Having had my PA for well over five years now, it was time to take the plunge and get the apadrayva. It has been something I have wanted now for some time but have lacked the courage to go the extra step. Since discovering this website and having read the personal experiences of others who have had this piercing, the decision to take the next step was made easier and better informed.
My fist experience with a piercer was when I had my nipples done and the pain I experienced that day has never left the back of my mind and has unfortunately become the point of reference for me.
last year, 2012, I decided that I wanted an apadrayva so I went to a place on Long Island, and there was some pain, but by the time I processed it, the piercing was over. I had a 10ga rod.
I've had it for several months and at that point, it still hadn't healed. I've taken it out several times and putting it back in was a challenge. I couldn't wait to stretch but i had to wait a long time.
So one time while swimming, the bead fell out and the rod came out.
Well yesterday at work I made up my mind that I wanted to get an appy. I had been on here all day at work reading all the different user stories about this piercing and decieded it was for me. After work I went to the place where I get all my piercings, spider bite in Manchester and told them what I wanted. The woman behind the counter was excited for me that I wanted to get such an intense piercing. When it came time to get pierced, I just hopped onto the table and got myself ready.
First off, what an amazing experience! I got to Infinite Body Piercing around 4:30PM today. After explaining what I wanted to the counter-person, I was greeted by Kellan, one of Elayne's recommended guys. I had explained that I was the guy e-mailing him a million questions and he laughed. He asked if another piercer Kali could sit in on the procedure and I happily obliged. He explained that he would be inserting the needle through my PA hole and lining it up with his marking. I had already marked the spot ahead of time while erect and he adjusted it accordingly.
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.
