What Piercings Do You Want To Have Done?

  1. 1. Which piercings do you want?



Recommended Posts

Guest Ariel Mai

I just am thinking about what I want pierced right now and I am getting my 2nd hole on my ears, I am getting my belly button, cartilage, and top of the nose (stud). So many girls my age have all the piercings I named done except the belly button , but a lot of my friends want their belly button pierced. I think they are fun, and if they fit, they can look absolutely amazing. My mom told me she would take me to get my ears done, but she said I would have to wait till estrogen has its effects then loose weight and have a nice body before getting my belly button pierced. So I have a bit of time for that to happen, but ears are soon. Anyways what would you guys/ and gals like to have done piercing wise?

Lots of Love,

Ariel

I'm going to get both my ears pierced this summer. I want to get girly earings and I'm feeling more daring than my parents are but my mom doesn't want to push it too much. She's afraid I'll get beat up. What we're doing instead is getting plastic earings because they don't look girly at all but at least they're rings. They aren't the studs that guys normally get they just look cheap. I wish I could just wear whatever I feel like but there is the safety issue.

Already have 2 holes in each ear. But would like to get a nose stud one day possibly and if I can ever drop the weight I will be rewarding myself with a belly ring.

I had my ears pierced in Feb. I may go have my belly button done, but thats it. Forget all those facial piercings and the nipples, OUCH! I'll leave those for someone else.

I have 4 in each ear and have a rook in my right ear. The rook really hurt but I like it. I had my belly button done but took it out after it got infected after it was already healed. I could have put it back in after the infection was gone but decided against it.

I do want to get a nose stud but probably will never get it done because of work.

WELL. I already have plugs in my ears but they aren't gross or huge at all. But a lot of guys at my school are getting like one of the tops of their ears pierced, i think its called the cartilage or something haha i dunno it kinda looks cool, I'm contemplating it.

I'm thinking both ears, but asymmetrical in number. Two each in the right and left lobe and two in the left top cartilage is an image that's been sitting in my mind for a while. Nowhere else, though. I hate needles enough after the tattoos.

I already have 2 gauge plugs in both ears, plus an extra normal sized piercing in one, plus an eyebrow piercing... I was thinking of maybe getting an industrial piercing done too, and a tattoo. I'll probably wait until I've been on T for a while before getting the tattoo, though, as it'll be around my upper arm, and I don't want it to stretch if I get significantly more buff or something :)

I have all the piercings I want now. I had more but I've let a few of them go for a more traditional female look.

I have my ears pierced 3 times in each ear but now I just wear one pair of earrings.

I've got my nose pierced.

I've got my tongue pierced.

I had my labret pierced but I'm letting that one close up.

I had an industrial in each ear, too, but I'm letting those two close as well.

I had my belly button pierced, too, but that just didn't work for me so I took that one out as well.

..I went through a goth phase a few years ago.

Yeah I am thinking about getting an industrial done. :)

Oh and I am gauging my first hole on the lobes to a small size to i can still wear regular earrings without it looking ridiculous, or plugs w/e i feel like at the time. I am defintly getting belly button done. Yeah I am not a huge fan about facial piercings on myself. I dont mind them on others as long as you dont gauge lip rings....

I want a tattoo but have no clue what to get done.

I wear studs in guy mode and put in girl earrings in girl mode, thank goodness that i only have 10 more school days before full time :)

I have the cartilage in my left ear pierced once. I always wanted one there but never had any desire for anywhere else. I always felt that getting my ears pierced in the usual place would look stupid on me...to girly. I know some guys could carry it off but not me.

If you get an industrial, you won't be able to sleep on that side until it heals up..like a month or two later.

Don't take this the wrong way, I'm just throwing it out there in general. I would avoid getting a Monroe. I have seen it many times but of those many times, it only looked good on about 3 girls. I think a small stud nose ring is really cute and it's girlie. I don't like a septum piercing on anyone. It looks ridiculous and makes you look like a bull.

But that's just my opinion. I went through my piercing phase back in 2004 so now I've just settled in to what piercings I like and which ones, to me, were worth keeping. I've shyed away from gauging because it's a permanent thing and consider having a large hole in your ear may not be considered professional when trying to interview for that dream job after college.

Gauges close up Lizzie, well for the most part they do, many of my friends had them and when they took them out there took a few weeks to get back to a normal earring size but they did. I wasn't going to go to big prolly an 8 which is small still. How much does an industrial hurt, it is still a maybe for me I think it would be cute. Yeah I forgot tongue, I don't think I want my tongue done, but yeah a nose stud I want. Yeah monroes only look good on some people. I have only seen 3 people who septums have actually looked good on. They are super hard to pull off, or like lizzie said you look like a bull.

I had an Industrial, Wrist, Snake bites, ankle, Hips, Belly, and the normal ear piercing. But now i have only the industrial, lobes and snake bites. I know belly buttons you have to maintain and clean constantly or else it gets infected and stinks and stuff.

I definately want to pierce my nose and possibly lips! :D

Perhaps ears as well if I feel like it at some point, though I don't really like ear jewelery that is just a rounded shape or hanging dingling from the ear, it would have to be something special for me to pierce my ears I think..perhaps something that connects from the cartilage to the lower part of the ear.

/dreammode_off and back to reality :(

One day...ONE DAY!

An industrial kinda hurts since you're essentially getting 2 piercings and joining them with a bar. Mine was tender for a few months until it healed. From my experience, the tongue hurt the least but I have active saliva glands so I drooled a bit during the prep and set up. Also once the swelling went down and it was all healed up I took out the metal testicles and switched them for more prettier non-metal testicles. I haven't chipped a tooth or anything. I also don't play with it. Some times by accident I'll bite down on it which freaks me out because I don't want to crack a tooth or the ball on the piercing. I used to have one that was flat on top and a regular ball on the bottom. The flat part had an image of Hello Kitty. :)

...I've grown out of that.

