Hey! I am thinking about getting a nipple piercing. The thing is, I’m a girl with rather small, very shy nipples. They aren’t inverted- but very small when they aren’t hard. (If you put your hand over my boob, you can hardly tell the nipple from the rest of my boob, you know? Anyway..) With that in mind, is 16ga too small for a nipple piercing? I think 14ga (and definitely 12ga) would look strange on me. And also, I read somewhere that some people still get a type of discharge several years after piercing. Is that often the case? Is so, that would definitely sway me away from the piercing as I like piercings that are problem-free after healing. Thanks a lot.
I would most definitely say that 16ga is too small to do on any nipple. Also know what you find to be small and very shy nipples, may not always be the case. After all how many males out there have very small nipples yet were capable of obtaining a piercing? Quite a few
A experienced reputable piercer will be able to analyze the nipple size and shape and take proper measurements to make sure the right sized jewelry is used. It should be anywhere from 14ga or larger but I’ve even done nipples with 8mm (5/16) length barbell.
I would most definitely suggest a barbell to be used as well as make sure its Implant Grade Internally Threaded in jewelry style…If done correctly the piercings will heal perfectly and the inverted shape of your nipples can be corrected.
As per the discharge there can potentially be discharge every so often, everyone’s different. The only way to find out if you’ll be the one with more discharge than you’d like, is to get them done and see what happens. Discharge is often a result of skin cells and body oil and other things expelling from the actual pierced pathway. Some people produce these things more than others.
