T-Bar Nipple Studs
I have the "normal" horizontal piercing through my nipples, plus an extra one coming in from the front that connects to the horizontal piercing channel. (This means that I have a T shaped hole inside my nipples.)
I am wearing a 10ga barbell through these piercings and they are well healed.
Some of my female friends and women colleagues here know what I have been planning so I've had a bit hectic time explaining the procedures to them. Some didn't give up till they had seen my studs 8-) (they were interested in getting pierced themselves!).
I've received encouraging whistlings from the boys (some of my female friends must have gossiped) -- I have allowed some of them to have a look also and they made big eyes and almost dribbled and said "WOW HOW SEXY!!", "I like that or hhhow can they sit like that?", and "I want my girlfriend to have such studs also!"
The girls have looked enviously at me and said "Didn't that Hurt a lot??", "How brave of you!", "They look very sexy!", "How pretty your nipples look!", "They do look very cute!", and "I must know how you did it, because I also want to wear such jewelry!"
This is how the jewellery was made:
It consists of two parts the regular "ear stud" plus an adaptor that screws into the horizontal barbell.
For healing and technical reasons the smallest gauge that is recommended is 14g, so that is what we chose. If the piercing is made with a smaller gauge it doesn't tend to heal too well and would be difficult to find when changing the jewellery.
The bar coming forward out of the centre of the nipple will be 14g screwed into the horizontal barbell at one end. The bar itself is a hollow tube for most of its length (except the threaded bit). The hollow tube is thinner at the inner end that has the threads .
like this: --------------_
Drilled hole here ----> 0========= | This end threaded ~1.0 mm
_____---- ^ Thread here --------|
There is no abrupt changes in diameter -- it changes smoothly! Into the adaptor can be inserted any ear stud from the high street.
And by doing the holes in such a thin gauge I am sure it will not affect future breast feeding at all.
My boyfriend and I arrived at the piercers'.
This is how he made the piercings:
First of all he sterilized all jewelry parts in an autoclave. (The modified barbells with threaded holes in the middle, stud holders and the gold bead studs.)
Then I got a good cleaning of my nips. Then we spent a good time measuring out the center of my nips and trying to get them symmetrically placed. And finally marking the exit holes.
After that I got some mild numbing agent dabbed on my nipples.
By this time my heart were pounding rather heavily.
He used a Cannular Needle, which has a plastic sleeve around the needle.
First he removed one ball from the barbell and then withdrew the needle into the plastic sleeve. Then he put the sleeve over the barbell.
Now comes the trick:
Pull/push the sleeve into the very centre of the nipple, (measure carefully). Hold the sleeve steady and pull the barbell off the end. Now the sleeve should be exactly alligned with the marking on the nipple tip. Gently tilt the nipple sideways and Push the needle forward and out of the centre of the nipple (including the sleeve) (This means that the needle pierces from inside and out).
At this point we had a rest and I was beginning to see how everything would turn out.
He then removed the needle leaving the sleeve behind. And inserted the stud holder bar threaded end first into the sleeve pulled the sleeve out and the bar into the new hole.
Next step was -- while holding the stud adaptor -- to gently loosen the sleeve and insert the threaded barbell.
Now he screwed the new bar into the barbell and the reamaing ball on the barbell.
Now he repeated the whole procedure with my right nipple.
The new stud holding adaptors were made too long by 2/3 mm = 0.026" for a while until it healed to adapt for swelling and to give something to hold onto for insertion.
I had a chance to take a good look now and I could see the adaptors sticking out as little as they should. My nipples looked a bit sore but otherwise everything looked OK.
Finally he swabbed me with a cleaning agent and popped in the gold bead studs.
Now I could finally see the final result in a mirror.
My breasts looked absolutely marvellous with thease golden studs sitting in the nipple tips.
By this time my head was spinning and I was bubbling with Joy!
The studs sit a tiny bit in front of the skin during the healing time, but later on I will have the adaptors shortened so that the jewlerry settles in my nipple tissue, just slightly pushing the skin down.
My boyfriend was with me during the whole "operation", and that was a relief.
Afterwards he took me to a faboulus restaurant and I felt like I was walking on clouds...
My nipples were aching a bit after that the anaesthesia had gone off, but I knew why ;-).
I had a dull ache for some days after and I could not sleep on my tummy. I had to use a couple of paper towels shaped as doughnuts round the nipples in order to release them from pressure but now it has disappeared. So I'm very pleased with what I have done!! My nipples look just faboulus...
The cleaning and care of the piercings is almost as with every other piercing the only differences are that I can't work as easily from both sides of the holes. I apply the fluid on my nipples and adaptors and slightly loosen the adaptor in order to work the fluid in the holes by rotating the adaptor. I have found that a tiny syringe with a blunt tip is ideal for rinsing from behind. Just put the syringe "tube" in one of the barbell holes and gently squeeze till the fluid come squirting out through the front hole. :-)
And my loved one has bought the promized set of Qubic zirconium studs so I can hardly wait the healing weeks till I can try them out. They are a bit larger than the gold studs and I don't want to screw up anything so I'll be patient!
I really like having the adaptor so that I can change the studs whenever I feel like it.
First: I will almost never need to remove the adaptors ! I can just switch the fancy part.
Second: I like to change my earrings and nose studs rather frequently, so I am very glad that I will be able to do so with my nipple studs also :-).
I will be able to use what ever "Ear -- or in this case Nipple -- stud" I want :-) It combines the good parts of ear studs and body jewllery. It's very easy to switch the fancy part + you get the stimulation from the jewllery and you are still playing it safe!
IT'S ALMOST LIKE HEAVEN!!
My nipples have become a bit more sensitive now than before but not so much that
it bothers me. I had to use a couple of paper towels shaped as doughnuts
round the nipples the first days in order to release them from pressure.
Now I think it's quite nice to get stimulated when the blouse moves during the daily duties.
And the most pleasing is that the holes have healed nicely, I hope they will continue staying so :-).
These were my initial feelings and thoughts. Here come additional comments!
Now that I have had my studs for some time, I have not once regretted the day that I took this step. I mostly wear The big Cubic cironium studs that my boyfriend bought me. They together with the barbells really enhance my nips instead of taking away anything from them.
Sometimes I use some pendant gold-drops or gold hearts ;-)
I especially remember one time: This was when we were on a hidden away beach bathing topless! It felt wery exiting when we played on the beach and the jewelry swayed and brushed against my nipples.
Now that I have had my studs for some time I have managed to learn what I can do and what I mustn't do in order to keep things under control!
If I for instance dont wear a bra and wave with my arms I will be stimulated too much by the cloth rubbing against my nipples. And if someone bumps into me (by misstake I hope or is it just to tease me?) I can get that tingling feeling also.
In most other cases I think the stimulation my new studs give me is just what I've been looking for. ;-)
I can still sometimes not fully believe that it is true. Sometimes I feel like being in a sort of pinkish cloud. Then I have to sneak in to the ladies room and have a peek 8-) and every time I get a kick from seing my nipples in full glory ;-).
Generally speeking I think my nipples are a real erogenous zone now, and I think it's very nice to get stimulated even by the light rubbing that occurs when the blouse moves during the daily duties.
But just so much that I feel comfortably happy and stimulated. The only thing I can't do so much about is the fact that my nipples are more visible now that they are semi erect all the time and that it shows through my blouses but I have not noticed that anyone disapproves of that (quite the contrary ;-) -- A lot of smiles and envious eyes thats all).
Love to hear your comments !
