Q:I want to get my nipples pierced for personal reasons but I'm painfully shy about my body. I'm definitely not comfortable with stripping down for a stranger, even for clinical reasons. How can I get my nipples pierced and preserve my modesty?
I really have no idea how to answer this. You might be able to figure out how to just expose you nipple without taking your entire shirt off? The only thing i can think of is wear an undershirt or something with appropriately placed holes in it? (sorry if that sounds weird and creepy) You could ask your piercer for suggestions too.
Other than that, your piercer is much like a doctor and sees whatever body parts you want pierced on a daily basis. There is a difference between “stripping down” and taking off clothes for a piercing/medical procedure. To be completely honest, if you aren’t comfortable with taking off your shirt for the piercing, then maybe it isn’t the piercing for you.
