Located on the mons pubis (the fleshy mound on top of your clitoral hood) a christina piercing sits just above where your outer labia meet. The piercing accepts surface barbell jewelry, and you can decorate it with different ball ends to change your style as you please. Unlike a clitoral hood piercing that boosts sexual pleasure, a christina piercing is purely ornamental and not designed to enhance sensation. To be eligible for a Christina, you'll need to have a good amount of meaty tissue at the area; feel around just above your clitoral hood and see if it's meaty enough to pinch - that's what this piercing needs to function.
Like any piercing, the Christina piercing will hurt during your appointment and while healing. The level of pain varies from person to person, but it shouldn't reach "Threat Level Midnight" cringe levels for most people. You can minimize the risk of pain by arriving at your appointment hydrated, full and not hungry or hungover, and well-rested.
Aftercare for a Christina piercing is simple and should be done several times daily. Using a saline solution and clean hands will help to reduce infection risk, but the most important thing is to leave your Christina untouched until it's fully healed.
Some of the potential side effects of a christina include jewelry that becomes embedded within tissue, which may require medical attention for removal; excessive bleeding; redness and swelling; scabbing; granulation tissue; and epidermal cyst formation. These complications can be reduced by finding an experienced piercer who is knowledgeable about the anatomy of this piercing and will be honest about whether or not your anatomy is a good fit for it.
