In the meantime, here is part three of our series on piercings, so if any of you ladies are curious about having your “bits” done, then read on!

 

Christina Piercings/Venus Piercings - A surface piercing that's above and vertical to the top of the clitoral hood.

Clitoral Piercings - It's very rare for the actual clitoris to be pierced. Some people mistakenly call VCH and HCH piercings clitoris piercings.

Female Nipple Piercings - Nipples are typically pierced horizontally, but they may also be pierced vertically or even at an angle. Straight barbells make the best starter jewelry for most people, although your piercer may recommend a curved barbell based on your anatomy. It's better to wait the 9-12 months until your nipples are fully healed to change to CBRs, which can put too much downward pressure on the healing fistulas.

Fourchette Piercings - This type of piercing is done at the back edge of the vulva. Compares to a male Guiche Piercing.

Horizontal Clitoral Hood/HCH Piercings - With an HCH piercing, the clitoral hood is pierced from side-to-side.

Inner Labia Piercings - This is a piercing of the inner labia, from inside to outside. A woman may have a single ring or a row of rings through each side of the inner labia.

Outer Labia Piercings - This is a piercing of the inner labia, from inside to outside. A woman may have a single ring or a row of rings through each side of the inner labia.

Outer Labia Piercings - This is a piercing through the outer labia. A woman may have a single ring or a row of rings through each side of the inner labia. Some women stretch the holes slowly and insert tunnels in these piercings.

Triangle Piercings - This piercing passes through the base of the clitoral hood from side-to-side, under the clitoris.

Vertical Clitoral Hood/VCH Piercings - With a VCH piercing, the clitoral hood is pierced from top-to-bottom.
