Ampallang Issues--Barbell Fit on Uncircumcised Penis

I received this message from a man who had read my book:

First I would like to thank you personally for writing such a great book on piercing. I have found it to be informative and a great support throughout my different piercings.

About six years ago I had a PA and an ampallang procedure done around the same time, my PA has stayed with me ever sense (currently stretched to a 2) but my ampallang had to be retired after only a few days. The problem I had is that my piercer suggested a long bar as an initial choice for jewelry and I have a lot of foreskin. The pressure was excrutiating. My lover believes it would be a fun piercing but I am not sure how or if this piercing will be possible considering my anatomy. I've also yet to see many images of uncut men with this piercing on the popular websites. Have you encountered this situation and can you shed some light on what us uncut men can do to have a successful chance with this piercing?

Sincerely yours,
E.

Double Apadravya Piercing Possible? (With Photos)

I received a message and a few photos from a gentleman who was interested in a double apadravya (he already had one):

Apadravya plus dot marked for 2nd ApadravyaI have read a lot about your expertise in the field of piercings. Attached is pic of my current apadravya with marks of where I would like to have a second apadravya. When I first talked to my piercer, she said that with that placement it might make it hard to heal as the top is in the corona and the bottom is in the shaft. Thus creating a movement difference. I saw pictures of a guy that got off centered RPAs and PAs for the purpose of eventually wearing them as an apadravya X. I was wondering if I could do something similar to get a PA/RPA in those spots for healing and stretching separately? Then when after healed from the final stretch put in a barbell. I don't think it would work well to do a shaft apadravya as it would be really close to my frenums.
Thanks for any advice or information you could provide.
R.

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.

Irritated Apadravya Piercing

I received this message today:


Irritated ApadravyaHello Elayne, I was recently cleaning my apadravya and noticed that I have what looks like a tear or some sort of injury on the head of my penis. My piercing is fairly new, I believe it is 4 months old. I don't know if this is simply because it's still fresh or if I have something more serious to deal with. I have been sexually active but I haven't done anything rough or overexerting. I have worn protection and I haven't had any pain during sex. I have included a picture of the wound. It doesn't hurt, but it is (VERY SLIGHTLY) more tender to the touch than the rest of my penis. If you could respond to this ASAP then I would greatly appreciate it. This has been worrying me a lot. Thank you very much.

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.

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
