I stretched from 4g to 2g two months ago and within a few days I got some swelling around the piercing... After a couple of weeks it didn't go away so I went back to having a 4g ring again. Since then the swelling really hasn't gone down much and I'm not sure what to do. The swelling is only on one half of the exit hole piercing, not all of it. It doesn't hurt and I've been doing SSS on and off. Any advice at all?
Ps: For those who ask I have tried to fill out my profile several times but when ive clicked save it comes up with an error.
I had my PA redone about 7 weeks ago since I wasn't completely happy with the placement of the original. The second time bled waaaaaaay more than the first but stopped after 3-4 days. Healing very nicely right now with no complaints. I had it placed with about 7/8" from the urethra so there would be plenty of skin available to do some big stretching.
Once I begin stretching (especially to bigger gauges) should I expect to be using smaller diameter rings?.....will the distance from the piercing to urethra decrease as I stretch? Right now I have a 10ga 7/8" circular barbell.
I recently started wearing this 6 gauge circular barbell and I love it. I just upgraded with two bigger balls and it feels awesome. I was originally pierced Jan 2015 and it has been a great ride so far! If you are thinking about getting a genital piercing, you absolutely should go for it. I have not met a single person on Tribalectic who regrets getting pierced. The only regret is not doing it sooner.
So I had thought about getting a PA for a year prior to getting it in March or May of 2014. I had a fascination with it and thought it might be fun to do something exotic. I thought I did enough research to fully grasp what I was getting myself into. Sure I had a friend or two tell me to not get it, but I thought they were just scared of adventure. Plus I read a lot of very, very positive experiences; could find very little negative ones.
In true tribe fashion I thought I would leave details of my experience so far as yours were invaluable to me in getting to this point.
After contemplating and researching for quite a few years, a couple of hours ago I eventually got over my nerves and apprehension and drove into Manchester to see if I had the balls to actually go through with it.
After looking like I was casing the joint and doing numerous laps of the block I eventually took a deep breath and walked into Holier than Thou.
I wanted a PA for a really long time now but never got around to actually taking the plunge. Well yesterday after months of contemplation and research I finally got my dick pierced and I'm so happy I did!
I found a really great place in town to get it done, Mauve Montréal, and the piercer Pat was a real pro. I felt totally comfortable and informed throughout the whole experience. It honestly hurt, a lot, but it was only temporary.
I've been bleeding a lot since yesterday but that's to be expected.
Kind of did it on a whim. met a guy who had one and couldn't stop asking about. He recommended a very well know shop in Seattle. I decided not to do too much research because I knew if I did I would end up chickening out. When I arrived to the shop I spoke to the piercer and told Him that I wanted to get it over with and ask talk about everything we finished. He showed me some jewelry and said he always recommends a curved barbell because he felt it was easier for healing. He also recommended either an 8 gauge or 6 gauge. I decided to go big no idea why lol.
Hi all, sorry for the long post, but want to share my story.
I think my first encounter of a PA piercing was an episode of "The Word" on channel 4 in the 90's.
Ive always been interested in body piercings and decided a long time ago that it was probably the next logical step after having my nipple pierced. After experiencing the apparent most painful piercing a man can have how bad can a PA be ?
Im one of those that can make my mind up I want to do something, then spontaneously at the right time just do it! that way I can't dwell on it and work myself up about it.
So I got my pa yesterday. I love it. There's been a little blood very little pain. I want to ritual evolution in Ashland Oregon, chari the officer is amazing she really knows he's stuff I should recommend her to anyone. She passed me with a 10ga. needle and stretched me to 8ga. got an 8ga. circular bar bell titanium, it looks and fells great. I did my sss this morning it looks a lot better now and is not bleeding at the moment, hopefully that lasts.
I just want to thank everyone who has shared there experience here, it reAlly helped me to through with my pa.
