    I'm sure that there are probably many forum threads about this already but i'm wanting to get some feedback about getting a nipple piercing.

    Anyone out there able to share their own experience abut how long it took till you could do proper chest exercises again and how long did you require time off from gym...?


    Thanks in advance guys.

    No time off. Just put some bandages over them so they don't rub. You'll be fine. It will take a full year to completely heal.

    -I got mine done when I was 18. I only had 1.5 hrs to have them done and not back out. I went straight to my student work job afterwards to move heavy equipment. I still have 'em.

    Just recently got mine done for the second time. I learned the hard way you really should take a little time off and let 'em fully heal. I took 3 weeks off swim practice and it was killin' me so I went back and yeahhhh bad idea. Everywhere i've seen the min. time is 6 weeks though.
    6 weeks of not messing with them, only to clean them and move them a little.
    Though I know you're gonna wanna play with 'em try not to!

    My situation might be a bit different though so I'm not sure if we're in the same boat. The patches may be a good idea, I just know they definitely don't stay on in the water!

    When I had mine done (eons ago), it hurt for maybe a second and that was that. But when I left the store, I thought I was going to puke. It happens.

    Healing time really shouldn't intefere with working out, but check with your piercing professional.

    I love nipple rings that hang off a pumped chest (not lie flat).

    Out of all my piercings (eyebrow, nipples, navel, frenum, and Prince Albert), the nipples were by far the most painful. I screamed at the top of my lungs both times.

    I don't have nip piercings, but have heard read alot about them on a site that I go to from time to time that has a forum for folks to get info and advice about their piercing (I have a PA and any questions I ever had about the piercing and healing process were thoroughly addressed there). Go to www.tribalectic.com.

    From what I've read, nip piercings can take a long time to heal, they migrate easily, and they require a lot of patience. One guy I know, a bodybuilder, ended up taking his new nip piercings out because he kept bumping the fresh piercing at the gym during his workouts and it hurt like hell and interrupted the healing process.

    Other guys I know have had no problem with theirs, but then again they weren't as active as you are. If you have to change your lifestyle too much to accommodate a piercing, it's probably worth a second thought.

    I got both of mine done a week before I ran a half marathon. You will be fine to go to the gym, just make sure you clean em. Also maybe it was me but I don't really suggest getting them one after another. I got mine about 2 days apart. I read that you use up ALOT of adrenaline on the first one so the second will be much more painful if done immediately after. Also this sounds bad but on my right one he got stuck half way through and stopped before finishing.

    If this is true, do it.

    I got mine pierced a while back, the second one took me by surprise and I nearly kicked my piercer in the head by complete accident. Never flinched with eyebrow or ears when I had them pierced. Oh, and don't get me wrong, the first one still -hurts-. My piercer told me that often guys that get it and a prince albert done says the nipples hurt more. Then again, some people don't feel it at all.

    DO MAKE NOTE: Bandages work, but still be careful of catching them on equipment (it hurts, it really does) and of letting people come anywhere near them. I got a nasty infection because people though it wise to play with them after I specifically asked them not to.

    Hope no one thinks less of me, but just get a little drunk and go! That's what I did. It was nothin' barely even felt it. Although depending on if the guy is cool or not, he might not do it b/c you will likely bleed. Blood isn't pain though! Just red stuff that you aren't feelin'. But yeah if you were to, try to conceal it if possible.
    It might've also had somethin' to do with the first time I got 'em done a friend did it for me..who I found out after had never done it on another person before besides herself..if you can imagine how that would be. Bad memories.. Alooooot better the second time around.
    I believe in you! Get it done!

    Getting my nip pierced was the worst pain I've ever experienced. I was sweating bullets by the time it was done. But, once it was over, the pain wasn't so bad and I didn't have to take any time off from my workout routine.

    Yea, the pain doesn't last all that long.

    But yea at the gym you can do anything you feel comfortable with. Don't jump into anything that is going to place a lot of pressure on your chest for a little time but I can't imagine doing anything that would catch them. I just got studs for the first couple of months so the only problem I had was one of the dogs biting into one while he was playing with me (it scared me because I did start bleeding but just keeping it clean was fine).

    But yea I also used Tea Tree Oil on it to dry it out when I knew I would be sweating a lot. It smells awful but it dries them out when I would be doing harsh workouts.

    Also I took Zinc to help with the healing and because I worked in a pharmacy I was able to get some huge bottles of Sodium Chloride (and I used shot glasses to wash them out) but over the counter Wound Wash would be fine if you are worried about getting them infected using tap water.

    And just to reiterate this. I have been through car wrecks, four wheeler wrecks, broken bones from sports, etc. This is by far the worst pain I had ever felt in my life. It doesn't last long but you feel every millisecond of it.

    I got mine done in February. If you have sensitive nipples then it will probably hurt some... mine were never sensitive... that was till after. I am glad I did it. Just go for it... you can always take them out later if you choose. and www.tribalectic.com is a great site to get information about it and source for new (larger gauge rings/bells) My real advice is to make sure you pick something you want to look at for at least 4 months... and yes you have to maintain them. they will leak lymph fluid on occasion.. As far as work outs, make sure you keep them clean..

    When I had mine pierced I had to take two wks off my chest workouts. I tried to get back to the routines sooner but it just hurt too much. Every time I used the pecs it just put too much movements on the nipples, and the pain pretty much sapped away all my strength.

    Advice is to just get them both done at one time. If you put it off there's a chance you might not come back for the second one, it's pretty damn painful.

    Afterward try to limit movements to the area as much as possible. Put a dressing over it for as long as possible. Tight T-shirts and necklaces can give you hell if they get caught in the piercings accidentally.

    Your nipples will be SENSITIVE once the piercings are in. Adds a whole level of BDSM to sex if you're into that kinda thing. If not you'll start appreciating your partner's tongue a whole lot more once they come near the nips.

    I wouldnt recommend doing any contact sports while they're in. Wrestling, boxings, martial arts would be out. Imagine having them accidentally ripped off during a wrestling match. OUCH! I took mine off for that reason.
