Background: I am uncircumcised and I have had two genital piercing so far. I had an Apadravya that didn’t heal on the top due to my foreskin pushing on it. Six months ago, I got a 8G PA but it developed scar tissue and didn't heal. It was placed poorly, off center, and below the triangle. I was sad to see it go despite living with the pain. I enjoyed the PA way more than the Apadravya. So here I was, with a hole on the center of my penis and now scar tissue on the bottom from a failed PA. All I have left is one side on my penis that could be used.
I was pierced midst of March this year by a doctor who is an ER surgeon in Germany with a 3mm titanium ring. In my fourth week we changed the 3mm to a 4mm titanium ring and it went effortless and without pain. The whitish secretion, which I believe is dead mucous tissue didn’t stopped until I was in the eleventh week of my healing process after using a light cortisone cream which the doctor had recommended to use for a few days. Bending the ring to the left or right side stopped to be painful perhaps around the same time.
You'll see from my previous posts that I recently up gauged from an 8g to a 6g in my PA. The damn thing (horseshoe barbell)then fell out and I had to have it re-tapered to 4mm 3 days ago and fitted with a CBR.
The piercing is comfortable and does not hurt at all. However my dick was very swollen yesterday morning when I woke and still is now 3 days after the stretch.
There is some shedding of skin on my dick head, but no actual pain.
I first want to thank all of you for your excellent posts. Going through with a decision to get a PA seems to be easier with the wealth of knowledge and experience that you all have provided - many thanks.
I do not have any piercings or tattoos. I read an article about PAs in a magazine and thought "I should get one!" and that was 5 days ago.
I went to a shop yesterday and found the place to be clean and organized. The piercing artist was incredible and has an apradrayva and a number of other piercings.
For the last who-knows-how-long I have been toying with the idea of getting a P.A., and as my 29th birthday approached, I thought, "What better way to celebrate?" Having done much research over the last year, and having browsed the Piercing Experiences dedicated to P.A.'s, I felt pretty ready to take the plunge.
I researched a local shop - Evolved Body Art in Columbus, OH - and found one of the piercers who seems to specialize in the care necessary for doing such intimate piercings as genital piercings.
So, I went through the painful trauma of having my 8g PA stretched to 6g with a lovely 4mm horseshoe barbell fitted.
Then the damn thing fell out, even though I tightened the balls every time I showered and pee'd.
There is no way I can get it back on my own even with a 4mm taper I bought. It just hurts too much and makes me feel sick when I try to push the last length of the taper through.
I've got a 2mm cbr in to keep it open and will go the the piercer at the weekend, as this is when they are available for genital piercings.
I'm 24 and I got my PA a month ago.
I am uncircumcised, and was pierced at 8g 3/4" with a curved barbell. I had thought about getting a PA a year ago but did nothing about it. It was more like a throw away thought. Then a month ago that thought came back and I talked to my girlfriend about it. She said if I wanted to then I should go and do it, and that she thought it would like nice. So 3 days later, I walked out of the piercing pallor with some new jewels.
It bled the first 3 days, and was tender for a week, but after that, it was fine.
Just over two weeks ago I plucked up the courage to finally get a PA after years of fantasizing about it. It was pierced at a 10g and an 8g curved barbell was slid in. The piercing itself was hell, but the pain lasts for about 5 seconds and goes away.
It has been amazing! This is my first ever piercing, and I can't wait to start sizing up and start adding scrotal piercings. My goal is a 00g barbell and 5 or 6 scrotal piercings.
