    Unhappy Pros and Cons - Nipple Piercings

    Hey, I know i have already posted a thread asking about nipple piercings. But i was just reading up about "mastitis".

    I have read that this infection is very serious. And it has put me off getting those piercings.

    Can anyone, please give me some more information.. Like pros and cons about nipple piercings please?

    Mastitus is only a risk if the nipple is pierced into the areola area, while it is possible to get it from a nasty infection in another position you are more prone to it when its through the areola.

    Piercing into the areola also makes it more difficult for the piercing to heal as the movement of the chest annoys it!

    Ohh, ive got it! I was flicking through loads of sites reading information about it, and they didnt explain it "simple" like you did. Thank you.

    How would you know if its pierced right?

    Can a nipple piercing be rejected quite easily?

    Hehe sok :P I have to learn things simply to understand them too!

    If its pierced right it should be just after the crease that joins your nipple to your areola.

    They can't be rejected easily as some other piercings but they do migrate - especially if they are pierced into the areola. They can take about a year to settle down so its worth just leaving it alone as much as possible after the inital healing time (3 months).

    Good luck!!
    I love mine!
    Healing wasn't too much of a problem for me.
    It did hurt alot getting them pierced,but the pain didn't last very long.And my right hurt more than my left.Definatly my most painful piercings yet...but so worth it!

    I basically left them alone during healing and just made sure they were clean.

    Good luck with them!!

    Pros - lots of nice jewellery for nipple piercings, such as a bar with a half crescent of stars (cant post a link just yet not enough posts)

    Cons - not so nice when you catch the damn thing on the showr door and it half rips out - ouch!!!
