well lets be hones tht title says a good majority of what I am asking, but in all honesty yes this is what I am wondering I have very small breats anyway
so probably a 16g would be a good bet for me anyway
 
But if it was at all possible I would like to get 18g, I am one of those unique boy modification people that like having lots of stuff but I like small danityness. And I just don't want these being horribly noticeable either.
 
For lots of different reasons,  I still live with my mom even though this needs to be remided very soon. And I am hoping with Voc Rehab, and Disablity soon I will be able to get out of that house.
 
Also I just figure having smaller less noticeable mods is good for job hutning.
 
-_- joy for being judged by people right?...
 
but no me and my girlfriend want to go to a local piercing shop in Columbia in the future and both get our nipple piercings done together. But I am wondering about this.

The areola is made from some rather strong tissue. However, like all piercings they are subject to the possibility of migration (or the cheese cutter effect). A general rule of thumb is, the smaller the gauge, the greater the likelihood of migration. 14g and 12g are good sizes to start most piercings out with, including the nipples. It's possible however that you could successfully be pierced with an 18g and see no problems. Keep it clean!
I am pierced, therefore I am.

The thinner they are the more likely it is that you'll have trouble when you put pressure on them. Mine are/were 14g and I can't even wear a bra without causing irritation. This won't be true for everyone, but it's more likely at smaller sizes. If your concern is mostly about hiding it then maybe talk to your piercer about jewelry options. A 14g bar with small ends will look pretty similar to an 18g bar with (relatively) large ends when they're worn. There's also a good chance it would be hidden by clothing a lot of the time.

He may be on your side I said, but it makes no difference in the end -
He's coming after you my friend.

well I know for a fact my piercer is on here, and even though this something I plan on doing in the future.

I am gonna contact him and ask him about it.....so he can give me is take on things.
But I think it is possible to do.
