I've been experiencing some discomfort and stinging over the last few days. I went to see my piercer and he recommended replacing my ring with a larger circumference so we did. It feels better instantaneously. I can't wait to get an erection now! I wanted to move to an 8G, but he was out and didn't recommend stretching it for a few more weeks. He's the expert, gave me my new ring for free and I decided to have both my nipples redone! (Which hurt way more than the PA did, and WAY more than I remembered from the last time!)
Happy piercing everyone.
All right, so I put my experience going in to get my PA earlier last week. I'm on Day 7 now. The first 2 days were fine…then day 3 and 4 got a bit rough! why? well, something you might want to keep an eye on!
so I 'embiggened' the picture and drew a diagram. I had gone back to my piercer…all is good…I'm just a little behind on healing because of what I call a skin tag. When pierced, there is a little bit of skin around the piercing that normally just dries up and falls off or is re-absorbed into your body.
That is, unless it gets stuck to the jewelry and pulls! OUCH!
I haven't had any tenderness since the two week mark. I decided today to get a larger gauge as well as a larger diameter CBR today. I found out that my piercer doesn't charge for jewelry changes, if you buy the jewelry there. So, I decided to let her do it.
My 10G had been what I consider loose for over a week. It moved very easily on its own and pain free during this time. So, I figured I would take the next step. With the taper in at 8G, I felt what I can only describe as snugness. There was no pain. I had it done about an hour ago. There is really no discomfort at this point.
It is coming up to 6 months now since I got my PA, so I thought it called for an update.
It has been sooo awesome having a PA, best decision ever, and half a year later, I don't regret it one bit.
The healing was easy, and since then it has been fun stretching up and trying different sorts of jewellwry.
I am now at 2G, having started off at 6G. When I first got the piercing I didn't ever think I'd be so close to 0G. Infact I was quite keen to stay at 6G, but how that all changed. Loving the chunkyness, and weight of the ring.
As many of you, I've batted the idea around for years of getting a PA. I'll do it... no I won't... I'll do it.... Why would I want to hurt my poor dick.
Well.... At 28 years old, after talking to a few guys that have them and reading tons and tons of experiences here, I made the call. I went to Infinite Body Piercing in Philly on Friday, 11/28. I was messaging a friend on the way who kept me stoked and confident. So I pass the shop, park my car, and walk to the door. I always had the impression that tattoo and piercing places were dark holes in the wall. I've learned differently!
Okay, so I warned a few of the new frenum piercings that they would want a PA! Finally got mine yesterday! (today?) Anyway…it was the day before Turkey Day. I wanted to get it for my Birthday on the 17th, but as would have it…life got in the way.
Was able to go to my piercer Rodger Rabbit @ Ancient Adornments (HIGHLY recommend him for anyone in the Los Angeles area). As I walked in the shop…it seemed busier than usual. Well, being the night before Thanksgiving—they were closing early and apparently EVERYBODY needed to get their piercings done!
Day 5 - Any thoughts on swelling? I'm on day 5 and now experiencing swelling around the bottom of my dick where the piercing is? I'm soaking it a couple times a day and everything seems like it is healing well.
See the image attached on what I'm asking about? Is it normal or should I be concerned?
Other than that, all is AWESOME.
So i am 11 days in. I will say that its been an interesting 11 days. I did a lot of research prior to committing to my PA. I have no regrets and am happy that i made this choice. I made appointment with Elayne Angel to do my piercing while she was touring through Philadelphia. I paid more than double what the shop was charging to have her do it but after research and learning i was, and still am, happy to have paid more to insure a great outcome.
