Trying On Piercings

Ansley Ansley
I am interested in getting my nipples pierced, but am reluctant to run right out and do it. Someone suggested I try wearing some form of nipple rings on a constant basis for a period of thirty days to see if it's for me.

Do you have any recommendations? Something I could wear under clothing, with a bra, or in the shower would be best. I am at a loss for ideas. I have a pair of nipple rings but they wouldn't work for this purpose as they always slide off.

Also, how long did it take for your piercings to heal? Anything else I should know?

Would you pierce your nipples again, knowing what you know now?

For the most part yes, but there are some days where I would say never again!

EF sells some no-pierce nipple rings for around $20, but I'm not sure how well they would stay on. (The Cal Exotics belly button ring I got was a pretty epic fail.)

I know a clip-on version isn't going to give you the same experience, but it might be a good way to see if you get sick of them or really like them.

I love my nipple peircings, even though they ended up not being even (and one got snagged and ripped a bit, making them even less even, but whatever). Once I have kids and start breastfeeding I plan to take them out and then get them repierced (evenly!) when that's all over with. Yes it definitely hurt to have done, but all you need to do is be calm and breathe and soon enough it's over and your nips are suddenly gorgeous and shiny

They did take a little while to heal. The left one healed like a dream but the other gave me problems for the first year. I just kept on it with the sea salt soaks and not fiddling with it and eventually it came around.
It's been 4 years now and they're completely just part of my body, and super cute. I have small breasts and decided to pierce them initially to try and find a way to accept and like my chest more, and while it hasn't been a complete success it did work well enough. I have more confidence and my boyfriend thinks they're super hot Back when I was dating I would never tell a guy beforehand and he'd just eventually find out for himself once we were fooling around. I only ever got extremely positive reactions, it was great.

Personally I don't think the 30 day nipple ring trial challenge will end up helping you with the choice - more likely it'll just be a hassle. Look at lots of pictures, read up on lots of info and experiences (I highly recommend for this this, they're super comprehensive and great, although they did redo their site in such a way that navigating it kinda sucks, so good luck there haha). Just do a lot of thinking and see if you stay excited about it or if it passes. If you have any little stud earrings, hold them up on either side of your nipple to envision what it'd look like pierced. It might take a bit of imagination, but it works.

Thank you very much for your thorough response! I'm nervous as hell about it, to be honest. I just started liking my breasts and I don't want to ruin it in anyway. At the same time, I can't help but think "it's just two holes, no biggie". I barely notice my tongue piercing anymore, though sometimes I can feel the scar tissue.

My goal, if I get it done, is to have very thin hoops instead of barbells.

I dated someone who had pierced nipples. It was a lot of fun.

I would absolutely pierce my nipples again (and probably will; one of mine was pierced too closely to the surface.)

My DAD got a nipple piercing when I was about 13. I would never even consider getting it done after that, lol. I've also heard his story about getting it done. Warning: what I am about to type might freak you out

So he says that he went into a tattoo/piercing joint at the beach. They put him on a table and a woman comes up to him to do the piercing. She has a long metal rod. There's some small conversation and then she tells him to stay as still as possible or it will hurt a lot more. She then proceeds to, without warning, stick the rod half way through his nipple, squirm it around a little to get it straight, and then continue sticking it through to the other side, slowly.

Maybe his was just a bad experience, but it was enough to make me never want to get it done.

As someone who does piercings the healing process is different for everyone however the general healing time is 6 to 8 weeks. I wouldnt recommend them before children. The piercing process is rather simple takes only a few minutes but can be on the painful side. A piercing is something you choose for yourself but there is no exact way of telling what your expierence will be like unless you get them done. Just make sure you go to a professional who is using sterilized equipment and jewelry.
