We will not do anymore than 3 in any one sitting because of the nature of it. You can read below why anymore than 3 or “dermal projects” aren’t a good idea.
We use titanium dermals bases and tops, this means you are highly unlikely to get a reaction from the metal. We only use 4mm dermal tops as anything bigger or small isn’t as practical during the healing process. If it is too big its harder to clean and if it is too small it could push under the skin. We have tops in many colours so we’re sure you will find one you like, here are the colours we do:
Don’t know who a dermal works?
A small titanium base is fitted between the skin layer and the fat layer in the body. a small tube of skin is removed and a space is made for the dermal foot to sit in. You can pretty much think of dermals as buttons for the body. This is what the dermal looks like without a top on and whats sat under the skin:
You don’t see any of the foot once it’s in.
Where can you put them?
You can pretty much put them anywhere BUT do think hard about where you are putting them.
We advise against hands, fingers and feet as the blood flow isn’t as strong in these areas, you are always using your hands and feet therefore more likely to get pulled out and feet are usually cover with shoes and socks etc. If your having them in wrists you need to be SUPER aware that you have one there for the same reason of hands: pulling sleeves over, putting your hands into things, holding bags.
Faces are a great place to put them but they don’t always settle well, especially between the eyes (like a bindi). They look great but there’s not a great success rate for them surviving as our staff and other body piercers have found through personal experience.
And girls, if you’re having a dermal in your face, be careful with the makeup… If can really mess up the thread and will leave you needing to take it out!
I’m bored of the top, can i change it?
Yes you can! We advise coming in to see us for your first change as they can get very “clogged up” and stiff. We can help you get it off, after the first change it should be a lot easier to change.
We have tops as small as 2.5mm to as large as 8mm!!! We also have a couple if shaped ones like star and hearts and we’re always getting new designs in but designs on dermal tops are still fairly limited
