Female Body Piercing – Nipple Piercing
Nipple piercing is an increasingly popular form of female body piercing. This type of piercing is not only aesthetically pleasing, but considered to be physically pleasing also, as it is known to increase the sensitivity of the nipple, thus increasing the sensual and pleasurable sensations felt when the area is stimulated.
Another factor that makes pierced nipples worth considering is the feelings of empowerment many women gain after having a nipple pierced. Nipple piercings are also one of the few types of female body piercing that are very easily concealed, making them that much more private, personal and exciting.
The piercing is done through the base of the erect part of the nipple. Care should be taken to ensure the piercing does not penetrate the areola, as this can lead to a breast tissue infection known as mastitis. Piercing is done with a needle, a clamp is often used also, but is completely optional. Any angle can be pierced through the nipple and one nipple can also accommodate multiple piercings.
The jewellery used for nipple piercing is typically barbells or rings, but the use of most types of jewellery is possible. Any rings used should be of a large enough diameter to allow for initial swelling, otherwise irritations and other complications may occur. Jewellery such as nipple shields can be an excellent way to showcase the breasts, whilst still easily concealed beneath clothing or lingerie.
A concern many women have with this type of female body piercing is potential issues with breast feeding. So it is worth noting that as long as all jewellery is removed from the area prior to feeding, breast feeding with nipple piercings is completely safe.
Inverted nipples can be corrected and kept in an erect position with the help of a nipple piercing.
As with any female body piercing, always ensure your piercer is an experienced professional, and make sure any questions and concerns you may have are discussed prior to piercing.
