously went to my doctor, explained the problem, did all the tests and I was clear, so he just cauterized the little spot and after one month I was using my PA again.

Then, after 6 months I had that little spot again, so, I went to the doctor and he cauterized one more time.

he recommended me to change the jelwery, for something more nice with my skin, gold or platinum, after everything, I was using titanium. he also told me that more than a irritation problem or something, the problem seemed to be scar tissue.

Anyway, after 6 months, I had that little white spot, so, I really don’t know what can be causing it, I stopped using the ring for near two months, and nowadays I use a 8g, but I’m a little tired of all that stuff….

Any idea or suggestion???

Without knowing exactly what the “white spot” is, it’s tough to say how to remedy the situation.
It’s strange your doctor would cauterize the spot. Are you certain it’s not a wart?
How can you see it IN your urethra?
Usually, jewelry irritation doesn’t present itself painlessly or with white, non-weeping spots.
Perhaps lighter titanium jewelry is the way to go with slower stretching.

Dermal on finger..

Monday October 25th, 2010 @ 5:28 PM

Filed under: Piercing

I’m interested in getting a dermal on my finger or thumb like this..

http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs192.snc3/19971_276628883940_90705123940_3339565_7172677_n.jpg

but can’t find much info on it.

could you tell me how it’s done, how much it hurts, what to expect for healing etc?

Thanks :)

The procedure for doing a surface anchor on a finger would be the same as having it done anywhere else.
The area is pierced into, a small pocket is made and the jewelry is inserted.
However, the aftercare and upkeep of a surface anchor on the finger isn’t worth the hassle, in my opinion.
Hands are pretty high-impact areas that take a lot of daily wear and tear. (slipping into pockets, washing dishes, wiping bums…) Not the best placement for piercings.

Odd pimple on back of ear

Monday October 25th, 2010 @ 5:26 PM

Filed under: Ear

I have a snug piercing on my left ear that I got approximately 6 months ago. It was healing fine, but a few weeks ago I developed a weird pimple thing on the back of my ear that repeatedly scabs and bleeds. I got checked out by a doctor who took a culture and ruled out infection. It’s not a hypertrophic scar, either. Any idea what it could be and what to do about it?

Is the pimple behind where your piercing is? (That seems quite high for a traditional snug piercing)
It could be that, if it is where the piercing is, there’s a big of an abscess forming based on the postioning of the piercing and the anatomy of your ear cartilage.
Otherwise, it could be that you just have a cyst on the back of your ear that needs to be drained. Something to talk to your doctor about, for sure.

Micro dermal fell out

Monday October 25th, 2010 @ 5:24 PM

Filed under: Pocketing

recently one of the 4 dermals in my hips got irritated after I lost the disk. when it healed over it migrated a little under my skin so 3 days ago in a attempt to salvage it I first tried to massage it back to the old hole but then gave up on that idea and created a new hole for the dermal to come through this was fine for a day till went out took a shower apparently the two holes were too close and created one big hole and my dermal fell out. so for the last few days I just popped it back into my hip and covered it with bandages and one a day gave it a saline wash

should I just give up and let the hole heal or is it possible to pop it back in and let it heal back into place?

Usually, if a surface anchor falls out, it’s best to leave it to heal up and have it redone in a few months.
Stuffing the jewelry back in isn’t going to do it any favors and it will probably reject out even faster.
You also want to be very careful you don’t introduce bacteria to the area and cause an infection re-inserting the jewelry back in.

Nipple healing time?

Monday October 25th, 2010 @ 5:21 PM

Filed under: Nipple

Hey! I just wanted to say that I love your site, it always has great information. :)

I do have a question. I got my nipples pierced in Spain during March (Spring Break), one of them started giving me real problems and I took them both out mid July.

I know it’s best to go see a piercer and have them say if my nipples are healed enough to be re-pierced, but what’s a “general” time frame for healing? (When should I start to consider going to get them looked at?)

Thank you so much!

I tell my clients to wait at least 2 months after removing a piercing before repiercing the area.

After Tongue Stretching

Monday October 25th, 2010 @ 5:17 PM

Filed under: Tongue

Ok, so I have a very basic question. It’s probably nothing, but it has been bugging me quite a bit.

I stretched my tongue from 8ga to 6ga (ouch) about a month ago. It healed up fine and I continued on with me life. Two days ago it randomly swelled again right in front of the bar on the top of my tongue. It feels like normal swelling (when pressed it is firm), but it was so sudden I don’t know what to make of it.

Its a standard surg. steel barbell with space at both ends to shift and move. I have been eating a lot of tomatoes and acidic foods recently (and drinking lol), but I wouldn’t think it would cause a kick-back to the healing process! Should I just Crest it to death? Or should I spot it with Hydrogen Peroxide? I’m a body piercer and this is baffling me. Someone suggested it was a reaction to the metal, but I had Surg. steel barbells for years before I gauged it to the 6ga. Should I wait and clean? Should I switch to a titanium barbell?

-Confused piercer ^_^

Chances are, you may have irritated the fistula when you stretched it.
Starting up a gentle aftercare regime with some dead sea salt and water rinses and practising regular oral hygiene (Brushing your teeth 2-3 times a day) should help.
Stay away from commercial mouthwashes and whitening toothpastes as they can over clean the mouth and the peroxide in whitening toothpastes can cause extra irritation to the delicate cells around the piercing. (So no on the hydrogen peroxide idea on that note as well)

It could be a reaction the jewelry you’re wearing, depending on where you picked it up. Surgical steel is the same stuff forks and bicycle spokes are made of… you should be wearing implant grade materials in piercings.

Be sure you’re gently brushing the top and bottom of your barbell as well.

Dermals

Monday October 25th, 2010 @ 5:11 PM

Filed under: Pocketing

It is illegal to get dermals in NC, and for some reason I cannot find a site that states where they are legal. Can you help? I really want some, but I don’t wanna go on a safari just to find an state that can do them

You could call a local piercing studio and ask if you’d prefer not to open an internet browser.
I’m not 100% sure on the piercing laws in the states.

implants on feet?

Monday October 25th, 2010 @ 5:08 PM

Filed under: Implants

hi,

is it possible to implant a subdermal 3d silicone jewellery on the top of the feet?

(i’ve only seen hand, chest, arm, leg implants so far)

the 3d silicone piece couldn’t be very thick (problems with shoes…)

does anybody know anything about this?

plus: where can i buy silicone jewellery? (preferably in europe. or a good online store)

thanks!!

You could certainly get a subdermal implant on top of your foot, but you’d have to avoid wearing shoes on it while it’s healing and settling into place.
You’d also have to take into consideration wearing different style shoes in the long run as the extra “girth” on your foot could cause certain shoes to not fit properly.

metal allergies

Monday October 25th, 2010 @ 5:04 PM

Filed under: Surface/Unusual

I have a metal allergy, it affects various parts of my body. my cartilage piercing did not take thanks to the allergy, have to go out of my way extra picky for rings for my nipple piercing, tho it does not affect my tongue piercings. I have always wanted a corset piercing but am wary because it is alot of money to put down if my body just rejects it. Nickel is the primary metal my body reacts to, tho it reacts to a few others as well. Any ideas?

For starters, regardless of the jewelry, corset style piercings do not last in the long run and I can’t think of any reputable piercers who’d tell you different.

As far as having nickel allergies, you want to be sure you’re being pierced with implant grade materials. “Surgical Steel” and “Surgical Titanium” doesn’t really mean a thing.
