The hands too can be pierced or adorned with implants.

Hands are always on display, and are a popular choice for implants and piercings.

We always recommend a dermal anchor for the hand, because it is better protected and lasts longer than other forms of piercings.

Under no circumstances should you get the area between the thumb and the index finger pierced, because it invariably causes problems.


Those who choose to get their hands pierced have to take extra care during the healing process, simply because hands are in constant use in everyday tasks.

A piercing or a dermal anchor on the hand 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 hand, 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 arms and forearms.

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

There are different arrangements to choose from, such as a triangle. Others go for an armband style.
