Types of Dermal Piercings

One of the benefits of dermal piercings is that they can be done almost anywhere on the body. This kind of versatility in placement can lead to incredible design options with this piercing.

Some of the most popular placements are:

  • Chest. Some will do a dermal in the center of the chest, other choose to do one on either side. It is completely up to you!
  • Wrist. Although you must be very careful with these, they do make for a very beautiful piercing.
  • Nape. Some customers have chosen the nape of the neck as their preferred placement. You can make them look like they’re done with a surface bar by doing two dermals, either vertically or horizontally, or choose to do multiple dermals in a triangle or diamond shape.
  • Third Eye. The third eye placement is somewhat contemporary and looks so unique! This is when the dermal is placed in the center of the forehead, just slightly above the eyebrows directly above the nose.
  • Upper cheek. This placement is when the dermal sits close to the eye, on the upper cheekbone area. These can be done in pairs, one dermal on its own, or some choose to outline their eye with them.


Aftercare Tips for a Dermal Piercing

Dermal Piercing on upper cheek – Almost Famous Body Piercing Dermal piercings need extra care, since it’s much easier to jostle a dermal out of place, or to have one catch on your clothes. Wearing loose fabrics during the healing process, particularly breathable fabrics like cotton, will help the healing process go much easier. If you play sports or go swimming, cover your piercing with one of our “Cover It!” kits. Once you are pierced, you will keep a band aid over the jewelry for close to 2 weeks when you sleep. This will give the skin and tissue in the area to heal around the piercing and keep your jewelry firmly in place. Your two forms of aftercare include non-iodized sea salt and fragrance free vegetable glycerin soap. You’ll soak your dermal with a sea salt and water mixture to remove any drainage from the piercing. You will also use glycerin soap to remove any residues from other products from your jewelry and keep the area clean.
