Hood Piercing a Buried Clit

0 Comments

Way back in 2012 I got some wonderful piercings that helped with my dysphoria and made me look badass, including a vertical clitoral hood (VCH) piercing.

As my About page says, I have a fat cunt and a buried clit. I don’t have much of a hood to speak of. A lot of my friends with similar anatomy were curious about my experience. They wondered if it was any good with my body shape. 9 years later, it just occurred to me to share!

If you wonder, “Can I get a hood piercing with a buried clit?” the answer is, maybe! Your piercer may be able to make it happen, depending on how you’re built.

What I discovered is “can” and “should” are different things. If you want to know, “Should I get a hood piercing with a buried clit?” Here’s my experience. Decide for yourself!


Professional piercers required

My wonderful piercer in WNC talked extensively with me about the procedure and requirements for a hood piercing.

The standard for figuring out if your anatomy is a good candidate for a hood piercing is the Q-tip test. If you can fit the end of a Q-tip under your clitoral hood, you may have enough skin for a VCH.

With a clit buried like mine, there’s little or no overlapping skin for a Q-tip. I really don’t have a much of a hood. No need to be alarmed! There’s tons of natural diversity in vulval structure. There’s no wrong way to have a vulva.

After trying the Q-tip test, my piercer wasn’t sure a hood piercing would do anything for me. I held my outer labia back for her inspection. There’s no real “hood” to speak of in my anatomy – my clitoris is a pearl presented on a plush, velvet pillow. I experienced the less-notorious “foreskin envy.” It was my only option to have a piercing that could touch my clit.

Despite my piercer’s warning, I wanted to try. She suggested different barbell shapes might offer more comfort or contact. I knew it might not work, but I wanted it so bad. Piercings I later regret are much more affordable buyer’s remorse, usually. Ultimately my 14g curved starter barbell was my only jewelry. I was initially jazzed to have metal in my junk, but over time it became pretty obvious I’m not built for a hood piercing.

The process of getting your hood pierced is different for everyone. My piercer said many clients didn’t mind the pain, since it’s not a lot of concentrated nerve endings like the nipples or the clit itself. Piercing the actual clit is MUCH less common, and isn’t an option for a clit of my size.

She mentioned one client orgasmed when pierced. I didn’t expect that to be me, because my demanding clit murders sex toys with regularity, most recently two Doxy Die casts. I have a pretty low pain tolerance and fibromyalgia, I was comforted by my piercer’s reassurance.

Truth is, if you don’t like having your genitals prodded with metal or needles, this piercing process is still uncomfortable. My piercer was quick and delicate as possible, but I squealed when pierced.

In terms of pain, it was less intense and long-lasting than getting both my nipples pierced. I’d say it was on par with my eyebrow piercing for actual pain, but getting pierced in such a sensitive area felt surprising as a kick to the groin, even when expected.

Tips for getting a hood piercing with a buried clit:

  1. Check their websites or call the parlors you’re considering and ask if they do below-the-belt piercings, because some don’t. Are you gonna waste time roaming from place to place to ask in person? What year do you think it is?

  2. Want more than one piercing in the near future? Consider getting those from the same piercer before they do your below-the-belt piercing. It was a great opportunity to build rapport. I had such a positive experience after she pierced my nipples, I didn’t hesitate to book the appointment for my hood piercing.

  3. I STRONGLY recommend showering before your appointment and bringing wet wipes with you in case you need to freshen up after a wait. A little extra attention to hygiene is considerate in many occasions, and this is one.

  4. Bring something you can bleed on, like a liner, a pad, period underwear. I didn’t bleed too much after my piercing, but depending on your anatomy or clotting abilities, you might get some light staining if you don’t.

  5. Plan to need help changing your VCH jewelry depending on your body type, reach, and flexibility. This was a huge factor in my decision to ditch my hood piercing.

    Broad shoulders and T-rex arms are great for snuggles but terrible for fine manual dexterity below the waist. When I finally surrendered, I had to ask my partner to remove my jewelry, because the width of my shoulders made changing it myself absolutely impossible.

    Ask your piercer what the charge is for them to change the jewelry in the future. (If it’s free, I think you should still tip when you go.)

Out damn curve!

Originally I intended to return to my piercer to get help removing it, but after a year and a half, the parlor changed hands, she moved, and the new place didn’t do below-the-belt work. Whoops.

I kept my piercing at least a year longer than I wanted, because I didn’t have the energy to find a new parlor to remove it, and my ex’s first attempt was unsuccessful.

She managed to get it out when we tried again later, and I had no intention of trying the other jewelry I bought at that point. It was way too much of a pain in the ass – if I can’t change the jewelry myself, I don’t want it in my body.

What did I learn about hood piercings?

I’ll probably just listen to my piercer’s recommendation from the start when it comes to how a piercing will suit my anatomy. I REALLY wanted a pierced hood, hoping it would positively affect my vulva/vagina-related dysphoria the way my pierced nipples made me more content with my breasts.

It didn’t, it was just in the way and annoying. It kind of made things worse, because it threw off my groove, which intensified the dysphoria!

The hood piercing also didn’t provide any stimulation that I found pleasurable. If anything, my starter jewelry impeded it, getting in the way countless times during oral and rattling against metal or plastic toys. Typically piercings have slightly longer bars than you’d normally wear in them to accommodate for swelling, but I never sized down because I couldn’t get the starter jewelry off on my own.

I spent most of my late teens and early 20s learning things the hard way, but if my experience helps you save yourself, it’s worth it! I can pretend I did it for the blog. (I didn’t, but nothing is sacred here.)

Oh, and if you wanna see the fresh VCH, I’ve added a photo of it below a read more tag:

It’s totally NSFW!

Y’all ready?

Okay let’s do it.
