    Posted: March/23/2010 at 12:06am
Hi,

I'm looking to have two forehead microdermals done (professionally) as little "horns". Does anyone have any experience with forehead microdermals and can give me some information about them, e.g. placement, healing, problems? I'm finding very little information on the internet as a whole about them, and some pictures, but very few of that particular placement.

I'd love to gather any info I can, especially first person and pro experience. Thanks! Big%20Grin

I had some. I took them out though in favor of getting the 8g from anatometal in the next couple of weeks.

Mine actually healed with no problems at all. I also know a couple other people with them that it's worked out fine for as well. Placement wise it's pretty much up to you I prefer them closer to the hairline.

I bled quite a bit. But, eh I'm a bleeder what can I say.

By far the least painful and quickest healing piercings iv ever got. The only problem i found so far is if your hair dresser is unaware you have them done and they catch one of them with the comb, but even that didnt do any noticeable damage.

I'm considering some in the '3rd eye' placemet, but my microdermals have rejected for before (albeit in different areas), and i'm not sure i fancy a red bump in the middle of my forehead if it does reject....

Ah I had exactly these! Go check out my profile to see some pics, I think I have some pics of it!

As previously said, by far the least painful thing I've ever had done! Not very much blood but a little. Yeh, catching can be a bit of a bitch. Especially putting on shirts and stuff. Combs aswell, that can be painful!


One of mine rejected, and the other migrated. I don't know other peoples feelings on it, but I think they can be a bit temperamental. Mine were sore for almost 2 years of having them. I eventually scalpeled them out myself because they were literally pointing in different directions.

I think they are bloody great, and despite what happened to mine, I would definately have them done again!!

Any more information you need babe just give me a message!


OH, edited because I wanted to say, you can barely see the scars where mine were, but I have dimples because I had to cut out alot of scar tissue aswell! I think you can sometimes see the scars in my pictures!

Thank you, fellow Bmoders! I had thought about rejection and scarring, but I have so much scarring over my body already that another would just add to the collection, so I'm not too worried, I guess. :D However, I've never rejected a piercing, just experienced a slight touch of migration in my navel. So I think all should be good, just as long as I heed the warnings about snagging and such. That's been a tremendous problem with my helixes too.

Please, keep the information coming!

I have them as well, but in the middle of the forehead (like a vertical bridge).
So far i had no problems, only the bottom one is sometimes a little red, because it is exactly in the position where the forehead makes a curve, hence i assume it will take more time to settle down.

I would say that they won't certainly last forever and i know this, there are high chances of rejection since it's an high movement area but since i will tattoo there in many years scar don't scare me.

Good luck with them!

I know they've been done millions of times and turned out perfectly fine, but this always kind of freaked me out...

Good to know, about the inward travelling infection. It seems to be very rare in cases of implants, and I can't find any documentation that this has happened to forehead microdermals, but it's still excellent information. Thank you for posting that.

I like the last bit of the article:

"It can not be emphasized enough how incredibly important it is to monitor your healing (and healed) body modifications, be in good health, and generally "in tune" with what your body is doing."

Good stuff.

As far as I know inward traveling infections are much more of a risk with transdermal implants. I can't see that being a problem with forehead microdermals as long as the piercer knows what they're doing because microdermals aren't that deep in the skin and the procedure is much less invasive than a transdermal procedure.
 
I've had three microdermals right down the center of my forehead for 6 mos+ now and I haven't had any problems with them. Foreheads are a good place for them in my opinion since it's a nice flat, low motion area.
 
I know you're looking at a "horn" placement, but as a little advice to anyone who's looking to put them anywhere else on your forehead: make sure you're aware of any creases in your forehead when you raise your eyebrows etc. I had some strong creases in my forehead when I raised my eyebrows and I placed the microdermals right between them and I havent had any rejection problems due to movement :D
