my problem with this blog is that they try to give too much concrete information. the human body is just too unpredictable, too different to ever give absolutes. our bodies are capable of rejecting our own organs, imagine what it can do with an actual foreign body..
in the case of surface piercings (dermal anchors, surface bars, hell, even eyebrow piercings) rejection can, and will happen. the tricky part is not knowing when the rejection will happen. you could have a surface piercing for six weeks, six months, six years, sixteen years, there’s just no way to tell. as a piercing technology dermal anchors are only about 5 years old, so that is about the oldest one so far. yes, the better they’re done, the better they’re treated, the more successful they tend to be, but to tell people that they’re permanent is just irresponsible. i try to explain this to clients, and remind them that it’s better to be happily surprised, than to count on something that may not work out for them.
and switching them out every 2-3 years? how the fuck does that make any sense at all? so you’re going to remove your surface piercing and then redo it every few years? that’s just goddamn nonsense.
