I was hoping those of you with frenum piercings would be able to share your experiences. I'm 80% sure I'm going to get the piercing but wanted to know more about a few things.
So I have been wanting my Frenum done for several years and finally psyched myself up to do it. November 13th 2014 I had my Frenum pierced with a 10 gauge needle then they immediately stretched it to an 8 gauge. As for jewelry I opted for dark blue titanium 8g straight barbell.
Surprisingly enough the only pain was when they were inserting the jewelry. Only had about two drops of blood. It is now day 2 and I have experienced no bleeding or pain just minor swelling.
I've mad a PA before but I retired it after a while and the hole closed up and left scar tissue. I may re-pierce my PA in the future but who knows.
Anyway, I loved having a genital piercing and I wanted another! So I went to Old School in Bellingham and the piercer, Salvatore took me into the back. The piercing was very easy and it hurt about as much as my lobes did, just on my penis. I wanted the piercing to be under the scar tissue left from my retired PA.
I had wanted to have my frenum done for quite a while, and woke up one morning back in September and decided that it was time.
I made an appointment with who I felt was the best genital piercer in the city (probably in the country, too) and went to have everything measured.
We decided on a 10g straight barbell. He marked where the piercing would enter and exit and told me to go home and double check things when I was soft, and also when I had an erection.
I returned the next day and he did the piercing.
Everything happened fairly quickly.
So I just posted about the PA that I got done exactly 1 year ago, now its time to talk about my Frenum done shortly thereafter.
I loved my PA so much that I really wanted to add something else to my dick, to jazz it up even more. I got my PA in August and my girlfriend bought me my Frenum in January for my birthday. Because my PA went so well, I went to the same studio for the Frenum (And will continue going for any new piercings) Laughing Buddha Body Piercing in Upland CA with Airick as my piercer.
I always talked about getting something like this done, even considered doing the Prince Albert first. But after looking at some of the other photos and many success stories on this I gave it go. I got a !0g barbell on the lower frenum, and all I can say is wow! Im new to all this and only done my ears, so this would be my second piercing. I mostly like this for the aesthetics, but I actually got it thinking it would desensitize the area. Thats what I thought, but many people claim it actually increases sensitivity. We will have to see. This is day 2 and its looking good already!
I'm now 28 and been thinking about getting a frenum for some time now. What kept me from getting it done sooner was being afraid of the pain. One day I decided to go to a piercer I knew and just ask. I was manly concerned that I've been reading online that most piercers don't like to do frenum on uncut guys, but he insured me he is uncut too and has had one for years with no issues. He won't over what could happened with me, like the foreskin not being able to cover all the way anymore etc. I decided to go with a curved barbell so that way it could allow the foreskin to easily go over.
