I was thinking about PA for some time, and on beginning of January I went to visit my best friend in Barcelona. So I thought - this would be a perfect timing, and memories from Spain.
So I have a google-it for a while, and I find a piercer in our neighborhood. I drop him a message over facebook to check how much it cost and when I could pop-by - and he replied instantly - its 50 EUR (only!) and i can come tomorrow at 5 p.m.
So I start to talk with my friend and he was really surprised he said that he could never guess that I would like PA.
Made the jump to a 00Ga. ring yesterday, it took a few days of slowly working a taper in the hole to stretch it and when the taper was finally in all the way I just left it in for about an hour and pushed the ring on thru. It's been 24 hours now and I have had no soreness or any other issues, I think this is as big as I am going to go with it.
My girlfriend decided to go ahead and got her hood pierced. It was successful, and we both loved it.
It inspired me to look into getting a PA.
On New Years Day, I went to talk to the piercer that did my girl, and he answered all my questions, and relieved all my fears.
My biggest fear was bleeding, and he said that he should be able to do it so that there we be very little bleeding.
So, I went for it.
He asked me what I had in mind for jewelry, and I asked him to decide according to my anatomy.
After thinking about it for about a month,I decided to get a PA and after learning all I could about it, I chose to start at 6 ga in order to bypass all that stretching.
I had it done by Pat Pierce at Mauve Montreal Piercing, he is one of the rare APP (Association of Professional Piercers)-certified piercers and there is a good reason for that, he is amazingly professional, very aware of the need for diligent sterile procedure and changes his gloves frequently.
So, in late October, having fancied the idea for years, and having received encouragement from some wonderful people on here (‘You’re over-thinking it’ particularly struck home), I went into a piercing shop to get a PA. I’d mulled over where to get it done, and website-wise, this place looked good, and the least intimdating. I met a lovely man who talked me through it. Sadly, he couldn’t do it then because he would have to order the ring and that would take 2 to 4 weeks.
On January 3rd, I finally got pierced, after about 3 years of researching and being too afraid to get the piercing I finally “manned-up” and got the prince albert. (If you have been thinking about a PA piercing, DO NOT let the fear of the pain stop you. I swear the maintenance and cleaning of the healing wound is more daunting after the fact.) I was in Atlanta, GA visiting family for the holidays and researched the local piercers and found Lou at The Piercing Experience.
I've got a question about my 00G PA
After wearing my 00G for 4 months now I've noticed it bleeds when I masterbate after a while without it (I don't always take it out). It bleeds from the inside, so I don't know if there are any cuts or nicks.
When I've got the piercing in and masterbate, no problem.
What could be the problem?
I'm wanting to make the jump from 0g to 00g but I'd like a 00g titanium curved bar. I can't seem to find any, can someone point me in the right direction please!
