Vertical Clitoral Hood

Vertical Clitoral Hood

A clitoral hood piercing is a female genital piercing through the clitoral hood surrounding the clitoris. There are two main types of hood piercing, the vertical clitoral hood piercing and the horizontal clitoral hood piercing. As the name indicates, the difference is in the direction the piercing is oriented in the skin above the clitoris. Neither of these piercings penetrates the clitoris itself. Like most genital piercings, these piercings have relatively short healing times, due to the amount of blood flow to the area. Healing Time: 8 – 12 weeks
