Changing Barbells to Rings in Nipple Piercings

I received a message from a woman whose nipples I pierced and she had questions about changing the jewelry:

Hello Elayne! I got my nipples pierced by you last year when you were at Obscurities, Dallas. I just want to let you know that this is my favorite piercing yet! They healed so beautifully! So after a year I was wondering if getting my jewelry changed to rings instead of barbells would be possible. If I did do the jewelry change (meaning I got to a piercer to get them changed, I'm kinda chicken in that situation) would my nipples once again become tender as they get used to the new jewelry? I still clean them daily. Your input would mean a lot to me! Thank you again for everything you have done! S.

Body Jewelry Styles: Captive Circular Barbell for Pubic Piercing

I received a message from a reader with a question about a certain style of body jewelry:

in your book under the male pubic piercing section it says to use a captive circular barbell for this piercing and i really like the idea. is this a piece i will have to make or do you know where to buy them as i cannot find them anywhere. Steve

My reply:

Hi Steve,

Any studio that sells circular barbells and captive beads should be able to put one together for you.

Captive Circular Barbell

It is a design I invented by combining those two ordinary body jewelry items! It is just a matter of finding the right size captive bead, and sometimes adjusting the gap between the circular barbell balls by slightly narrowing or widening the ring. It is super easy to do for anyone who is familiar with body jewelry.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Awsome, thank you. I really appreciate your help and love your book. I really enjoy knowing what to expect and how procedures are supposed to go along with proper placement. My peircer and I always talk about everything before we begin and I like that what he says almost always mimics your book.
