Who knew that putting a tattoo on your cock would feel good!

If you are a beginner that is not ready to try wearing a cock ring around your balls, this will likely be too big for you to get erection enhancement, but the vibes will be nice. If you DO want to try a cock ring that fits over the balls, the size and material is perfect to experiment with. Experienced users will like the durable silicone and stronger than average vibes.

The Inked Enhancer vibrating cock ring by California Exotic is a nice way for you to "get inked" without all the pain and permanency. As the name suggests, this cock ring is adorned on one side with a design that resembles a tribal tattoo. This isn't really going to make you look like you have a tattoo, but it does look pretty cool. Cock rings are supposed to trap the blood into the penis and keep it harder for longer, increase stamina, and heighten sensitivity and pleasure. The vibrating cock rings have the added benefit of giving the wearer extra stimulation, and (if things line up just right) can give your partner extra stimulation as well.

While the quality material and nice vibes would be great for any user, beginner or advanced, this is not a one size fits all cock ring. I'll will go into this more in the size section, but would just like to state that if you are looking for something to help maintain an erection you may need to measure yourself first. The size of the ring is just too big to be effective for most sizes, if you are just going to put it around your penis. If you plan to try and put it around your balls as well as your cock, it may end up seeming too small for you if you are inexperienced and intimidated. On the other hand, if you are just looking for something to add style and vibes to your sex play, you could definitely have some fun with this.

The bullet that is included is pretty powerful for it's small size and the vibes are easily felt for the male wearing it. You could wear it with the bullet positioned at the top of your shaft or turn it around and have the vibrations on the underside of your sack. ( I especially enjoyed it this way! ) The position of the bullet however, makes it hard to stimulate your partner at the same time unless you are grinding your bodies together. That being said, my girl did say that this ring made my cock feel like it was vibrating and she enjoyed the new sensation.

Material / Texture

The ring portion of this toy is made from non-porous red silicone. The "tribal" markings are black and slightly raised, giving a small bit of texture that can be felt if your bodies are grinding together. Other than that, the ring is smooth. There is a seam that runs in the middle all the way around the ring portion, but it is barely noticeable and you can not feel it all during use. The silicone is firm but flexible, though it isn't as stretchy as similar rings made out of TPR rubber or jelly. As with most silicone, there is no smell or taste. The bullet portion of this toy is made of smooth black plastic, and has a push button on the bottom.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Stretchy

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The design of this cock ring is pleasing to the eye, but it is a little off in it's size and function. The deep red and black compliment each other and the "inked" part gives it some nice visual interest. My girl likes the way this looks on me and it definitely gives her something sexy to look at. The only drawback to its sleek design, is that it positions the bullet in a way that doesn't allow much stimulation for your partner. As stated above, unless you are grinding your bodies together it just doesn't protrude enough to make contact. While it does transfer some vibration to your shaft, it isn't much. It's enough to add a little something extra, but it will not turn your cock into an even moderately powered vibrator. That being said, if you can get your bodies close enough together, the bullet is powerful enough to stimulate the clitoris, labia, taint, or anus depending on how you wear the cock ring in relation to where you place the bullet as well as what position you are in.

As for the size and fit, it really depends on your anatomy and how you choose to wear this that determines whether it will be comfortable or functional. Unstretched, the portion of the ring that is made to got around the penis is 1 and 1/4 inches in diameter. If you just want to put it around your penis to get the vibrations, this size should work for most without slipping too much. However, if your cock is on the thin side, lube and/or vaginal juices can make it slip and possibly make keeping the bullet in place a little tricky. This is why I suggest measuring your self, depending on what you want to get from this ring. If you are wanting a cock ring that will trap the blood in your penis and keep you rock hard, you would have to have a pretty thick cock for this ring to work. Unless of course, you choose to place this around your balls as well. This can be intimidating for the inexperienced, but I will say that the stretchy silicone makes this easier for a beginner to try than a thick silicone one or a metal one. There is plenty of give here to experiment. This cock ring has a maximum stretched diameter of 2 and 1/2 inches. Actually, the silicone is thin enough but durable enough to withstand even more stretch than that if you are careful. If you are new to wearing a cock ring in this way, I would suggest you use some good lube, take your time, and be mindful of pulling pubic hair. Every body is different, but with a little patience and practice, most users should be able to get this to work for them.

