There are multiple kinds of hip piercings that you can try on and variations regarding it. You can choose from surface hip piercing and micro dermal hip piercing while making your decision!
Surface Hip Piercing vs Microdermal Hip Piercing
As it is already mentioned before, one must do as much research before choosing a piercing studio. It is important that you chose your piercing studio wisely so that you don’t come across any complications.
The piercing shop would always start by cleaning the area of the skin no matter what kind of material you are getting for the hip piercing. After the sanitation process, the piercer will use different steps and instruments to get you other surface hip piercing or micro dermal hip piercing.
Surface Hip Piercing
Surface piercing employs a surface barbell as the piercing jewelry for it. It is started by creating a perforation on the skin from where the barbell can pass easily. it will also make a tunnel like an object under the skin which would be hollow. The material that is used by the piercer could either be a needle or a scalpel. Surface hip piercing is rather a traditional way of getting pierced, and so the chances are that the method will be the same as is with other parts of the body. The piercer will use a clamp to hold the skin together.
Pinching the skin with a clamp is important as it helps to make a perforation faster. It also makes the process a bit less painful. Needle surface piercing is rather getting obsolete because of modern equipment that has come into the market like micro dermal piercing. Some even believe that a needle is not very trustworthy and has higher chances of rejection of piercing while the micro dermal piercing would reduce any such chances and is more accurate.
There is another procedure too which is done using the help of a scalpel. The scalpel is used to create a hollow pocket beside the tunnel underneath the skin. This is also better used than needle piercing because not only is it less painful but chances of rejection also reduces manifolds. After the creation of a tunnel or pocket, the barbell is inserted into the skin!
Microdermal Hip Piercing
Microdermal is a more inventive and newer option for piercing your hips. Microdermal piercing can be done in two ways, that is, by using a needle and by using the dermal punch. If you would want to go ahead with the needle option, the piercer would first clean the area of your skin near the hip with a special tool called a surgical scrub.
After getting the area cleaned up, the piercer would perforate the skin in a very unique way. That is, he will not puncture it in a plain shape but rather in the shape of the alphabet L. This technique is specially used so that the jewelry stays well in place. Creating an L shape also created a pouch inside the skin. The pouch is created where the plate and the anchor of the jewel are put. After making the L shape hole in the skin, the professional will use a surgical tweezer or a pincer to put the jewelry inside in place. These tweezers are alternatively known as the forceps. The jewelry plate is put inside first and following it goes the top bead.
The jewelry top is then twined to the anchor and the micro dermal piercing is hence completed. At the same time, the dermal punch hip piercing is totally different from this one. Instead of creating an L shape tunnel, the dermal punch takes some part of the skin tissue out providing some space for the jewelry to go! This is better than the needle micro dermal hip procedure because it helps to reduce the risk of getting the jewelry into the deeper layers of skin. Besides, it is not that painful and is also time-saving!
