Insertion Tapers and Stimulating VCH Jewelry

I reveived a message recently:

Dear Elayne,
I got my VCH done last June by Kellan at infinite in Philly and I've been very pleased with it. He was a great and professional piercer, he calmed me down and talked me through it. I got a curved barbell but I've decided I want try out some different jewelry. Do you have any ideas for styles to increase stimulation?

Also, next month I have to have a test and my doctor said I have to take the jewelry out. How long can I leave it out for? I can't get back to Infinite any time soon. Thank you so much! A.

Gold Curved Bar for Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing

 I receeived this message from a woman who wanted to know if she could wear gold body jewelry in a Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) piercing:


I'm interested in a vch piercing and my question is will a 14k curved bar be appropiate for this type of piercing?

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

I received a message from a woman inquiring about a genital piercing:


 I was on a piercing forum and a girl made a post about a "high HCH" piercing. She didn't really go into detail, just mentioned that she has it. While I sent her a message for more info, I figured that if anyone could shed light on the subject, it would be you. I can't find any pictures or   info on the piercing aside from people saying that they have it. I was wondering what makes a high HCH different from a regular HCH piercing? How is the procedure different and would it be a viable piercing since I already have a VCH?

I would appreciate any info that you can give me and I hope you come back to Philly to pierce soon since i missed you last time!

Thanks, J.

VCH Piercing Concerns

I received a message from a woman who was concerned about her VCH Piercing:

Hi Elayne, VCH with short jewelry

While I was traveling, I recently went to a studio you recommended. The piercer you suggested wasn't at the shop when I went in, but it was the last day I was in in town, so I let one of his co-workers do it.

The piercer used a 14-gauge, 7/16-inch curved barbell.  I know it is probably fine, but I'm a little concerned about the placement.  The inferior ball is retreating far up the hood, and I have to tug for a bit at the tissue to see it.  I'm worried that the ball might become pulled into the wound if I leave it there for the 6 weeks needed to heal--it's a tight fit.  Did the piercer go too far up the hood, or use a barbell that's too short?  Or is it ok for now? A.

Caring For Acrylic Body Jewelry

I received this message today:

Hi,
First and foremost I would like to say that you have a good looking and very informative site, which is somewhat hard to come accross in the piercing industry. I saw that on your blog area you answer Q & A's from your readers.

I have many customers that ask me questions about acrylic jewelry and proper ways to clean them. Searching on the internet for a answer to this question seems a little tough and many suggest using a mild soap and towel dry the jewelry.  As a piercer, how do you recommend to sanitize acrylic jewelry?


Thank you! :)
