I've been wanting a guiche for awhile, so today I dropped in to the piercing shop to take care of it. The actual piercing took place after I got my new 4g cbr placed in my pa and discovered that the site where I retired my right hafada isn't healed sufficiently to repierce yet.
I have the real estate down there for multiple guiches, so she made preliminary marks in two places (farthest forward and farthest back) and let me look to check my preference.
Approximately two years ago I removed my captive bead ring guiche piercing as I found it to be uncomfortable. I was disappointed as I enjoyed having the piercing but could not tolerate the discomfort as I do a lot of sitting for my job and I ride a bicycle for recreation.
A few months ago, it occurred to me that it was the ball on the ring that was causing the discomfort and that a continuous segment ring would be worth a try. I discussed this with my piercer and was advised that I would probably have no better success with a segment ring.
Overall I would say this piercing was a little more intimate however just a little less painful then the nipple. I did go for 8g needle though. I now have a 8g barbell for the next 3 months minimum. I say go for it if you are thinking about it. Thats what I did
So I contemplated getting a guiche piercing for a while and today I finally did it!
After reading several reviews I decided to go with Cold Steel in Camden, London. My piercer, David, was excellent. He was a really nice guy and was easy to talk to during the process.
I'm so pleased with the piercing itself! I was slightly concerned that I would feel it rubbing when I walk but I don't even notice it there. The process is very quick and is over before you know it. The pain was slightly more noticeable than when I got my PA pierced but it is done within a second or two.
I finally got my Guiche pierced today. The Guiche has been the one piercing that I have wanted to get done ever since my first piercing 3 years ago (nipples). I have been so hesitant to getting it even though I have gotten 2 PA's and a Frenum done (Frenum sadly retired). My biggest concern was trying to find a piercer that had a lot of experience piercing Guiche's in the midwest since this seems to be somewhat of an uncommon piercing around these parts.
I got mine pierced at 6g with a 7/8'' curved Barbell. The piercing experience its self was very good.
After years of wanting and prevarication I had a Guiche done. Iwas nervous but Sam my piercer was very professional and put me at my ease ish. However all I got was the skin sting and that was it job done. 2.4 mm gauge 19mm dia. It was a bit wide to start with and caused me a few issues, especially for some reason when out shopping with her indoors. Sam changed it to 16mm dia and what a difference, I could walk straight. Now I've had it for 3 months and I consider it a thing of beauty. Only yesterday I put an old jewelled ball in the ring. It will be stretched because yippee it has healed.
I have been intrigued by this piercing for just a couple of months after having my PA done last December. I contacted my piercer (who visits the city every now and then to do some job for his city clients)to have my guiche.
Finally, yesterday we met at his place to have it done. He briefed me of the things to know when having this (though I always research thoroughly before having anything done; my nipple, PA then this as I have learned from experience of DIY piercing)
first we discussed about placement.
I'd never been pierced before, but the guiche piercing really intrigued me. I work in an office setting, and other than regular walking, I'm not exceptionally active. I took the time to learn more about the challenges associated with the piercing and to find a highly regarded local piercer in the Kansas City area. I had an amazing experience with the piercing community in general while gathering info, and it was definitely well worth the research!
