Question about Nipple Piercing - UPDATE IN RED

Posted by on Mar. 27, 2013 at 1:03 PM

I want to get it done.  My brother's husband (BIL) will be doing it.  Who do you determine what gauge to use?  How was your experience?  Do you wear a ring or rod?  How long do you have to wear it before you can take it out without it closing up?  Can I hear your story?

 

Update:  I did it.  And I'm glad I took everyone's advice and had it done by a professional.  The piercer had both done within a minute.  And I love'em!  Thanks for all the bashers who pretty much said I'd be stupid if a professional didn't do it!  Hope everyone has a good day.

I have mine done. I believe they determine the gauge by the size of your nipple. I got mine done in october and I haven't taken it out yet but than s just because I'm extra cautious. It really doesn't hurt too bad. I only got one done though. I personally like the studs because I don't want something hanging off me that could get caught on something

I just had standard gauge. I had rings but I preferred the barbells.
They really didn't hurt that bad, my industrial bar in my ear hurt worse.
I no longer have them because I had surgery and had to remove them.

As far as I know every piercing starts out with a 12 or a 14 gauge. If your BIL is a professional piercer then he should know that. If he is not I wouldn't allow him to do it. There is a standard for all beginning piercings. You can wear either a ring or a barbell (which is the technical term). I don't remember how long it takes for nipple piercing to heal all the way. Why would you want to take it out?

 He not a professional.  But he's done several of his friends and our friends.  And they're all happy with theirs.  I think he even did his own.  I just didn't think I'd be able to leave it in during a mammogram.
