Quotes from Piercing FAQ
Piercings of the clitoris are not performed as often as piercings of the clitoral hood; few women are good candidates anatomically. To be pierced safely the clitoris must be large enough, at least ¼» wide, to support the jewelry and the hood must not constrict around the jewelry. If the jewelry is constricted or twists under the hood the piercing may migrate, reject, tear, or scar. Jewelry in a horizontal piercing may twist if the wearer's pubic area is narrow or if she has large outer labia.
An exposed clitoris may be pierced horizontally or vertically. If the clitoris is hooded a vertical piercing using a barbell is advisable to avoid twisting of the jewelry. Rings are suitable only if the clitoris is exposed or very loosely hooded.
Some women seeking a clitoral piercing lack sensitivity because the glans of the clitoris is exposed and has been somewhat desensitized. A few women have written that they have experienced spontaneous orgasms immediately after piercing; this hyper-sensitivity usually recedes once the piercing heals and the clitoris grows accustomed to the presence of the jewelry.
Nerve damage is more likely to result from piercing a clitoris that is too small to support the piercing or from piercing through the shaft of the clitoris and through the dorsal nerve.
