Frenum piercing is one of the most common penis piercings. It is done on the underside of the penis along the shaft. Typical Frenum piercing is performed just under the penis head, on the frenum connecting the penis head to the shaft. However, Frenum piercings can be done at any point down the shaft. In most of the cases, Frenum piercings are done centrally but some can be done on the right or left side of the shaft. A Frenum piercing placed very low on the shaft near the base of the penis is known as Lorum piercing. Frenum piercings are known to heal relatively quickly, in about 2 to 6 weeks. Typical jewelry for this piercing includes circular barbells and Captive Bead Rings.
Many men choose to get more than one Frenum piercing. A series of Frenum piercings positioned along the shaft is known as a Frenum Ladder (or Jacob’s Ladder). Since Frenum piercings are relatively easy to perform and they heal quickly, it is not rare for many of them to be done at the same time. Typically, a Frenum Ladder starts just below the penis head and goes all the way down to the base of the penis. Some men choose to extend this ladder even further, to the Lorum piercing and down to the scrotum all the way to the perineum. Such a ladder that goes from the underside of the penis head all the way down to the perineum will also include Hafada piercings and Guiche piercings.
