TMI time! Who doesn’t love TMI?
Well, I didn’t know where else to go with this, so I figured that since the bee was such a lovely mixture of ladies that surely someone might know a thing or two about this.
A few weeks ago my friend showed me a picture of a Christina piercing, also known as a Venus. This sorta sparked my interest into looking into other piercings, and I stumbled upon the vertical hood piercing. I was instantly into it and I am pretty excited about the thought of bedazzling my private parts while also increasing sensitivity.
However, all the photos I saw were of women with vaginas where the inner lips were visible from the outside. For lack of a better term, “outies”. Mine is a super “innie”, and I am worried that I may be lacking the equipment needed to get it.
So now I am looking for advice from people who have them done or know someone that has it done.
Is it possible on my anatomy?
What is the pain like? I have a pretty decent tolerance. I have had a few other piercings, including surface piercings on my collar bones… definitely the worse, but I barely flinched. (which unfortunately JUST rejected.)
Healing time? How long until I can “try it out”?

Have you looked into what happens to those holes during childbirth? I can imagine things get stretched in a very uncomfortable way!

I had a vertical hood piercing (took it out when I got pregnant). Your lips don’t factor in to a hood piercing, so I’m not sure if you are thinking of a different piercing, or just don’t have the correct terminology. The best way to know if it will work with your anatomy is to go to a reputable piercing shop and ask! For what it’s worth, it was one of the least painful and fastest healing piercings I’ve had done. I loved having it and was sad to take it out.

@crayfish: I will probably take it out when I am ready for kids, so it will just be scar tissue at that point.
@abbylyn: I just mean that the photos that I saw the women had definite hoods, as where I don’t have as much of one. I saw a photo of the q-tip test and they had the whole end of it in a woman’s hood and I am worried that I won’t be able to get one. I’m glad it heals quickly though!

@echapman: I just googled it and all of the results that showed up the women have definite innies. Go have a google. Ick I don’t think I would be showing a q-tip into my clit. ouchies lady-bro! Go in for a quick consult! I had to have one when I was going to get my nipples pierced.

@Little_Hedgy: Ack, I was on tumblr and various piercing websites before… now I have a better idea! Thanks!
Also I am jealous. I have yet to get my nipples done. FH is very conservative and so I don’t want to overwhelm him haha. He doesn’t even like nail polish. I have no idea what he sees in me.

I’ve had once for the past 7 years, me and my best friend were going to get matching tattoos but could agree on a design so we went and got VCH piercings together!
most professional pierces are very skilled in working with people in all shapes and sizes, and will most likely recommended a way in which they can accommodate you. I know of few people who have have had curved bar bells instead of straight in VCH piercings for fit and comfort.
Pain wise it was no different to an ear piercing, in fact it was probably easier as the tissue down there is softer. It felt a bit strange for about a week, and the I pretty much forgot about it. Due to being softer and more blood vessels in that area the healing time is much faster than ears or other places. My piecer also so used a numbing gel before hand, and it felt like a sharp pinch when the needle went through.
i don’t even know I have it anymore, but I love the look of it. I don’t think it heightens sensation at all though, so don’t expect the ground to shake the first time you ‘try it out’ lol, it’s just a bit exciting to begin with really.
just make sure you research who will be doing the piercing and thathey’rey have experience in it and you will be fine 🙂

@echapman: I haven’t done it quite yet! I’m keep chickening out lol. You are so much braver than I getting your lady business pierced! My pain tolerance is super super low 🙁

@echapman: Just so you know, there is also a risk of decreased sensitivity. It isn’t all rainbows and butterflies, I assure you. A friend of mine has one.

@echapman: I don’t have it, but a friend of mine does an she swears it didn’t hurt at all.

@Splodge2003: Yay! You are making me definitely want to get one. I am definitely going to have my girl check me out and when I do I am going to ask about the numbing gel and if I can bring my own if I need to. I know the increase in sensitivity is either hit or miss, but it’s a plus if it happens! Luckily I mostly want it because I think they’re pretty.
@Little_Hedgy: I plan to go in the next few weeks to get it done! If it is horrible I will tell you haha.
@MrsPanda99: I have heard about that in clit piercings, but less so on the hood. I think a lot of it is caused from it being harder to “get to” or going to someone who didn’t get the placement exactly right. The place I am going to is very, very nice and the people who work there are very professional. I am sure that if there are any issues with my anatomy they will send me on my way. Thanks for the warning, though! I’d be pretty torn up if my fun button stopped working.

I had a vertical hood piercing done. FAR less painful than my nipples actually – probably because it was just one piercing instead of two, but the healing time was much faster as well. I’ve had nipples (twice), ears and the vertical hood done. I am very much an innie with atiny hood – I’m half asian, and I’ve got that standard itty bitty parts thing going on. Yay for Mom’s genes! Personally, I think it looks WAY better on small parts than large, but that’s my biased opinion.
So, here’s my take on it – with the 5 minute wonder guy, the piercing was fun. It’s also nice if your guy is on the smaller side and there just isn’t a whole lot going on. However, if your guy lasts more than 15 minutes, or is a bit on the more…vigorous side, there’s going to be some seriously painful bruising afterwards. Even when I tried the curved ones, after about 20 minutes of heavy action, it HURT. There are serious potential risks, I didn’t have any problems, but it’s certainly something to consider.

I got it done… I LOVE it!! I’ve hard it for 9 years!
im not going to lie… It’s a painful experience but only lasts seconds!!
I haven’t experienced any decreased sensitivity down there… If anything I find that it has increased sensitivity down there I absolutely love it LOL

I have a VCH.
(Had one since I was 18 – and it’s still there. FH really likes it)
Didn’t really hurt. Actually my ears hurt more (but then I’m weird)
I like it and never had any issues with it – decreased feeling, painful after less than gentle sex- nothing like that.
Same as what everyone else said – go to someone who knows what they are doing, not a piecing you want to go wrong

@MariContrary: Yay for itty bitty parts! That makes me feel better because I was afraid I’d have nothing to pierce bahaha. I keep reading how to check to see if you are able to get one, and it’s like “pull back your hood”… and I’m like pull back my… wait, there is like nothing there. Is mine broken? Hahaha.
However, I am a little worried now because FH is pretty “blessed”… as in it took us 15 minutes to get it in the first time blessed and he can pretty much go forever (which is not always a plus.), so I hope I don’t have to take it out.
@mallo: Thanks! It’s good to read all these good experiences… especially after watching youtube reaction videos where girls are making whale mating calls and nearly passing out while getting it done. I was a tad bit worried.
@Nickig_4: Yes! Finally someone with increased sensitivity. There is hope for me yet!
