Nipple Piercing Jewellery

Piercing Procedure
Ready to get a nipple piercing? Use our store locator to find your local Blue Banana Studio. There’s no need to book an appointment; you can simply go to the store of your choice and be pierced on the day. 

Make sure to check the nipple piercing age restriction before coming to store. It can help to avoid any undue disappointment. In a Blue Banana studio, the nipple piercing age restriction is 18 where ID is a requirement. This is the same in England and Wales.

Once you’re all booked in, you will have some forms to fill out. A member of Blue Banana staff will go through the steps and can help you pick out jewellery. Then you can meet the piercer! They too will give you a quick consultation and briefing before discussing the nipple piercing location. 

Nipple piercings are usually pierced with a straight barbell and can be changed later to a ring or BCR. Your piercer will use clamps to pinch the skin to keep it taught while they pass a needle through the piercing site. They will then insert the jewellery. You will have the chance to check you are happy with the location before the piercer starts the procedure.
Aftercare Advice
A nipple piercing can take 6-12 months to fully heal. The exact healing time varies from person to person and will need top aftercare to ensure successful healing. 

During the healing process, it is important to avoid knocking the piercing or putting pressure on the area as this will slow down healing and can even cause unnecessary problems. During the healing process, wear a soft bra or loose clothing to prevent the piercing from being rubbed or caught, do not go swimming or participate in any other water-based activity including hot tubs, and do not let anyone put their mouth to your nipple as this can introduce bacteria. Avoid applying any types of cosmetics to your piercing, including moisturiser and perfume. 

When cleaning your nipple piercing, make sure to wash your hands with antibacterial soap before touching your piercing. Gently clean your nipple piercing twice a day with salt water solution or Tea Tree Oil by bathing it using cotton wool.

Choosing Piercing Jewellery
There’s plenty of options when it comes to nipple piercing jewellery from Blue Banana. Some popular styles include: 
  • Nipple Piercing Bars 
  • Nipple Piercing Barbell 
  • Nipple Piercing Jewellery 
There are a range of colours and designs to choose from in our nipple piercing jewellery range. When choosing your piercing jewellery there are a few things you should consider: 
  • Jewellery Size – Make sure to find out from your piercer the size your nipple piercing jewellery should be. 
  • Jewellery Material – piercing materials differ not only through their look but also how they could react to your skin. If you have sensitive skin that is prone to irritation, one of the many Titanium jewellery options is recommended. This material comes in a variety of colours and is durable too! 
When searching for a piece of jewellery make sure you know your measurements. We display the piercing jewellery measurements as Gauge first (displayed in millimetres) then Diameter/Length, e.g. 1.2mm x 8mm. 
  • Gauge – this is the thickness of the jewellery itself. 
  • Diameter – the width across the widest point of the jewellery for hoops and rings. 
  • Length – the length of the piercing bar, usually not including the ball. 
Make sure to check out the tips from our piercing guides for information about changing and removing piercing jewellery.
