The placement of this piercing is in the pubic area - generally done central but can be done in different designs depending upon how creative the client and piercer are. The best jewellery to use for this is Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) bars until healed as they promote healing of surface piercings like these.

The area is first cleaned with an antiseptic wash or cloth. Following this, upon careful examination to ensure balance, the area is marked (preferably with Gentian Violet an antiseptic dye). The marking process may be repeated if your piercer is uncertain of the symmetry. Clamps may be used to restrict the area, and some piercers will spray an anaesthetic on the region. A needle is then used to pierce the pubic area, leaving crescent shaped holes that a ring or bar is placed in. The minimum suggested size is a 10 gauge bar, though some piercers believe that using a larger bar (14 gauge / 1.6 mm) will prevent migration.

This picture depicts a pubic piercing. It is located on the skin right above the base of the penis, and several centimetres down from the belly button.
