Triangle Piercing Question

I received a message from a concerned piercee who had recently received a triangle piercing:

I was wondering if you could give me some urgent advice. :(

I have had my triangle a week, it has slightly moved/torn forward about 2mm, but I was told to expect this.

But I am more worried about the fact I can see slightly red/shiny bumps coming up around both piercing holes. I am worried that this is scar tissue and that it won't go away? It's been exactly a week now since I've got it done and I am happy with it but I'm afraid if I leave this in that I'll have lumps of scar tissue which will develop and not go away.

My outer labias do cover the jewelry a bit when my legs are closed and I'm afraid this is what will continue the problem. I have only been using sea salt water soaks on my piercing. I am pretty sure that the CBB is titanium as I went to a well respected studio with a well known piercer.

Do I take out the jewelry now before the problem develops?

Thank you,

S.

Triangle piercing, more forward than usual

Happy Customer

I first received an email from this client in October of 2008. She was seeking a referral to a local piercer to get a horizontal clitoral hood piercing. But after speaking to me, she decided to wait until I visited California. I finally did her HCH piercing in the Spring of 20099, and now she wrote me again in April of 2010:

Hi Elayne,
Just wanted to tell you that it has been almost a year now since I came to Long Beach to have my piercing done by you and I'm loving it. It healed with no problems, I'm getting ready to experiment with new jewelry now.

My main reason for this e-mail is to tell you that I am thoroughly enjoying my piercing and I thank youso much, I feel very lucky to have had you for my piercer.
You're an angel.

Love ya,
A

My response:


Hi A.,

I'm so glad to hear that you had an uneventful healing period and that you're enjoying your piercing! I really appreciate you letting me know. It is much more common that people take the time to write a a letter when they have a complaint rather than a compliment, so thanks very much for taking the time to share your positive feedback. Enjoy!

Elayne

Triangle Talk

I received a message from a woman who is interested in getting a triangle piercing. She had sent me some photos and I told her she appeared to be anatomically suited to a triangle piercing. Then she wrote:

I contacted a piercing studio and the receptionist told me a triangle is a ''nightmare piercing, not suited for someone who is sexually active, it's a horrible piercing.'' I was also told ''It'll stretch''. Is this actually true?

I feel really gutted because I've heard good things about the triangle and love the look of it but I've never heard this before. I know it's anatomy dependent but I thought it was a fine piercing for someone with the right anatomy, which I believe I do have after doing lots of research.

Can you please shed some light on this?

Yet Another Botched VCH Piercing

I got an email today from another unfortunate woman who got a misplaced VCH piercing that was terribly painful to receive:

Hello

I got a vertical clitoral hood piercing in Fargo, ND and it does not even look like its in the right spot. I went back and had the piercer take a look at it and she said the top is in the right spot but the bottom is off a little. I researched and researched before doing this and thought that it is supposed to go up under the clitoral hood. It is off to the side not even by the clitoris itself.

I’ve read and talked to people who have had it done and everything says that the pain when having it done was like a pinch. This pain I had was excruciating…not once or twice but THREE times. My husband was with me and said she stopped in the middle of it and went to get a bigger tube to pierce with. In getting a second opinion from another place…the lady looked at it and says, “that’s not right, I am sorry honey”. When we called back to where I got it done at, she argued and said that it was done right…after she had said that the bottom was not right. We tried to call the manager who also started a piercing school there and they said she is out of town and they didn’t know when she would be back. I was looking so forward to this and it turned into a nightmare. Is there anything that I can do?
Thanks, D.

Question about the Nefertiti Piercing

I received this message from a woman interested in getting a dangerous genital piercing:

 

Dear Elayne,

I have been looking into a piercing for quite a while now, but it is a rather rare one. I have asked two different piercers about it and was refered to you.

 

I am told that you are one of the best and can give me the best opinion/advice. While looking at genital piercings, I saw a Nefertiti and I am now set on it. It is a combination of a christina and a vertical hood. I need to know what you think of it and who you would recommend.

 

I am 98% positive I have correct anatomy for it however they were both concerned about a flexible bar and the  fact that it is so long. My friends mom is an OR nurse and looked into the bar and said it was alright. If you could look into it I would greatly appreciate it. I have done some of my own before and could attempt it but am worried about getting it straight and the correct needle and would rather have a professional do it.

 

I know you are probably busy but this would mean a lot to me as it is my "dream" piercing. If you could either tell me what your opinion is or give me a number and times I could reach you it would be awesome. If you do not want to I understand, but would like to know that so I am not waiting for a reply. Thank you very much for your time.

 

Sincerely, Z

Hi Z.,

Thanks for your email.

 

The reason I don't cover the Nefertiti or the Isabella piercings on my webpage is because I don't do them; I consider them too risky. (I do however, have an actual clitoris piercing, and will do those on women who are anatomically suited. I say this by way of explaining that it isn't just the intensity of the piercing itself that is my concern.)
