Dermal piercings were born around the early 2000´s, evolving from the micro-piercings; in reference to a trans-dermal implant (body modification used both in a medical and aesthetic context). The dermal piercing has won popularity since its body rejection is very low compared with the surface piercings, it can be placed anywhere in the body, even the flat areas where the piercing can’t go.
