Fourchette Piercing

Fourchette Piercing A Fourchette piercing is a form of female genital piercing and it’s not very common because not many women have anatomy suitable for it. This piercing is done at the rear rim of the vulva, near perineum. It will look like the jewelry is located “under” the vaginal opening.

To be able to get this piercing, you will need to have a pinchable flap of skin in this area. Many women don’t, so they are unable to get this type of piercing. This is why Fourchette is not such a common piercing type. However, those women who do have a suitable anatomy and can get Fourchette piercing will be glad to know that the procedure is pretty easy to perform.

The male equivalent of Fourchette piercing is Guiche piercing (done under the testicles at the perineum).

Getting Fourchette Piercing

It’s important to understand that you need to have anatomy suitable for this piercing or else you won’t be able to have it. To find out if your anatomy is suitable, consult an experienced piercer. It’s very important to find a knowledgeable person who is familiar with this type of piercing. Since Fourchette is relatively rare, there are many piercers who don’t know enough about it.

If your anatomy is suitable for a Fourchette piercing, it’s vital to go to an experienced piercer who knows how to perform this type of piercing. While Fourchette piercing is relatively easy to perform, it requires a reliable and experienced piercer. Seek more than a generally experienced piercer – find someone who knows how to perform this type of piercing specifically.

When performing the piercing, it’s important not to go into the vaginal tissue so it’s vital for the piercer to pierce the flap of skin and not vagina itself. Other than this, the procedure is straightforward and relatively quick. An experienced piercer can perform it with ease.

To make your Fourchette piercing heal faster, make sure to do all the recommended aftercare and to clean it regularly. It will take about 6 to 12 weeks for your piercing to heal.

Jewelry

The jewelry is inserted from the bottom of the vaginal opening and it rests over the perineum. Fourchette piercing is usually done in 10 or 12 gauge.

Since this is not a common piercing, there are usually no jewelry made specifically for Fourchette. This is why you need to use body jewelry made for other piercing types. What works the best are plain jewelry pieces made for many different piercings.

The best jewelry types for Fourchette piercing are captive bead rings and curved barbells. It’s best to use smooth, plain jewelry without much decoration. Any decoration can get caught on the underwear and cause discomfort. This is why plain jewelry pieces work the best.

Popular Piercings and Jewelry Types

Piercing is a popular form of body modification and all enthusiast who love various piercing styles can enjoy many different types of jewelry. The choice of jewelry is often a very personal one. In a way, it will depend on the body part and the type of piercing you have. For example, certain piercing types require straight barbells as the basic form of jewelry while others require curved barbells, captive bead rings, flesh tunnels, etc. Generally speaking, though, most piercings can use many different types of body jewelry, so it’s often the question of one’s personal preferences and style.

Your body jewelry should suit you and make you express yourself in the best possible way. It should show who you are and it should be something you truly like and feel comfortable with. Many people have one style they stick to, while others like to experiment. Some people prefer simple body jewelry types while others go for more elaborate, complex designs. There is no right or wrong way to go here.

There are some popular piercing types and body parts many people choose to pierce, and these piercings often require a certain type of jewelry. Within these types, you are free to choose designs you like the most.

Earlobe

Earlobe piercing is the most common body piercing. It’s so common and socially accepted that it’s often not even considered body piercing in “true” sense. There are many types of earrings people like to wear in their earlobes, and the choice of designs and materials is endless. Rings, dangling jewelry types and other forms are popular.

Special type of earlobe piercing is a stretched earlobe piercing, erroneously known as “gauge”. These piercings are stretched to a larger size so a different type of jewelry can be worn in the stretched hole, such as ear plug, earlet, flesh tunnel, tusk, spiral, and others. These jewelry types are often made of organic materials and they can be very effective. The “trick” when choosing jewelry for stretched piercing is to always choose the correct gauge. Wrong size can put a pressure on your piercing and tear your earlobe, which can lead to infections and other problems. Therefore, before choosing a design you like, you need to make sure the jewelry is of a correct gauge and also made of a body-safe material you can wear safely.

