Quotes from Piercing FAQ
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 with pressure on the hood and clitoris.
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 when she walks may find this piercing uncomfortable because the ring will have a tendency to twist when standing or walking. 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 labia, painfully twisted and pulled, which can cause the piercing to migrate or tear during healing. Most common dimensions are 3/8» to ½» wide by ½» to 5/8» long. Using a thicker gauge will prevent tearing and can reduce the discomfort of twisting. The ring should be widest at the 1/3 that is worn through the piercing to allow for swelling.
Bead rings or captive bead rings in 12 to 10 gauge, 5/8» - 11/16» - ¾» inside diameter; diameter should be at least ¼» wider than the width of the piercing to allow for swelling.
