I saw an image of a T-Bar nipple piercing on a girl about two years ago and was amazed and determined to get one in my right nipple. For those who haven't come across this piercing it is a horizontal barbell through the nipple with a shorter barbell going through the front of the nipple and screwing into the horizontal bar. My nipple was 8g at the time and not fully healed and an 8g barbell was not going to be thick enough to have a another bar screwed into it. So I had to be patient and wait for the piercing to heal and then stretch it to 6g. I thought I would have to have jewellery custom made but I eventually found it online but with a 4g horizontal barbell into which shorter 10g bar was screwed. So more patience needed before I could stretch my piercing to 4g.
I was still researching trying to find out how this piercing was done or a piercer who had done one. No luck and I was pretty much resigned to abandoning my ambition. I then heard that a new studio had opened in a nearby town. Thought I'd ask there.the studio was spotlessly clean and Nathalie the piercer was delightfully friendly and though she hadn't done this piercing she felt perfectly confident about doing it. She showed me her portfolio and it was plain that she was very experienced. She said she would stretch my horizontal piercing to 4g and insert a cannula and then pierce my nipple from the front so the needle would go into the cannula. So lets go for it I said. First she wanted to autoclave the jewellery and while it was 'cooking' she she made the preparations to stretch my piercing. She used plenty of lubricant and the stretching pin and cannula slid through remarkably easily no more than mild discomfort. When the jewellery was sterilised she prepared for piercing through the front of my nipple. She explained that the thread on the shorter front barbell would have to pass through the fresh piercing which might be 'testing' but she would coat the thread with plenty of lubricant so it would slip in easily. I was expecting the needle through the font of my nipple to be pretty painful but she was very deft and fast and it was fine. she partially withdrew the needle...free from the cannula and then slid the horizontal barbell though my nipple following the cannula as she pulled that out. She was careful to have the threaded hole in the barbell correctly positionedas she screwed on the balls. Then the needle was withdrawn and the lubricated front barbellslid into the fresh piercing. This was a bit trickier than anticipated and it was quite a fiddle for her to line up the thread and socket but she got it. She cleaned me up,though there was very little blood, and held up a mirror....looked great. She asked if I'd mind if she had a picture of the piercing for her portfolio which I of couse agreed to. All in all much easier thanI had thought and relatively painless...just a liitle sore.
Nathalie Seemed pretty pleased and even offered me discount because she had a couple of pics. I was so pleased i refused that and of course gave a tip. She was great.
I've had the piercing for a while now and it's healing fine. I'm so happy with it.....well worth the wait. The pic shows my piercing with a nipple stirrup a shield and a captive ring on the ball on the tip of my nipple. Love it like this.