Ear Cartilage

Various types of ear cartilage piercings are also popular. These piercings are suitable for many different jewelry types, so you can choose between rings or barbells, depending on your style. People who have multiple cartilage piercings often like to connect them with the same jewelry piece. The most popular form of this is the industrial piercing, usually connected by a long straight barbell, but there are other possibilities. Some people use spiraled barbells or chains to connect their cartilage piercings. Many jewelry types also incorporate dangling gems or pendants.

Navel

Navel piercing is one of the most popular forms of piercings. Jewelry used for this type of piercing is often known as “belly rings” or “navel rings”, even though the most popular jewelry type for this type of piercing is not a ring but a curved barbell. There are many curved barbell designs to choose from, such as simple surgical steel barbells with spherical balls or more elaborate designs with pendants, gems and other ornaments.

Another popular type of jewelry for this type of piercing is the actual ring. Captive bead rings are popular, but their downside is that they can get caught on clothing. Therefore, they are recommended only for fully healed piercings.

Nose

Certain types of nose piercings are very common. Nostril piercing, for example, is among the most popular forms of piercing. It is a relatively simple piercing and jewelry types used for this piercing are simple but very effective. Many people choose simple studs and nose screws with bright gems on top for nostril piercings. A good thing about this type of piercing is that it can be very understated and easy to hide for work and other occasions: all you need to do is to choose a flesh-colored nose plug or stud. Some people prefer to wear nose rings instead of studs and screws.

Another popular type of nose piercing is septum piercing. It is a bit more complex type of piercing but it’s very effective. There are many different jewelry designs suitable for this type of piercing, such as rings and curved barbells. Depending on the style, a septum piercing jewelry can be simple or bold and more pronounced.

Eyebrow

Another popular piercing location is the eyebrow. Eyebrow piercing can look very beautiful and effective, but the downside is that eyebrow piercing tends to be very sensitive. Remember, eyebrow piercing is basically a surface piercing, which means there’s a relatively high risk of migration and rejection.

Also, this type of piercing has a high risk of becoming infected. For this reason, it’s important to choose jewelry carefully and with some consideration. Make sure to pick a body safe jewelry material and a jewelry suitable to be worn in an eyebrow piercing without a problem. Simple barbells look effective and they don’t pose much problems. Rings are another popular choice but you need to be careful not to make them caught on the clothing or hair.

Lips and Tongue

Many people choose to get their lips and tongue pierced. These piercings are very common but it’s important to be careful because of the sensitive tissue. Also, another risk associated with this type of piercings come from the fact lips and tongue regularly come in contact with food, so it’s another thing to keep in mind.

Generally speaking, lip piercings usually use labrets. This is a perfect jewelry type for this form of piercing. It’s effective but relatively simple and it doesn’t interfere with eating or brushing your teeth. However, labrets are not the only jewelry type used for lip piercings; many people prefer to use rings and other jewelry types.

Tongue piercing is more complex and the healing time is longer, so it requires special attention. Jewelry used for tongue piercing must be made of high-quality, body safe materials because it comes in contact with sensitive tissue.

Genital Piercing

While not as common as other type of body piercings, genital piercing has many proponents. Both men and women choose different types of genital piercings and jewelry types. As a general rule, jewelry worn in a genital piercing must be made of a high quality, body-safe material. Most jewelry types are relatively simple in design and have a smooth surface so they don’t pose a problem while walking or sitting. One advantage of genital piercing is that it can be used to enhance sexual pleasure for both partners.

Piercing Erotica

While some people get very embarrassed or do not want to talk about their sexual endeavors, others are very open and willing to share their likes and dislikes as far as sexual desires. Many people who are into the BDSM scene have body modifications or piercings to suit their needs. These people love to incorporate their piercings or modifications into their sexual pleasures.

