Clitoral Hood Piercings

We do both horizontal and vertical clitoral hood piercings. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. The Vertical piercing like the one pictured above is in continuous contact with the clitoris and some women may find the stimulation to be too much. Also, some clients have stated that they feel like there has been a loss of sensation. This may be in fact due to the newness of the piercing wearing off but it should be considered before getting the piercing. Horizon is placed so that the ball of the ring lays against the bottom of the clitoris. Everyone is different but you may have to try different jewelry sizes and shapes to find what works best for you.


The clitoral hood is a modern piercing developed in the late 1980s. It is located in the loose skin that covers the clitoris and can be done vertical or horizontal.


The main reason to get this one is Sexual enhancement caused by the jewelry's contact with the clitoris during sexual activity.
