Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing Placement Question


Thank you for your blog and insight. When I decided on a VCH piercing I researched your blog and found infinate piercings in Philly to be reputable and only about 2 hours away from me. I had her done at the end of October. They were excellent, professional, clean...wonderful experience.

I guess my question to you is now that I feel I've healed, when I look at correct vch piercings mine looks different. It seems to stick out more than others.

Now I do realize anotomy is different so I try not to let it bother me, however it appears correct from the view I sent, according to your dots I see you mark on others photos. The side view shows it doesn't seem flush with the skin like others are. (She likes to lean to one side...ha) Could it possibly be pierced wrong? Perhaps I need a larger gauge. I was pierced at 12 and just ordered a 10 to stretch so perhaps that may help? Thanks for your time.

Duke Piercings on FTM Genitals and "Snips" For Piercers

Duke Piercings with straight barbellsI got a message from a fellow piercer who had asked me some questions about performing "Duke" piercings. This is the term I coined for Princess Diana piercings when they are performed on a Female-to-Male transsexual. Yes, they've been done on more than one. You can find more information about them here. There's also another photo and more description about the Princess Diana piercings here.

Hey Elayne! Thanks for the tips on the duke piercing. Here's how it turned out. I used 14g 9/16 sbb and the back side of a 10g needle as a receiving tube. Left one went no issues, right one I did 2x bc lost connection on insert. You can see where the initial incise was. I changed the positioning bc I thought it was too low, but now it seems too high. :/ either way, he was stoked and I was stoked to do them for him! Thanks again for your insight. Happy holidays to you an your family!

Yes, Yet ANOTHER Surface VCH Piercing

Argh! I'm SO frustrated. I loathe it when women contact me for advice and information, and I supply it to them, and they STILL end up with botched piercings. That's exactly what happened....

I received a message:

Q-tip Test for VCH Piercing, with swab tip marked

I've been doing research on VCH piercings and have tried the Q-tip test but i'm not certain if I'm doing it correctly.  The plan is to have it done as a Christmas present to myself but I want to be certain on whether or not I am built properly for this piercing.  Attached are the best photos I could capture while trying to do the test.  Thank you in advance for any information/suggestions that you may have.
 
Respectfully, W.

Bleeding VCH Piercing

Bleeding VCH piercing; shallow with long jewelryI received a message from a concerned woman whose VCH piercing was bleeding:

Hi,
I just got a VCH piercing and I know bleeding is normal and so is swelling but this is my vagina and it's kinda scary to pierce it and not really expect it to swell and bleed, when I was told it shouldn't be that bad, that spotting was normal. But I'm not really spotting it's pretty consistant but it's not a lot. I can't really explain it. I've attached some pictures because like I said before it's kinda scary.

Sorry the pictures arent the most attractive. But I don't feel like it looks right and I've been reading your responses, so I sent them. 

I really hope this lady didn't screw up. I'd hate to have to take it out...
Thank you for your time.

Hi there,
It isn't the bleeding that concerns me. This excerpt is from The Piercing Bible:

Hood Piercing Helps Woman with Vulvodynia

I received a wonderful message from a woman who visited The Piercing Bible website, read my book, and became well educated about piercings.

She has a medical condition called vulvodynia and when I looked it up, I was quite surprised to find this information:

A recent study found that one in four women experience chronic vulvar pain at some point in their lives, making vulvodynia a very common disorder affecting women and girls of all ages and ethnicities.

The good news is that she made sounds decisions about getting pierced and wrote to me about her highly successful VCH piercing:

Female Genital Piercing and Masturbation

I received an interesting email from a woman who is interested in a genital piercing, but had concerns about whether a VHC would affect her preferred style of masturbation:

Hi,

I wanted to thank you for maintaining your website as a really informative resource on genital piercings.

I want a stimulating piercing and have been told I'm not a triangle candidate but could get a VCH. I like to masturbate by rubbing the shaft of my clitoris through my hood - have your clients reported that it's harder to reach the clit shaft if there's jewelry there?

Thanks so much! D.

Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) Piercing Discussion (with Photos)

I received a message with some photos from a woman who had received a Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) piercing, but she was disappointed with it. She sought the piercing to enhance her sexual pleasure, and she was not experiencing any added enjoyment or sensations. I saw the photo, and this was my comment:

Botched VCH (Vertical Clitoral Hood) Piercing Redone Successfully

Below is an email exchange I had with a woman in the UK who got a botched VCH piercing, and then got it redone properly:


Hi! My name is S., I live in the UK. I looked at your site before getting my VCH, I am happy with my piercing but it dosn't look like any on the VCH I've seen on your site and wondering maybe he's made a mistake? It's still a bit swollen as I've only had it a few days, I hope to hear back from u soon! Thanks! S. =)

Bad VCH piercing on the side of the hood--upside downHI S.,

You definitely do NOT have a properly placed VCH piercing. You have a piercing located on the side of your clitoral hood. A VCH goes in the center.  Further, the jewelry is not touching your clitoris, which is the thing that is potentially stimulating about the VCH piercing. Also the way the jewelry is resting, the piercing is higher on the inside of your hood than it is on the outside. This is not a proper placement and it causes your clitoral hood to be hooked over the top of the jewelry, so you're likely to get migration, scarring, or both. Additionally, you can expect that it will be uncomfortable, or downright painful.

I'd ask for my money back, take the jewelry out, and seek a more qualified piercer to do it for you.

Elayne