I have both my ears pierced, but I only ever wear one earring. The only time I ever have both earrings in is if it's a fancy occasion, like a wedding. Or something (rarely though) if I can't decide between which earring I wanna wear I'll wear both. They won't match though :P

I would LOVE to get snakebites, one of my fav piercings and I would love it. But it would just look weird on me, I wouldn't be able to pull it off. :(

      An interesting subject. Probably a lifetimes work there!   Tracy
    • tracy_j
      Yes I agree to staying online. At least you have friends you can relate to here which is good, epecially if things get tough.   Tracy
    • tracy_j
      Good luck! I don't know how well it will relate to your job but I have a general link here which gives a flavour of things in the NHS.  It, and the links from it, may be a help. https://www.nhsemployers.org/retention-and-staff-experience/diversity-and-inclusion/policy-and-guidance/sexual-orientation   Private companies do not usually publish their policies online (as far as I know) but NHS trust and probably local government documents are likely to be available. A quick look found this for Newcastle: http://www.newcastle-hospitals.org.uk/downloads/policies/Personnel/GenderTransitionatWorkPolicy201808.pdf   I had a little look and found some info which private companies give but it would take a bit of searching to find details specific to gender, but may exist although maybe only in large companies. I did come across a council document though:   https://wolverhampton.moderngov.co.uk/documents/s36286/Appendix - Transgender Guidance Notes.pdf   Tracy

      I'm sure as Carolyn Marie said, most of us had doubts.    Me personally, I had a lot of doubts the months before I got on hrt. But by the time I got it, I reasoned that I'd never be happy to keep going on as a man. So I took the plunge, and so far transition has been pretty gentle to me. I'm very content with my choice and where I see transition taking me now.    Really at the end of the day, it's your decision though. If you aren't already, maybe consider talking with a gender therapist, or find a community meeting local to you. Some ways to get some perspective.

      Hello, Crystal Elaine, and welcome to Trans Pulse.  I want to start by congratulating you on being open minded, non-judgemental, loving and supportive.  It is wonderful to hear about, as its not as common an occurrence as we would hope.   What you've done together so far is a great start.  Other suggestions I can make include letting him dress and sleep in a nightgown (some have sexual relations this way, and I hear it can really invigorate a couple's sex life).  Helping him with makeup, buying a wig, wearing small items of jewelry (that he can hide from others, like an ankle bracelet) can also help with feeling feminine.   I'm sure others will have great ideas, too.  Thanks for asking, and best wishes to you both.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Many of us have doubts about virtually every aspect of our transition.  Having doubts and questions about HRT is not only normal, it is logical and sensible.  That's because HRT carries risks, as does any prescription medication, and those risks can be significant, especially if you have some types of pre-existing conditions.   My advice is to read as much as you can from reputable sites and publications, starting with the WPATH Standards of Care.  There is a whole lot of good information about it, including on this web site.  Being informed and knowledgeable is important.  I've had to educate some of my own doctors, which is not an unusual thing.   If you have specific questions, we'll try to answer them, but we aren't medical professionals, so be guided by your doctors and by your own informed mind.   Carolyn Marie

      Hey everyone,    Thanks for all the advice from my last post.    Today, I went to an endo doctor, and they say I might be able to hopefully start hormones in the next couple of weeks. When they told me that, I was excited but still hesitant. I always keep thinking that I'm going to have regrets or something. Is that normal? Did any of you have this feeling when starting hormones?    Thanks in advance!!

      My husband recently discovered by complete accident that he likes cross dressing. When I say by accident, I had seen videos of boyfriends/husbands doing their girlfriends/wives makeup, and I asked him to do mine. After he was done, I asked to do his. To both of our surprise, he really liked it. Now we are pretty adventurous in the bedroom, and we decided this could be a fun role play (my husband is into domination/humiliation). However, he didn't feel dominated or humiliated. He felt empowered and "pretty" to use his own words. For the rest of the night, he wore one of my dresses and a full face of makeup. The next day, we went out and bought a wig to complete his look. That night, I taught him how to do his own makeup, he put on one of my dresses and his wig, and he absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, it made me feel extremely uncomfortable. When I looked at him, I didn't feel like I was looking at my husband. I felt as though I had lost my husband.    After discussing this with my husband, he explained that he just liked not having to feel masculine. He likes getting in touch with his feminine side. Now my husband is a correctional officer who grew up in a strict southern baptist household. We have been exploring his sexuality together recently, and he has come to the decision that he not attracted to men, but he does still like to dress as a woman. He does not feel as though he is a woman, he is just tired of feeling like he has to live up to the standard masculine social norms.    We decided that I may have been uncomfortable because we just jumped straight into it instead of easing in. So we have decided to work up to him completely cross dressing by doing things that are deemed feminine. Last night, we did a foot scrub, painted our toe nails, and did a facial mask. I would love suggestions of other activities we can do to not only help me ease into the idea of my husband cross dressing, but to also allow him to do what makes him feel comfortable and helps him relax. I would also love any advice on what has helped anyone else through the same situation.   I love my husband dearly, and it's been a while since I've seen my husband that happy and relaxed. I am trying to support him the best that I can, but I am also confused by this.

      Hey Pixie... honestly I am so lost right now, but I  know this:  I have being dealing with other voices in my head that are not helpful to me. If it was not for my Gender Therapist properly would of off myself. So If you feel confused getting a G.T is a great starting point. Good luck be safe and keep us update  this site is a great sounding block and welcome
