Very Shallow VCH Surface Piercing with Dangerously Long Jewelry (with photos)

A woman wrote to me:

I got this yesterday. It doesn't look like the other piercings.

Very shallow VCH surface piercing with "inverted-V" marked

My reply:

I'm afraid you have been given a very shallow hood surface piercing. You really should try to get your money back and you should take the jewelry out. It is definitely NOT safe to have such a small amount of skin pierced, especially with such a long bar. Even if you try to heal it, you're likely to find your body treats it as a splinter and ejects it. I would NOT trust the same piercer to redo it. Its abundantly clear that tea or she had absolutely no idea what to do or where to place a VCH piercing.

This page of my site clearly explains how the jewelry  should go underneath your hood:

Where are you located? Perhaps I can suggest a competent professional in your area?
I marked your photo with what I call the "Inverted-V" of the hood. The jewelry should be coming out from underneath there….

The photo below shows proper placement for the VCH piercing and jewelry that fits well.

VCH Surface Piercing of the Day

I received a message from a woman who suspected her VCH piercing wasn't properly placed as she was not experiencing any enhancements from it.

She wrote:
VCH Piercing that looks normalCould you have a look at the photos of my VCH piercing?  I had it done a few months ago and while it hasn't caused me any bother, it hasn't had quite the "wow" factor I was expecting!  If you think it is situated correctly could you recommend jewellery for it? 

I live in Ireland so I travelling to one of your recommended piercers wasn't an option!

I'd really appreciate your opinion



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?
