5 Surprisingly Painless Piercings

1729pThere are some piercings that are known to be relatively painless.

Earlobe, for example, is known as probably the least painful piercings of them all.

However, there are some other piercings that are relatively painless or definitely much less painful than they look.

But let’s start with the easiest one:

Earlobe Piercing

Everyone knows this one is relatively easy to go through. Earlobe tissue is soft and not particularly thick, so it’s easy for a needle to go through. However, it’s always important to use a proper piercing needle for this procedure.

Never agree to be pierced with a gun! Guns are dangerous, unsanitary and can make the whole procedure much painful than what it’s supposed to be. Plus, no knowledgeable professional will want to use a piercing gun so if your piercer uses it, there is a good chance they are not a reliable professional. Find a studio and a good piercer who will perform this piercing properly.

Septum Piercing

When done right, nose septum piercing does not hurt much. It’s because the piercing itself doesn’t go through nose cartilage at all. Instead, the piercing is done on the thin skin just in front of the cartilage. If you pinch your nose on this spot you will feel how thin the tissue actually is.

For a septum piercing to be positioned correctly, your piercer has to go through that tissue alone. If done correctly, it doesn’t bring much pain. It is actually one of the least painful piercings out there.

However, many people say that they experienced significant pain during the procedure. The reasons is that some piercers are not experienced or knowledgeable enough to hit the right spot. If the needle goes through the cartilage or if the piercing is positioned too low, it might end up being painful. To avoid this problem, always seek an experienced piercer who knows how to perform septum piercings correctly. Chances are that it will be one of the least painful piercings you’ll get!

Tongue Piercing

It may surprise many people, but classic tongue piercings are not particularly painful. They may seem painful because tongue is thick and there is a lot of tissue for needle to go through, but fear not: it is actually one of the least painful places you can get pierced.

However, please note that this is only true for a typical central tongue piercing. Other tongue piercing types may prove to be more painful. Also, it’s important to find a knowledgeable piercer who is experienced with tongue piercings to ensure everything goes smoothly.

Bridge Piercing

Surprisingly enough, but piercing the bridge of your nose is not particularly painful. Bridge piercing, also known as Erl piercing, is not as popular as some other piercing types, but there are many people who choose to get it.

It may seem like a sensitive spot, but bridge piercings are relatively quick to perform and they don’t hurt much. They definitely look more painful than they actually are, so if you are thinking about getting this piercing, there is no need to fear pain.

Prince Albert

Now, this one is a bit different. PA is a genital piercing and as such, it is more painful than some other piercing types. At the same time, Prince Albert is surprisingly painless compared to most other piercings. It is one of the least painful genital piercings for sure, but it’s also less painful than many “regular” piercings.

The thing is that only a little bit of a very thin tissue is pierced during this procedure. Most of the piercing uses the natural hole – urethra, so all the piercer needs to perform is a slight cut on the underside of the penis. The skin on that spot is thin and the procedure is done quickly. Most men describe the pain as a pinch and claim that PA piercing was much less painful than some “ordinary” piercings, such as ear cartilage piercings or nose piercings.

In other words, if you want to have a genital piercing but you’re scared of the pain, Prince Albert may be the perfect solution for you!

Genital Piercings Made to Stimulate Erogenous Zones

coupleThere are many people who are fans of piercings but do not like genital piercings. On the other hand, there are many people who adore these types of intimate piercings.

One might wonder why someone might want to get a genital piercing, especially since these piercings are known to be painful.

While it’s true genital piercings are among the most extreme and painful piercing types, there is usually a great payoff: many of the genital piercings enhance sexual pleasure. This is a great reason to get a genital piercing: increasing arousal for both you and your partner is a great thing.

In other words, genital piercings are largely functional piercings, that is, they have a purpose beyond aesthetic function. However, this is not the only reason why someone might get a genital piercing. Some genital piercings do look good, so aesthetic is one of the main reasons to try one of these piercings.

Aesthetic or Pleasure?

You may wonder how to tell a difference between a purely aesthetic genital piercing and the one that brings pleasure. This may be an important factor when deciding which type of piercing to get. While there are not straight and universal answers that will suit everyone, it’s important to know which piercings are known to bring pleasure – and in what way.

