The Kuno Piercing is a male genital piercing done on the foreskin. It is a relatively simple and painless procedure and it makes for a very unique piercing. Only men who are not circumcised can get a Kuno piercing.
Kuno piercing is not just a simple foreskin piercing. It is done on the precise spot on the foreskin, just under the end of the foreskin near the penis head. Since the hole is made on this spot, and due to the position of the jewelry, this piercing resembles a Prince Albert piercing, but only from afar.
Almost any man who is not circumcised can get a Kuno piercing. The procedure itself is quick and doesn’t hurt much, so even those who are not fans of complex piercings can get this one. If the idea of a penis piercing scares you, consider a foreskin piercing instead. You may also use it as an introduction to other, more complex genital piercings. Not to mention that jewelry looks really nice and it draws attention to your penis.
The Kuno piercing is typically made on the part of the foreskin just under the penis head. The piercing is made in such a way that the jewelry enters through the foreskin and exits through the open end of the foreskin. This way, only one hole is needed to have this piercing, since the piercing uses the natural opening in the foreskin as the exit hole.
The Kuno piercing typically doesn’t lead to complications, but you need to be careful. The piercing should be done deeply enough so it won’t get rejected. You should also follow the aftercare instructions carefully. Just because this is not a complex piercing doesn’t mean you should forget about proper aftercare!
There are many jewelry types suitable for Kuno piercing. Captive Bead Rings and other similar rings are among the most common jewelry types used for this piercing. They are simple yet elegant, and they fit this piercing perfectly. D Rings are particularly good because they sit well against the skin and they are very comfortable to wear.
Another good choice are circular barbells. They are good because their shape allows them to move freely inside your piercing.
In case your new piercing is very sensitive, it’s best to wear soft jewelry that is not made of metal. Keep in mind that your chosen material has to be suitable for new piercings.
- In order to keep your Kuno piercing clean, make sure to keep the genital area cool and dry.
- Don’t wear tight underwear that might hurt the piercing by rubbing against it.
- The healing time of this piercing is between 2 and 12 weeks.
- After the piercing is done, you should abstain from strenuous sexual activity that might tear the piercing.
- If you notice any sign of infection, act immediately. You don’t want the infection to spread to the urinary tract.
- The jewelry used should be of large enough gauge to prevent piercing migration and rejection.
