Nipples on Breast Tissue should be pierced at the base of the nipple, but not through the aerola. Too deep and these piercings can be uncomfortable, and impossible to heal. Too shallow and they often can migrate out leaving unsightly scars. It’s important to do your research and see someone who will place these piercings correctly for you. Jewelry is most commonly a 14-10g straight or curved barbell, depending on your anatomy. While healing jewelry choices are simple, but once healed there’s a great selection of beautiful pieces you can wear. These can take up to a year to heal for some, so it’s best to be ready to be caring for these piercings for a bit.
It is not uncommon to experience the discharge or ‘crust’ with these piercings for much longer then your traditional ear piercings. A warm saline soak will help soothe them! It’s important to give them time to heal before touching or heavy play, and also be aware of the types of bras you wear during the initial healing.
