Full Answer

Most Prince Albert piercings are centered and placed near where the glans meets the shaft of the penis, though in uncircumcised penises, the piercing must be made further from the shaft and slightly off center to accommodate movement of the foreskin over any body jewelry. A reverse Prince Albert is similarly positioned but is located along the top surface of the penis rather than the bottom.
