Surface Anchors & Surface Barbells
Surface anchors, also known as dermal anchors, have exploded into the body jewelry world in recent years. Their versatility makes them very popular. The anchor remains hidden under the skin, with the internally threaded shaft external to the body. The surface anchor uses threaded ends which can be changed to suit your mood. The effect of a single gem on the body is stunning. Surface anchors are spectacular on the face, torso, arms, and hands, but they can be used in many locations. With multiple surface anchors, you can make simple or complex designs on virtually any surface on the body.
Surface barbells are used for body piercings on flat areas of the body. The surface barbell remains fully under the skin, and the upright ends (usually angled at 90 degrees) are threaded. You can mix and match ends to your surface barbell for endless possibilities.
