Microdermals ftw!

Three weeks ago I head in to get two surface piercings on my chest. The counter woman asks what I have in mind, which I tell her. She explains how she's absolutely loves the look of what I wanted, but also says to discuss it with the piercer as with things of that nature, the piercer is best to sit you with something. I wait about 45 minutes and now it's my turn to figure out what's going down, what jewelery will be used, ect. Georg asks what I want, and I explain it as I did for the woman ... read more

My wrist micro dermal (

My parents never really approved of piercings, so when I became interested in them, I tried to stick to my ears. After my tragus and conch, I was tired of that and became interested in surface piercings. One day I was looking around on BME and I decided to get my nape pierced. It took me forever to go into the shop and actually get it done because I was scared that it would hurt a lot and that my parents would kill me. Neither happened, so I wanted more. Once again I was one the site looking around for ... read more

My dermal anchors.

I've been getting piercings for about 3 or 4 years, and I'm starting to get bored of them. I wanted to start doing something new, and I was considering surface piercings, so I talked to my guy Dan (Epic, Davenport, Iowa) about doing some, and he told me how most of them rejected, and the scars associated with rejection, and all the complications that come with surface piercings. I'm a huge snob when it comes to piercings, and I simply could not accept surface piercings as a viable body mod. But, Dan also told me about a new mod he ... read more

Not-so-painful vertical nape microdermals

I'd had microdermals on my mind ever since I first heard about them. I have several mods, but never tried a surface piercing because of the effort it would take to heal it, and I didn't want to deal with the possibility of rejection. However, I've always liked the look of various unusual surface piercings, particularly nape piercings. I only really seriously decided I wanted to get microdermals a couple weeks ago, when I got that "itch": you haven't gotten a mod for a while, and you're just itching to get something new. I go to school in the five-college ... read more

My sternum microdermals- trouble, but worth it!

From the day that the article came out on BME about microdermals, I've wanted one. I put it completely out of my mind, however, because I figured no one in the area would be doing them yet, and I still didn't know where I wanted to get them.... My friend and I have a tradition, if one of us is getting pierced, the other goes and gets something too. She called me and told me she was getting a tragus piercing. She asked me what I was getting. I thought about it for awhile, and realized that I had no ... read more

Gives pop a whole new meaning.

I first learned about dermal anchors from an article posted here on BME. At this point I had made 3 attempts at healing surface piercings (1 sternum and 2 side navel,) and was excited to hear about a new technique that seemed to offer more stability to surface piercings, as well as allowing for placement that a regular surface bar would not. I was also happy about the possibility of have only one ball. SO off I go to my piercer and friend, Andy. (Shameless plug for Andy's amazing work and incredible patience with some one like me who asks ... read more

Finger Micro Dermal

The Finger Micro Dermal Op 24 mei 2007 stapte ik de zaak van Wim binnen, Needles & Pins in Hasselt dus, eigenlijk was ik daar om mijn beide tongpiercings een tweede maal te laten stretchen. Maar aangezien Jordy (een collega - piercer van Wim) de tussenmaat niet had van staafje en ik de guts niet had om in ene keer 1,2 mm te laten strechten, moest en zou ik iets anders hebben die dag. Ik had er zo naar uitgekeken dus was het wel een domper op de feestvreugde. Na de vraag of hij een piercing wou zetten in het ... read more

Prying Open My Third Eye (Part II)

Well what can I say that wasn't said before? Well for starters, hours after writing the BME story, "Prying Open My Third Eye", I was wiping sweat off of my forehead and out the jewelry went. The jewelry was in just fine, and the piercer did a wonderful job of placing it correctly, but my stupidity got the best of me and I was stuck with a hole in my forehead and a dermal anchor in my hand. I immedietly called the piercer who had done the procedure on me and told him what had happened. I felt a little ... read more

Prying Open My Third Eye

Well this whole thing started a few months ago when my wife and I went to a new shop for her to get her septum repierced. Our usual shop attempted the piercing twice and messed it up both times. Fed up with all the mistakes our current shop was making, we decided to do some research on the internet for a new location. After searching for about an hour we came across Rendezvous Tattoo and Piercing in Blacksburg, Virginia. We looked at John's online portfolio and was very impressed. Another bit of great news is that the piercer is the ... read more

Dermal Anchoring is Something to Smile About!

I had been looking into getting dermal anchors for about a year. I didn't know where I wanted them, or even if I wanted them, but I was definitely interested in the procedure. I asked my piercer, Kevin at California Tattoo in Citrus Heights, how dermal anchors worked. Kevin said he would gladly explain the quick procedure to me, and he also showed me the kind of jewelry he used for dermal anchors. I thought the whole process was really interesting to say the least and decided right then that I had to experience he procedure myself to really understand ... read more
