A magnificent risk…
The Surface Piercing is one of the hardest piercings to performed, as Charlie says. It is one of the last lesson stages of a piercer trainee, because every little detail counts for the longevity of your piercing.
The correct placement choice, the exact entry and exit point of the needle, the correct bar type, its size and its material, they all play an important role in the durability of your piercing. Say ‘No’ to PTFE, to straight or curved barbells, as they will surely reject leaving behind them a scar. Say ‘Yes’ only to 90 degree surface bars with a wide base.
Healing would take on average six to twelve months, but each person heals differently. Surface Piercing has an abundance of placement options, which along with our wide jewellery range makes it a popular piercing.
Please, carefully read and follow our Aftercare Instructions and take very good care of your piercing to avoid any complications. We are with you for the entire healing journey, with free checkups and advice along the way.
That being said, Surface Piercings do have a high rejection rate, even after years. We have seen some that last for a decade or more, so with good minding and a bit of luck, yours could last years. In general though, they should be considered as semi-permanent so please be aware of this before committing to them.
