What Are Some of the Most Popular Kinds of Body Piercings?


There are so many body piercings that you can have and it is sometimes difficult which one to choose. However, it is also important to note that not everyone can get the body piercing they prefer due to limits in that person’s anatomy. Each individual anatomy is unique and one body piercing may not be feasible to another person. The important thing is to discuss your preferences with a reputable body piercer, like The End Is Near piercing Brooklyn studio, to determine which one is best for you.

Ear Piercings

The ear is the most popular part of the body to get a body piercing. Not only is it culturally acceptable to most it is also widely accepted if you wear it in the workplace.  Here are some of the ear piercings you can get.

Conch Piercings – This pertains to piercing of the lower cartilage just inside the ear, where it scoops inward.

Daith Piercings  — A Daith piercing is performed right above the tragus, where the ear curves in from where it connects to your head and then towards the conch area.

Earlobe Piercings – Refers to one or more piercings that go through the earlobe, normally beginning towards the bottom-center of the lobe.

Industrial Piercings – Industrial piercings passes through 2 points of cartilage at the top of the ear.

Oral and Facial Piercings

Anti-eyebrow Piercings — This kind of piercing is done at a slight angle below the outer corner of the eye rather than on the eyebrow.

Bridge Piercings – This is a kind of surface piercing where the bridge of the nose is pierced, in between the eyes.

Cheek Piercings – this type of piercing is done in the area where you naturally have dimples or in any area of the cheek that does not negatively impact the function of the parotid duct. In the event that it’s cut, saliva can exit the fistula (the hole where you were pierced) onto the outside area of the cheek and can only be repaired via cauterization.

Eyebrow Piercings – This may be placed horizontally across the eyebrow, but they are normally placed vertically. This is a kind of surface piercing, which means that it is more likely to get rejected compared to other kinds of piercings. The piercer will require enough skin and use jewelry with a slightly heavier gauge in order to lessen the chances that the jewelry might move out.

Tongue Piercings – These are typically don as a single piercing towards the center of the tongue. However, some people choose to have multiples done.

Web Piercings – Piercings of these include smileys, which is a piercing of the flap of skin between the upper lips and gums, and tongue frenulum piercings, which is when the flap of skin beneath the tongue is pierced.

As you can see there is an abundance of body piercing types that you can choose. Keep in mind though that healing times vary and proper aftercare must be followed in order to ensure proper healing. Do also check your work and lifestyle if these allow you to wear the piercings without causing any trouble.  Always follow the advice of your piercer regarding the correct jewelry to use as each piercing is different and may require different jewelry sizes to do right.

FAQs On The Most Popular Male Genital Piercings


Genital piercings are quite popular to certain groups of people that want to add pleasure to their sex life. Not only are they sexy they can make the sexual experience for both partners richer. If you are looking for something to spike up your sex life then maybe genital piercing is what you should try. Here are some of the frequently asked questions on male genital piercing.

Who Benefits More From The Procedure, Men Or Women?

Truth be told, women will almost always become more stimulated physically than a male partner by both her genital piercings and his. There are female genital piercings that are designed more for aesthetic reasons rather than to stimulate sexually. Those that can make the area more sensitive are clitoral hood piercings and similar ones in the clitoral area while a Christina piercing is more for aesthetic reasons.  Try and add in some friction against the g-spot from a male partner’s reverse Prince Albert or an Apadrayva piercing and the woman can achieve the best sexual stimulation in her life.

Given that, the issue is still up for debate on who benefits more whether it is the man or the woman because there is a strong mental element that also contributes to the arousal and orgasm process. For instance, a man that is instantly turned on by the glimmer of silver between his partner’s thighs or simply the idea of stimulating his partner using his genital piercings may benefit just as much as a woman who is having her g-spot and clitoris stimulated by the piercings of her partner.

What Are The Most Popular Male Genital Piercings And Why Is It So?

The most searched male genital piercing on the Internet is shown below in order of popularity.  Apart from the name of the piercing there is also a short explanation on how and where the piercing is placed.

Prince Albert Piercing – Also known as PA Piercings this most popular of male genital piercings passes through the underside of the head of the penis, into the urethra and then out through the urethral opening. There are some men that prefer Prince Albert Wands, but most do like the captive bead ring, circular barbell and lastly the bent barbell for normal daily activities.

The response of their partner from the piercing can be extreme; some partners either love them or hate them. Prior to getting this particular piercing, consider your preferred sexual positions in order to know whether the traditional PA is best or the revers PA would be considered more pleasurable for your partner.

Frenum Piercings – This type of male genital piercing are side-to-side surface piercings installed along the underside of the penile shaft. They are known as dorsal frenum piercings if they are placed along the top side. This type of piercing can be quite stimulating for the partner during sex.

