This piercing requires a skilled piercer, as this is a very small, dense piece of tissue. The initial jewelry used is usually a ring such as a captive or BCR, or a curved barbell much like an eyebrow ring. This piercing is usually done at 18 or 16 gauge.

This piercing takes 3-9 months or longer to heal, usually about 6 in most cases though. Be sure to ask your piercer for proper cleaning and care instructions!
