Titanium surface anchors or microdermals are one of the newest innovations in body piercing. The titanium surface anchor is a one-piece design, made of 6AL4V ELI F-136 implant grade titanium, and comes with a healing cap. The length of the 14 gauge post or rise is available as 3/32", 1/8", and 5/32".
Any 14 gauge Industrial Strength brand end will fit the titanium surface anchor.
Surface anchors are installed anywhere on your body just under the skin with the threaded post sticking out. Obviously you're not going to install these at home unless you're a professional piercer. We're making these available so you can purchase both the surface anchor and an Industrial Strength brand end of your choice then have your favorite piercer install it for you.
See: Shannon Larratt's BMEZine.com article on microdermals and surface anchors. The article includes many pictures of surface anchor piercings, a brief history of microdermals and surface anchors, as well as a discussion of the various ways to install them.
There is also a wealth of articles and pictures of microdermals available on BMEZine.com.
