Intimate Work Protocol

For all intimate work, there is a safety protocol to follow. This is a strict studio policy that cannot be altered, so please keep this in mind when organising travel if you are coming a distance to visit us. This describes the entire process from start to finish so you know exactly what to expect each step of the way.

  1. Before booking for your piercing, you must book in for an intimate piercing consultation. This is to check your anatomy is suitable for the piercing you are looking for, and to talk through the process and answer any and all questions you may have. Please note that a second member of staff will be present at your consultation and piercing.
  2. There is a 24 hour cooling off period after your consultation to ensure that you can make an informed choice about your piercing. This means that your piercing appointment must be booked at least 24 hours after your consultation. There is no limit on how long after your consultation you need to book – You can book weeks or months in advance depending on travel and your availability.
  3. At your piercing appointment, we will run through the aftercare advice with you again and give you another opportunity to ask any questions that you may have thought of in the interim period. Once you are ready, we will perform the piercing for you.
  4. At your consultation, we will recommend a timeframe in which you will need to return to our studio for a checkup where we can downsize the length of the jewellery for your comfort and the long-term stability of your piercing. Once you have returned for this checkup, the process is complete and you will have a piercing that will last a lifetime!

Intimate Piercing FAQ

How do I prepare for my consultation or piercing appointment?

To prepare for your appointment, we recommend having a shower the morning of your appointment to ensure you are clean and comfortable. You may also want to bring some wet wipes to freshen up with beforehand as well, although this is entirely personal preference and depends on what you feel comfortable doing.

Wear clean clothing that makes you feel confident and comfortable, and that won’t feel tight or restrictive. Jogging bottoms, leggings or a comfy skirt are ideal! We highly recommend bringing a clean pair of underwear and a pack of sanitary towels (for both male and female piercings) as you may experience a small spotting of bleeding after your piercing.

We recommend eating a good meal with protein and complex carbs a maximum of four hours before your appointment, and to drink plenty of water to ensure you feel good and are nicely hydrated. We don’t recommend drinking the day before your appointment or after your appointment, as this can affect the smoothness of your piercing procedure.

You are more than welcome to bring a friend or partner to chaperone your appointment. We also recommend bringing a list of any questions you may want to ask, as sometimes it can be easy to forget them!

Can I request a piercer of a specific gender?

Whilst Rogue has multiple piercers of various genders, it is not always possible to guarantee booking your piercing with a specific gender piercer. Certain complex piercings are only offered by our senior piercers, and so a specific gender cannot be requested. As a second member of staff is required to be present for all intimate piercings, it cannot be guaranteed that an all-male or all-female team will be available. Often a mixed gender team will be available. However, we will always endeavour to work with you to make you as comfortable as possible.

Can I see your intimate piercing portfolio?

Yes! You can request to see our intimate piercing portfolio. This is available on request in studio only, and you must book in for an intimate piercing consultation. We can show you examples of the piercing you are looking to receive. This portfolio is not available online at any point, for the strict privacy of our clients.

Can I have an Intimate Piercing while on my period?

You absolutely can. We recommend wearing a tampon or menstrual cup so that you feel more comfortable during the piercing. Please note, you may feel some extra sensitivity or discomfort if getting a piercing while on your period.

I have undergone HRT or Gender Confirming Surgery. Can you still pierce me?

If you are planning for an intimate piercing and are undergoing/have received HRT or gender confirmation surgeries, please get in contact so that we can advise you on your specific situation as each person is so different! We generally recommend waiting at least 12-18 months after beginning HRT or after surgery before getting your piercings, as your body can change a huge amount in this time. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions!

We use the terms ‘male’ and ‘female’ in our intimate piercing descriptions for ease of use for the general public. Rogue is a trans and queer friendly studio with nonbinary and gender nonconforming members of staff, and will use any and all pronouns or language that makes you feel most at home in your body.

What type of jewellery will I wear?

Each intimate piercing has huge variation on what type of jewellery is appropriate. The most common types are BCRs, curved barbells, and straight barbells. All jewellery is manufactured in the USA to the highest standards, and is made from ASTM F-136 or F-1295 compliant implant-grade Titanium. Most intimate piercings are performed at a heavier gauge (bigger thickness) for security and long-term stability. Depending on the placement and personal preference, this is usually anywhere from 14g (1.6mm) to 6g (4mm).

Once healed, there is a huge amount of options in terms of upgrades. We highly recommend custom ordering unique jewellery from Anatometal if you are looking for an intimate piercing curation. Contact kat@roguepiercing.co.uk with any jewellery queries. You can also follow us on instagram to see more examples.

Inappropriate Behaviour

We know that an intimate piercing can be a source of gratification for some clients, however inappropriate behaviour during your piercing is not accepted and will result in a permanent ban from Rogue. We do not accept sexual harassment of any kind to any member of staff – This includes verbal harassment, attempts to touch a member of staff or yourself inappropriately etc. Although this behaviour is incredibly rare, we hope you appreciate the need to raise awareness of this for the wellbeing of our staff.

Piercing Images

We understand that on occasion, it might be best to send us a photo of your piercing in order to troubleshoot any issues. We request that this is performed via EMAIL only, and please clearly state in the title of your email that there will be an explicit image in the body of the email. We do not accept unrequested indecent images via email or DM, and if we receive multiple indecent images we will ask you do not contact the studio again.
