Surface Piercings

Surface Piercing is something not a lot of people may have heard of. Chances are a lot of people have seen it and been confused. When I first saw it I was shocked, freaked out, and slightly intrigued.

Surface Piercings are piercings where the entry and exit holes of the jewelry are on a flat piece of skin bot a body part that sticks out like your ears.

One popular surface piercing is the corset. This is where a person has a number of surface piercings which are laced together to act like a corset. It is usually on the small of a persons back or on the sides of their stomach like a corset would be. Another popular place for them is on the back of the neck.


Surface piercings are not always the most successful though. They are at high risk for rejection, when the body rejects and pushes out a foreign object being the jewelry.


Make sure if you want a surface piercing do research first. Find a piercer that is experienced in surface piercing. if they can show you pictures of the surface piercings they have done that have healed that is good. A good place to look for a good piercer near you . It is the website of the Association of Professional Piercers. It will also tell you a lot about piercing in general and what you should know also general aftercare instructions.

    I got two sternum suface piercings about five months ago. I haven’t changed them yet because it hurts to unscrew them. Should I go to a piercer to have them do it?

    • If it hurts to unscrew them it might not be healed yet or it might be infected or irritated. Going the piercer might be a good idea.
