Hi everyone! So I got pierced this page Saturday evening at Prix in West Hollywood on the Sunset strip. I had a nipple (re)pierced there a few years back and was pleased with their service (note: I have subsequently taken out the nipple ring). While they have had a bit of turnover in their piercing staff, I absolutely loved Stephanie who did my PA.
For the initial piercing, I got a 3/4" 6 gauge curved barbell. As everyone has written on this forum, the insertion of the tube was not to agreeable and the actual piercing was more like a short sting.
About five weeks ago I had a new PA inserted. Yesterday I went back to get a larger gauge PA. Having had problems before with spraying piss I decided to go for a barbell this time. Getting the larger gauge inserted was pretty painful, but worth it as it looked really good - see the photo. I also came home with a new ring and ball of the new larger gauge.
Almost from the word go the ball at the front of the bar slipped inside my piss hole and became pretty painful.
Well, I finally did it. My 11/16" gauge monster screwball ring finally came in the mail after a very long wait. I had been swinging a 5/8" gauge ring for about a year and really wanted to see and feel what an 11/16 would be like. I've played with some stretching and had the 11/16 in and out for a few days, but put it in this morning and think I will wear it comfortably all day. It's heavy with a nice swing. If I can figure out how to post pictures I'll take some and add them.
...a real PA afficianado
When I was 14 years old my mother took to me to get my tongue pierced since I had been obsessed with the idea of doing that since I was about 12 or 13. After I got my tongue pierced and my mom got hers done, the piercer had mentioned during our sessions that he had 14 piercings on his dick and balls and that he was willing to show my mother. Well she could tell I was curious and in a non perverted way so she asked if he'd be comfortable showing me and he was. That did it for me. I was hooked from that moment.
day0 - piercing day
After about 3 months making my mind up and reading your experiences here - I wanted to share for others. When the shop first did my paperwork and showed me their proposed 19mm jewellery I said it was nowhere near big enough for me and what I wanted. So I went away and ordered my own.
Today, with my bar in their autoclave - milling about in the shop for 10 mins waiting my turn was difficult combined with a screamer in the room before me! However I was determined to do it.
I am circumcised and want to stretch out to 8-10 mm so I wanted a deep placement.
Not quite sure exactly how long I've desired a PA, but it's definitely been a few years.
On December 28th, 2013 I put all of my hesitations aside and decided to get it done. After circling the parking lot 3 times and sitting in my car for another 15 minutes, I forced myself to walk into the shop. Once inside, I honestly felt at ease. Filled out some paperwork, waited for a few minutes and next thing you know, I was in the chair.
My piercer happened to be training a tattoo guy on the art or piercing, asked if he could sit in to observe and I agreed.
So on the 11/01/14 I final went ahead and got my Prince Albert and just for the record I'm 20 and am not cut. I've been interested in genital piercings for probably a good year now and took my first plunge into the world of genital mods last year in May with a set of traditional Hafadas (which are now stretched to 6g).
The Hafadas where a great starting point I felt and after having them done I really wanted a 'proper' genital piercing.
So on 12/29/13 I headed out for my Prince Albert piercing. I had thought about this for at least two years and it was time. Showed up, did the paperwork, and picked out an 8-gauge 3/4" curved barbell. It was time for the deed. Drop the pants, a few markings, a receiving tube, WHOOA!! and it's all done. Did the glove trick and headed for home. Only had slight blood crusties for 3 days, followed by odd pains here and there from everything healing. On day 5, I was ready to lose my mind from being completely out of commission sexually. I rubbed one off very carefully.
Had a PA several years ago, but removed it as taking a piss standing was messy! Missed the look and feel of it and got a new piercing on the 3rd of January this year. Couldn't believe how quickly it healed and love the look and feel. Will probably quickly move onto a thicker ring before moving on to a curved barbell. Also keen to stretch my scrotum and have been searching for weights. They arrived the same day as I got re-pierced. The joint feeling is unreal. I love hearing the PA clink against the weights as I walk commando (at least for the next couple of weeks).
After having the 2Ga. ring for 6 months it was time to go bigger so I ordered a 0Ga. CBR I tried several times over the course of 6 weeks to install it and all I got was pain and there was no way it was going in. I decided to get a 0Ga. curved taper to help out and planned on leaving that in for a day to help get things loosened up, to my surprise when I put the taper in it fell right out the other side! So back in with the taper and followed it with the CBR and no pain or problems at all. This is the first time I had to use a taper on my PA.
