Many fans of piercings and other body modifications know the importance of body jewelry. After all, this is what makes a piercing so attractive. But that’s not all. Good body jewelry is more than a simple ornament. Many times it’s a functional part of your piercing. Jewelry is what prevents the piercing from closing and it often helps it stay healthy and safe. Out of all body jewelry styles, Captive Bead Rings are among the most popular ones. But it is not always possible to wear these rings and sometimes you just wish to change a style. This is why it’s so important to find a Captive Bead alternative.
Daith piercing was first performed in 1992. It was created by piercer Erik Dakota and his client, who named the piercing “da’at” (“knowledge” in Hebrew). It was popularized in Fakir Musafar’s Body Play Magazine and it became one of the most unique ear piercing types.
Daith is characterized by its placement. Since the pierced area is small, there are not many variations of the placement. It has to be done on the innermost cartilage fold, right above the ear canal.
While it’s not a highly complex piercing, Daith poses some challenge and a lot of skill … read more
Princess Albertina is a somewhat rare female genital piercing, but it offers one big advantage: it can help a woman experience urethral pleasure without the use of a toy. Instead, the piercing’s jewelry serves as a tiny urethral toy made for perfect arousal. This is a great way to try urethral stimulation without hassle!
Women who are intrigued by urethral stimulation are often scared to try it. While female urethral stimulation is very rewarding, it is still a somewhat unknown field. It is not something general public knows much about. This is why many women who find urethral stimulation fascinating and arousing face problems about learning how to perform urethral play safety and where to find female urethral toys.
Scrotal piercing is a genital piercing done anywhere on the scrotum. However, it is important to note that all scrotal piercings only affect the skin and not the tissue underneath. As such, scrotal piercings are relatively easy to perform and are not considered complex piercings. One of the most defining feature of any scrotal piercing is that it’s done on the surface and does not go through the tissue itself. In other words, scrotal piercings are surface piercings. Body modifications that go through the whole tissue of the scrotum (typically front to back) are called transscrotal procedures.
If you wish to have a piercing on your scrotum but do not want to go through an extreme modification, then a simple surface scrotal piercing (or two!) will do. It is also important to note here that one scrotal piercing is … read more
Pubic piercing is a surface piercing performed on the pubic mound, right above the penis. It is a relatively rare piercing even though it’s not a complicated one, so there are men who choose to get it.

In this sense, it is possible to talk about male pubic piercing or pubic piercing for men.
This piercing doesn’t have a specific colloquial name, but it is analogous to Christina piercing in women.
This is a very interesting spot for a piercing because … read more
