and it’s something I’ve heard many go “What is that!?” I am the new “owner” of a microdermal piercing. There are several methods and thankfully, my artist uses a “dermal punch”. I know I know, now I’ve got you going HUH? I can’t take any pictures for a few days as I’m following my tattoo artists rules to a T since this is a new experience for me.
The simplest way to describe the jewelery is that of a miniaturised transdermal implant, i.e. a flat plate which sits beneath the skin with a single exit for a barbell post giving the visual effect of jewellery (a bead, spike, etc.) that appears to be screwed right into the body (BMEzine.com)
You can literally have a microdermal implant placed well, anywhere you have skin. It took some time to think about where to put it but Bob(tattoo artist) and I decided in the small of my back to accent my lower back tattoo. And honestly, I slept on my back last night, I’ve been leaning in chairs during class today, and I have no idea that the microdermal is there.
Sorry I can’t provide pics yet as I just have it covered still!
