7 Microdermal Piercing Myths

What You Need to Know About Microdermal Piercings Microdermal piercing, like Monroe piercing,  is a procedure that is performed on the skin to allow an anchor piercing and jewelry to be inserted. This piercing is only visible from the surface of the skin, but it is different from a surface piercing because it involves embedding a titanium implant in the microdermal layer of the skin. This implant has several holes to give room for skin growth, hence stabilizing the piercing further. This procedure is performed on any flat skin surface and can be possible in parts of the skin that are less accessible to standard piercing. There are several types of piercings, but the common ones are: Back dermal piercing, finger dermal piercing, ear dermal piercing, chest dermal piercing, face dermal piercing, ear dermal piercing, and hip dermal piercing. The procedure is usually performed using a dermal punch or needle. A microdermal punch is less painful, so it is commonly used. The process starts by identifying the point of piercing. The area is then sterilized and marked with a surgical marker. The microdermal punch is then used to remove skin tissues. The anchor is then placed below the skin and a piece of jewelry is placed using surgical forceps. The entire procedure takes about an hour. Microdermal Piercing Myths There are several myths on this procedure that have been propagated over the years. The following are some of the common myths concerning dermal piercing and the truths behind them. 1. Piercing on certain parts shows someone’s sexual orientation. Basically, there is no right or wrong part to pierce. You should pierce the area that you are comfortable with or the part that you picture being pierced when you look in the mirror. A piercing can never change your sexual orientation. Celebrities, both male and female, wear all kinds of jewelry. They do not care if what they wear are earrings for men or women. 2. Multiple piercings cause allergies to jewelry. Any professional piercer is always keen on using and inserting biocompatible materials to your body. Commonly used materials include 14k gold, titanium, implant grade steel and/or niobium, and others. Different people respond differently to these materials. Some people tend to develop skin allergies with cheap or costume jewelry because of the high nickel content. Many chain stores sell plated jewelry, which can create allergic reactions to the body when used; thus, caution should be exercised when buying jewelry. 3. Body jewelry can set off metal detectors. The recommended professional grade body jewelry is non-magnetic, so it cannot be detected by metal detectors. 4. A lower back piercing can damage...

15 Navel Piercing Fails

There are a lot of people out there who think that body piercing is just about pinching a piece of flesh and poking it with a sharp object like a needle or syringe.

Unlike other body piercings, getting multiple piercings on your abdomen can easily go over the top. The design ends up looking cluttered.   5. One sign of poor piercing technique is the end result when a would heals. Reddening of the wound is common when the piercing is new, but if it continues for days, then you might want to have it checked.   6.
