Just out of curiosity, what company are you getting your gem's from mspiggy?? That sounds like a reaction to the (probable) foil backing?


I got my dermal anchor jewelries from http://microdermal.com/

You should clean/irrigate them as often as your body needs it. If there's more discharge, more; if less, then less. Usually about 3-4 times a day. Warm saline soaks are highly recommended for daily cleaning, but you are going to have to 'baby' these piercings pretty much for however long you choose to have them, as they are known to be much more problematic for clients to 'fully' heal.

I'm getting the five dermal anchors tomorrow. Wish me luck! (: Thanks for the advice.

P.S. Feel free to post more. <3

Right. I would suggest Anatometal or Intrinsic's Precision Surf tops, as they don't use foil backing in either.

Can anyone tell me anything about changing the tops of an anchor?

lots of changing usually isn't very nice to the piercing.
you will also probably need some help from your piercer. i've only had mine changed by my piercer (and only on very few occasions). in my experience, tops tend to like to stay on.

Generally, yous should choose the 'tops' of the anchors you're most pleased with, as changing them too often/soon will most likely only complicate the healing of the anchors. If you really are insistent on changing out the gemmed ends, I generally tell the majority of my clientele to wait at least 4-6 months until that point. If done prior to that, the likely-hood of the base (foot) of the jewelry shifting inside of the skin is much more likely, and in-turn, would irritate the anchors overall as well.

I'm getting them today. I didn't think I could change them often but I've seen some star tops I want to purchase after the initial gem then I will probably stick to those. My piercer told me to see her when I wanted them changed. I just didn't know if it was something I could do on my own.

It's always best to have the piercer themselves switch out the tops for anchor piercings. Much less likely for issues to occur.
