Here’s a bit of a difference about the surface and dermal collar bone and neck piercing as well as the list of celebrities who have got it done!
Surface Collar Bone Piercings
Surface collar bone piercing is different because they have an entry and an exit point which is made by removing a small piece of the flesh using a needle. A surface bar is pushed inside the created space and it comes out from the other end. Each end of the bar has some kind of jewel that remains exposed, the bar, on the other hand, remains inside the skin.
Surface piercings are more prone to migration and rejection because they are super close to the surface of the skin. But the good news for the people who get their surface piercing done on their neck has lesser chances of getting their piercings rejected. No matter where you get your piercing done, looking out for a skilled piercer and following good aftercare will definitely help you avoid any kind of problems that are related to a piercing gone bad.
Dermal Collar Bone Piercings
Dermal piercing is the kind of pricing that goes deep within the layers of the skin by piercing the dermis. It is not like Surface piercing which has an open and exit point and has only one single point for fixing in the jewel. The jewel sits on top of the skin while the piercer puts in the anchor in the removed part of the skin,
Usually, dermal piercing is done using a dermal punch and people wear a diver with it which has a sharp edge and a very decorative top that could be any material available. Other methods of punching in the skin can be done by using needles and a small scalpel. The anchor is then inserted inside the space which runs parallel to the skin. The decorative top of the jewel gets attached to the anchor.
The anchors are better chosen by people because the jewels get changed in this kind of piercings. Thus you can change whatever the jewel according to the occasion. Many people get multiple piercings in a row and mix the designs. On the other hand, if you decide to go with the dermal punch and diver, keep in mind that you’ll require to exclude the jewelry completely if you fancy to switch things up.
