There are many benefits to having your sensitive nipples pierced. Many people consider it a body-positive act and feel the advantages far outweigh the initial pain and discomfort of a piercing. Others find that the initial pain of a nipple piercing isn’t much worse than other body piercings, but healing can take a bit longer than other piercing sites. Others find that nipple piercing & nipple rings increase nipple sensitivity and make a sensitive area feel even more intense – in a good way.
Most people who enjoy nipple piercing find that with some aftercare the initial pain goes away and they are left with a beautiful piercing that they love. If you are considering a nipple piercing, there are many options to choose from. To help inspire you, we’ve put together a list of nipple piercing jewelry ideas that you can find at Sage Tattoos.
Examples of Nipple Piercing Jewelry
There are types of nipple jewelry for every style and taste. Find your favourite colour, choose your favourite animal or keep it plain and simple. It is all up to you. Here are some of our favourite nipple jewelry designs to get you started.
Heart Nipple Piercing
Show off some valentines love with a heart nipple piercing. You can find them in a barbell style with hearts on the end or go for a heart nipple shield to really show your love. A heart shield features a barbell through the outside shape of a heart that fits over your nipple – for a bit of cupid and an arrow design.
A prong celeste nipple piercing gives a bit of sparkle and shine. Choose your favourite colour and pick a size of a barbell that suits you. This type of non-dangle piercing is good for everyday wear but will still need some care, depending on how elaborate the design is. You can choose from high-quality titanium to 14k Gold – there are many options to choose from to set off those sparkling gems.
The nipple barbell is the classic nipple piercing design. You can choose from different colours, or different metals depending on your budget or taste. You can also choose between internally threaded or externally threaded designs. For more comfort, you can also go for a curved barbell design that can be left simple and plain with a ball at each end or finished with gems or shapes.
If you are considering a nipple piercing, it is strongly advised to consult with an expert before you proceed. Not all nipples are suitable for piercing and a consultation will help make sure you can get exactly what you want. You will also want to choose your style of piercing – horizontal is the most popular choice, but you can also choose vertical or both if you are into it.
It is also essential to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your piercer for your nipple piercing. It will include details regarding healing time, and about keeping the area clean and free from infection as it fully heals.