Keep in mind: different genital piercings are made to stimulate different erogenous zones. Some will benefit the wearer’s partner only, while the others are made to increase pleasure for both partners.

Piercings and Erogenous Zones

Here are some common genital piercings and erogenous zones they are made to stimulate:

  • Penis head stimulation: Prince Albert, Reverse Prince Albert, Apadravya and Ampallang. All of these male genital piercings are great for glans stimulation and can increase pleasure for the wearer.
  • G-spot stimulation: Apadravya is the best piercing for this purpose. Other good piercings that can be used for G-spot stimulation are Prince Albert (PA) and Reverse Prince Albert. Ampallang can be pleasurable in some cases but it’s known to be too intense during vaginal stimulation.
  • Prostate stimulation (P-spot stimulation): Ampallang is known to be a great piercing for anal stimulation. It can also be used for prostate stimulation. Another good piercing for prostate stimulation is regular PA (reverse PA may also work but it may prove to be too intense for some users).
  • Clitoral Stimulation: Vertical Clitoral Hood Piercing (VCH), Triangle piercing. These two are known to enhance the pleasure for a woman. Horizontal Clitoral Hood Piercing (HCH), on the other hand, is more aesthetic than practical. True Clitoral Piercing may also enhance pleasure for some women but it’s often known as too intense for most people.
  • Added stimulation during intercourse: Some genital piercings can provide added stimulation during intercourse, even if they are not fully effective at enhancing pleasure on their own. For example, inner labia piercings can increase pleasure during initial stages of penetration for both men and women.

GUIDE – PA Piercing and Recommended Jewelry

Men who wish to get a Prince Albert piercing should not worry about the available jewelry. There are many jewelry pieces suitable for this type of piercing, even the stretched PA piercing. Largely due to the fact that the jewelry used is often multi-functional, it can be used for other jewelry types as well. It’s important to note that PA piercings are usually done at a relatively large starting size. Typically, the starting gauge is 10g, though there are some piercers who recommend starting at 8 g. These two sizes are the most common ones, so men who have this size of Prince Albert piercing can easily find great jewelry to go with it. One of the main reasons that PA piercing is never done at small sizes (16g, 14g or even 12g) is that the jewelry is too thin and can easily cut through sensitive tissue (the unpleasant and dangerous “cheese cutter effect”. This is why larger needles are used to perform this type of piercing and this is why it’s important to wear jewelry that’s thick enough so it won’t be rejected easily and it won’t hurt the tissue.

The good news is that PA jewelry is in many ways multi-functional, so you don’t have to go with any specialized Prince Albert jewelry pieces. This makes it much easier for you to get the best jewelry, regardless of the piercing size. Finding jewelry you like and that fits you is not a problem for people with PA piercing. What can be tricky, is to find jewelry that suits you best when it comes to comfort and sexual satisfaction. There are many jewelry pieces suitable for PA piercing. The most popular are curved barbells (you can get them in all sizes and they look impressive when inserted), circular barbells, captive bead rings and segment rings. Most curved barbells used for PA piercing are 7/8 of an inch in length. This jewelry style is made so that one ball of the curved barbell sits at the urethral opening, while the other is on the lower side of the penis. Curved barbells are recommended because they don’t move around during wear, so they prove to be very comfortable. However, a lot will depend on your anatomy and preference, so you may find other jewelry types more comfortable. One note about sex: while there are many men who choose PA piercing for aesthetic purposes or any other non-sexual reason, there are many who want to use their Prince Albert piercing to enhance sexual pleasure for both them and their partner. The choice of jewelry in this case is crucial, because it helps both the wearer and his partner enjoy sex more (or less, if the jewelry is not chosen wisely).

Stretching and Jewelry

Preventing rejection and the “cheese cutter effect” is also the reason why it’s not recommended to start stretching your piercing aggressively even if it’s fully healed. While it goes without saying that any stretching requires your piercing to be fully healed, a special attention should be taken in this case. Go slowly and never stretch for more than one size at a time. Wait until it’s fully healed to go to the next size. Another good news is that penis piercing stretching is done relatively easily. The tissue itself is elastic and you can even observe some form of auto-stretching (albeit, a mild form of it), especially at larger sizes. You need to take heavy jewelry for a continuous period of time for this effect to show, but it can make stretching to the next size much easier (to the point of simply putting bigger jewelry without any problems). Also, it’s important to know when to stop and what’s the most appropriate size for your PA piercing.

