So you're thinking of getting your nipples pierced, but you're not sure what to expect? Lucky for you, we decided to show you. Watch as our friend Leah gets hers done!
We tagged along as Leah went to see our awesome piercing professional friend James, at American Skin Art here in Buffalo, NY.
James cleans the area around Leah's nipples to make sure everything is germ-free and sanitized. Clamps are used to make sure that the nipple and skin surrounding is held steady. Leah takes a deeeeeep breath and James pushes the piercing needle through her nipple. Phew! That's it. Looks almost painless, doesn't it?!
A straight barbell is inserted into the piercing, ball ends are fastened on and James then moves onto the second nipple to repeat the process. And that's it! Brand new nipple piercings in less than one minute.
Leah's final reaction to her brand new nipple piercings is exactly the same as anyone I know who's had theirs done. "It doesn't even hurt, it's like it's not even there."
Healing Time: Typically 6-9 months for females, 3-4 months for males
Jewelry Style: 14 gauge straight barbell or circular ring
