i got two microdermals under my collarbone in november...one ripped out in january when i flipped my hair over my shoulder...no pain, no blood, just...pop! the second one ripped out 2 weeks ago, when it got caught in my scarf. it didn't take a whole lot of force to rip either of these guys out...what gives? why were they so easy to jump out of my body? i would like to try them again, but i'm worried that they won't "anchor" themselves very well.

i bandaged them down for a week after i got them, but they still didn't sit very close to my skin. and they were almost always acting up, they never healed. i'm wondering if the inflammation may have caused them to rip out easier.

how do you guys ensure that your micros stay in there?
of course it fucking hurt

Mine have been in a year now (also clavicle area), one of them was ripped out while I was putting a dress on :S. But we put it straight back in ;).
It's not a very fleshy area, and they seem to be pretty prone to migration there. Hair, clothes etc are always getting caught on mine, you just have to learn to be careful ;). It's second nature to me now to do things a little differently to avoid them.
Taping them down of a night can help if you're starting to see more of the post. You should keep at saline soaks too, they'll help, esp' with the irritation and having "never healed". They'll soothe and settle it, making the area less likely to reject the anchor. 
What was your aftercare routine, and how long did you stick with it? When I first got mine I was saline soaking them ten minutes on, ten off three times and taping them down of a night for about two months, tbh,
and kept them taped down for most of the day for a week or so too.
They're not a very 'stable' piercing, and require a bit of commitment if you want to keep them :). Even after the initial healing period, no matter how long you've had them, they're always going to need a bit of maintaince and a good saline soak etc every now and then :).

I had six on my clavicles and they all rejected on me. It's a hard area to keep them because of the movement and rubbing from things like seatbelts etc. Catching things on them is pretty common with that placement as well. Like the last poster said clothing, hair, jewelry if you wear necklaces are all hazards and you have to be careful not to snag them on things. Surface piercings really are hit or miss so there are no guarantees either way. I had my microdermals for a few months and then within the last month or two they all decided to start going one by one. No guarantees here unfortunately, you just have to be as careful with them as you can!

god!!
does everybody has problems with their microdermals?????? 
i've talked to goat_feet  about it and have decided to get microdermals in my chest again
this is my story:
i had 2 chest microdermals and despite some incidents while placing them they looked good and nice, then pus appeared, they got all red and bumpy, like they where in the top of a big nasty red bump.
i lost the left spike, the piercer couldn't find the anchor to get it back in so he had to cut a little and since then it was ok, my left microdermal lost the red bump and till now it looks healthy and happy, but my right one continued to stay on the bump and started to reject, so it had to go, leaving a scar.
now i'm waiting to get my right microdsermal back + 3 more and i'm getting 2 clavicle surfaces too!!! let's see which one lasts more!!!!!!!

I refuse to lose my mdermal. I have one just above my cleavage. It has it's days where it looks completely fine but then if crusties form underneath the gem and I move the wrong way, it gets irritated and I have to use a q-tip to remove the crusties and let it settle down again. I tend to wake up on my sides in the morning which is probably a bad thing considering I have rather big boobs and it probably gets crushed in my cleavage at night lol

andddd I'm off to shower and baby my dermal since it is rather upset with me today. not as bad as before though.
Don't judge me monkey...

I would suggest a microdermal with one large hole in the front of the foot, rather than two small holes.  They seem to do better for my clients.  Also, make sure the feet are titanium.  Be wary of placement, and the way the foot faces under the tissue.  Baby them, cross your fingers, and good luck!

I've had so much trouble with my eyebrow, it's ridiculous.
However, I WILL make them stay!

haha, at least im not the only one who has issues with them. i think i'll try again, i already have the scars anyways.

nicoleslavich: which way should the feet point? mine pointed diagonally outward from the piercing.

my aftercare was to tape them down for a full week, then at night for another few weeks, and H2Ocean. When they got fussy I did SSS and taped them down, but it didn't seem to help. If I get them again I suppose I'll go straight for the SSS instead of H2Ocean.

Thanks kids :)

I had three microdermals rip out accidentally.
The only one that I have managed to save is one on my arm.
I took the bead of, and it's like it doesn't exist.
If I want to put a bead on, I have to scrape crud out of the threading.
