I just got my microdermal hip piercings 2 mos ago.
I did a lot of research first before choosing the method as I was going to go for surface piercings to begin with.
They look nice
If your lucky they might last a year
They have a 99% rejection rate and can leave massive scarring
More painful to have pierced than the microdermal method
More difficult to keep clean
Discomfort level afterwards is annoying
A shift in weight change might alter the look of where the piercing is placed
They are much quicker and less painful than surface piercings.
Microdermals are replacing surface piercings.
They only have a 30% rejection rate
Super easy to keep clean and snag free
No discomfort the day after
They look and feel healed in 2-3 wks
Fully anchor under your skin in 2-3 mos
Super easy to remove if they reject and leave minimal scarring
Super easy to change the tops
A shift in weight change will not affect piercing placement. (Many moms go through preganacy without their hip microdermals being affected)
easily snagged in the shower! NO loofas!
take a full year to compleatly heal as they heal from the outside in.
choose your location and spacing wisely! They are permanant
Typically have to be removed as a scalpel procedure
Trauma may cause them to reject (snagging)
The pros far outweigh the cons.
I absolutly love mine! No issues whatsoever. They are virtually pain free, have only snagged one in the shower once, didnt cause any issues though. I got them right above my pant line so clothing causes no issues. They look amazing. They are quite the unique piercing, not everyone has them.
The place I got them pierced wasnt cheap, $75 each. Cheaper isnt exactly better, they guarantee them. If they reject they take them out, heal them up and repierce them for free.
One of my most favorite peircings! I went with the needle method rather than the biopsy punch method. It leaves a smaller hole so the jewelry doesnt slip out and heals faster.
Good luck! If you find me on facebook : Tara Roberts you can see the pictures!
I have 25 piercings:
9 ineach ear including tragus
Nose, navel, tongue, nipples and 2 microdermal hips
