    nipples
    I very recently pierced my nipples and i was wondering what is normal and what is not.

    Is it normal to feel very faint while cleaning them? I nearly passed out this morning in the middle of cleaning them for the first time, i had to stop and lay down for a while before i could finish.

    I was also wondering if i decide to take them out, how soon is too soon and how long will it take from them to heal?


    I was also wondering how long i need to wait before there is any oral contact. Should it be the whole 3-6 months

    How do you know if your nipples are totally healed?

    Hey guys. My name's Vickey, I'm 16, and I live in NY. I've only got one hole in each ear but I'm getting my nose (as in nostril) done soon (right side, in case you'd like to know). I was just wondering if anybody had any advice on it and how much it cost. I can't find this information anywhere (well the advice I can but it's contradictory) and the place I'm probably going to is closed for the day. Thank you so much!

    help!!
    I think my ear cart piercing is infected. There is a big bump on each side, and I just want to take it out. It makes me too nervous, and I don't want to deal with it anymore now. It really pisses me off though, I want it still. Anyway, is it a bad idea to take it out if it's infected? and how can I tell if it's infected? There's a little bit of liquidy stuff, but it's not really pussy. Threre was a tiny bit of it the other day though, but it's mostly just swollen and bumps. Do you think I can take it out?????

    41 Piercings and growing...
    Hi. My name is Jeff, I'll be 54 on the 28th (Lord willing) and have 41 piercings, with plans on getting 2 more soon.

    To date, I have 12 piercings per ear, septum and both mostrils, horizontal and vertical nipples, a Prince Albert ring, a Ball Knocker and 8 rungs in my Jacob's Ladder, with plans on adding 2 more rungs.

    Not bad for an old guy.

    Best wishes,

    Jeff

    Nose Bump
    I got the bump on my nose piercing. I think it's symmetrical on the inside and out. I heard it's either a cyst or scar tissue or whatever cause by irritation? I was sick right after, and I've needed to blow my nose a lot. All the websites I've looked at are contradictory, so I'm not sure how I should attempt to heal it. I have a nose screw. And I'm not allergic because I also had my labret and ears pierced with the same metal...it wouldn't make a difference in a different spot? could it?

    From what I've seen, soaking it in warm sea salt water seems to be the safest and most reliable way to heal it? Anyone know any other ways, or know if I'm wrong about what I think it is? Or does anyone have any tips at all?

    so this is like..my maiden speech...
    Oh my god, Nat, I joined.

    Ok...my piercings consist off...Both ears, and the top of my right ear.
    I wanted my tongue, but faded out of that, as with my belly button.

    I do enjoy piercing, the thrill of the needle, the tension before it pierces... ~orgasms~
    Yea...My work also restricts me from being able to get any facial piercings and stuff...

    So yea...Im here mainly for the arguments :P Waiting for someone to badmouth pierchings etc...

    Sorry, thats not the only reason, but itd be funny if it was.

    Catchaz ~mwahs~

    surface piercings
    Image hosted by Photobucket.com

    this is my surface piercing that i had done last week. i saw my piercer and he told me it was going well.

    a tip for anyone with a surface piercing, or most piercings for that matter, is the camomile tea bag trick. all you need is boiling water, a couple of camomile tea bags, and an ice cube tray. make sure you have enough water to fill the ice cube tray, generally 250mL, depending on where you buy your tray from. soak a couple of tea bags (give or take) until the water takes on a light colour. pour the water gently into the tray, ensuring each cube section is equally filled. leave to cool for about 10 minutes, then pop in the freezer for about 12 hours. after this, just take one ice cube daily (this should suffice) and allow the cube to melt over the piercing. this reduces swelling, pain, and redness, and the camomile has been known to prevent unnecessary scarring.

    although i am mighty proud of this piercing, i made sure i was well informed of the risks. the nape is a high-risk area, and it is a very painful piercing to have done. there are a lot of nerves in that area and some serious damage could be done if your piercer doesnt know what theyre doing.

    my piercer has done several nape piercings and was confident in performing the piercing. before having this type of piercing done, talk to someone who has had one done that has lasted without growing out or rejecting. the nape piercing has a high rate of rejection (the body reacting badly to the piercing, causing infection, swelling, irritation, etc...) and, if possible, talk to someone who has had a negative experience and find out what went wrong. chances are the piercer had not performed many nape piercings, or the piercee didnt take proper care of their piercing.

    the standard cleaning solution is saline. a good way to avoid touching this piercing (or again, any piercing) is to put the saline in a spray bottle. this allows for a fairly even distribution of the saline without having to use cotton buds or dirty fingers. still, wash your hands thoroughly incase you feel the need to touch it (not recommended).

    this article is quite good, and is an example of the disadvantages of a surface piercing. it does look good, but requires a lot of care and attention. i think that you must remember with any piercing that it takes a lot of work to maintain, and if you arent willing to do that then youre wasting your money.

    Nape piercing: sacrafice and scar tissue

    Take care and stay cool :D
