This piercing is made through the loose skin along the underside of the shaft. Healing takes two to four months. Piercing depth is dependent on how much tissue is available to support the jewellery. Piercing width is usually between 3/8" and 1/2" wide. It is unnecessary for the penis to be erect during placement, however, the placement may change when the penis is erect. A series of frenum piercings is called a Frenum Ladder. A frenum piercing made at the base of the penis has acquired the name Lorum (lower frenum) If the wearer is uncircumcised the piercing is placed inside the foreskin.
- Barbells in 12 to 10 gauge and 1/2" to 5/8" in length.
