A dermal piercing is a type of dermal anchor, which is also sometimes referred to as a microdermal piercing or single-point piercing. Unlike other piercings, which pass through a piece of tissue of skin, a dermal piercing only has one point of entry. The top of the piercing is visible as a bead or jewel on top of the skin, while the bottom of the piercing is embedded just under the skin.
Dermal piercings are relatively new types of piercings. They are, however, quickly becoming popular among body modification and piercing enthusiasts. Dermal piercings can be placed almost anywhere on the body, particularly on flat expanses of skin that can otherwise not be pierced. Although men can and do get dermal piercings, these types of piercings are often requested by women. A dermal piercing can add a little bit of mystery, intrigue, and sexiness to any woman!
