If you’re looking to make a statement with your body piercing, why not consider surface piercing jewelry options? What you’ll find is that adorning the body with barbells and other fun accouterments can be a fun and exciting way to decorate yourself.
A surface piercing is double-ended piercing options that have are threaded underneath the skin. They are embedded into the second layer of skin, or dermis, so you won’t have to worry about anchoring the hardware in place. These are called surface barbells or surface piercing bars. When you have it properly placed, the only thing seen is the two dermal tips that screw onto the post secured underneath the skin.
The fun thing about surface piercings is that they can adorn many different areas of the body. Here are some of the most common:
