    I've been thinking about it for awhile and I am pretty sure I have my mind set on going tomorrow and having it done. I told the shop I'd be there around 5pm.

    I'm not sure if anyone has one here but if you do or any surface piercing have you had any problems with rejection if so how bads the scaring? I'm really worried about the rejection / scarring.

    The shop is tryin to tell me it's better to get a microdermal cleavage piercing but I don't like the look of it, from far away it looks like a giant mole between boobs.

    And I know I'm not supposed to ask if it will hurt, but I know it will already but is the pain based on personal tolerance? I've seen videos on youtube where one girl is screaming bloody murder and another just lays there and goes "oh that wasn't to bad" What was everyones experience? I've handled tattoos directly over my collar bone no problem and have my nose pierced but nothing this major.

    I'd like some feedback before I go tomorrow.

    Thanks

    If you're going to go with a surface bar see if the shop can do the dermal/taper method.

    You could always also just do 2 microdermals and it'd look like a surface bar piercing.

    The thing holding me back from 2 microdermals is they want $60 a piece for them! The surface is only $40.

    Granted as far as I know it's still buy one get one half off, but I'm not sure I want to drop $90 tomorrow.

    It's because microdermal jewellery is way more expensive. :dunno: I just got a micro a few weeks back. Healing much better than a surface ever will.

    If you do go with surface be sure they use a proper surface bar and ask if they do the punch/taper method.

    I'll ask them that for sure. They have a myspace with all their work. Here is the only sternum/cleavage piercing I can find in the piercers "portfolio"

    Not sure if you can tell from the pic.

    can you explain what the punch/taper method is?

    They take a dermal punch and make 2 holes, then take a taper/skin elevator and make a "tunnel" from hole to hole and put the jewellery in. This method makes a more natural "tunnel" for the jewellery to go in and heals better than doing it with a needle.

    I'm already nervous as heck and that sounds super scary and like it would hurt a lot :eek4:

    my luck I'd bleed all over too, I had to sign paper work when I got my nose done and I put I don't bleed easy because ususally don't. I bled for like 10-15 min after my nose was pierced and it was pretty bad I guess... I didn't open my eyes...LOL

    It's really not that bad at all. Nose bleeding is a common thing, I had lots of customers nostrils bleed heavily after being pierced.

    I can't wait to get my micros. now that i found a guy that does them and has done an asston of them, i'm getting them as soon as the money issues are settled.

    having seen a lot of surface bars migrate and reject, i'd rather go with micros...

    in hindsight, i shoulda done that with my nape, but i dont like the idea of getting them cut out if i grow tired of it.

    the shop i went to said that dermal punches weren't allowed yet in fla, or something, so it was anchors or a normal needle piercing. i called around my town, and no one could do the punch and taper method. :dunno:

    you know anywhere down south that will do it? so far i don't think my nape is rejecting/migrating, but i plan on removing it the second i'm questionable.

    xplora, in regards to pain, not nearly as bad as i was expecting. kinda like having a noob try to find your vain to draw blood.

    A dermal punch is considered a medical tool and it's against the law for a non-licensed person to use a medical tool for a non-medical procedure in Florida :hs:

    When people first started doing them they were using needles. :dunno: Maybe they're still using that shitty method.

    A lot of piercers are still using them. :dunno: It's just not as advertised I don't think.

    It usually needs to be reported. I had 2 friends from Florida scalpel another friends tongue. His college professor found out, got the shop name out of him and reported them. They both received a year in prison and a $25K fine. :noes:

    I think it would be awesome to get my tongue split. Too bad I could never balls up for it.

    i'm doing it probably within the year. was going to do it before the summer was up but some family things have kept me from wanting to not speak for 2 weeks while it heals.
