Like everyone else here Ive wanted a pa for a long time. I could just never convince myself to get it done.
While on vacation in Denver i decide there was no reason to wait any longer so i decided to go get it done. I ended up going to Sol Tribe and James was my piercer. We started talking about what jewelry i wanted and told him i wanted a CBR and he said that should be do-able. Then he asked my what gauge and i had no idea. He said he dosent like to go smaller than a 10 gauge. After looking at it i decide to do an 8 gauge. He ended up picking the 8ga 5/8 CBR.
I am a brand new member of the p.a. family! I got my p.a. a week and a half ago. I thought it was a 10 gauge but I have since ordered to 8 gauge horseshoes and they are both the same size as the one I had so I guess I started with an 8. I just swapped out my pressure fit ring with a new 8 gauge horseshoe tonight and I love it way more. For one thing, the diameter is .88 so it is bigger in circumference than my old one which really pulled my skin when I would get erect due to the stretching inside my head. Anyway, the new horseshoe feels so much better.
I'm barely into my 3rd week, and things could not possibly have gone better! My 8g x 5/8" circular BB is juggling freely in the piercing, no discomfort of any kind at any time (and I'm a very active man). In fact as of several days ago, I have to touch it to be reassured that it's still there. I Previously wore a heavy glanz ring for decades, and miss the weight and constant "presence". Wish it was compatible someway with my PA, but am already impatient to stretch the next step.
ok so i finally got a pa that I'm happy with. about three years ago i got my first pa. but the idiots placed way to far up and started me out with a 10g. i bled for over a week. and took it out at two weeks. then i went to another parlor a year or so later and i said make sure it isn't too close the tip. well they pierced me too far down. i didn't want a dolphin. i wanted a pa. it came out after a week. so now I'm in another state for grad school and finally decide to try one last time. the essentially lets me choose where i want it. and he got it spot on!
Oh man! It's finally done! I had a pa for about two days back in my early 20s. Bad experience and, because I didn't research it before I got one, I wasn't prepared for the blood. Thanks to this forum,I was MORE than prepared. I am now 36.
Went to see Brent at Avante-Garde in West Allis, WI two days ago. Just as everyone here says, the anticipation is worse than the reality. much worse! Yes, the receiving tube was more than just uncomfortable. It's was painful! I have a narrow urethra,I think, so perhaps that had something to do with it.
I got my PA done in February. I had been considering it for several years, but didn't dear it since I was afraid of the reactions from my wife. Just before Christmas I finally broke the ice and confessed to her my lomging for piercings - I've been craving piercings since I was 12 years old. As it turned out, she not only permitted me doing it, she herself told me that she would love some large tattoos.
So after only a few weeks I had a couple of days off work, and went to the local tattoo and piercing parlor, a place I had been researching and actually visited a couple of times earlier.