As for convenience and ease of wear, that is also subjective. This cock ring felt very comfortable to me once I got it on properly. Aside from pulling a few hairs the first time, I had no problems with it. It stayed in place and didn't pinch. It didn't feel so tight as to be painful, just tight enough to do its job. Once you put this on properly to see how it is done, it gets quicker and easier each time. It is only recommended that you wear cock rings this tight for 30 minutes max, so as not to cause any damage from no blood circulation.
    • Beginner
    • Can fit over both shaft and testicles

Functions / Performance / Controls

The bullet slips into the top portion of the cock ring. It is a snug fit and can be hard to get in and out without lube. The bullet itself is waterproof and has three vibration settings. All are steady vibes but different in intensity. You push the button on the end and it turns the bullet on, starting out with the lowest setting, which is barely a flutter. Unless you are very sensitive, this setting will do nothing but annoy you. Push the button again and it goes up in intensity to medium, which is great for teasing extra sensitive areas like nipples, balls, and inner thighs. The last setting is pretty powerful for such a tiny bullet, though not as strong as a full sized egg style bullet. Depending on your sensitivity, it may be difficult for some to orgasm from the vibes alone. For any one who has the Iconic Bullet, it is the exact size and intensity as that. Not mind blowing by any means, but definitely better than most bullets of this type that come with cock rings.

The bullet uses three watch batteries which are included, as well as three more for a total of 6. I hate buying watch batteries, so it's nice that they give you an extra set. We haven't run down the first set yet, but we have used it three times at about 15-20 minutes each time. If this bullet is anything like the Iconic Bullet, it will eat through them very soon. Should this be the case,I will be sure to note this in my follow up review.
    • Easy to use
    • Very stimulating

Care and Maintenance

Silicone can be washed, bleached, boiled, and sanitized to your heart's content. The bullet is waterproof, but does have electrical components, so I wouldn't boil it. We generally just wash it with hot water and liquid antibacterial hand soap and wipe it dry. We store both parts in a plastic zip top sandwich bag. Silicone needs to kept away from other silicone as it can sometimes react and melt it or damage it. That also means you should not use silicone lubricants with the cock ring portion.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Experience

While my cock is thick enough to wear the ring just on my penis with out it slipping around, the ring just isn't tight enough worn that way for me to get any benefit in the erection department. I don't have a problem staying hard, but I like for cock rings to be tight enough to keep me "rock" hard the whole time. I decided the best way for me to wear this was to add my balls into the mix as well. The way I put this on was to first put my cock through, then stretched the ring a bit and push/pull my balls through one at a time. This can be tricky when you aren't used to it, especially with your hands slick from lube. My anatomy is such that my balls are on the smaller side and can be very tight and drawn up. I had to have my girl help me the first time because the lube just made it more difficult to keep my sack from slipping out. Once I realized this, I was able to get it on the next time on my own with out lube to make every thing so slippery. Every one's anatomy is different though, so experiment to see what works best for you.

So how did it feel? I loved it! In addition to keeping me rock hard, it also made my balls bulge up and out more, so they came in contact with my partner during sex. The ring pulls the skin taunt and makes the balls more sensitive. This is great not only during intercourse, but during foreplay, blow jobs, and masturbation as well. It just makes my whole package more sensitive and the vibes feel really great. I would recommend this to any one with a cock, whether alone or with a partner.
Follow-up commentary
I have really been enjoying this lately. I wanted to do my follow up review early because I wanted to mention the battery life. It does come with six free batteries which gives you one battery change, so that's pretty nice. I used up the first set after about 5 uses at 15 to 20 minutes each time, so that's not too bad considering the batteries were free. I did however buy some Duracell batteries to see if the name brand would make a difference in the vibes and it does kick up the power a notch. Still, these batteries can be expensive if you you use this as much as we do, so it's something to consider. The average user could get quite a bit of use from the batteries that are included, but the name brand does make such a difference in the vibes that I feel bad for wasting the the others. It's hard to put the cheap batteries back in when once you've felt the difference!
