Body piercing has become increasingly popular over the years. With nose, eyebrow, and navel piercings becoming more commonplace, many women choose to go a step further and get an exotic female piercing.
Your first and most important step in getting a female piercing is research. Make sure to choose a piercer that you are comfortable with, and who works in a clean and safe environment. All instruments used during your piercing should be autoclaved first, and removed from their sterile packaging in front of you. Your piercer should always wear gloves, and spend some time going over aftercare procedures with you. If he or she doesn't seem willing to take the time to explain things to you, or doesn't use sanitary equipment or procedures, walk away. Also remember, cheaper is not better when it comes to getting a female piercing.
A female piercing can refer to several different types of piercings in the genital area. One of the most common is the VCH, or vertical hood piercing. When a woman says she has a clitoral piercing, this is most likely the type she has. After healing, either a barbell or ring will work well in this piercing. Other popular choices are horizontal hood piercings, actual clitoral piercings, the Christina piercing, and labia piercings. As each woman is built differently and heals differently, not all the female piercings will work well for everyone. For example, the Christina, as a surface piercing, is rather prone to rejection. This is where your choice of piercer comes into play again. He or she should be able to advise you as to whether the female piercing you want is a good choice for you, or if not, recommend one that is.
Aftercare for a female piercing can be especially tricky. Extra due diligence will be necessary to keep the piercing clean until it heals. Follow your piercer's instructions exactly, as using products not recommended by your piercer can delay or actually deter healing. Be sure to wear clothing that does not excessively rub against your female piercing, as this can irritate it, which can also delay or deter healing. Go back to your piercer right away if you think anything might be going wrong with your piercing.
Female piercing is not a choice for the faint of heart. But if you want a piercing that is rather unique, and you are brave enough to go for it, you will likely enjoy your female piercing very much.
