    Hey Guys,

    Recently got one of my nipples pierced. Have always been intrigued by it, plus I heard that it can increase sensation in the nippular area. I am HUGE on nipple play so I figured why not. Well, its been a few weeks and I think its about ready to do a little light play.

    Wondering what your experiences were with nipple piercings (either from the getting one side, to being on the other side with playing with them). Anything I should know - tips for care, new things to try with the piercing, etc?

    I once knew a guy who wore a locket on a chain that was attached to both nipple rings.
    That was kinda hot. icon_biggrin.gif

    Wait 2 months MINIMUM before you let anyone do anything to it. When your body gets a puncture wound (a piercing, included), it heals from the outside to the inside... With you being more active--im assuming you are doing chest workouts--it might take up to 10 to 12 weeks to fully heal.

    As far as care, do NOT use antibacterial soaps and try to avoid soaps with dies and colors (Dove works great). Wash them at least 3 times a day, and obviously after a work out. Also, you can go to Rite-Aid, Walgreen, CVS or some other drug store and get a can of sterile saline spray. That way, you can stray it on your piercing after washing.

    After your healing period and depending on your tolerance to pain, your experience may vary than mine and others, however, there is some increased sensitivity but you become used to it after a while.

    After mine healed, i seemed to get a little clumsy, I would hit my chest on everything and that is NOT a good feeling. Also, you do not realize how much you hit your chest when doing presses! :: ouch :: !

    Huge on nipple play?; reading this causes me to have a hard on!

    Do whatever the piercer has told you to look after it. Follow the directions to the letter so that it heals properly. In the first few months, try not to move it too much (if at all) because it's still healing. Salt water is your friend. Enjoy!

    I got mine done in October of 2009, and they didn't fully heal til about a month ago. Well, I actually had to get my left one re-pierced in December because the damn lady made it crooked.

    I have been clumsy a few times (i.e. pulling my shirt off too quickly) and it didn't feel good at all. But, now I can lightly glide my fingers over and tease all I want and it feels great...

    Right now, I have barbells. I don't want anything to dangle in fear of it catching on something. OUCH!

    My left one is a bit more sensitive, but I guess that's because I had it done twice. Or maybe it's because I'm left-handed... icon_smile.gif

    Oops... I forgot to tell you...

    Keep them clean ALL the time! I used salt water, and that kept everything good. I had no troubles with swelling or bleeding, but the few times I forgot to cleanse the area, they got a little red.

    Anyways, good luck!

    I've never had my nipples pierced but I had several facial piercings when I was a teenager, all of them were surface piercings....

    The only advice I can offer is keep them incredibly clean and don't pick at them.

    I had OCD when it came to picking at the (totally normal) crusty discharge...I'm the same way with scabs.

    As previously mentioned, a few weeks is NOT enough time for them to fully heal. Don't let anyone start tugging on 'em.

    It takes 6 to9 months for them to completely heal.
    It is not a great idea to have them played with after a few weeks.
    Just make sure for the first 3 months you clean them properly with a saline solution.

    And...if you had sensitive nipples to start, this is going to make you climb the walls in ecstacy. Just make sure that people dont readily start grabbing your nipples...it was a constant battle to have them not touch mine.

    New things to try...be gentle - a gentle flicking will now do what a nibble or pinch did before.

    Just clean after each and every play.

    Just take your time...let it heal and then go wild.

    Oh and, you will probably get both done soon. icon_twisted.gif

    Cotton bud with saline solution.
    Just clean twice a day.

    It DOES take 6-9 months to heal. Keep it clean. After that, it felt like I never had a piercing. (got rid of it about 7 years ago--felt it was a 90's thing for me and an alternative to a tattoo many friends were getting as we hit 40!)

    Reading this thread has soooooo made me want to get them pierced!

    The question I have though - if you get nipples pierced and then decide you don't want it anymore, what's it like when it heals up? Are they ruined forever? I'd only be interested in small bars.

    I had both of mine done about about 5 months ago, and had no problem running a half marathon the week after. I started out with Saline Irrigation that I got since I worked in a pharmacy (though the over the counter saline works fine, just costs more). I washed them with the foam of liquid antibacterial hand soap and on days that I was going to be running more I used Tea Tree Oil as antibacterial and to dry them out a bit (it smells horrible though). I was able to take them out and change them within 2 months no problem.

    I also learned to wear beaters and tried to swim in a saltwater pool a couple of times a week for the first few weeks.

    I found that as long as the person who was playing with them had either just cleaned their hands or where in the pool with me that I had no problem with contact. No oral contact with the little buggers for a while ( I think I waited at least 3 months on that).

    Other than that have fun. I started with a I believe a 12g but if you went bigger it will take more time.

    I know, I know--throwing this in here is sort of off topic, but while we're on the subject of piercings, I'd like to hear from any of you who have a PA piercing, because I'm considering it. I've heard that the pain level is nothing compared to a nipple piercing, and that it heals pretty quickly.

    Anyone sporting a Prince Albert out there have any regrets? Any words of advice?

    Some of the literature I've seen suggests that the peeing issue varies and that some guys are able to pee standing up without it spraying everywhere. I guess it's a risk one has to take into account, but it's not a deal-breaker for me. But again, it would be good to get some input from some of you who have experience with PAs.

    That's exactly what I imagine when I think about piercings, not just on the chest but on any part of the body - except it would never be by Dad, but some nutcase I might come across in the gym or sauna.
    Therefore I would never allow any piercing instrument (whatever it is called) anywhere near me!

    I had them both pierced about 12 years ago.

    The first thing I would advise is to resist the urge to play with them for at least another couple months.

    DO NOT let anyone suck on them until they are well healed. The human mouth can have some nasty bugs in it. I ended up with some nasty infections after guys kept trying to nurse on me on the dance floor. Oh, btw. If you have captive bead rings, chances are an over enthusiastic partner is going to end up dislodging and swallowing the bead at some point.

    After they healed completely, I really enjoyed them. Unfortunately, my body pushed the piercings out. I took them out just before they pushed all the way out of the nipple because I was worried it would leave some weird bifurcated scars if I let push all the way out on their own.

    Not to scare ya, but I have only heard horror stories about nipple piercings. Plus one of the first parties I went to at my University I saw some get ripped off.

    *shivers* Good luck though.

    I used antimicrobial wash and saline wash. Now I just use saline wash after working out, I've had mine for about 3 years now. It took awhile for sensitivity to develop in me, as I was never very sensitive in that area.
    And don't rush into playing with them for awhile...my piercer instructed me to wait at least 6 months. icon_eek.gif
    actually that was easy, cause i was pretty much celibate at that time.

    I had both of mine done several years ago. They took a loooong time to heal. In fact, I battled one for three years and gave up. The other has settled nicely. Funnily enough, the nipple I removed the piercing from is now far more sensitive than the one with the piercing. Go figure!

    I've had mine stretched out to a 6g, with a 4g on the horizon. The thicker the better, they don't tear out so easily. And yes, one of mine was almost torn out all the way by a bath towel! Thicker gauges help to eliminate this problem...

    Good luck with yours, they're a lot of fun!

    After only a few weeks I think I am already wanting the second one done :-P
