    Default Sooooo... where does the nipple piercing actually go through?

    I know it's kind of a stupid question but i've seen so much photos i can't decide.
    So, when you get a nipple piercing done, does the needle go through the actual nipple bud or the tissue right behind it? On a lot of photos it's so close to the base i'm really not sure.
    And also, i got my navel pierced a few days ago, should i wait until it's healed? It's not sore anymore, since i have a bit of a tummy it's not really restricting any movement, just wondering.

    If you're female it should go through the base of the nipple, it should not go through the areola. If male and you have a small nipple the piercer may go a bit deeper.

    Usual rule for healing is no more than 3 within 3 months. If your navel is doing ok then 1 or 2 nipple piercings should be fine. You may want to hold off for some time after that though as navels and nipples can be long healers.

    Thank you for the response, the base doesn't sound so painful (it still does but not as much as directly through the nipple).

    I'm not planning more piercings in the near future, my right ear is "full", my left is hidden by my hair and i don't plan any on my face so i will be fine with these for now
