Quotes from Piercing FAQ
INNER LABIA / LABIA MINORA
The amount of inner labia present varies with the individual - some women may have available tissue an inch or so wide, while others may have the barest, thinnest inner labia, too delicate to hold jewelry. Labia piercings can be stretched considerably after healing.
Initial jewelry: Captive bead rings, bead rings in 14 to 10 gauge, ½» - 9/16» - 5/8» in diameter. Circular barbells may have a tendency to unscrew with friction from walking.
A thicker gauge should also be considered if the wearer enjoys rubbing or heavy friction during sex or if she uses a vibrator frequently. A thicker gauge will feel more comfortable and will be less likely to pinch or tear.
Occasionally a ring or extrusion of soft scar tissue will form around the entrance holes. This scar tissue is thought to result from excess moisture and irritation caused by friction or pulling against the wearer's clothing, thighs or the opposite labia. Keep the piercings dry during daytime activities by wearing cotton underwear to absorb perspiration and rinse away excess perspiration. Salt water soaks are very soothing and will aid healing. Usually the scar tissue recedes as the piercing heals.
