If you are that worried about nape piercings. Then don't get one at all. And besides nape piercings are surface piercings where a plate is inserted under the skin properly. The professional piercer should measure the plate to be put under the skin properly to minimize the risk of rejection and migration. Under the nape area skin, there are still a bunch of muscles that protect the bones and nerves so there is nothing to worry about as no piercing practitioner will intentionally pierce your nape muscles. And because of the bar or plate inserted, the nerves will be properly protected. Breaking the paralyze myth on nape piercings.
