This is a surface piercing using a surface barbell which runs horizontally or slightly at a slant above the clitoral hood and through the edge of the pubic bone.
The piercing can also run vertically through the pubic bone and is then referred to as a Christina Piercing.
Strictly speaking the pubic piercing is not really a genital piercing, since it provides no stimulation for the wearer. And it is not possible for every woman since it largely depends on the individual anatomy.
The piercing is executed horizontally or slightly slanted through the pubic bone.
A banana bar or a surface bar with a thickness of 1.6mm is suitable for this kind of piercing. We often recommend jewelry using the flexible PTFE material. Basically the pubic piercing is a surface piercing and should be done at the appropriate depth. The perforation length will vary from one customer to another, as will the material chosen.
This piercing should take 3 to 4 months to heal. Being a surface piercing, there is always a risk of complications. Due to the placement of the piercing, it is exposed to a lot of movement and friction. If the Christina Piercing is not executed deeply enough, it may grow out. Even if the woman has a lot of connective tissue in the pubic mound, there is still a high risk of it growing out.
The piercing should not be removed, even when shaving in this area; when it has healed completely then it can be taken out before shaving.
We always advise our customers to carefully consider their decision to go through with a pubic piercing, and to opt for a clitoral hood piercing instead, since the latter only offers benefits. Alternatively, the customer can also have a dermal anchor performed in the pubic bone, if she wishes to adorn that particular area.
Those who don’t really want a pubic piercing should consider a clitoral hood piercing or a dermal anchor instead.
