2E.1 Triangle Piercing

4 to 6 months

This piercing is made horizontally through the loose tissue under (not
below) the shaft of the clitoris, above the juncture of the inner
labia and clitoral hood. The area to be pierced can be felt as a
triangular shape behind the shaft when the area is pinched with the
fingers. The piercing is stimulating to the wearer when the ring is
pulled, flipped up, or when pressure is applied.

The Triangle piercing is very anatomy dependent. The clitoris and
surrounding tissue must protrude from the pubic bone to allow for a
comfortable piercing. The clitoris and hood tend to retract when
standing, which may make the piercing uncomfortable or inappropriate;
the position of the piercing and the ring dimensions should be
selected accordingly.

Women with a narrow pubic area and/or large outer labia or whose
thighs compress the pubic area may find this piercing uncomfortable
because the ring will have a tendency to twist. In this case, a
symmetrical teardrop shaped ring is often more appropriate than a
round ring. The tapered shape of the ring prevents it from getting
caught between the outer labia and painfully twisted and pulled which
can cause the piercing to migrate or tear during healing. Most
frequently used dimensions are 1/2" wide x 5/8" long. Wearing a
thicker gauge will also reduce the risk of migration or tearing caused
by twisting of the jewelry.

Initial Jewelry: Bead rings or captive bead rings in 12 to 10 gauge
and 1/2" to 5/8" in diameter; the diameter of the ring should be at
least 1/4" wider than the width of the piercing. A ring which is too
small in diameter will constrict the piercing and cause the piercing
to migrate and scar. Triangle piercings often swell considerably
during the first 4 to 6 weeks, and the ring must be wide enough to
accommodate swelling.
