This is my only dermal anchor (check out our stock of dermal body jewelry HERE!) – I got it done a few years ago here in Vegas shorty after I heard about dermal anchors because they were totally new to me.

I actually got this one done just down the street from where I live – a place called St. Ink’s.

I decided to get it on the nape because I thought it looked really cool in the middle of the tattoo! 😉

Neck dermal anchor

I want to get some more dermal anchors done in the future but I haven’t decided to where yet.

This one actually didn’t cause me that many problems when healing. It got a little swollen, and a tiny bit infected when it got caught on things like the scrub-brush when showering or doing other activities.

But other than getting my dermal anchor caught on things a couple of times I didn’t really have any issues with the healing and the piercing didn’t really hurt much at all ❗

It was just like a little needle just poking and digging around the back of my neck and once it was done, there was no more pain after that.

Microdermal Piercing – a new trend in Body Piercing.

Microdermal Piercing

Microdermal piercings are semi permanent body piercings.  You will also hear them referred to as dermal anchoring or microdermal implants.

Microdermals look pleasing and aesthetic and are rapidly becoming very popular. They are considered a cool alternative to surface body piercing because they are semi permanent . They are quick and convenient.

The technique and size is also so easy that you can have it done practically anywhere on your body. No special tools are required and the procedure is less invasive than an implant. The process is also more comfortable compared to the transdermal or sub dermal implants.

What Does The Process Of Microdermal Piercing Involve?

This basically involves a single piercing on the body where only the one part of the jewelry is visible on the skin’s surface. The other part is just under the skin, held in place by a titanium plate, which has many holes in it so that the tissue may grow through it, nicely anchoring your jewelry. To avoid any risks of rejection steel is usually not used.

The piercer usually cleans and marks the area to be pierced. The part to be pierced is pinched up and a 1.5 dermal punch is deftly inserted into the skin, straight down. After the hole is made, the piercer fixes the microdermal quickly. The whole thing barely takes an hour right from the time you arrive at the piercer to the time you are through! 😉

Even though the titanium plate stays under your skin once you get the microdermal piercing done, you can change the visible part of this jewelry after a couple of months.

However, they can be difficult to remove so consult a piercing professional if you need to have them removed.

What Jewelry Can You Wear?

You will find a variety of jewelry to suit this type of body piercing ranging from acrylic, gemstones and plenty more although titanium is the most advisable.

You need to be over eighteen and have a photo id to get a microdermal.

As with any body piercing, once the microdermal is done, your piercer will give you the appropriate care instructions. In spite of being a new kind of body piercing many people are going in for microdermals. Rejection of the piercing is quite rare when done properly. Healing takes approximately one to three months depending on the individual getting pierced.
