Professional Genital Piercings

  • Depending on the genitals, the piercing and the person, healing time can take between 4 to 8 weeks or 4 to 6 months.
  • Everyone’s genital anatomy is different. Your piercing appointment will include an expert consultation to determine which type of piercing may be the best fit for you.
  • Age restrictions obviously apply for genital piercings. Only clients 18 and older are eligible for any type of genital piercing.
  • Let your piercing to heal before exposing your piercing to irritation or bacteria (sexual activity). A temporary vow of celibacy isn’t necessary, but caution is.
  • The cheapest jewelry can call itself hypoallergenic. Remember that is NOT the same thing as implant grade.

Additional Facts & Tips

Types of Genital Piercings

  • The most popular vaginal piercings are the Christina/Venus, a surface piercing above the clitoral hood on the pubis; vertical or horizontal clitoral hood piercings; and inner and outer labia piercings.
  • Common penile piercings include the ampallang and apadravya, which go through the head from side to side and top to bottom respectively
  • The Prince Albert, which inserts through the underside of the head and exits from the urethral opening
  • Frenum piercings placed along the underside of the penile shaft (dorsal frenum for the top side); scrotum (hafada) piercings; and perineum (guiche) surface piercings.

What to Expect

  • Genital piercing recipients should expect a good deal of pain. There are plenty of nerve endings in these areas and one of the risks of genital piercings is the potential for nerve damage.
  • Professional piercers mitigate these risks with proper placement or advising against certain piercings for certain anatomies.
  • Expect to abstain from any sexual activity that would expose your piercings to rough treatment and bacteria until they are fully healed.
  • Condoms and dental dams even for monogamous partners are advisable for penile piercings until the walls of the fistula are thickened, but lengthy periods of abstinence are not typically necessary.
  • In most cases you can engage in sexual activity as soon as you feel ready. Be smart, be gentle and listen to your body.
  • Stop immediately if you begin to feel discomfort. Ampallangs and apadravyas may be exceptions as they can take months to stop hurting during and after use.

Genital Piercing Aftercare

  • Don’t take risks during the healing process. Carefully follow our aftercare instructions and you’ll be fine.
  • Clean your genital piercings more frequently than you would other piercings, 3 to 6 times a day, using only approved cleaning solutions.
  • Your piercings will excrete lymph, a clear fluid that dries white, until healed. This is natural.
  • Don’t turn or slide your jewelry to clean away crusted material. Simply spray and let it soften before gently wiping it away.
  • Try not to touch your jewelry at all and do not attempt to change it out before the piercing is healed.
  • Look out for redness and swelling, yellow seepage, excess tenderness, and itching. Let us know immediately if you experience these symptoms.

Avoid Nickel At All Costs

  • Wearing jewelry that contains nickel is one of the leading reasons that the body rejects a piercing.
  • Most people are allergic to it and what can manifest as an extreme infection is often catalyzed by an allergic reaction first.
  • At Koi we use the best quality materials for our piercings, including three shades of gold, which is ideal as an initial piercing metal for its natural antibacterial properties.
