T - Ring Nipple
thought it might help someone to tell my experience with the T-pierce.
After having just rings for the last 10 years, I wanted something fresh to make my nipples more sensual and erotic. After reading the T - bar text here, that is what I set my mind on. Living in the country limits us to be able to visit piercers or talk to others that had it done, so most of our searching was done through the net. After some long conversations with Todd Bertrang "Bigger is Better" hehe, I came into contact with Sari from Stainless Soul. After some initial questions and alot of back and forth e-mail, sizing etc, we got the T-Bar. Our next quest was to find someone to do it. We found a website by THE PIERCER - www.albany.net/~piercer/ Bob had never done this pierce but after an almost 2 hour meeting with him, we found him to be very honest and skilled (His daughter had a booth at a Tat show we went to). His shop is well orgainized and looks like a hospital setting (don't get scared, I mean VERY CLEAN. A place for everything and everything in its place).
Bob had the idea that instead of a bar, to hace a ring made and drilled for the leg of the T. I liked this idea immediately. I wanted to be able to hang some jewelery from the end of the T so he said that the ball could be drilled or dimpled.
I had already started to stretch my nipple from a 12ga by adding another 14ga ring several weeks earlier. Bob inserted a taper and put in the 8ga bar needed for the permanent ring. Several weeks later, he called that everything was ready,so up we went.
I guess he was as nervous as I was (being his first T nipple). I couldn't ask for a more professional and friendlier person, I guess we put eachother at ease. The center positioning is most important and Bob took the time to get it just right. The T is a 14ga so I believe he used a 12ga to do the pierce. He had it planned out just right. The needle went through and very quickly he had the 8ga ring in and was screwing in the T leg. I asked him when to hold my breath and he told me it was complete. I thought I would have some pain from the leg being inserted and screwed in. Just didn't happen.
At the same time, he put in a 10ga in preparation for the other nipple, it has to be stretched to 8 but we are doing it one size at a time. So I guess that several months from now , I will be able to have both of them matching. Bob had the foresight to order for both of my nipples
