It's been about a week now since I have gotten my VCH pierced. I went to Jeff's Tattoo in Minnesota, and the piercer there (Jeff) has been piercing for over 30 years, Jeff was also one of the men to invent The Clamps used for many piercings such as belly button!!! I was automatically comfortable and trusting with him.
Other than my VCH, i have my belly button and nose pierced, which were both a breeze ( but turns out both were MUCH more painful than a VCH), so i wasnt afraid of getting my my new piercing at all.
Before getting this peircing, i actually visited this site to read about experiences and put myself at ease, and finally i was ready.
I recommend doing your research, as i did, i decided that i wanted a 14G barbell and a vertical piercing if possible.
When i arrived at the tattoo parlor, i was greeted by Jeff, signed all the forms and was quickly brought back to a private room. From there i explained to him what type of jewelry i wanted, and that i wanted a vertical piercing, only to find out that in his experience, there are ONLY VCH piercings. Jeff highly recommended to never ever get a horizontal piercings for the basic fact that our anatomy downstairs is positioned vertically. He told me that it is a myth that some woman's anatomy is too small for VCH piercings Anyone can get a VCH piercing!Jeff told me that in his 30 years of piercing, he can count the HCH piercings he has done on one hand.
I shorty found out that this is a fact,anyone can get a VCH because i was "too small" for the traditional hood VCH piercing procedure. Unlike most VCH piercings, mine had to be done using a clamp, which i was partly thankful for because it numbed the area a little.
Jeff told me to take a deep breath, and by the time i exhale i would be pierced. I had exhaled and had no idea he even pierced me, it was THAT painless. the only pain i felt was after he released the clamp and put the jewelry in, but even that was a slight, very slight sting.
Overall i am very happy with my piercing and i love it!!! after the swelling went down, my piercing is visible without spreading my legs, which i like a lot
I hope this helps anyone that wants a VCH, anyone can get one!!! And also for anyone who is afraid of the pain, there really isn't any!!! Good luck to those who want this piercing, and if anyone tells you your anatomy isn't right for the piercing, go to a new place! technically mine wasn't 'right' but here i am with my VCH and i love it!
