Here's an exchange I had with a woman who suspected right away that there was something wrong with her Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) piercing:
I just had a HCH piercing done this afternoon, but 'm freaking out and need some help.... It's swollen a bit and all the time I check it, is still bleeding! Didn`t have any pain after getting it done, just felt a little unconfortable when I walked up to the supermarket few hours later. But is all about this bleeding that seems no to stop! Am so worried and thinking of taking it of... Please would love if you could give me an advice! Thanks ever so much!

My husband found this image (and I'd be very happy to credit whoever is responsible, if anyone can tell me!) and I just had to post it here.

I received a message with some photos from a woman who had received a Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) piercing, but she was disappointed with it. She sought the piercing to enhance her sexual pleasure, and she was not experiencing any added enjoyment or sensations. I saw the photo, and this was my comment:

I received a message from a woman who needed advice about her hood piercing:
I removed my HCH piercing when I was pregnant with my 3 year old. I couldn't get the piercing in after I had the baby. About a month ago my husband and I decided to try again. We used his cock piercing ring which was a bigger gauge with a bigger ball because we were unable to place the ball on my ring. Within 3 days I could barely walk due to the piercing. I am not sure if the gauge was too big on his ring for my piercing or we didn't clean everything properly. I am healed now and I want to put the piercing in again. What is the proper way to clean the ring and what is the best size? Or is there a trick to those pesky closing balls?
Thanks in advance for your help!
Inserting an even larger size after a piercing has been out is a recipe for problems. So is inserting jewelry that has not been sterilized in an autoclave.
Is there a reason you don't want to get help from a professional piercer? We have tools called insertion tapers that allow us to gently insert jewelry. There is a bit of a trick to getting the balls in, and most piercers are very adept at it!
This is a brief introduction to insertion tapers from my book:

Below is an exchange with a woman who wanted input on her HCH piercing.
After I saw the image I commented:
Yeah, that looks mighty angry. Are you confident that the jewelry is high quality? Was the piercer able to insert and close the ring without using any tools?
What product are you using to clean? Are you following the instructions as explained here? http://piercingbible.com/piercing-care
What is your recipe for the salt water, and are you rinsing it well when you're done?
If yes to all of the above, then I think you should consider a visit to the doctor.

I received a message from a woman inquiring about a genital piercing:
I was on a piercing forum and a girl made a post about a "high HCH" piercing. She didn't really go into detail, just mentioned that she has it. While I sent her a message for more info, I figured that if anyone could shed light on the subject, it would be you. I can't find any pictures or info on the piercing aside from people saying that they have it. I was wondering what makes a high HCH different from a regular HCH piercing? How is the procedure different and would it be a viable piercing since I already have a VCH?
I would appreciate any info that you can give me and I hope you come back to Philly to pierce soon since i missed you last time!

I just got back from my piercing visit at Infinite Body Piercing in Philadelphia. It was absolutely amazing! I had SO much fun. The studio is incredibly well-run, well-stocked, and highly professional. Every member of the staff there pitched in and worked hard to make sure that my guest piercing visit ran seamlessly and smoothly. They were fantastic.
I can't wait to go back there again. I know I will, so if you're interested in getting pierced the next time I come to Philly, please sign up for my free newsletter on the home page of my site in the box on the left lower corner. Then you'll automatically be notified when I travel.
I pierced non-stop for 4 full days and did 67 piercings on people from 12 different states including NY, MA, WI, NJ, CT, VA, OH, RI, DE, MD, IN, and of course, PA. I had so much fun!
I have already received some great feedback from my clients there. I guess I proved to be an inspiration to this gal:
