Clitoral Piercing

Clitoral PiercingClitoral piercing is a form of female genital piercing. It is a very rare piercing and it depends a lot on person’s individual anatomy. Do not confuse this piercing with more common clitoral hood piercings, such as VCH (vertical clitoral hood piercing). Unlike VCH, clitoral piercing goes through clitoris itself. It is a more complicated and serious form of body modification. However, nothing prevents you from getting this type of piercing if you want it and if you are anatomically suited for it.

Placement and Difference to Other Piercings

One of the most important things to know about clitoral piercing is that it’s a piercing done on clitoris itself. It may seem obvious: yes, clitoral piercing is a piercing done on clitoris. However, the situation is not as simple as it sounds. There are many common piercings done in the same area so it’s important to understand the difference between them and clitoral piercing.

The most common piercings done on this body part are clitoral hood piercings, such as VCH (vertical clitoral hood piercing) and HCH (horizontal clitoral hood piercing). These piercings are done in the same area as clitoral piercing, but they pierce a different type of tissue. Namely, VCH and HCH pierce only the thin clitoral hood and do not go through clitoris itself.

These piercings are done much quicker and they are less complicated than a clitoral piercing. They are also much more common than a clitoral piercing. In fact, when one talks about “clitoral piercing”, chances are that they mean on clitoral hood piercing.

Clitoral piercings are rarer, but they exist and can be done if a person is anatomically suited for it. Keep in mind that most women are not suited for this type of piercing because their clitoris is fully covered by the hood. To be a good candidate for clitoral piercing, you need to have a large enough clitoris with a protruding head and your clitoral hood has to be loose enough to accommodate jewelry.

If in doubt, consult your piercer to see if you are a good candidate for clitoral piercing. It’s important to choose a piercer who know what they’re doing. Keep in mind that this is a rare piercing so it’s not something your average piercer will know about.

Possible Risks

One of the reasons why clitoral piercing is rarely performed is because of the risks. There is a significant danger of nerve damage if the procedure is not done right. Clitoris is full of nerves and very sensitive, so it’s easy to damage it if the piercer does not know what they doing.

If nerve damage occurs, it can not only pose a health problem but may lead to problems when it comes to sexual stimulation. Some women will become desensitized in this area, which will have consequences for her sexual enjoyment. On the other hand, a woman may become overly sensitive, which is very distracting.

For these reasons, it’s very important to understand the risk and to find a truly experienced, reliable piercer. It’s vital that you find someone who is knowledgeable in this exact type of piercing. This is the only way to go if you wish to have such a rare piercing done right.

Being over-sensitive is one of the common ways to describe a clitoral piercing, even if it’s done right. However, if done right, this added sensitivity may be beneficial, especially for women who usually have a problem to reach orgasm or to experience sexual pleasure.

Keep in mind that clitoral piercing can be very sexually stimulating, which is one of the reasons why women decide to have it done.

Procedure and Aftercare

You need to do some research before you get this piercing done. Inform yourself about all the aspects of the procedure and learn everything you can about this piercing. The next step is to find a truly experienced piercer who can get it done. This is the most crucial step. Don’t rush into it. Research piercers and make sure to find a truly experienced one.

Once you have found your piercer, get a consultation. It’s very important to know if you are anatomically suited for this type of piercing. If yes, take some time to discuss the best placement and ask your chosen piercer to explain the whole procedure.

During the procedure, your piercer will have to place clamps on your clitoris. This can be uncomfortable but it shouldn’t be too painful to endure. After clamping and agreeing on the placement, the piercer will use a special piercing needle to create a hole.

When it comes to pain, there is no doubt that his type of piercing is uncomfortable to perform and it proves to be intense for many people. However, the pierced area itself is not so huge so the procedure itself is relatively quick. More than the initial pain one needs to be careful about pain and sensitivity in the following days.

Since this is a very sensitive piercing you should take extra care in the first days and weeks after getting it done. As the piercing heals you will experience less and less discomfort, but it’s vital to perform aftercare instructions carefully. You need to clean your new piercing at least two times per day, using a saline solution. Since it’s located at a very sensitive area you may need to clean it more than twice per day. Make sure to ask about all of these things and to request detailed aftercare instructions from your piercer.


