The Christina piercing, not a clit piercing
The Christina piercing is also known as the Venus piercing. It contrasts to the clit piercing the Christina piercing is placed a bit higher, where the labia meets. Where the clit piercing pierces the clit hood, the Christina is a surface piercing. Due to the anatomical differences concerning the upper meeting point of the labia the Christina piercing is not recommended for just anyone.
Due to the Christina piercing being a surface piercing means that firstly, the Christina piercing does not have any effect on sexual stimulation. it is a purely aesthetic piercing. Secondly, because the Christina piercing is a surface piercing the risks of rejection are quite high.
With a healing time somewhere around 3 to 4 months, the Christina piercing is well known for its high risks concerning complications. Because of its location the Christina piercing is exposed to a lot of friction. Being a surface piercing the Christina piercing is very vulnerable to migration. During the process of migration, the Christina piercing is also becomes very receptive to infections.
