Prince Albert

Genital Play Piercing vs. Permanent Piercings with Body Jewelry

I recently received a very interesting piercing question from a piercer who is unsure of what to do when it becomes clear that a client is getting genital piercings for the experience of being pierced, and who does not really want to wear jewelry:

I have a 74-year-old gentleman who early last week came in and requested 4 8 gauge frenum piercings and an 8 gauge prince albert. Anatomy was suitable for the frenums but not quite for the P.A. so I made him aware and performed that piercing at a 10 gauge instead.

Everything was well and good, he was a more than satisfied client and went on his way. 3 days later he came in again and had taken them all out and wanted them all performed again. The P.A. was easily tapered back open and was not in need of a repierce. To redo the Frenums I just offset them a safe distance from the previous spots and re pierced them. The fact that he had had the procedure performed and then taken them out and had them redone within 3 days raised a few questions in my mind but i decided that I had no reason to not believe him when he said that he had just gotten frustrated with them so he took them out and realized doing so was a mistake.

Today, however, the gentleman came in to the shop again (3 days after the re-pierce, 6 days after the initial procedure) and had taken them all out again and wanted them re pierced yet again.

Bad News About Over-Stretched Prince Albert Piercing

I received this message from a piercee who was experiencing problems with his Prince Albert piercing:

Hi Elayne,

Finally I found someone who might have an answer. I got a PA about 3 years ago now. All went well and I was able to size up to an 8mm / 0 gauge after about 2 1/2 years. I wore the 8mm 24/7 for about 3 months when I noticed there was only about 5mm of skin between the piercing and the urethra.

I've taken the ring out completely now to see if the hole will close down a bit but its still much the same size. I dont want to wear a smaller ring in case the skin breaks thru completley. Any ideas? Should I leave it out for longer? It's been out for 8 months now. Would I be right in thinking that a smaller ring, although not heavy, would prevent any kind of healing?
Thanks S.

Trauma from Sex: Prince Abert

I received a message from a man who has had his Prince Albert piercing for years, and it suddenly started bleeding, but the reason was not hard to figure out:

Hi,  

I have had PA for many years with no issues and much enjoyment and pleasure  Recently started anew relationship in whichthe sex is really rough. This morning I noticed a slight blood discharge  from the piercing.  I'm concerned and am curious of what is going on and what should be done.

Successful Piercing Visit to Philadelphia!

I recently returned home following a wonderful trip to Philadelphia. I pierced for 6 days at Infinite Body Piercing. That was my longest piercing trip to date. But last time demand was so high, I was unable to set appointments for everyone who was interested, so I decided to work a few extra days.

Over those 6 days I did 118 piercings on 87 clients! They came from 12 different states (as far away as Arizona and Texas!) specifically to be pierced by me. I also had some clients come down from Ontario, Canada. What an honor that people trust me so much that they are willing to travel such distances to be pierced by me!

As usual, most of my clients came in for genital piercings. I did 55 vertical clitoral hood (VCH) piercings, and 24 triangle piercings, among others. I also did a few apadravyas, scrotum piercings, frenum piercings, and Prince Albert piercings for the guys. Additionally, I did a few nostril piercings, eyebrow piercings, and also a navel piercing, a tongue piercing, and a philtrum (upper lip center) piercing.

While I was there I got to enjoy some Thai and Indian food (two of my favorite cuisines that I can't get at home). An extra special treat was visiting an Ethiopian restaurant, as I love that food, and definitely cannot get any of that in Mexico where I live!

On my day off, I visited the Eastern State Penitentiary, which was really fascinating.

New INTERVIEW Elayne Angel on The Fetish Show

If you would like to listen to a new interview with me, you can hear it here.

Me and my friends Dirk and Princess Zoe at The Fetish Show had a great time recording it recently. We talk about all sorts of piercings and more.

Be aware that it is fetish show, and not only about piercing. So if you're into piercing, but not otherwise open minded, then you might not appreciate the show.

If you have an open mind, then check it out!

Apaddravya Piercing Placement

I received a message from a reader of The Piercing Bible who wanted me to evaluate the placement of his apadravya piercing:


Apadravya Piercing-View from the TopHello, I recently purchased a copy of The Piercing Bible and I have to say that you have done an amazing job with it. I have read it from cover to cover and it has helped me immensely in choosing what kid of modifications I want, and how I want them done. Also, your body is an amazing work of art.

I'm way off topic but I felt like that had to be said. I recently had an apadravya done to celebrate my 18th birthday. I was wondering I could send you a picture and get your opinion on it. I would greatly appreciate it. Here are pictures of my piercing. I can't think you enough for looking at these for me. I have to request that you be as critical as possible.

The extra long bar was put in for healing purposes. I am having a smaller bar put in in a week. It will fit snug on the top and bottom like it's supposed to. Thank you for your time.

Apadravya Piercing-View from the Front

My reply:

Ampallang (Iron Cross) Piercing

Below is my exchange with a piercee who received an iron cross (apadravya + ampallang) piercing:

I recently got an ampallang piercing to complete a magic cross. I think the placement is good and that the piecer did a good job. But I would like that to be evaluated.

Iron Cross
Also, I have an ileostomy. Though the bag is very clean, it can bump up against the side of the piercing. I have been salt soaking 4 times a day (every time I empty my bag) and washing with antibacterial gel soap twice a day. The piercing, now about a week old, has stopped bleeding.  I kept this routine up for about a month on my apadravya which had the same problem and healed perfectly. I cleared this routine with a doctor before each piercing. My question is does an ampallang have a longer, shorter or the same healing time as an apadravya. My apadravya bled for a week. But the ampallang only bled for a few hour.

I can send pictures if that would help you evaluate things. Thanks, M.

My reply:

Dear M.,
If the ampallang passes through your urethra, then it would be expected to take about the same amount of time to heal as the apadravya. If your ampallang does not pass through your urethra, then it could be expected to take longer to heal than the apadravya. They are both subject to bleeding when new, but the apadravya is apt to bleed more than the ampallang, so all of that sounds normal.

You just need to watch for trauma from the jewelry hitting the bag, as impact can delay healing and cause problems like excess scar tissue formation.

I hope you heal well and enjoy!

Elayne
