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 continue contact with the clitoris and some woman may find the stimulation to be too much. Also some clients have stated that they feel like there has been a loss in sensation. This maybe in fact due to the newness of the piercing wearing off but it should be considered before getting the piercing. Horizonal is placed so that the ball of the ring lays against the bottom of the clitoris. Everyone is different but you may have to trying different jewelry sizes and shapes to find what works best for you.
