What you need to know before getting Nipple Piercings
How is nipple piercing pain?
As we already mentioned in our article most painful piercings ranking, the nipple piercing is one of the piercings that cause the most pain. And although it is a very popular piercing for both men and women, it is also one of the most painful because we cannot forget that it is a very sensitive area.
Even so, it is important to comment that when we talk about the pain, it always depends on and varies from person to person since many will say that it hurts a lot and others that it does not. Besides, in this type of piercing the sensitivity of the nipples also influences a lot for pain.
Nipple piercing aftercare and healing process
One of the most important aspects when doing any piercing is the cleaning and taking care to ensure good healing. Specifically, the most important thing when you do the nipple piercing is to keep the area around it clean to prevent it from becoming infected.
It is important to note that nipple piercings usually take approximately 6 to 8 weeks at least to heal properly. In addition, this healing will be influenced by the activity you perform, the sensitivity of your nipples, or by the simple fact of the rubbing of clothing.
It is recommended that after 4 or 5 hours of having done the piercing, you remove the bandage very carefully and wash it very delicately since the piercing is very recent.
During the next month, it will be necessary to clean the piercing once a day using an antibacterial cleanser to prevent it from becoming infected. During these cleanings it is recommended to wet the piercing before putting the cleaning soap and to apply it, you must rub it on your hands until the foam is generated and then put it on top of the piercing. You should let this foam stay inside the piercing to really take effect and heal it perfectly.
When these first weeks have passed, you can limit the piercing cleaning routine once every two or three days approximately, although it is recommended to do it during the following months.
Another of the best practices you can do to promote healing is to use a saline solution to encourage healing of the piercing. This cure is recommended to be done once or twice a day and above all, you should use a solution without odors or dyes and you should dilute it in water to disinfect and deflate the piercing.
Finally, you should not forget that for a correct cure it is recommended, above all, to be very careful with the clothes you use. It is suggested not to use very tight clothing or fabrics that can easily get caught.
Nipple piercing jewelry: rings, bars, and more!
One of the decisions that you will have to make when you are going to have a nipple piercing is whether you want to use a ring, or what is known as a “barbell” piercing. One of the most popular options is ring-style jewelry, although if you are a person who performs contact sports, the “barbell” option will be better since there is less chance that these can be pulled.
Also, you should take into account that the jewel you are going to put on will depend on the size and shape of your nipple and therefore, it is best to consult with the specialist in the piercing shop which jewel is best suited to you.
As for nipple jewelry, another of the big questions is whether the same person can change the piercing. The most recommended thing is that you do not do it yourself and go to a professional piercing studio to make the change, in this way, you can also make sure that the piercing is well healed and check for any sign of infection.
The sexual benefits
And to finish this article, we want to comment on one of the biggest questions that many women ask themselves: what are the sexual benefits of nipple piercing?
A nipple piercing for both men and women provides great visual and sexual benefits. Among them, the greater sensitivity provided by nipple piercing stands out, because this sensitivity can produce great sexual pleasure.
On the other hand, it is important to emphasize that not only playing and touching the piercing produces sexual benefits but that the piercing itself can become a very sexual visual stimulus for many people.
In both cases, nipple piercing increases sexual desire and can make it easy to achieve a more pleasant sexual relationship.
