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.

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.

If you have piercings of your own, you may have experienced those moments of frustration when you just can’t get your fingers around those little tricky Ball Closure Rings! Those rings that won’t open, or those threaded balls that seem to fall on the floor and disappear into thin air… Jewellery Pliers are the solution to most of these difficult tasks when fitting or removing your body jewellery. The most common perpetrator is the Ball Closure Ring, (similar to smooth segment rings, bar closure rings etc) which require pliers to remove the captive accessory from the jaws of the ring. Jewellery Pliers come in different sizes and for different purposes. You may also need jewellery pliers to help you open very large, thick pieces of jewellery that require quite a bit of strength to pry them open! 

Ring Opening Jewellery Pliers

Ring Opening Jewellery Pliers are used to gently disengage a captive (clip-in) ball or accessory from a ball closure ring, or similar piece of jewellery. Most people with piercings have experienced those tricky little segment rings, bar closure rings, ball closure rings… you name it, we’ve heard it!

To use ring opening jewellery piers, you simply squeeze gently on the handles of the pier, which in turn opens the ring slightly and enough to allow the captive ball to fall out. We highly recommend doing this over a towel or table where you won’t lose the removable accessory!  Continue reading