Since clitoris is a very sensitive body part, the jewelry worn has to be smooth enough not to pose discomfort. Keep in mind that one of the main reasons to get clitoral piercing is to increase sensitivity and to enjoy sex more, so your jewelry should accommodate that.

Typical jewelry pieces for clitoral piercings are circular barbells and Captive Bead Rings. However, depending on the placement and anatomy you may be able to wear different jewelry types, such as straight barbells or curved barbells.

The most common jewelry size is 16 gauge. This is a gauge most commonly used to perform this type of piercing.

Horns on Humans? Body Modification Implants offers this and more!



Anyone can get it done, and it’s changing the appearance of man and woman kind! It’s becoming more and more popular as we try to assert our individuality from one another! BODY MODIFICATION IMPLANTS ( In body modification, an implant is a device placed under the human skin for decorative purposes. Such implants may be subdermal or transdermal. In the context of body modification, some may consider injections of silicone and other substances a type of implant as well) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. There are several types of implants the ones we are talking about today are SUB-DERMAL. Sub-Dermal Implants are objects placed in a pocket completely under the skin as a form of Body Art.



A friend's implants.The implant is a foreign object usually made from Teflon or Silicone. However in theory any biocompatible material can be used, such as steel, titanium, and alloys of the two. You could also use synthetic material such as teflon, silicone, and nylon. In some cases even coral has been used, although organic materials that can break down in the body are generally avoided.

As with the “horned” man pictured above these implants can be stretched slowly and over time. To do so you start with a normal implant and after it has healed you repeatedly reimplant slightly larger objects until desired size is reached. This can take time and must be done gradually to prevent severe scarring both internally and externally if the implant rips through the skin.

Subdermal implants are usually implanted using a pseudo-surgical technique, which basically consist of using a scalpel to make a single incision and then a dermal separator that slides under the skin like a small spatula to create a pocket for insertion of the implant. Once the object is implanted it only takes a few sutures to close it, or suture tape even. This procedure can be done by either a Body Modification Specialist or a Medical Professional, just make sure you only let someone work on you who has experience and is a professional!

While  Subdermal Implants is a basic procedure there are always risk associated in these situations!

Some risk of dermal implants include:
* Infection
* Tissue Resorption
* Implant Surface Contamination
* Implant Biocompatibility
* Nerve and Muscle Pressure
* Allergies
* Migration
* Implant Rejection
* Implant Subdermal Shifting

While most of these risk  are unusual and rarely happen, a few are common. Migration for instance is to be expected, however it can be minimized with proper care. By using a pressure bandage for a few days and not sleeping om the implant you can greatly reduce the risk of suffering major migration, but may still experience a slight migration. As far as healing goes it’s generally worry free, as long as you take care and maintain a healthy immune system  you just need to eat healthy and rest.

Personally this type of Body Modification has a very appealing side, it gives you the opportunity to change your appearance or accentuate certain parts of your body! While maybe not for everyone it is definitely becoming more mainstream!

Flesh Suspension, Body Piercing, & Body Modification

A tisket a tasket, 4 bricks in the basketA relatively limited Art related to the Body Piercing industry is on its way to becoming much more popular and possibly even “main stream” in the near future. It is “Suspension”. This is accomplished when several body piercings are made in the body using Fish Hooks. Yes! we really do use Stainless Steel Fish Hooks with the barb ground down.

Do not go and pick up just any fish hook as they need to be the correct gauge to hold the weight of a human body, and they need to be Stainless Steel. We are considering adding them to our line in the near future if there is enough requests for them. There are only 2 particular hooks that are being used, and I think those fishing tackle companies probably just think that there has been a real population boom in the large Salmon :-) .

When all the piercings are complete and hooks inserted into the proper locations, then you are attached to ropes or cables that go to several different pulley’s which are used to lift you and “Suspend” you by these hooks. Sounds daring huh? Then later you can insert regular body jewelry to the piercings if you like, you do not keep the hooks in.
In a San Jose tattoo parlor, Mr Falkner who is considered the “Father of Modern Suspension,” had a class teaching just this. He took 15 different people from all lifestyles which varied from a lawyer from San Diego, an IT guy from Silicon Valley, two journalists from Mexico City, a state employee from Nebraska and a truck driver from Pennsylvania. In these classes they learned how to pierce skin, rig pulleys and clean wounds. On the final day after class they got the chance to practice their new skills on each other.
