I was dying for another piercing, and I stumbled upon microdermals. I'll admit, a year ago I would probably have never done it. But I've branched out more with piercings, and I have to keep them hidden at my professional job. I immediately fell in love with the look of back dimple dermals, so I went to see my piercer and bombarded him with nervous questions. He showed me the anchor, explained exactly how it worked (though I researched enough to know), and reassured me that it wasn't bad at all. Guys, do NOT rely on YouTube videos!
I got them last night and love them!!! I went on youtube bad idea to see how the procedure was done, needless to say i freaked myself out quite a bit.. Well anyways I went to my regular shop the wait was a little long but oh well. My friend n I finally get in she marks me ( i didnt have dimples lol) she had me lay down take my deep breath n pinch i was like ok seriously thats it??? shes like dont jinx urself well i did because the anchor didnt wanna go in. After wat felt like 10 mins of pressure it went in.. Then on to number two. Deep breath n holy cow i felt that one.
I've contemplated getting anchors for a couple of months. My brother (aka my tattoo artist) has a new piercer in his shop who does them. I was sitting in the shop last night while my boyfriend was getting inked, and I mentioned to my brother that I wanted to get dermals. He called his piercer over and told her to hook me up. I had no plans on being pierced last night, but I was suffering from some anxiety and pain is always a good release for me, so I though, why the hell not? I chose permanent studs.
So when I first got my dermal anchors in I absolutely loved them, still do but they still have their times. They really didn't hurt that much, it just felt like some weird tugging under my skin. Had them both in for about 9 months then noticed that my right one was starting to reject. I finally went back to my piercer and decided it was time to take it out. He removed it with a scalpel and it was just a quick slice. Left it out for about 5 months and then got it put back in.
I've had my dermal anchor a week ago today..
I love it so much, and there hasn't been any problems so far..
I have slept with my bra on every night, first 3 nights also a bandaid over it, to be as sure as possible i wouldn't pull it out in my sleep.
About the pain, it wasn't so bad. I thought "oooooooow", and then we were done, and i forgot all about that, and were completely happy i did it.
