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.

A Shallow Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing With Photos

I received a message from a woman who had visited this site and she thought there was something not quite right with her VCH piercing:

I just got a vch piercing. While it seems to sit right I am concerned it is a bit too shallow.
I have attached some pictures, would you advice having it taken out/redone later?  Is there any way gauging up would help? (it is a small diameter at the moment.)

My reply:


The piercing is quite far away from the apex of your hood. If you would like to have a piercing that is further from the edge of your hood (where the VCH is optimally placed) then you should remove this jewelry and have it done by a different piercer.

If you're happy with it, you can heal it, but I would NOT advise stretching, since it is shallower the it should be (closer to the edge of your hood). Though what you're wearing looks unusually small from what I can see--or at least it doesn't look proportionate to your anatomy.

VCH Piercing too Deep (with Photo)

I received a message from a woman in the Caribbean who got a VCH piercing and she felt it wasn't right:

Deep VCH piercingHoping you can help. I'm a very avid from from all the way in the Caribbean that spends a lot of time on your site. Recently (yesterday) I got a VCH done that I've been wanting forever.  However, it does not look like the pics I see on your site.  I think the ring is either too small or it was pierced to far up. Meaning the ring enters exactly at the top of my clitoral hood and  looks like its fighting to stay in.  Can I send you a pic and you let me know if I should take it out please please? I really don't want anything to go wrong in my precious nether region.
Thanks!

 

Asked for a Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing But Was Given a Christina Piercing


I received a message from a woman who was concerned about her "VCH piercing"

I got a vch 2 wks ago and when I initially got the piercing, it was very snug and didn't move much, I couldn't even see it when I stood straight up. I clean it 3 times a day with sea salt in water but now it slides either all the way down or all the way up. It doesn't seem to be much tissue there any more and the curved bar I have sticks out prominently, so much I rolled over on it in my sleep last night and pulled it. Could it have been done wrong? I'm really worried it won't turn out right, please give me some insight.

Christina Piercing (instead of the VCH requested by client)

I requested a photo, then got this message:

Infortunately, when I got home and went to use the bathroom, I pulled my pants down and my barbell fell out. My piercing had ripped out. This picture is 2 weeks after I got it.

Do you think the same thing would happen if I have it redone? What did I do wong?

 

My reply,

Unfortunately, you weren't given a VCH piercing (assuming that's what you requested). Yours was more like a Christina, which is placed above the hood at the lower portion of the pubic mound. It was far above your hood instead of through it. I marked your photo to show you where the bottom part of the jewelry should have been resting. Your piercer was off by MILES!

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.

Shallow Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing with Dangerously Long and Large Jewelry

I received this message from a concerned piercee:

I got my piercing done two days ago and the skin that is on top of the bar hurts really bad to be touched.  Also where the top ball sits when I move it so I can clean it hurts. Also when  i got itI done it was the worse pain I have ever felt in my life!I please help!

Interesting Question about "Effectiveness" of Female Genital PIercings

I recently got a very interesting question I hadn't been asked before:

Though you may not be able to answer this I'd like to ask if you know an estimated percentage of women who sexually benefit from VCH and HCH piercings. My main reason for doing it is enhancing orgasms, not anatomical "beauty". I've read that few women truly get more or easier orgasms through piercings. If its less likely I'd have some improvement its probably not worth it for me.
Would you have any idea? 
Thank you!
T.

My reply:

Did you read this page of my site: http://piercingbible.com/female-genital-piercings ?

It explains that VCH VCH and Triangle Piercing and triangle piercings (both shown in image, right) are the two that are most commonly "functional" for women and those are the placements that are more likely to increase stimulation and sexual enjoyment. And that the HCH is primarily ornamental for most women.

I can also say that I do get a great deal of positive feedback from women who describe the genital piercings I do for them as "great" or "wonderful" and report, "I love it!" but they don't necessarily provide me with particulars in every case. From the feedback I receive, I'd have to say it seems "worth it"--as that is the overall sense I get from my clients. Here's a comment from a recent posting on my guestbook:

Elayne Angel: Piercings In the Year 2011

For those who don't know, I live (very happily!) in the Yucatan of Mexico, and I periodically travel around the US to do piercings in the fine studios of my colleagues.*

Last year I took nine different piercing trips spanning from Los Angeles to Atlanta, Seattle to Philadelphia, and some places in between, like Detroit and Oklahoma City.

I pierced a total of 32 days last year. I performed 549 piercings on 383 clients, including 246 Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) piercings, and 100 triangle piercings, among others.

And it was A BLAST! Thanks so much to each of my clients who went through the process and put forth the effort to make an appointment with me to get pierced. In many cases you've traveled to see me--sometimes great distances. I'm honored, and I take seriously the trust you place in me to do my job.

Last year's record distance was a woman who traveled from Dubai to West Hollywood to be pierced by me! This year's contender appears to be a woman who has booked an appointmet to get pierced by me in Philadelphia, and she is coming from Japan.

I am incredibly fortunate and my life is truly amazing! In many ways I feel like the luckiest person I know. As long as I'm sharing, here's a few photos that show highlights of 2011:
