    Default can you help me decide!? (nipple piercing)

    I have set my heart on getting my nipples pierced (gonna start with just the right one first) and I can't decide between horizontal and diagonal piercings!! I really like diagonal piercings but I also really like nipple rings rather than bars, but if I got diagonal, would a ring look odd? Would the ring just look wonky? I can't find any pictures of diagonal piercings with rings in so I am finding it hard to imagine how the ring would sit :/


    and also.....I've heard some people say that nipple piercing made their nipple bigger, does anyone know if they mean the nipple bit that pokes out or the areola (sp?)?

    PLEASE REPLY D

    I had this sort of dilemma when I chose which way to have mine pierced. Personally I looked through images, weighed up the pros and cons of ring/bar (for asthetics, not for healing), and just went from there. At the end of the day, you're the one who's going to see it every day, so you've got to be happy with it!
    To answer your question, would a ring look odd in a diagonal;yes, I think it would. Personally I can't imagine it sitting comfortable, but that's just my two cents. I may be wrong, I don't think it makes your nipples any bigger, but it can increase, or even sometimes, decrease sensitivity.
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    A ring would look strange diagonally. It would look wonky, yes. And rings are also not good for healing at all, nipple piercings do take a very very long time to heal, so a ring would probably increase the healing time.

    The nipple doesn't exactly look bigger, (not on mine anyway) it just seems to stick out more.

    thank you just out of curiosity, people with nipple piercings, how would you rate the pain compared to any of these: cheeks, lip, tongue, septum, smiley, navel and scafolding? xx

    I have my lip, tongue, navel and septum but with my nipple I didn't actually feel a thing so I can't really compare! Septum was the most painful (for me) but even that was very bearable and over very quickly. It's very cliched but everyone feels each piercing differently.
