Nipple piercings are one of our most popular requests. The mere mention of this may cause you to grip your chest protectively or thrill you with the idea of a sultry surprise. Either way these piercings are frequently used to help individuals reclaim ownership over and acceptance of their own body. Alternately they may simply complete visual aesthetic goals using our beautiful array of jewelry options. Like most piercings, nipples are a deeply personal experience- varying from person to person. While they may seem at first glance like a purely provocative adornment, they are only as sexually charged as the wearer chooses. They appeal to a broad spectrum of individuals because of their ability to be either publicly flaunted or kept a discreetly personal secret. Regardless of what inspires you, they are a grand reveal that is a physical reminder of one’s inner strength and resolve. If you would like to delve deeper, we have an in depth history of the nipple piercing here for those who are interested in the cultural significance of these adornments over time.
Nipples come in all shapes and sizes, and because of this, nipple piercings must be equally versatile. Many people imagine the nipple piercing horizontally across the nipple, parallel with the ground. That is just one possibility! There is also the option to do these piercings vertically or at angles sloping inwards towards the navel or outwards towards the hips. These alternative angles may be suggested due to anatomy restrictions or just for a more unique visual effect. We will do our best with your anatomy and our training to accommodate your vision. Ask as many questions as you like…We are happy to discuss the whys and wherefores of your piercings so that you can make empowered choices.
Nipple piercings can take up to a year or longer to heal depending on factors of anatomy and care. During the first 3-6 months of healing, you will need to avoid submerging your piercings in hot tubs, bathtubs, lakes, oceans, streams, etc. So plan your piercing responsibly around vacations and swim meets. We always do a consultation as part of your piercing process to assess and discuss factors that may help or hinder your healing. If you have a goal in mind, including jewelry options such as rings or stretching, be sure to mention this to your piercer. We will work with you to ensure the best possible experience. Following a few basic tips such as daily hygiene and good nutrition will positively affect your piercing.
