How old is too old to get a nipple piercing? You see, I’ve always wanted one. I’ve always thought they were very cool and super sexy. I always told myself that when I got into shape, I’d get my nipple pierced. I did get into shape once, but I didn’t feel like I was in good enough shape at the time to warrant fulfilling the promise to myself. I don’t think anyone is really satisfied with their bodies, and I should have been back then and I wasn’t. Ok, I’ve gotten off topic. The thing is, am I being silly wanting a nipple piercing at 40 years old and out of shape? It’s something I’ve really been contemplating lately. I’ve even had dreams about it. So please give me your honest answer. I kind of feel like I’m being silly about it, and I’ve passed the age when I could have had it done. Plus, I’m not in shape, which has always been one of the things keeping me from getting my nipple pierced. What do you guys think?

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    I got mine pierced as my 40th Birthday present to myself! I love it!

    You’re never to old to get a piercing (except maybe tattoos). I personally don’t like them and when you get much older it just looks weird.

    I had my Prince Albert when I was 46 and my nipple the following year. The nipple never fully healed until finally I just took it off.

    I can tell you that the nipple was a lot more painful because if you don’t have a very visible nipple the piercer has to clamp it so he is able to pierce it. My PA was much less painful.

    Ultimately, only you can decide.

    All the best

    It’s not silly. I’m 52 and thinking about it still. My husband has one and I do find it sexy. I say go for it!

    I say go for it too. You live once. You can always take it out if you don’t like it.

    Do it. I had one, but when I had my heart surgery, it had to be removed.

    Analogy: The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is today. Go for it if it makes you fill good! Enjoy life.
