Argh! I received yet another message from a woman who went in requesting a vertical clitoral hood (VCH) piercing and ended up getting her hood pierced to her clitoral glans pierced due to visiting an unqualified, untrained piercer. She wrote:
I recently got a VCH piercing but I think its not placed right. As you can see the piercing does not come through the hood, the lower ball is too far down. When i got the piercing it was very painful and a lot of blood came out.
I'm sure it was very painful, because that is NOT a hood piercing: YOU HAVE HAD YOUR CLITORIS PIERCED!
Your hood is actually pierced to your clitoris. You're going to need to take that out but you should talk to the owner of the business and get your money back.
Where did you get this done?

I will try and remove it myself as i don't want to go back to the place that did it. I got it done in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland.
I was going to go to a piercing shop in Belfast tomorrow to see if they would remove it for me, as I don't want to make it worse.
