Famous Celebrities Nipple Piercing Celebrity

Piercing your nipple could be one of the many ways you can have fun with your boobs. Nipple piercing are one of the latest trend going into the market; and is considered as a cool-girl accessories. Yes! You heard it right. They seem to be turning up under tank tops and sheer shirts across the internet. The move is into the lime light, all thanks to Kendall Jenner who took this clearly chic move. But that looks painful, isn’t it? Well to know what actually it feels like having your nipple pierced, we went out to ask some of them who actually have them. We’ve got the best of five to give some juicy facts about their nipple piercing and how they’ve started loving them:

We’ve shield the identities of all our subjects from the internet:

“It Was a Lot Of Sensation.”

“I have my nose and lip pierced, as well as a few tattoos, so I’m pretty good with pain. I figured if I could handle those, I could probably handle getting my nipples pierced. One night I was walking through Washington Square Park, and I passed by a cool-looking tattoo place with a good vibe called West 4 Tattoo, so I went it to check it out. It was clean, had good reviews on Yelp, and the people there had done a lot of dermal piercings, which I know are really hard to do. I thought if they could do those, they could do nipple piercings. Then a couple weekends ago, a friend was visiting, and we just decided to walk in and do it. It was kind of a spontaneous decision. It hurt less than I thought it would because they pinch your nipple with these little tongs first, but it was still definitely a six. I tried to stand up afterward, and I was really dizzy. It was a lot of sensations. I wash the rods twice a day with Dial antibacterial soap and spray them with a sea-salt spray I bought. The bled for the first day or two, but there’s pretty much no pain now, expect if I ding them on something or get them caught on a towel. And I make sure to wear a clean bra every day while they’re healing. It was the most painful of all my piercings and tattoos, but I really like them and think they look cool.” {Source: Allure}

“The Piercing Definitely Made Me More Aware of My Nipples”

I got a nipple piercing when I was 20 and kept it in for probably eight years before I removed it. The piercing itself was not what I thought it was going to be. I’d had friends who got them and told me, ‘It doesn’t hurt nearly as much as you think it will.’ This was unhelpful; I waltzed in thinking it wouldn’t really hurt, so the pain actually caught me off guard. But it wasn’t just the pain—it was the whole experience. I was told an apprentice would be doing the piercing. I was like, ‘Okay. I can deal with this.’ They told me to take off my shirt and bra, so I was sitting there shirtless with my least favorite, most modest roommate and six strangers crowding around me. The apprentice picked up a needle to prep it, and his hand was literally shaking to the point where the main pierce was like, ‘Whoa. Set it down. Calm down. This is no big deal.’ Really instilling confidence in me, guys. When he picked the needle back up and was about to jam it through my nipple, the other pierce yelled, ‘STOP!’ The other pierce grabbed the needle and was like, ‘Look, it’s barbed. You do not want to use this one for the piercing.’ Finally, the deed was done. It was much more painful than I thought it was going to be because I had expected it not to hurt. The pain was sharp and searing, but in the grand scheme of things, it was still manageable. At the time, I was dating my now-husband, and he just rolled his eyes at the whole thing. He didn’t care one way or another if I had one, so from an ‘exotic’ standpoint, it didn’t make a bit of difference. The piercing definitely made me more aware of my nipples, and that awareness probably made me more sexually aware as well. Once it healed up, I will say it added some spice to our sex life. It made my nipple more sensitive and tingly. He could tug on it with his teeth, massage it, or flick it, and it would elicit greater arousal. {Source: Women’s Health Magazine}

“Whoa! It Was an Endorphin Roller-Coaster Feeling”

“I was about 22 when I got them. I always thought they looked hot, especially with no bra under a white tank top. And I was always impressed with people who had giant crazy things like Janet Jackson. I went to Maya Ventura at Third Eye Tattoo in Park Slope to get rings. She was one of the first tattoo artists to get licensed when it became legal again in New York, and she had done my first tattoo, so I was comfortable with her. The first one was like, Whoa! It was an endorphin roller-coaster feeling. And it hurt, but only for a second, and then it radiated pain. But I didn’t care. I was like, Yeah! Let’s pierce the other one! What else can we pierce? And then it literally never healed. The post-traumatic nipple injury had a huge impact on my relationship with my husband. We got married in 2000, and I got the piercings in 2001, so for the first few years of our marriage it was like, No, nope, that area is off-limits. They were always sore. I think it’s because I have big boobs, and they’re always changing size and swelling. I feel like the girls with tiny boobs and piercings have it easy. At one point one of them was rejecting, so I eventually took them both out. They looked good, but it wasn’t worth the hassle. Now they’re healed, and you can kind of see little scars if you really look. All that said, the people I know who had their genitals pierced said it healed in five seconds, and it wasn’t bad at all. Go figure.” {Source: Allure}

“I’m Going To Keep It Forever”

“I got mine done in 2012, around the time I started dating my now-boyfriend. I remember mentioning it to him to see if it would creep him out, because if it did, I’d be like, OK, I don’t like you anymore. He was so excited and enthusiastic. I think my original inspiration was Lisbeth Salander from Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I had just seen the movie and thought it was so bad-ass. It’s also one of those things you can cover up. No one knows I have my single nipple piercing except for a few close friends and my boyfriend. I did a lot of research and found this place on the Lower East Side. It didn’t really hurt. I thought my nose ring was more painful. The funny part was that the guy who did my piercing turned out to also live in my neighborhood, so afterward I would see him at the grocery store all the time. It was so awkward because obviously I had to take my shirt off and be topless while this guy looked at my boobs and touched them. It was just really weird. The only thing I’d say is that if you are not comfortable with your body or not comfortable having to care for it, you shouldn’t get one. I had to soak mine in a saltwater bath every night for six months, and it was extremely sensitive for the first year. If I moved it at all it would bleed. And now I still check it and clean it every day. But I love it. My boyfriend loves it. It’s our little secret. And it’s also important, because it’s the first thing we did together as a couple, and he’s the only person who’s ever seen it. It means a lot to me. I’m going to keep it forever.” {Source: Allure}

“I Love Surprising People with It”

“I got my piercing about four years ago, during the summer after my sophomore year at college. I had wanted it for a minute but didn’t know I would actually go through with it until I was checking in at a piercing shop about the price and logistical stuff. Before I knew it, I was topless and flat on my back as my pierce, Zoe, poked a pretty long needle through my nipple and left it there while she prepared my jewelry. That was weird. It hurt a lot, and honestly, if I had known what it would feel like, I may have skipped it. I am really glad I have it, though, and I love surprising people with it. It makes my nip much more sensitive, which I like, because I didn’t really have much sensitivity before. I’ve heard most women with larger breasts have less sensitive nipples. Not sure if it’s true, but it was for me.” {Source: Women’s Health Magazine}
