The Prince Albert piercing is the most popular of male genital piercings. The PA piercing, pierces through the skin at the tip of the penis. Or if you are after the technical terms, the piercing enters at the frenulum and exits at the urethra.
The Prince Albert piercing has some great benefits – a popular one being sexual pleasure. In most cases, this can boost sensitivity for yourself and adds an extra texture for your partner.
Frenum Piercing

Placement is usually around a circumcision scar for circumcised clients, or further back if you are uncircumcised.

Common Questions

Does my size or if I am circumcised play a role at all?
In most cases – no! However, if you have any concerns or questions, it would be best to give your local salon a call and book in for a consult (this is a highly specialised piercing – so not all salons offer it, best to give your local Essential Beauty a call).
How is this piercing done?
Male intimate area piercings are highly specialised and are performed only by piercers who have a lot of experience in performing male genital piercings.
The process of your piercing will be similar to the below:
  1. Your piercer will use gloves to sterilize the area
  2. Mark the entry and exit points of the piercing
  3. They will pierce through the marked area, you should take deep breaths while they insert the needle
  4. Forceps are used to gently hold the skin while they insert jewellery
  5. Clean and bandage the area


To receive an intimate genital piercing you must be at least 18 years old, it is very important to bring a photo ID with you on the day.
