dermal anchors and skin divers body modification

In some parts of the US, it is illegal to receive a dermal piercing from someone who is not certified. There are some locations in the body where dermal piercing will not work due to tissue type and possible body movements. Dermal piercings are prone to the same risks as any other piercings. An infection, rejection, tearing, and snagging are definitely possible risks of having a dermal piercing. It is also important to know that the removal of a dermal anchor will probably result in lifelong scarring of the wound.
