Reposting my experience since it seems last one didn't get through.
Had two frenum barbels which i'd been keeping for a couple of months, but after finding those rather annoying (they were quite long, and i didn't really like their placement) i decided to take them out and try getting a Prince Albert.
I've been pierced at a relatively small gauge (the actual barbell gauge is G14 (1.6mm).
I can only say that I am ssssooooo happy to get a PA again!!
I had my first PA piercing in 2009 and I wore it for a couple of weeks, but then - after I took it off for about 2 hours - I couldn't put it back on the place. I visited my pierced next day but it was too late also for him. I didn't decided to be pierced again... Untill this Wednesday
Now - 48 hours after the piercer's scalpel made a second gap in my - I enjoy it fully. Small bleeding lasted till yesterdays night. Now it's almost totally healed.
So I went and had my PA re-done after taking mine out last summer. Bled a lot more than last time but much less painful!
After many years of deliberation and hours and hours of research of late, I finally decided to take the plunge and get my PA done.
I have previously had my eyebrow pierced several years ago which I removed due to surgery requirements and decided to not put it back in as closed up very quickly and to be honest, was over the piercing and just couldn't be bothered any more with it.
I have been reading tribal forums for a few months now, even venturing into the wild domains of reddit where there was many helpful and not so helpful posts there as well.
Anyhow, it went exactly as expected..
Almost a year ago(April 2015) I received my Prince Albert; since then I made 2 stretchings: after two months I passed from 10ga to 8; just before Christmas 2015 I switched to 6. This last step was a little bit more painful than the first and I had to use a dilator.
I am very happy and I have already booked 4ga, which should arrive in a few days.
Here is a picture of my last PA; 6GA.
Today was the day that I finally decided to go through with getting a Prince Albert.
I'm 26 and have been wanting this for several years now and never had enough courage to get it done. Given that I had been at uni for the last couple of days I decided that if I was out before 4pm I would go and get it done.
No appointment was needed as the studio (Absolution in Christchurch, New Zealand)had the correct jewelry in stock. I arrived, introduced myself to the piercer and the process began with a consent form.
Hello all, I am newly pierced as of Saturday (feb. 20, 2016). Been wanting it for years and found an awesome in Charlotte, NC that was within my budget. I was really surprised that it was only $40 for everything. Anyhow, the girl who did it was super professional with everything and put my mind at ease. She told me to expect blood and I did, just not the amount that I saw. She put a rubber glove over my penis with rubber band and I just soaked through the glove by the time I got home. When I carefully took glove off, blood just gushed everywhere. I thought I was going to bleed out.
Hi guys, so like a lot of stories on here I'd been considering a PA for a few years now and kind of got to a point where I was fetishizing the thought of one so I just sucked it up, told my bf I wanted one, got his permission (because we a team and this will have an effect on him too and I value his opinions), and decided to just do it. I wanted to be healed by Ptown bear week so I thought now would be the best time.
Pretty nervous because, it's a needle through my penis but was mostly ok. Very quick, the receiving tube was not that bad, maybe because I occasionally sound?
I got PA since 2012 and it's been a tough sometimes. But most of the time I loved it yeah.
The biggest problem is right now 4 years since I got it. I stretched my whole 4 months ago 6mm x 15mm which was great since the ring felt out of my pants one day. That was a signal it's time to change gauge again, so I went for 8mm x 13mm which looked so cool. I really loved how it looked. But , the ring made it soo unpleasant. It was basically so heavy my penis couldn't handle it. I coudn't sleep at night because I felt a pain down there.
So after all I put it ouf.
