    Default Airport Security Checks and genital piercings

    Does anyone have any experience with airport security that has genital piercings? I am going to be flying in a few weeks and don't want to get hassled by security with the metal detectors. I would really appreciate a quick response so I know whether or not I have to take out all of my rings and barbells

    I've gone through the scanner multiple times with a 0ga ring, 2ga ring, and three 6ga rings all in my crotch and have not had a problem. High quality implant grade steel should not set off the scanner.
    Current:
    PA (0ga), guiche ladder (3 @ 6ga), lorum/hafada (2ga)

    Retired:
    apadravya (4ga), amphallang (10ga), frenum (8ga), guiche (6ga), lorum (6ga)

    there is a big story now in the US, a woman set off the metal detectors with her nipple rings. she had never removed them so they had grown in and they made her take them out. they even gave her pliers and laughed at her bc she was having a hard time getting them off.

    Link? Sounds like nonsense to me. Unless it was one of those mega sensitive handheld scanners passed right over her chest??

    Also why would they make her remove them???

    Hazel, I remember the story about the poor woman who had to remove them with pliers supplied by the TSA. In the end the only thing her lawyer got was a promise from the TSA that they wouldn't do it again. Elayne Angel even mentions it in her book. http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-501843_162-3976376.html

    Ugh, that's horrible. Removing an embedded piercing with pliers... on your nipples of all places. I hate TSA because of things like this. They can be so needlessly cruel.

    I wonder why she even set the detector off. I guess it's down to jewelry material.
    Have: 2g lobes (11/11/12); L 16g conch (07/27/12); 14g VCH (09/01/12) | Next: stretch ALL the things! (lobes: 1g; VCH: 12g)
    Also Want: 8g septum, outer labia, nipples; too many tattoo ideas for my own good; goal size for lobes = 1/2" - 5/8"
    Is it weird that I love piercing crusties...?
