Dermal Anchor Kit

New this month at Body Jewellery Shop we have everything you need for handling dermal anchors with our brand new Dermal Anchor Kits! These superb kits include all the tools you need to insert and change dermal anchors. All the tools in our dermal anchor kits are professional quality, machined in medical grade surgical steel. Each kit contains eight dermal anchor tools including micro forceps, insertion tools, tapers and bead grabbers. Due to the delicate nature of dermal anchor jewellery, we recommend having a professional piercer change and care for your anchors using this kit.


What are Dermal Anchors?

Dermal Anchor Micro Dermal

Dermal anchors are very small implants, also known as micro dermals. In many ways, dermal anchors can be said to be a cross between a piercing and a traditional implant. To the left is a standard dermal anchor. As you can see it has a long foot with a round bead on top. The foot is placed under the skin and only the bead is visible on the skin surface. The bead is threaded and can be unscrewed and replaced with other accessories. Dermal anchors are quite delicate and need a lot of care to heal well. Even after healing they remain delicate, hence our recommendation that you have a professional piercer do any jewellery changes.


Dermal Anchor Attachments

Dermal anchors are a great way to combine the look of an implant with the comfort of a piercing. They do require a lot of care and attention during healing but once your anchor is healed why not make the most of it with one of our new dermal anchor attachments? These internally threaded attachments look fantastic when in place and they are a great way to show off your dermal anchor. We have just added sixteen new dermal anchor attachments to the Body jewellery Shop online store, so check out or new range for lots of cool options.
