Hi!
Have thought about getting myself pierced in the nipple for a while, but I was wondering, does it hurt badly? I have septum, and that was really disgustingly painful, could it be worse with the nipple? Have to add that my nipples are very sensitive.

And to wear a bra the first week? Or I should get a sports bra to have the first couple of weeks?

Could not find much on the internet about personal experiences, but perhaps someone here could tell me? :D

I had mine done, twice in my left (had to take first one out as it was pierced in wrong place and got sore when preggers) and once on my right side (which had to be taken out cause i got mastitus :( ) I would say it is painful... BUT only while its pierced, afterwwards i didnt find it sore at all. I wore a bra but popped a tissue in for bit a padding.... make sure you clean it well with salt water and savlon spray and that you go somewhere reputable. I love mine now :D xxxx

It really depends on you, I found the piercing not so bad, but the healing for about the first week was horrible. Although mine rejected so there was more pain then normal. I would say, if you want it just do it. Its over in a second! As long as you take good care of it, you shouldn't have any problems.

I have no problems with the healing or so, that's just part of the process. When my septum healed, the boyfriend I had at the time tended to smack me right on the nose haha, agony. So I am.. used to it haha. It was not on purpose though haha, even if it happened more after I got it pierced.
I am very cautious with cleaning and so on, I had so much troubles with one of my tattoos, so I learned to take more care.
I have thought about it ever since my friend Siri got one, about 2 years ago, and then a classmate of mine did it, and then I wanted more. It looks really nice so I think I would concider it, and it's not that expencive here either, about 68 $.

We have this cream here in Sweden, called Emla, that dampens the pain, used it on my nose. It helped a lot, because the first time I had it done, it was so freakin painful and I almost fainted, and the second time it only hurt a bit. Wonder if that is something you can use.. Would probably have to contact the piercingstudio and ask them..

I have used Emla several times with mixed results when I used it on my micro derma’s it was painless but trickier t do as my skin was slightly greasy.

When I used it on a tattoo I thought it hurt more than with out?

And I think it only numbs the out layers of skin (hope this makes sense), so I don’t think it would be 100% effective on a nipple but may make the initial insertion of the needles slightly less painful if not unnoticeable.
With my septum I used it and I didn’t feel the needle go in, but hell did I fell it go thought and out the other side hope this helps :)

Ah okay, will probably have to ask about that then, if they had done it on a Emla drenched nipple before, haha.
I have never used it on a tattoo though :o
Yes I guess thats true, and that it hurts a lot after the numbness has gone. My nose was all numb when he did my septum, on the outside, but I felt it on the inside, and I guess the Emla wore out like in the middle of the whole thing, so it hurt a lot when he inserted the ring. So if I use it on my nipple I will have to stop being so panicky and just do it. Hah, like that would ever happen..!

KittycatAh okay,

I truthfully think that Emla has a more psychological impact than it does physical numbness, as you think it will hurt less so don’t worry or panic and are relaxed when they do the piercing. And I think this is the main contributor to pain, as if im stressed or nerves beforehand I panic and worry and then it hurts (IMO). But if im relaxed and think it’s going to hurt, live with it! I think it isn’t as bad? Maybe it’s just me.

Hope this makes sense to you

Yeah I guess you're right. Even if it does hurt a little, you're at least a bit calmed down. Must feel rather awkward though, having a numb nipple haha :lol:
But still I am really afraid of eventual pain. I fear both pain and needles, so if I do it, I have to give the piercer strict orders not to show me the needle, not to talk or anything, just do it. And my perhaps soon to be boyfriend has to come with me, hold my hand and talk to me, under the whole process, so I wont be all panicky. I am such a kid haha. 19 years old and deathly afraid of needles. Whey.

Yeah I guess :) Will contact he who did my septum by tomorrow or so, ask a few questions and then book a day! So maybe in 1-2 weeks I will do it. And have a friend to that wants to come with me to keep me company (and to see boobs haha)
But thanks all of you who answered! You've attacked my fears :)

HELPPPPPP!

I just got my septum done 4 days ago at a place i was recomended to, sence i didnt trust the place in my town. The peircer put a RETAINER IN??????? I thought it would be fine at first, but now ive got sores on the sides of my nostrils. I went to the place in my town and they were confused as to why they put a retainer in too, all he could do was try to spread the piece a little so it wasnt so tight. I DO NOT want to take it out and start over :( so do i just wear the retainer up the whole healing time and then put another piece of jewlery in when it heals? what can i do for the peircing in the mean time? ive never even heard of this problem T-T

My elder brother had his pierced with a retainer, he had to have it hidden for work. He left it up, cleaned it etc as you do with any new piercing & once it'd healed he'd changed the jewellery to something else, or just flip the retainer down. He never had any issues with it & was pierced at 3.2mm

Maybe its the type of retainer she put in then? Its small and curved inward it hits the sides and is tight. I dont have a large nose either D:

I think i'll wear it up untill the blisters heal. I put neosporen on the blister. :?

I'd guess your nose swelled up after the piercing and that's what caused it to give you sores, hopefully the other place prising it apart will fix that. If it's still not comfortable I'd talk to them about switching it for a different piece of jewellery. I had mine pierced with a barbell, and it was months before I could get a retainer in, it doesn't have to swell much to make that difficult!

they cant put new jewlery in this early (it would be like peircing it again, but with jewlery and that is bad) I do see swelling infront of the hole but not where its blistered, untill now(when i went to clean it and i guess there was a scab and it started to bleed, when it stopped it swelled).
