If you’re considering nipple piercings, know that they are slightly more complicated and potentially painful than many other piercings; you should do a little bit of research before diving into the process.

As with any body piercing, you can expect some sharp pain as the needle pierces your skin, but the level of pain will vary from person to person. Nipples contain more nerve endings than many other piercing areas, so they are generally more sensitive and painful to pierce, but many people report that the pain is less than they anticipated. If you know you have particularly sensitive nipples, you can also ask your piercer to apply a topical anesthetic spray before the procedure.
Yes, but there are some things to know. Though flat and inverted nipples are common and pierceable, you’ll want to consult with your piercer beforehand to see if they have any concerns. In some cases, your piercer may recommend using a curved needle and bent barbell on an inverted or flat nipple in order to reduce the pressure of the jewelry pulling the nipple outward while it heals. They may also want to use a slightly larger gauge needle and jewelry — 10 or 12 gauge instead of 14 — since they’re less likely to move and cause complications in flat or inverted nipples.
Supernumerary third nipples may be smaller compared to regular nipples. Put simply, it is a third (or more than three) nipple on the body. The condition is more prevalent in men than in women.
