While body piercing as a form of body modification has been around for centuries in various forms, microdermal piercing has just recently emerged as a fresh new trend in the Body Piercing community.
While the trend of microdermal piercing is new, its form and process of getting it is surprisingly simple. Staying true to the "simple is better" quote (or in this case "simple is beautiful"), it 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 under the skin, there to be kept in place by a plate with holes that allows your skin tissue to grow through it during the healing phase. Due to risks of rejection, the plate with holes is best made of titanium instead of the conventional steel.
Again, Microdermal Piercing is a very simple form of body piercing in its own way. It doesn’t require specialized piercing tools and they usually don't require the use of anesthetics since the procedure is generally no more painful than a regular surface piercing. What piercing enthusiasts need to know about this form of body modifications that although it’s a simple form of procedure it still requires a pair of steady experienced hands of a piercing artist. Caution is also advised when picking the spot for your microdermal to avoid the likelihood of it getting snagged and pulled out. The healing process in the aftermath is usually 1-3 months in which is implied of you to keep the microdermal clean, dry and away from factors that can irritate it.
When it comes to aesthetics the microdermal again shines with its simplicity. Due to its size and form it can be placed on any part of the body the piercing enthusiast desires. It’s because of their form of being a semi permanent body piercing, people like to form dot to dot pattern with their microdermals. Be it a star constellation or adding some precious gemstone jewelry to that crown you tattooed several months ago. The possibilities are endless and it’s limits are only in the minds of the those who wish to try an alternative to surface body piercing.
