Nipple jewelry has been used to show strength by guards of Roman Caesars, and some historians say that Victorian women would pierce their nipples and hang a chain on them. Regardless, nipple piercings are not only very elegant, but also rather titillating to the wearer. The smallest jewelry men should consider is a 14g. Any thinner might grow out or tear and leave a scar if played with too much. Women need slightly thicker jewelry because their nipples are not only larger, but also subject to abuse from bras, etc. Generally a 12g is sufficient. Also, you may want to consider barbells instead of nipple rings, since they put less pressure on your nipples and generally heal quickly.
