Surface piercing are similar to microdermal piercing as they both lay underneath a layer of skin, rather than piercing entirely through a part of the body. This means they can be done almost anywhere on the body. The surface piercing however often shows itself as two (or sometimes three) piercings atop the skin, while a metal bar sits below the surface connecting them and holding them in place.
Popular Placement for Surface Piercings
Hip piercings, eyebrow piercings, nape (back of the neck) piercings, bridge (between the eyes) piercings are all types of popular surface piercings that use a bar to connect two points above the skin.
But basically any piercing that goes underneath the skin to join two points rather than through the body itself (such as a cheek or nose piercing) can be considered a surface piercing whether that means it’s on your wrist or leg! Just keep in mind that many parts of the body are more conductive to a surface piercing, while others like the fingers and hands are more prone to rejection.Read More
