Labia Piercing

A labia piercing is a female genital piercing can be done on either the inner or the outer labia. They can be located anywhere along the length of the labia. Generally, they can done in pairs or multiples, but can be a single also. The jewelry is usually a 14 gauge for the inner labia and a 14 or 12 gauge for outer labia. The jewelry can be captive rings, bead rings, or circular barbells and they should be made of titanium, surgical steel, or 14 to 18 karat gold.

The healing time for an inner labia piercing is 4 to 6 weeks, and 2 to 3 months for the outer labia. Cleaning the piercing properly is very important to protect the genitals. Begin with a saltwater soak to soften crust buildup. Gently remove the buildup with a cotton ball or gauze. To fully rinse off the piercing, do so in the shower. A cleaning solution, such as Safecare Plus, is suggested to further clean the piercing. Place a few drops of the solution on the piercing and lather. Gently rotate the jewelry while cleaning the piercing. Rinse off the Safecare Plus after 1 to 2 minutes. After the shower, completely dry the piercing and jewelry with a paper towel.

It is important to make sure the piercing parlor you choose is sterile and safe. If the piercing parlor is not sterile it is possible to contract infections such as hepatitis and HIV. Sense this is such a delicate piercing, the piercing professional should have experience with this type. At the parlor, the first step will be paperwork to read and fill out, stating what piercing you will be getting, the risks, and aftercare instructions. If you are under 16 years of age, a parent will need to sign approval.

When it is time for the piercing, the instruments, jewelry and piercing professional need to be sterile. Some parlors will use reusable instruments that have been sterilized. However, most parlors will use fresh, single use instruments. These instruments and the jewelry should be in sealed packages that will be opened in front of you and the technician should always be wearing gloves.
