Piercing, just like tattoos are not only fun but a great thing to get addicted to. Some people just can’t get one and want another right afterward. For people who already have their helix’s, their septum’s and their tragus’ punched, they will know that after it will come to the rest of the body parts – the belly, the nose, the nipple, and perhaps a dermal piercing? (Or to those who are in the medical field, a transdermal implant.) But even before you read about where you should get one, you must read all about it.
Unlike regular cartilage or indeed belly button jewel, a dermal piercing is what’s distinguished in the field as a ‘single-point surface piercing’. Not to jargonize it further, this suggests that it’s more complicated to adjust, tidy up and attend to because it doesn’t penetrate the skin, fairly it’s planted in and remains inside the dermis layer with a hook holding it in its original and desired position. There’s no exit point in this kind of pricing.
But how does it happen? and why do people, especially celebrities go for it? Well, a qualified and experienced expert would sterilize and clean the area and will then use a dermal punch machine to remove a bit of flesh. He can also use the needle to create an L shape hole and then using the dermal forceps he will insert the anchor inside the area with space.
A dermal piercing is then held onto the position and is used to keep the piercing in place which is preferable at the 90-degree angle. It acts as an anchor and makes sure that the piercing does not experience rejection or migration. Anyway, get inspired by the list of celebrities who tried their hands on dermal piercing too!
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 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.
List of 28 Celebrities With Dermal Piercings
1. Cardi B Dermal Piercing
Seems like Cardi B has spent a lot of her time adding some fresh piercings and making some tattoos on her skin which she says is an artistic journey.

In the first two videos, Cardi is viewed relaxing back in a comfortable seat in her Atlanta home puncturing her skin with two dermal piercings in her chest, appending to the one she possessed before.

The dermal are then inserted in the middle layer or the skin. One can get it any place they want but the skin must be quite flat for this which includes your face, fingers, etc. They look like you have diamonds studded on your skin.
As per the video, one can also notice that the pain was there, based on Cardi’s reactions but to be honest, it all boils down to each’s own pain level tolerance.
