Nipple Piercing Placement Tip: Natural Creases

This is some feedback I received from a piercer who attended a piercing class/demonstration I did at the BMXnet Conference in Essen, Germany in September of 2016. I'm so delighted to see that my information proved useful and that she has bettered her piercing skills as a result!

 

This is probably more of a tip for piercers than piercees, but it could also help you to understand whether your piercer is doing a good job in establishing placement for YOUR piercings by working with the natural creases of your anatomy. If you are about to get pierced and your piercer has not paid attention to this critical but subtle aspect of your anatomy, then it isn't too late to back out! Seriously!

 

 

Dear Elayne,

 

I'm just writing to let you know that I found your "natural crease" nipple piercing technique really, really helpful and it's made performing male nipple piercings massively easier for me, for the client and the end results are so much better. 

Male Nipple Piercing Problem

I got a message from a man who had both his nipples pierced, and he suspected something was not right with one of them:

Shallow, rejecting male nipple piercing

Hello! I recently got both nipples pierced. My right one looks very good, but my left one doesn't look like it has pierced enough tissue, and as such, is making me very nervous. They have been in for a little over a week at this point, there is no pain, and minor crusting. Does it appear to be ok? Or should I remove it, let it heal, and then have it redone?

Thanks!


My reply:

Unfortunately, that piercing is far too close to the surface to be viable. If you don't remove it, I am sure that it will reject completely, which can leave you with a split scar.

I think you should get your money back--that was NOT properly pierced. I would suggest you wait at least 4 weeks before repiercing, and make sure the tissue feels pliable. If it feels dense or tight, I would continue to wait. You may want to try a scar reduction product to facilitate the healing after the wound seals over.

I would strongly advise you visit a more competent professional to redo it; I would not trust the individual who performed the original piercing.

If you would like to have me evaluate the other side, feel free to send another photo.