            The nipple piercing can be very sexy and arousing just by the sight of the shiny metal glimmering against the skin. But what if the nipple piercings were part of a bondage session? This would not only stimulate the person with the piercings but also gets the partner involved thus arousing them as well. To incorporate nipple piercings into bondage one could use either light weight chains or rope, in already completely healed piercings. Putting the chains or rope onto the nipple rings and then using them as a leash for a “slave” is a great way to get the “master’s” heart pumping. Another way the nipple rings can be used during bondage, taking the chains thru the rings, crossing the chain over the stomach and attaching them at waste behind the back, using handcuffs to attach the chains to the wrist. Every time they move their arms it will pull the nipple rings, stimulating the nipples.
            Some individuals find that attaching their healed genital piercings to their healed nipple piercings to be very satisfying. For instants, a female may take her labia piercings and nipple piercings and attach them with a chain, so that every time she makes a move it is stimulates both of those areas. A male may attach either his Prince Albert or cock ring to the nipples. Not only does attaching the nipple and genital rings stimulate, but it can also be very visually arousing to the parties involved. Bondage can be very fun all in its own but adding in the body modifications can push the sexual desires to new limits.
            Part of the reason why BDSM is so popular and fun is because people are always trying new things and love to add their body modifications into the mix. It also tends to draw the couples closer together. Putting trust into someone whether it is to tie you up, play pierce, allow them to make you a slave, or anything else involved in BDSM, makes the relationship bond closer. While practicing some of this fun piercing bondage erotica, make sure you completely trust the other person involved and remember safety first.

Personal Area Piercings are for Pleasure

English: From top to bottom: a horizontal clit...Body Piercing is done on just about every part of your body. It’s not just the navel, or nose anymore. Genital Piercing has become much more popular then you may realize. I know some people will find this hard to believe. A  Pun intended :-) however it is a fact.

The first response of many people is “why would anyone want to do that to themselves?” The answer usually is quiet simply “for the pleasure”.

The pain associated with the different genital piercings is not as bad as you may think. The reason for this is that you are piercing through nerves that are used to sensing pleasure, and are not as receptive to pain. The major reason for most of the genital piercings done is for pleasure, so a lot of pain would defeat the whole purpose. In fact if you are looking for pain, genital piercing is not the right place to look.

Of course there are risks with these piercings just as there are with any piercing, and just about everything else that we do in life. Some of the risks are serious on a couple of the piercings, such as the Ampallang. If that one is done incorrectly you can be rendered impotent very easily. However something else to think about is that Infection is the number one side effect of a piercing and something that can cause many very serious problems due to complications. Due to the increased blood flow the genital piercings usually heal faster then other piercings. For instance, a Prince Albert Piercing can heal in 4 to 6 weeks, however a navel piercing may take up to 1 year to heal. That leaves a much larger window of time to have something go wrong, or to catch a disease that you would rather not have.

The most common cause of a “piercing gone wrong” is carelessness, ignorance, and utter disregard for another persons well being. Take the time to make sure that you know your Piercer, and that he or she is a true “Professional” in every sense of the word.

Unfortunately many studios are still operating without any autoclave and thus can not sterilize anything. Many “piercers” are not trained or licensed at all. There is not a lot of watchdog or enforcement yet in our industry the way that there is in the standard medical industry. And really even the medical profession could be better policed as well. So make sure that you watch your but for yourself, or your but may be all that you have left down there. :-)

Some of the male genital piercings are; Prince Albert ( being the most common ), Reverse Price Albert, Frenum, Dydoe, Guiche, and the Ampallang ( which is the most dangerous ).

In women, the genital piercings include; Vertical Clitoral Hood ( the most popular for females), Horizontal Clitoral Hood, Inner Labia, Outer Labia, and Triangle piercing to name a few. There are several more for both but these are some of the more common ones.

They make some very interesting pieces of jewelry for genital piercings, such as a Double Captive Curved Barbell for a Prince Albert Piercing, or a Double Bezel Set Flower for a Vertical Clitoris Piercing, so if you are looking to dress up the family Jewels or jewelry box make sure you go to a Reputable Experienced Professional Piercer. These piercings can make a big difference in you life, but it is up to you as to whether it is for the better or for the worse.