Straight Barbells – These are considered the most common type of frenum jewelry however, d-rings may also be fun for both you and your partner if you acquire a frenum piercing that is located near the corona of the penis.

Jacob’s Ladder – A column of frenum piercings that line up the penile shaft is called a Jacob’s ladder or frenum ladder. Normally, ladders are done along the top or bottom of the penile shaft. However, some men also line the sides of their penises using straight barbell jewelry.  It might be quite tempting to begin with a ladder knowing you will not have sex for some time. However, this is not advisable if you have not had a frenum piercing before. A ladder may affect your ability to have an orgasm hopefully in a positive light. It is recommended to add frenum piercings over time so you will know if you and your partner can enjoy them as well as determine the best area for the placements.

Apadravya Piercings – This particular male genital piercing passes through the corona or head of the penis from top to bottom. The placement may be stimulating during intercourse with either a man or a woman partner. However, it is most ideal for a female sexual partner during vaginal penetration due to the likelihood that one of the balls will rub her g-spot pleasantly. It is also one of the most painful male genital piercings as it literally goes through the urethra but the pain is only momentary.

How To Select The Right Jewelry For Your Facial Piercing


Facial piercings are very popular and one of the most requested is the nose piercing. There are many kinds of jewelry that you can choose from but it is important that the right one is chosen not only for the benefit of the pierced part but also the environment where you will wear the jewelry.  There are two concerns involved namely internal factors (time to heal, your own lifestyle and personality) and external factors (what coworkers, clients and others might think). Here are some helpful tips to consider when selecting jewelry for your facial piercing.

Since piercing is fast becoming mainstream, fewer and fewer employers completely ban nose piercings in the workplace. Although some may inquire that workers choose only flesh-colored jewelry, or require studs of a specific size and shape. If you happen to work outside of your home, do make sure that you know the policies of your workplace when looking for starter jewelry. Last thing you want is an ultimatum whether to remove the piercing or lose your job if you do not comply.  It is quite important to choose jewelry that suits your body and lifestyle. If you are an active person, you may want to choose something that does not get in the way of that activity. If you happen to be sensitive to certain metals, it is quite important to keep that in mind as well.  For your starter nose jewelry, you may want to choose something that is conducive, simple and fast to heal as possible. This is not the best time to select that Hello Kitty nose ring you’ve had your eye on for some time now or that bone jewelry or some outlandish style that can not only cause healing issues but may also cause trouble for you either at work or at school or both.

What To Keep In Mind Prior To Getting Your Nose Pierced

  • Right jewelry appropriate for your kind of nose piercing
  • Consider healing time, your tolerance to pain as well as pain reduction measures
  • Styles and metal types are the smartest choices for new piercings
  • If you will need to have an option to hide the piercing as necessary
  • How to care for it after the procedure is done

The Process

Knowing what is going to happen during the piercing process can help you understand why the right kind of jewelry choice is very important

  • The piercer will first clean and sanitize the area getting pierced
  • The piercer will then mark the area with a pen and they will ask you to look in the mirror to ensure that the right spot is highlighted
  • They will then clamp the area to be pierced with an instrument that will hold it steadily in place
  • They will then push a hollow needle through with one quick movement. This is the part you will feel the most pain. It will however, be sharp and quick.
  • Lastly, they will insert the jewelry, which at times can be a bit painful depending on the location. You will leave this jewelry in place until such time it has completely healed.
  • The area is re-sanitized

Consider Pain Tolerance

While everyone experiences pain differently, it is worthwhile to tell your piercer if you are relatively sensitive to pain so they can make proper adjustments for your convenience in order to make the experience as quick and pain-free as they can.

How Much It Will Hurt?

It really depends on your pain tolerance. For the sake of comparison, it will likely hurt more having your ears pierced while a septum piercing will have an added degree of pain to it. However, by getting your nostril pierced it is significantly less painful compared to a cartilage piercing. If this is your first time to undergo the piercing process, the pain can be described as sharp, quick and bearable. You may also feel a dull ach for a few days after the procedure.

Pain Avoidance

  • Keep calm and relaxed, the less anxious you are, the better the experience will be. Be sure to get a good night’s rest and avoid alcohol the night before the procedure. You can also practice some anxiety reduction methods if necessary
  • For people that have the lowest pain tolerance, your piercer might recommend the thinnest jewelry available – gauge 20. The lower the number on the gauge, the bigger the hole needed for the piercing
  • Have your piercing done by an experienced and professional piercer who will use the right tools. Never have it performed by someone who is not a certified professional piercer
  • Follow religiously the aftercare instructions, keep the area clean until the site is completely healed