Many people stretch their piercings to 6g, 2g, 0g or even further, but that’s a matter of preference. Whatever your choice may be, you will be able to find the appropriate jewelry for it. Jewelry choices are the same, only made in larger sizes. It means you can wear curved barbells or captive bead rings at the sizes of 6g, 4g, and more. There are many titanium curved barbells made specifically for PA piercing. Surgical Steel is another popular choice for jewelry material. One thing to keep in mind: while it’s easy to find appropriate jewelry for your stretched Prince Albert piercing, large, heavy jewelry might prove to be uncomfortable. This is why you need to check if this type of jewelry is something you enjoy wearing. If you experience pain or if it gets uncomfortable, it’s advisable to use lighter jewelry pieces or to downgrade your PA to a smaller size.

Stretching Your PA Piercing

PA PiercingThe Prince Albert piercing is the most popular male genital piercing in the world. Even though it seems complicated, it’s actually among the quickest and least invasive genital piercings you can get. Another good thing about this piecing is that it can easily be stretched to a larger gauge if this is what you want.

What Makes PA Piercing Simple?

The PA piercing is less invasive than other male genital piercing because there is actually only a small piece of skin to be pierced. The majority of the flesh used for this piercing already has a natural hole: the urethral canal.

This piercing uses the urethral opening on the top of the penis, then goes through the urethra and only the small portion underside the head of the penis should be pierced. The PA jewelry is inserted using these holes: the hole on the tip of the penis, then urethra and finally the artificial hole made using a piercing needle.

If you like and enjoy your PA piercing you might also like to know that it’s easily stretchable if you wish to wear a larger gauge jewelry.

How to Stretch Your PA

One important thing that needs to be said about the Prince Albert piercing is that it’s very easy to stretch it. This is not true for PA piercing only, but also for many other penis piercings. They are all easily stretchable.

The reason is the penis (glans) tissue, which can be stretched easily. That’s why men who enjoy this piercing usually don’t have any problems stretching it to a larger gauge.

In fact, PA is so easy to stretch that it’s among the most popular piercings for stretching, just after the earlobes. It’s not unusual for guys to wear massive jewelry of large sizes in their PA piercing. Even rings in the gauge 0 or 00 are not unusual to wear with this piercing.

PA is so easy to stretch that, while you need to be careful just like with any other stretching job, you don’t have to go from size to size. You may be able to skip several sizes, though it depends on the tissue and individual anatomy.

One important thing before stretching is to wait for your Prince Albert piercing to be fully healed. This is important. Your piercing has to be healed, clean and in a great condition in order to stretch it to a larger gauge. You should wait at least several months (6 months preferably) until you attempt stretching.

Generally speaking, the stretching is done quickly and without a problem, using one of the many stretching devices available for body piercing enthusiasts. When stretching your PA, it’s important to use a curved device to accommodate your piercing. Chances are that you will be able to skip some gauges without a problem, but you should never force jewelry in.

Additional Advice

  • Large jewelry will stretch your piercing even further.
  • There is no danger to wearing heavy, large jewelry in this piercing. However, big rings and other PA jewelry pieces may be uncomfortable for your partner during oral sex.
  • Many men report increased sexual pleasure when wearing bigger jewelry. Big jewelry is also very enjoyable for the man’s partner during sex.
  • Stretched PA is generally easy to shrink. Penis tissue shrinks pretty quickly, so chances are that you will be able to shrink your piercing to a smaller gauge if you like, or to retire it altogether (provided that you didn’t stretch your PA piercing to a really large gauge).

Prince Albert and Reverse Prince Albert

Prince Albert PiercingThe Prince Albert (PA) piercing is the most popular male genital piercing in the world. Many men enjoy the look – and feel – of a penis that’s pierced in this way. It can bring sexual pleasure to the man, and many people claim that the look of a penis with PA is very striking and sexually stimulating.

Another popular male genital piercing with a similar name is the Reverse PA. While they tend to look pretty similar, these are actually different types of piercings.

