Arms can also accommodate implant-style piercings.

The upper and forearm can also accommodate surface piercings and dermal anchors.

These can be arranged in different shapes, from triangles to armbands, which run all along the arm.


Jewelry options inculde traditional rhinestones as well as innovative designs. It all depends on the statement you wish to make.

Many people get piercings on their arm in order to bring out an existing tattoo.

As always, anything goes, as long as you like it!


Those who get their arms pierced need to take special care during the healing process, given that the arms are constantly engaged in everyday tasks.

A piercing or a dermal anchor on the arm takes about 4-6 weeks to heal, depending on whether you get a surface piercing or two dermal anchors. Keep in mind that due to the constant movement of the arms, this piercing will be under constant stress and may suffer in the long run.

A surface piercing or dermal anchor can take between 1 and 6 months to heal completely, rarely longer. Like other external piercings, in the first three weeks it should be cleaned with ProntoLind spray twice a day, and then coated with ProntoLind gel. It is important to wash your hands before touching the pierced area and the jewelry itself. By caring for the piercing in the correct manner and with the proper materials, you can do a great deal to prevent the onset of proud flesh.

Disinfectant solutions containing alcohol or chlorine should be avoided.


I advise my customers to opt for a dermal anchor, because this type of implant lasts much longer than surface piercings.


Microdermal piercings can be performed on the hands, the arms, including upper and forearms.

Virtually anything goes, as long as you like it and think it looks good!

As you can see on the pictures, there are different arrangements to choose from, such as a triangle. Others go for an armband style.
