Prince Albert piercing

The Prince Albert (PA) is one of the more common male genital piercings. The PA is “a ring-style piercing that extends along the underside of the glans from the urethral opening to where the glans meets the shaft of the penis.” The related “reverse Prince Albert piercing” enters through the urethra and exits through a hole pierced in the top of the glans.

While some piercers may choose to avoid the nerve bundle that runs along the center of the frenulum altogether, others will choose otherwise.[citation needed] The piercing can be centered if the bearer is circumcised. Otherwise, the piercing must be done off-center because the surrounding skin needs to be able to reposition itself dynamically.
