piercings for women
July 21st, 2012
So, here it is, the botched genital piercing of the day by Mystic Piercing In Crofton, Maryland. The unlucky woman who received it wrote to me:
Hey I see it's probably a centimeter too high from the hood apex (that is if I understood the location properly) I'm just wondering if it looks ok... And safely done. It's 2 day old so It is still a hoop rather than the bars I've seen on your site. Thank you very much for letting me know, of course my best friend and my fiancé Dont know how it is supposed to be, I hope to hear from you soon! Thanks,
No, sorry, you have a hood surface piercing, not a VCH piercing. What you're referring to as the "apex" is actually the edge of your hood. The apex is up underneath your hood, at the deepest natrual part of the little "one-ended tunnel."

I received a message from a woman I pierced and she wanted to know if it was normal that her jewelry often leaned to one side of her hood or the other. She sent photos. My comments are below.
This piercing looks great and these photos do a perfect job of illustrating a common phenomenon: the propensity for VCH jewelry to rest to one side or the other (depending on build and tissue tightness or thickness). Many hoods have very fine (thin) skin and are very pliable or malleable.
She described the tendency for the jewelry to rest over to her left, as in the second image. In this particular case, I noted her asymmetry, which likely contributes to this issue. In the image with the jewelry centered, I can see that the left side of her hood has a kind of "ridge" or "hill," where the right side has a sort of a "valley." It would make sense that the side with more tissue could be heavier, resulting in the tendency for the jewelry to favor that side.
