It has been over 3 months since I got my PA. It has healed well and has been no problem so I figured it may be a good time to try to go up to a 6 gauge. I called my piercing shop to make sure they had something in 6 gauge in stock. The had several. Its a 2 hour drive to their shop so I wanted to make sure it wasn't a wasted trip. I looked at the jewelry , decided on a 6 gauge ring that looks like a captive bead ring but has a larger bead/ball that screws on. Off to the piercing room to get started. Removed the 8 ga. CBR and started to insert the taper. I was shocked at the pain.
So I got my piercing a little over 4 weeks ago, it was done at a 10ga Curved Barbell and I like the look of it so far I want to gauge it up eventually but im having some difficulty. When my underwear presses on the end of the piercing it causes the barbell to push back through the piercing and irritate the foreskin. I went up a length down a length no difference i'm thinking of trying a circular barbell next but I don't know if it will help. It also seems to be migrating a bit.
I found myself standing one afternoon earlier this week, Monday in fact, chatting casually with a couple of staff at Infinite Body Piercing just off South St. (Philadelphia) I had walked over to ask a few questions and frankly just to kill some time while my eyes "undilated" from the eye doc's office I had just left. I hate when they do that, dilate your eyes; and they ALWAYS do.
I've never been pierced before and I have been strongly considering a PA piercing for about two months now. After carefully reading every possible page on the Internet and on this site, I found little to nothing to discourage me from getting this piercing. Until yesterday. I found a page where someone said that a PA piercing can stretch on it's own over time. I am planning on getting pierced on Friday, April 4th but I don't want to go any larger than 8 or 10g.
First of all sorry for the picture, the scar tissue is a bit full on.
I have had my PA for a 6-7 months now!
At first i had some problems, it turns out my piercer didnt know too much about sizing and did it with a 14g. I am uncut, but my forskin isnt that loose, and by that i mean its not too tight but it doesnt cover all of the head. Unless its reeeeeeeeal cold haha
So when i got it done, my forskin rolled back over the base of the ring. My piercer told me to keep it back, indefinitely. He said as with his, once it was done it just never went back over.
I am an openly gay 24 year old college student in West Virginia. I have no tattoos and had no piercings before the PA. I have no idea why I wanted it but I did so I started doing some research on the process and aftercare and started looking for someone to do the deed as I was not about to do it myself. I had a friend who got her nipples done in the area so I found out where and attempted to contact the guy. Well he had moved so I managed to track him down by his instagram and emailed him. He said absolutely he would do it.
After wanting a PA for over 8 months, I stepped up and started researching shops to go to. When I had found one that looked suitable, not too far from my house I called them up and went straight there. The procedure itself was very quick - all over within 5 minutes and I was fully at ease after seeing my piercer unwrap the disposable tools from a fresh pack. As far as pain goes, the receiving tube was the most uncomfortable part and the actual piercing was 2, maybe 3 seconds of intense pain and it was all done.
I never thought about getting a PA, out of the blue I wanted one "midlife crises maybe" lol. I did a lot of research talked to a friend of mine who is a piercer at the hole look in anchorage, he answered all my questions. I said let's do it. He cleaned the area and swabbed my urethra and to me that was the worst pain of the whole thing. The receiving tube was no problem. He pierced me with a 10 ga curved barbell. It bleed for 1 day and stopped. I have had it for 8 days now and no problems feels like it's been there forever.
To start off with, Thank you so much to every one on here for your experiences and information. With that being said on the the experience.
So I first heard about genital piercings when I was in a Methodist day care of all places. One of my little friends told me about how his neighbor had his weenie pierced (gotta love the words we use as kids). Fast forward about 8 years to when me and a good buddy of mine were watching porn and a guy with a PA came on screen and I knew I just had to have one.
