Urology/vasculature of the penis


Doc wrote at 2010-05-24 17:56:27
i have had a prince albert piercing for about 18 months now.  the guy that pierced me has been doing this type of body modification now for about 8 years and explained to me that many of his customers have bled for only a day (which luckily was my case) and customers that have bled for nearly a week!  everyone is different.  some people don't take ink very well when getting tatted, some scab even from the lightest handed tattoo artist, and some people bleed longer with a piercing.  and, if i'm not mistaken, the penis, when cut or pierced, is a capillary bleed which means that it will bleed heavily.  i don't know if this will help you out any, but hopefully it will ease your mind.  and also, if any of your, customers plan on gauging their piercing, they should only go up a maximum of 2 sizes (i.e. if they are pierced with a 12 gage, they should gage to a 10, to an 8 to a 6 and so on).  take it easy bro
