Prince Albert Piercing Complication-Paraphimosis - Updated

I received an urgent message for help today from a young man who had received a Prince Albert piercing a few days prior. He wrote:


Hi my name is D., I am writing to you because my girlfriend received a VCH from you and highly recommends you. I just received a Prince Albert piercing on Friday March 19, 2011. I stopped bleeding the next day but, yesterday I noticed that I was extremely swollen on my foreskin. It hurts a bit. Not really sure what I should do because the person I went to is currently on vacation. Can you give me any tips on how to make the swelling go down?

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to read my email.

I asked him to send photos, which he did.

Paraphimosis--Swollen ForeskinParaphimosis--Swollen Foreskin and Prince Albert

Upon seeing the pictures, I advised him to head to the Emergency Room immediately. I recognized the condition called paraphimosis--swelling of the foreskin.In his case it was caused by the foresking being retracted for too long. Sometimes the fluid build-up needs to be drained before the foreskin can be replaced.

About his visit to the ER, he said:

Atlanta Piercing Visit is Coming Right Up February 11-13, 2011

I'm super excited for this weekend. I'll be piercing in Atlanta for the first time in quite a few years. I've got lots of appointments lined up, mostly for female genital piercings including VCH and triangle piercings, but also for nipples, and some male genital piercings, including an apadravya, pubic piercing, frenum piercings, and dydoe piercings.

In going through my messages, I got more emails from women who have received botched genital piercings. One woman got a VCH that was so far off to the side, I suggested she consider a matching one on the other side of her hood, and she'd have a perfect set of Princess Diana piercings. I can't even imagine how a piercer accidentally gets a midline piercing so far off to one side? Was he piercing with his eyes shut? No wonder people are willing to travel from other states (and even other countries!) to get pierced by me!

Anyway, I just want to encourage everyone who wants to get pierced to do their homework and select a qualified piercer who has the necessary training and skill to accomplish the job safely, accurately, and quickly. So how can you be sure? By being an educated consumer! How do you get to be an educated consumer? One way is by reading The Piercing Bible. You'll learn everything you need to know to evaluate piercers, select quality jewelry, make good choices for placement on your body, and for aftercare during healing.

 

 

Thumbtack Posting: Genital Piercing Expert

I just posted about my upcoming piercing visit to Infinite Body Piercing in Philadelphia on a site called Thumbtack (and it was free).

Here it is:

Elayne Angel - Genital Piercing Expert.

This is what it says about the site:

What is Thumbtack?

Why can you go online right now and buy any product you want but you can't do the same for tutors, handymen, dog walkers, or other local services? Thumbtack is changing that.

Thumbtack isn't like typical local search directories that simply return business listings with ratings and reviews, leaving you no better off than the paper Yellow Pages.

Instead, Thumbtack gives you the ability to vet, contact and book service professionals the moment you find them.

Seems pretty cool!

Question about a Prince Albert Piercing

I received a message from a piercee who had a question about his Prince Albert (male genital) piercing. Here is our exchange of correspondence:


 Hi I wonder if you could help me please. I got a PA done about 6 months ago and I think that it maybe moving up rather than staying in place. I changed to a smaller diameter of ring without a ball a few months ago and it seemed to be better. Its 2.4mm thickness. I'm also conserned about the lack of tissue that seems to be holding it in. I've had bad experienced with peircing before and I'd rather not take this out! Thanks, Jon

Hi Jon,

How much tissue is there between the end of your urethra (where the jewelry rests) and the placement of the piercing? If it is too narrow, that can cause migration. And once migration starts, it can be hard to stop it.

Feel free to send photos; I'd be happy to evaluate it for you.

Hi
 
Thanks for getting back to me. I think theres around 1.5cm between the piercing and the urethra. But it moves quite far over if you know what i mean so its less than that sometimes. Im worried about having sex with it in incase it comes through. I'll try and send some photos.
 
Thanks
 
Jon

Jon,
Yes, please send a photo or two. That doesn't sound like very much tissue. Does it seem that there is less and less tissue between the piercing and the edge of your urethra, or does it seem stable?
