Bleeding and Bruised Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing

I received a message from a woman who got a VCH piercing and she wanted me to evaluate it for her:

After checking out your website and researching this piercing, I went ahead and decided to go get one for myself!

I have seen other reviewers say they have sent pictures of their to evaluate if it has been done correctly, and since you are not in my area piercing, I went to another piercing place to have it done.  However. I  still want your professional opinion on whether it was done correctly.  Being such a delicate area, I want to know mine is done right!Bruised VCH Piercing

I know my piercer did use the NRT [needle receiving tube].  I do have concerns because he went through with the needle, then said the skin on my hood moved (which I know must happen at times) and had to pierce me again.  (You can see in the pictures, above the top ball where I think the first needle went through before he had to move it down.)  So this is where I lost a little confidence.  Afterward, I bled profusely for about 4-5 hours almost as if i had my monthly cycle which also worried me.  So I just want your opinions on this, if it's normal, and if the piercing looks done correctly to you!

The bleeding has stopped and I am in no pain, I have been cleaning it as instructed, but I don't feel any "heightened" sexual sensations at this point either.  Maybe that will come after healing?  I apologize for the bruising and some of the dried blood, as this piercing was done less than 24 hours ago and still has to heal.

I do hope they are close and clear enough and that the lighting is well enough for you to make a proper evaluation.  Thank you so much for taking the time to look.  You're awesome!

Best regards, A.

Surface Anchors or Surface Piercings


Hello Elayne,

I would really love to have your opinion and thoughts on my "future piercings". I have been contemplating a new piercing for quite some time now. I am thinking about getting four Micro Dermal Anchors on my chest. I will enclose a link/image to the exact placement of the dermals at the end of my message. I stumbled across your wonderful website after doing a lot of endless research. I think that it's awesome that you actually take the time to respond to all of us who message you in need of help or wanting questions answered ! Please forgive me as I have a few loaded questions for you ! I also wanted to say that after much investigation there is literally (or almost) next to no one in the state of North Carolina that I would remotely trust to do these piercings. After cross referencing with the Association of Professional Piercers and lots of thought, I have chosen to travel almost six hours to Immaculate Body Piercing of Columbia, SC. To my delight, I have just learned they are also on your list of Piercer Referrals!(Yay!).

I apologize ahead of time for this being so long. Sorry!

A Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing Questions (with photos)

Below is some correspondence I had with a woman who got a VCH piercing and she had some concerns about it:

Bruised VCH PiercingHello Elayne, I got my VCH piercing a few days ago. Looking at it today I noticed it's pretty bruised. Is this normal? It doesn't hurt other than if I touch it it's a bit tender.

I'll attach a couple pictures so you can see the piercing and the bruising and tell me how it looks to you.
Thank you.

My reply:

Any piercing (or break in the skin) can bleed, bruise, and/or swell. So that's not really of concern. From what I can see, it looks normal, but if you want to have me fully evaluate the placement, I need to see an image of the underside. See this page for explanation of the photos I need to see.

Is this the care you're following?
