Genital beading is a body modification which involves the of beads under the skin of the shaft of the penis. These are done primarily for the purpose of physical stimulation (for both the wearer and their partner), as well as everywhere for aesthetic reasons.Genital beading is more commonly done by men, but, recently, a handful of women have adapted this mod as well.
It is important to note that not all sexual partners enjoy the feeling of genital beads. If your partner doesn't like studded dildos and condoms, you may want to consider not getting this modification. Also, the legality of this procedure varies from region to region, but in general, similar laws apply to small-scale beading as apply to genital piercing.

For men, shaft skin and the foreskin can fairly easily heal genital implants, but they are not possible in the same context in the glans (head) of the penis, nor are they possible deeper under the skin (see Deep Genital Implant for more on that procedure).
Usually spherical 1/4" stainless steel, titanium, silicone, niobium or PTFE beads are used, but there are numerous other options both in terms of size and shape. It is important that the material be biocompatible to minimize risks.
Genital beads are usually placed by using one of two methods:
Beads can be placed using a technique very similar to a Frenum Piercing, except that the jewelry is left entirely inside the wound, rather than with the ends protruding....
Pros: Simple and fast procedure, no more painful, invasive, or complex than a genital piercing. Suitable for normal piercing studios and home practitioners.
Cons: Two incisions required per bead (entrance and exit of needle), and limited in terms of maximum bead size.
Genital beads can also be placed in a similar method to a standard 3D art-style.... Pros: Allows for almost anything in terms of size and shape to be implanted. Only a single incision is required, even if an entire row of beads is implanted, resulting in no scarring other than the one incision, which can be hidden at the base of the penis.
Cons: Invasive and requires medical knowledge in addition to standard piercing techniques, as well as being more painful.
Healing and Aftercare
Once in place, the implants are, essentially, permanent, although they can be surgically removed....
