I want to have my nipples pierced but they’re inverted. I read on your encyclopedia that it can be done, but mine don’t simply ‘pop out’ like the article mentions. They are really ‘in there’, if you understand me. A friend recommended apllying ice, but it has the opposite effect to normal; they shrink in further. Applying heat doesn’t get them out very far either.
Assuming I can convince them to come out far enough to get pierced, my idea was to wear Bioplast bars as the initial jewelry, so that the inward-pull caused by my nipples doesn’t result in too much pressure on the piercing (the bars will bend under the pull), then, once healing is done, switch to metal bars. My eventual goal is to be able to wear nipple shields.
My piercer has done inverted nipples before, but not like mine that pull in so hard, hence the reason we’d like a second opinion.
Would my plan be viable or would you suggest something else?
For the most part, most inverted nipples can be worked out enough to be pierced with a thicker gauge (12g+) barbell (I tend to use curves for inverted nipples.)
That said, some people just don’t have the correct anatomy for nipple piercings and I have to suggest they consider piercing something else.
In my opinion, if your nipples cannot be gently worked out to be pierced, I wouldn’t do them. The pressure against the piercing as your nipples are trying to sit back in their intended, natural position will cause enough irritation for them to reject entirely.
