I recently had my VCH pierced (a week ago).
I had the run of the mill experience that most ladies had on here - small pinch that went away VERY quick. Before I could finish saying "oh my god" it was done and there was no pain. Like most, it was a startling pain, that was gone and forgotten about before I even put my pants on.
However, and this is the reason for posting, I'm having some minor issues and I want your opinion on it! While being examined, the piercer stated that he could see a lot of blood vessels around my hood, and said that I might have some bleeding.
So I did do some research and found a female piercer that is reputable around my way. She was super cool, told me stories of other vch piercings she did and even did the qtip test on me but when she pierced me she gave me a surface piercing. its completely above the hood, my hood is TINY as you can see and she even said its just big enough blah blah ...when she showed me i loved it as at the shop i didn't even realize it was off...even now i do not mind at all where it is!
I went to Splash of Color in East Lansing, MI, which is a pretty reputable establishment and it was where I got my nose pierced a couple years ago. I did the q-tip test and wasn't sure if I had enough room but I made an appointment anyway.
My piercer was Renee and she was perfect. She answered all my questions, always made sure I was comfortable, and kept the conversation light. She put me at ease and after taking measurements and showing me the marks, it was done!
Even though I've had my nose and eyebrow pierced I was terrified but it was over so quickly!
Hey, so I'm thinking of getting a VCH piercing, I've done a fair bit of research already but have a few questions.
My labia majora are quite large, I have a very small inner labia and my clit is very small and so is my hood. I've done a Q tip test and I believe I have just enough hood to get pierced.
So my questions are, as I have large outer lips my clit sits quite far back, therefor would the piercing be visible? I've been looking for pictures of people with the same anatomy as me with this piercing but can't seem to find any. Everyone has visible clits/ hoods.
Hi! I am new to this and I wanted to show a picture to see if it looks right, I was so nervous and I need feedback, like good feedback. I am one of those girls that freak out easily, I just wanted to know if it looks like it's supposed to! I am 20 years old and have been in the same relationship with the same boy for almost four years and I wanted to spice things up;) so I went on a shopping trip and came home with this! We're both excited to have sex once it heals! Tell me what y'all think! Please, again, only serious comments only!
I am sharing this story for all the girls who wants to get pierced - to warn them, to learn as much as possible about all the procedure and the studio reputation, including consulting the piercing with the piercer to check their professionalism, before the piercing, rather than learning that sth went wrong afterwards.
I have had my VCH piercing done in Glasgow Blancolo studio. Not only that a lady pierced me much more towards one side of the hood, she has had done it in the middle of the way, so that there was not enough of the skin to support piercing. My piercing was wrongly positioned.
Soooo I just got the VCH piercing (vertical clitoral hood piercing) so I thought I would share my story. I went to the piercing experience (in atlanta). They had the best reviews on yelp. I called a week before and asked all the annoying questions that I’m sure they are used to. When I got there, the guy at the counter was really nice. He answered all of my questions. He showed me all of the different types of jewelry. They did explain that I would first have to be fitted. So my piercer came out and brought me in to be fitted. She had a seat that looked something like a chair at the doctor.
I had my VCH done about two months ago. I was very nervous but once I've made up my mind to do something, it's being done. It hurt less than my labret and was only tender to touch for a week or so. It's now 2 months later and it seems to have dropped a lot and I'm hoping it's just stretched from the weight of the bar rather than growing out. I love it and I really don't want to lose it!! It was pierced as 12 gauge and I have a replacement bar in titanium on it's way to hopefully solve the problem.
1- go to a reputable shop! You should take the time and put in the effort to 'interview' your piercer. Ask questions BEFORE you decide on the piercing. If the piercer acts offended at your asking questions- go somewhere else. Piercers should want their customers to be as well informed and comfortable as possible.
2- have a consultation! Make sure that you have the proper anatomy (most of us do) to accommodate a VCH piercing. You can do the "Q-tip test" at home- but because all women are so different, it makes more sense to have a professional do this.
3- plan ahead a bit!
Unfortunately in NYC, there are absolutely no certified APP members. However I always go to Sacred Tattoo and get pierced by Starr! She is the absolute epitome of a terrific piercer who knows her stuff!
I stepped in one friday evening on August 9 2013. The day before I came to Starr and just asked for a consultation (to see if my anatomy was suitable for a VCH). So as a word of advice: you can always pop in for a consultation!! Was I super nervous? YES!! Im getting stabbed in my lady parts for god's sake!
