This also means that nipple piercings are for everyone. That is, for all the people who are physically suited for this piercing. While most people, both men and women, can accommodate nipple piercings without a problem, keep in mind that there is a small percentage of people who are simply not suited for this piercing.
Other than that, anybody can get a nipple piercing. Do not think that you have to have a special personality for this. Also, do not think that only people with exhibitionist tendencies are those who like this piercing type. While many people with nipple piercings do like to attract attention and show their piercing, there are also many of those who don’t reveal their nipple piercings to anyone except for their intimate partners.

What if You Can’t Accommodate a Nipple Piercing?
What if you are one of the small percentage of people who can’t accommodate a nipple piercing? Do not despair. There are some choices for those who can’t wear a nipple piercing even if they want.
These people should opt for other piercing types or consult their piercers for an advice about a nipple piercing. This is not really a choice, but keep in mind that there are so many great piercing types so you can find the one you like and can accommodate without a problem.
If you like nipple piercing so much and don’t want to give up, consult your piercer. You might be able to accommodate a specific variant. This is why it’s vital to have a good piercer who can find the best placement and piercing type to accommodate your anatomy. There are some popular nipple piecing variants and you might be able to accommodate a rarer type of a nipple piercing if you can’t accommodate the most popular nipple piercing variant.
Finally, keep in mind that you might be able to get a nipple piercing even though you believe you can’t. Some people just assume they are not anatomically suited for a piercing without even checking. For example, the size of your nipple doesn’t really make a difference, most of the time. This is why both men and women can get nipple piercings without a problem.
Also, did you know that people with inverted nipples can get a nipple piercing? Sometimes, people believe they are unable to get this piercing type just because their nipples are inverted, but the truth is that many people with this nipple shape can accommodate nipple piercings and nipple jewelry without a problem. In fact, the piercing and jewelry can make your nipples stand out and prevent them to go back to their inverted state. This doesn’t always happen but it does happen to many people. Therefore, if you have inverted nipples do not simply assume that you can’t get a nipple piercing – consult your piercer. You might be pleasantly surprised.
