I have mine done; I love it. Go to a reputable piercer who pierces with a needle and uses titanium jewellery to avoid any potential reaction. To clean it, dissolve 1/4 teaspoon sea salt in 8oz cooled boiled water and use cotton pads to soak gently for ten minutes, twice a day.
Don’t fiddle with it, only touch it with clean hands, avoid swimming during the first few weeks of healing and FFS don’t catch it on a towel / clothing / hairbrush
Ooh ooh I just had mine done last weekend! It's a titanium ball closing ring.
It wasn't that painful at all, there was a weird crunching sensation as the needle went in and then it did hurt a bit when the piercer put the ring in but it was all over so quickly that I barely had time to register what was happening!
It was a bit sore for a few days but is now healing really well. I'm giving it a gentle dab with salt water daily on the advice of my piercer and that seems to help.
I love it and wish I'd done it years ago. Go for it!
