I received a message from a piercer seeking advice about male genital piercings:
A client came in a few days ago and asked me if it was possible to do a vertical frenum ladder instead of a traditional one. I wasn't too sure so I told him I would research and find out for sure before I would attempt it. I know this is one thing you are very well known for and your answer would be the one I would go by. Also if any of the healing or after care is any different than a traditional frenum ladder or other possible complications please let me know all you can. Thank you so much!!
One of the important considerations is whether the tissue is pliable in the area he'd like to have pierced. You may want to start with just one piercing, rather than a ladder, to see how he heals. Also, the success of this would depend, to some extent, on his size differential between flaccid and erect states. On frenums that go in the usual direction, they can rest somewhat bunched up and close together without it causing any trauma. Then, when the piercee is erect, there is more space between the jewelry.