Regular PA Piercing

While it may seem complex at the first glance, the ordinary PA piercing is surprisingly easy to perform. The piercing itself goes from the urethral opening on the tip of the penis to the underside of the penis. It means it largely uses the existing space – urethra, so there’s no much flesh to pierce at all. For the most part, the piercing goes through the urethra, so the only part of the penis that is actually pierced is the thin tissue on the underside of the glans. It’s one of the reasons why this is the most popular male genital piercing.

Both circumcised and uncircumcised men can get a PA piercing. Uncircumcised men will have the piercing done a bit off-center so the frenulum and the surrounding tissue is not damaged. Other than that, one’s circumcision status doesn’t dictate PA, so most men can get this piercing without a problem.

Since there’s so little tissue to actually pierce, the procedure is not as painful as some think it might be. Men who are not used to urethral stimulation often report that this part of the procedure is the most unusual one, because special receiving tube has to be inserted into urethra before the piercing is done. None of this is painful, and men who enjoy urethral stimulation don’t have any problems with it.

It takes about 2-4 months for PA to fully heal. During this time, it’s important to perform adequate aftercare and to be careful with any sexual activity you might want to engage in.

Since PA is a popular piercing type, there is a lot of elegant and suitable jewelry you can find to go with it. Most commonly, people wear curved and circular barbells, captive bead rings and segment rings.

Reverse PA

Reverse PAThe Reverse PA is another popular type of male genital piercing, even though it’s very different than the regular PA.

In this piercing, the jewelry goes through the urethra and exits in the hole pierced in the top of the glans. Because there’s more tissue on the upper side of the penis, the procedure is a bit more complex and more painful. However, it’s done quickly enough so usually it doesn’t pose much of the problem.

The main difference between PA and Reverse PA is the placement of the hole. In regular PA, the hole is made on the underside of the penis, while in Reverse PA, the hole goes through the top of the penis.

This difference is not just aesthetical, but also functional. There is more tissue on the top side of the penis head, so Reverse PA goes through more tissue.

The Apadravya piercing (vertical penis piercing) can be seen as a combination of PA and Reverse PA, because the hole goes through the whole penis, from the bottom, through the urethra and on the top.

Additional Information

  • PA piercings tend to bleed when they are fresh. This is normal. Many men are not prepared for this, so it becomes a source of discomfort. You should not worry if you notice some blood. However, if the blood persist, you should consult your doctor.
  • While PA piercings (or other genital piercings) sometimes make men to sit down to urinate, it doesn’t always happen. Many men can control the stream while standing, so if you really hate the idea of urinating while sitting down, there’s a chance that you won’t be forced to do it. It will probably take some patience to learn how to control the stream while standing.
  • Penis heals quickly, so you should always have the jewelry in place, unless you are ready to retire your piercing. Most men can have sex without the jewelry, even though most prefer to leave it in. In case you want to take your jewelry off during sex, make sure to get it right back after sex, because the piercing will start to heal (close).
  • Most PA piercings are done at 10 or 8 gauge. Many men prefer to stretch their PA to 6g or 4g, or even larger. In case you want to do it, make sure to go slowly. Also, never accept to be pierced with anything smaller than 10g. Jewelry that is too thin can lead to the “cheese cutter effect” you sure want to avoid!

Cherry Bomb


Cherry Bomb

Cherry Bomb

Cherry Bombs are very similar to a Screwball Ring in that the ball is threaded onto the ring, except that Cherry Bombs usually have a Large Ball with a very small diameter ring. They are all custom made and on our version we allow you to choose the ball size that you would like. There is a slight gap between the ball and the other end of the ring, which is rounded and highly polished.

The recommended ball size depends on several factors. The Weight that you want, the Gauge of the ring, and the Diameter of the ring.

However as a rule of thumb;
8 gauge – should use a ball – 3/8″ to 3/4″
6 gauge – should use a ball – 1/2″ to 3/4″
4 gauge – should use a ball – 1/2″ to 3/4″
2 gauge – should use a ball – 5/8″ to 3/4″
0 gauge – should use a ball – 5/8″ to 3/4″
00 gauge – should use a ball – 5/8″ to 3/4″
7/16″ gauge – should use a ball – 3/4
