Do not make the mistake of assuming that just because a piercer hangs out a shingle and has a license or other certificate(s) posted on their wall, that they know how to do nipple piercings. Unfortunately, many piercers lack sufficient training. They are frequently unaware of how to place nipple piercings optimally—or even close to correctly. Often they are incapable of selecting appropriate jewelry for your safety, comfort, and ability to heal successfully.
As an expert on the subject, (I specialize exclusively in nipple and genital piercings) and one who offers professional piercing problem consultations, I have bad news: many of the consults I do relate to improperly placed nipple piercings that must often be abandoned.
