How do they pierce the clitoris?

  • Friday, May 03 2013

Typically a piercer will not pierce the actual clitoris, but the hood of the clitoris (the fold of skin that covers it, much like the foreskin in men).

Well just like male exotic piercings, these are piercings that should only be done by a qualified seasoned professional body piercer. The anatomical structures must be understood and the jewellery for these various piercings must be only of the highest quality, and the skill and knowledge of a professional piercer applied to the requested piercing to assure a good safe result. 

There are many variations of female exotic piercing available, these need to be discussed with your piercer to find the piercing that is right for you. I have seen many exotic piercings done by other less experienced piercers where the jewellery selection was wrong, the placement was incorrect and the aftercare was shear hell for the client. I have also been told about cases of inappropriate behaviour from other inexperienced piercers who are just pretending to be knowledgeable professionals. 

So this is where your research and a prepiercing interview with the possible piercer of your choice are so very important. With any reputable studio, you must be able to have a guest with you during the piercing, if not, take that studio out of the running for your business. Interview the piercer, seriously interview them like they are applying for a job, because that's exactly what they are doing, they want your work so they need to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that they know what they are doing. Do they have documented proof they have been actively piercing for as long as they say they have? 

When asking about the piercings you and your guest should be taken off the general public floor for a discrete consultation. This is where the female or male piercer will prove they know what they are doing by explaining the piercing to you in detail and covering jewellery choices and placement locations as well as the aftercare and possible risks involved in the requested piercing. 

You need to know that all exotic piercings should never be attempted by a novice piercer or yourself at home. Serious long term damage can result from inexperience, poor disinfection and not using sterilized materials. So ensure your piercer shows you all the materials that will be used during the provision of your piercing, what is sterilized must be and proof of sterilization should be evident. Discretion, is your piercer discrete? I have heard complaints about piercers seeing clients in malls and stores about town and asking how there exotic piercings are doing (tacky not to mention inappropriate. So when interviewing your piercer ask what the shop privacy policy is and how they maintain your privacy. 

Yes there is a bit to go over but I can assure you that once you have done your research and taken some of the steps I have pointed out here, you should find a good studio with a great piercer, and the piercing you always wanted. Done safely and professionally. 

The reasons you should not attempt to pierce your self should be obvious, but for those who think it's a "DIY" project, here's some food for thought. 

Infection and contraction of MRSA, HIV, Meningitis, Hepatitis and Tetanus are all very serious health issues, MRSA is an antibiotic resistant bacteria that can in most cases land the unlucky individual in the hospital (and has been responsible for serious deformities and deaths). These infections has been caused by using unsterilized equipment and materials.Sterilization is not achieved by pouring alcohol over needles and jewellery, or burning these items over a fire or exposed flame. Microorganisms live in the fine fissures and cracks in needles and jewellery and only the high temperature and pressure of a steam Autoclave can render these and many other bacteria harmless. 

The above reasons alone should be enough to sway anyone from thinking they can do it themselves. Professional body piercers have years of hands on training and education to enable them to make any piercing "look simple", when in fact they are considering dozens of things when they lay out a piercing and actually do it. So consider your lack of knowledge, training and skills before you attempt to do any self piercing, once you pierce it, it's damaged tissue. This makes it even more difficult for a professional piercer to leave you with a great looking piercing when the area we have to work with is damaged by self inflicted attempts. 

Wikianswers is not a venue to provide how to information that can lead to serious personal injury, such postings will be deleted from the site.
Even though the clitoris is rarely pierced I will answer this anyway. When you go in you go through the same procedures as any other genital piercing. Once the area has been cleaned, and prepped the hood is pushed back and the clitoris is clamped. Sometimes a really good piercer will go freehand or use a cork. After the preparation it is performed in the same way as any other piercing. To point out, most people with a "clit piercing" actually mean a hood piercing with is less intrusive, less painful and an overall easier piercing.
