What It Really Feels Like to Get Your Nipples Pierced
It’s important to go to a reputable piercing shop and choose a piercer you feel comfortable with. All items used by your piercer should be pre-sterilized and opened in front of you. For the piercing, you’ll want a straight barbell. Titanium, steel, and gold work best because they’re less likely to cause an allergic reaction.
How painful is a nipple piercing?

Are nipple piercings worth the pain?

Should I wear a bra to get my nipples pierced?
The most important consideration is moisture buildup; wear a bra that allows your skin to breathe, and if you sweat, remove your bra, clean your piercing, and then put on a new bra. The small ring won’t make a big difference in cup size, and a snug bra will feel better during the healing process.
