Time for a change in my life.
38 years old. Had my PA since I was 21 and thought it was time for a change.
Been thinking about the Apadravya for a while and love the way it looks.
Was recently in a store and met a guy who does piercing privately so I got talking to him about the process. Cut to the chase, 3 weeks later and the day arrived for my 2 ga PA to be converted to a 10ga Apadravya with 10mm balls..
Arrived at his house and found everything set up with the final bits and pieces going through the autoclave.
I got my second apadravya today. I now have two in a row down the middle. I showed up a little earlier than planned, which was fine as I'm comfortable there. The place was busy and my piercer, Becky, was out getting food anyways. When I made the appointment, I told my piercer that another piercer, Nikki, in town was going to come watch. She was cool with that as she was friends with her for a long time. Well we waited for 30 minutes for Nikki to show up, but she never did. I guess her loss.
New to the tribe, not new to piercings. I spent a good deal of time reading on this site about the apadravya and, now that I got it, decided that I should write a report and make my contribution seeing as you helped me make my decision!
So, I decided to get an apadravya and got it last night. I'm just amazed at the experience. I was pierced (non-genital) several times by Byriah Dailey when he used to own Taurian. Ironically, when doing my research, I saw his name in another experience on here so I figured I'd try him again. I'm glad I did.
Growing up a sheletered kid from a small town in the bible belt, I never thought about getting piercings--they were for deviants (except for tasteful ear piercings on ladies). I remember being horrified when a friend in high school reported his uncle had a prince albert (I didn't know exactly what it was but he was happy to enlighten me) and a few frenum piercings.
Fast forward 20 years to last week, I am a conservative mid 30s guy with health issues that might prevent me from reaching mid 40s.
Within a matter of 6 hours decided to get it and had it done. The prep was easy and quick whole procedd took less then 15 min. No numbing agent was used, prolly a 3-10 Pain level, the worst part was the PA. The top was the easy part. The jewelry was easy didnt feel it. Quite a bit of bleeding but i guess thats expected.
Not to sore, not very much pain just a minor ache really. Honestly my Lip hurt more then this. I was very surprised.
I would defiantly recommend this to friends
Any advice on reducing healing time?
I got my apadravya six weeks ago. I was pretty nervous as I walked up to my piercer and asked for it. We went in the back and a guy being trained came too to watch. It did hurt a lot but the pain was quick and so worth it. It bled constantly the first day, twice i had to switch out gauze soaked with blood for some fresh gauze. My piercer pierced at 8g and put an 8g barbell in instead of piercing smaller then stretching so if you go the stretching route it's supposed to be more pain but less blood. after the first day it didn't bleed much, and peeing hurt for a few days.
Soooo, i had been thinking for few months about getting the Apadravya. I never gotten a piercing before, but the idea just interested me. After reading other experiences, learning about it as much as i can and working the nerve up, i finally had it done yesterday. It almost didn't happen cause the few places i went to at first said they wouldn't do it or required me to do the Pa first but i was determined!
I had my frenum pierced a few years ago and I've been interested in getting an apadravya for the past six to eight months but my shop of choice for tats and piercings is quite a long distance away so I had to wait some time to get up that way. Before getting this piercing I remember wondering about the pain and how much it was going to hurt to get done but I remembered about the frenum and that the pain was no match for how much fun and pleasure I got from it. I also got to get a kick out of telling people about it who would always say how they would or could "never do anything like that".
So after months of thinking about getting an apadravya, I finally did it last night. I've previously had a frenum and lorum piercing, but still didn't know how this would compare. I had met with numerous piercers in the Phoenix area, and decided on Ana at Halo Piercing. Ana put me at ease immediately, chatting about a variety of things while getting ready for the piercing. The intensity of the piercing was obviously a little more than the previous two piercings, mostly for the time it took to pierce the head. If I had to rate it, I would say it's a 7-8 out of 10.
