The Microdermal (Surface Piercing) Page....


If you have been searching for an online resource describing exactly what's involved with microdermal piercings you wound up on the right page. In the next 5 minutes you will be a microdermal pro, and hopefully come down to Tattoo Lou's to get one for yourself. Remember although the process of inserting a microdermal may sound easy, it is best to leave it up to the pros at Tattoo Lou's. The likelihood of infection, or serious injury can incur from not having proper piercing training. We would like to thank Kristine for performing the piercing for us, and Alecia for being our piercing victim for this article.


So what are Microdermals?


Microdermals are one of the newest and most popular new piercings available! Microdermal jewelry allows you to wear a single gem or flat disc in many areas that were previously unsuitable for "regular" piercings. These small pieces of jewelry are inserted underneath your skin with as little effort as a regular piercing. Your skin adheres to the jewelry, stabilizing your piercing. You can get a single microdermal even many to draw out a pattern. Microdermals can even be combined with tattoos making the ultimate piece of body art. Check out the column on the left for microdermals all performed at Tattoo Lou's.


So lets show you exactly how the PROS at Tattoo Lou's do a microdermal piercing..



Microdermal Jewelry comes in two pieces. The anchor and the jewel. Basically the anchor is what sits under the skin and keeps the piercing in place. At Tattoo Lou's not only do we offer a huge selection of microdermals, they are all constructed of the HIGHEST quality titanium (which is the safest to use for microdermals) and 100 percent MRI safe. Remember regardless of who pierces you, it is very important to always use safe and sterile jewelry. In general, all anchors are basically the same. What makes microdermal jewelry look different is the jewel screwed into the anchor post which can be changed to your liking. Below is a picture of what microdermal jewelry looks like. The two complete microdermals on the right illustrate two different size heads.

Aftercare for a microdermal is very similar to that of a regular piercing. Keep the Band-Aid on for 3 days removing only for showers and cleaning. Wash around the area of the piercing twice a day for 2 weeks using Antibacterial Unscented Dial Soap or a Salt/Saline mixture. Stones can be changed after microdermal is fully healed and options are almost endless. So come down to one of our Long Island shops today and pop a few of these shiny suckers in your skin.
