Is there a major difference between the two?

Hello - I noticed there are at least two different types of surface bar (the staple bar and ones with 2 and 10 o’clock angles \_/). Is there a major difference between the two? I have my cleavage pierced with the more angled surface bar and am doing my best to lower the rejection rate, however I am concerned because I’ve read alot about surface piercings being done with curved barbells and how terrible they are. I greatly appareciate any help you can provide me!


The ones that are at an angle closer to 45 degrees than 90 degrees are intended for curving surfaces. The end goal of the rise of a surface piercing is to exit the body perpendicularly. On most fairly flat areas of the body the 90 degree bends are preffered. For some curved surface though the 45 degrees are more suited. I will say though that 95% of all 45 degree rise surface piercings I have seen used would have better been suited for a 90 degree rise. The times when 45 degree is more suitable are few and far between, but it’s important for piercers to be able to adapt to these different needs.

You said you know some reputable places in upstate NY to get a microdermal at. Could you let me know of some of these places please?


Well, I would recommend Scarab Body Arts in Syracuse. You can visit me their and I would gladly help you out. If Syracuse is too far, send me an email with your location and I’ll see if I can point you to someone closer. [email protected]

…since piercing - could my clit be damaged for good?

Hi,

I have recently had a VCH done last Sunday. Now I have pretty high pain threshold, never wince when tattoo’ed, had five children, nipples and tongue pierced and none of that really phased me.

However the pierce took several seconds, felt as tho my flesh was being ripped open and for the first time ever I screamed the place down, it was a truly agonising pain.

Since then there hasn’t really been any pleasure and at points the pierce has felt downright uncomfortable. During my salt soak this evening in the bath and felt the piercing for the first time properly and suddenly has this awful dread that she had pierced my clit. I then got my husband to check who said actually yes, the clit was pierced. With the aid of a mirror I checked myself, the piercer has entered at the hood, but then pierced the entire length of my clitoris, the end of the bar comming out at the end of the clit.

I am so upset as well as incredibly worried. I have had no clitoral sensations since piercing - could my clit be damaged for good? Will it ever feel the same way again? Tomorrow I am going to another piercer to get their opinion on what has happened as well as going to see my doctor.

If anyone could give me any advice I would realy appreciate it.


A hood piercing is such a simple, simple piercing to perform and yet we still hear stories like this every once in a while.

Most likely if you removed the piercing it would heal back and sensation would come back as well. HOWEVER, if my sexual sensation was at risk, I would take NO RISK and would seek advice from an OBGYN. Some suturing may be needed or possibly a more serious procedure. In any case good luck.
