Mpho Hlalele and his partner, Kagiso Kgaole, have been doing piercings and tattoos for years, and more ladies are demanding clit piercing.

WHEN they started the business in 2010, they wanted to help clients enhance their bodies.

But more clients are heading their way to spice up their sex lives.

Mpho Hlalele (37) and Kagiso Kgaole (37) from Bedworthpark in the Vaal, south of Joburg, offer punani piercings!

Recently, they posted a picture of a woman getting a punani piercing and social media went abuzz.

Kagiso saidthey’d always done piercings but didn’t advertise. Their clients do the piercing for sexual pleasure.

“We’ve done piercings on close to 20 women of different races and they love it,” he said.


Kagiso said the punani piercing is the current trend.

“Many people like it but some think it isn’t for blacks,” he said.

“We’re professionals and doing our work. We want business to grow and open new branches.”

Mpho said: “I’m a photographer. I take pictures and videos while Kagiso does tattoos and piercings.”

They wouldn’t disclose in detail how much they charge.

Said Mpho: “Tattoos depend on size and detail. Piercings depend on where you want it, but the cheapest is R300.”

  • People on social media had lots to say. Thamie Thamsanqa wrote: “Your job is difficult, man.”) Nthabiseng Monnanyana wrote: “You’re brave, you and your client.”
  • Thando Siyabulela Mkwayi wrote: “This is part of cheating in a relationship.”) Diamond Su wrote: “Some people just want to be touched by you.”
Mpho and Kagiso are the punani piercers.

A 36-year-old woman gave reasons to Daily Sun why she did the piercing.

“The piercing doesn’t only look sexy, it also enhances sexual pleasure. The jewellery increases pressure on the clitoris, and that’s why I’m happy all the time during intercourse,” one said.

Gynecologist Dr Hlengane Maluleke said if done under sterile conditions and by trained, accredited people, the risk of infection is minimal. He said there are no known side effects.
