Beautiful Triangle and Fourchette (Female Genital) Piercings by Tiffany Diamond (With Photo)

I got this great feedback from a woman who saw my website and made use of one of my piercer referrals:

Elayne! I LOVE this website! After months & months of reading about different genital piercings, no other place has given me such detailed information. From what I have been reading, you know EVERYTHING about genital piercings & I wanted to wait until you came to Detroit to get a piercing but In July I just couldn't wait any longer and went to see a piercer. I live in Shelby Township, MI & I was so excited to see that you referred Tiffany Diamond from Lady Luck located in Waterford, MI.

I went to see Tiffany just to ask about the triangle piercing and maybe gain a little more knowledge, & ended up getting the piercing that same day! Tiffany was very professional and made me feel extremely comfortable. I definately would recommend her to somebody interested in getting a genital piercing. The piercing did not hurt as bad as I thought it would..... The anticipation building up was worse than the actual piercing itself lol Thank you so much!

VCH Piercing and Urethritis

I received a message form a woman who was experiencing a problem:

I've had my VCH piercing for over a year now. I love it and I never want to remove it. But recently I went to the Doctor for URETHRITIS and of course they recommended that I remove and or use plastic jewlery. Should the balls on the end of my jewlery be plastic or would it be much safer to get an entire plastic piece.

My reply:

Admittedly, I'm not a doctor, but I know medical professionals often have a tendency to blame health conditions on piercings whether that makes sense or not.

One concern with having your doctor focused on your piercing as the cause of the problem means that the real reason may not get addressed.

A VCH is not located very near to the urethral opening. The image shows an improperly placed VCH piercing marked with an arrow where the jewelry should be resting, and the line marked at the bottom shows the location of the urethra. As you can see, the jewelry is quite far away from the urethra!

Another Accidental Clitoral Glans Piercing (With Photos)--FOLLOW-UP Added

I received this message from a woman who got a terribly botched genital piercing:

 
I just got a genital piercing done today and shortly after the piercing I noticed it looked a little bit off. I started doing some research and I can’t find any piercings that look like mine. The gentleman at Steel N Ink in Port Dover, Ontario, told me that it was a Christina piercing BUT from the research I did the Christina look s nothing like what he did for me.

He clearly had no idea what he was talking about. I had told him I wanted a vertical clit piercing and when we pulled up pictures online it was the vertical clit hood piercing that I wanted and I told him that was what I wanted done. I know very well what the VCH looks like and this looks nothing like it or the Christina either. Plus when I got the piercing I think he went right through my clit because I was practically screaming when I had it done. The clit should not be  piercing for a VCH but the end of the piercing should sit on the clit. This goes through the middle of the hood through the clit and out the bottom where I pee. So when I do urinate the ball on the bottm of the piercing gets urinated on ,I dont believe thats normal. Its like my hood is stapled over my clit and and through. Plus it wont stop bleeing. Its only bleeding a lil but its constant and my clit is very sensitve right now. lll send pictures, please help me.
 
Thank you.

Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) with Inappropriate Jewelry (Long Post, Small Balls)

I received a photo from a woman who found my website after getting her Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) piercing done. She thought something didn't seem right with it. This is my response:

VCH with Overly Long Bar with Tiny BallsIt might be in the right spot. I'd need to see it from underneath to be sure. See attachment that shows a shallow VCH piercing with the optimal placement marked.

Also, your bar is far longer than it needs to be. This can cause discomfort and also excess trauma, which can delay healing and cause complications such as scarring.

Further, the bar looks like it may be thiner than the safe minimum size (14 gauge), and the balls are very small, which could result in embedding. I would suggest you get a shorter bar in, and one that has larger balls than what you're wearing now.

Even if the jewelry is thinner than it should be, I would advise you to wait until the piercing has fully healed and settled (at least 3 months) before getting a thicker piece of jewelry put in. It would not need to be repierced to do that. This tissue is quite malleable and stretchy and can go up in size quite easily. A piercer can do it with a device called an insertion taper. It might feel somewhat tight or pinchy, but if you stretch it slowly enough, it will not cause damage or need to reheal.

Are you following the aftercare as suggested here?

Botched Triangle and Nipple Piercings

Here is a message exchange I had with an unfortunate woman from Australia who suffered needlessly (multiple times!) at the hands of an unqualified piercer:

SORRY-THE GREAT PHOTOS THE PIERCEE SENT AND GAVE PERMISSION TO LET ME USE WERE TAKEN DOWN AT THE REQUEST OF THE HER HUSBAND.

Accidental Clitoris Piercing: Failed Attempt at a Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing

This is no joke. A woman went in for a clitoral hood piercing and ended up with an accidental piercing of her clitoral glans! This is one of the reasons I try to suggest people travel if necessary to get pierced by me or visit the piercers I refer to. We know how to place a VCH piercing safely and in the proper location. Unfortunately, many piercers haven't got a clue.

Many women end up with shallow VCH piercings or surface VCH piercings, but this is an error I've seen time and time again. PLEASE BE CAREFUL! Ask your piercer where they got specific training to perform genital piercings--not just how long they've been piercing. I know of piercers who have been doing a poor job for 10-15 years or more. A lengthy career does not guarantee competence!

Here's the message I recently received:

Hello Elayne, Accidental Clitoris Piercing (VCH attempt)
I have a quick question about a piercing that I received a week ago.  I had a VCH piercing which I believe was too shallow and migrated and so had to be removed.  I let it heal for about 6 months and then went to a different studio to have it done again.

The first time was exactly as you describe with a 'pinch' sensation and my ears were definitely a more painful piercing.  This time was one of the most painful experiences of my life, which I attributed to it being placed properly this time and having some scar tissue.

Hood Splitting vs. Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) and Triangle Piercings

I received a message from a woman inquiring about hood splitting:


I'm writing to get your opinion (and maybe some information) on clitoral hood splitting.  I currently have a vch and triangle, which I believe are both placed perfectly.  But, I'm still having problems achieving orgasm (I was hoping those would help).  I think it's because my hood is rather thick and even when I'm "hard" my clitoris isn't exposed at all so it makes it difficult to actually stimulate it.  I've been trying to do some research and maybe find information about hood splitting and where to get it done (I'm located in the midwest) but I can't seem to find much of anything.  I was hoping that maybe you could give me some information on it.

Thank you!

Christina and VCH Piercing, Lorum and Frenum Piercing

Below is a correspondence exchange between me and a woman who had questions about genital (and ear cartilage) piercings for her and for her boyfriend:

Hi Elayne!
 
I'm sure Atlanta was glad to have you back! Unfortunately for me, I've moved to Oklahoma for a while. I keep up with your schedule so I'm hoping that one of these days, I will have the pleasure and privilege to meet you.
 
I have two questions and since ladies should always go first, I will ask the question in regards to the Christina piercing. Lol. I've done some research on it and find it very attractive. Can you tell me more about it and is it and ok piercing for a woman to have?

Secondly, my boyfriend wants to get a frenum piercing however, it will be his first and only piercing and his main concern is the placing of the piercing itself. He was curious about, and sorry for being graphic but, masturbation and intercourse. After it's healed, will the placement affect what he does with his penis? I'm also curious myself since I'm the one who suggested it after we looked at several different kind of male gential piercings and he asked me which one I liked. Anyways, that's all I wanted to know.

Thank you. T.
