The flap of skin that covers the clitoris. Not all women have a hood, but it's not uncommon to find a woman with a hood.
When I got my hood pierced it hurt really bad, but now it's my favorite piercing.

The hood is a lower income crime riddled area. An unsafe place to live. Residents usually live in fear of life from day to day. Not a 'nice' place to live.
Vitalis family lives in da hood.

1. word used in reference to a ghetto area
2. someone who is from a ghetto area and stays true to that lifestyle of where they are from.
3. a lifestyle that wiggers, wigger bitches and wankstas alike sadly mistake for a trend thanks to the glorification of its negative aspects by crap rappers (ie: Lil Wayne) and try to emulate in an attempt to "fit in" and basically just rebel against their suburban upbringing, by watching way too much BET, wearing only brands that we wear in the hood (ie: RocaWear, Akademiks, Jordans, etc.) and using too much slang to the point where they just use words for the wrong purpose. they swear they hard but they all talk and wouldn't last 1 week in any real hood.
1. Jamaica (Queens), South Bronx, Bed-Stuy, Compton, LBC, etc.
2. shorty stay hood with it.
3. white girls that grew up in long island or any other quiet suburb and drive around in their cars and/or SUVs that daddy bought them and are spoiled rotten but swear they "hood" because they always use street slang, only date black guys, and only listen to the latest fad rap music but don't know the last damn thing about what it really means to be "hood."
