So I got the email back today, as of now I should be doing a subdermal 3d implant of brass knuckles onto my pubic region immediately under my waistline tattoo. Im super excited about this and wanted to hear anyones personal experiences with subdermal implants, both the pros and cons. Thanks guys.

Yay that's super awesome :)

 

As for experience, I had a pair of subdermal horns done in May.  Each horn probably took around 10 minute to do, from the time my artist started cutting it open to the time the stitches were all put into place.  There were 4 stitches on each one.  As for healing, one of them healed well and the other never quite did.  For the first week they were super swolen and tender although the swelling gradually went down mostly in the second week.  Shortly before they were really feeling healed, I it the right horn against the corner of a wall rather hard and it simply never healed after that.  It gradually started rejecting and I had to get it removed once I realized that the silicone from the implant was actually showing through the skin.  I currently still have the left horn and hope to be getting the right one implanted again in the next few months.

 

More recently, about a month ago, I got 5 subdermal ribs implanted in my right arm.  The whole procedure took about 2 hours total.  The two smallest ones had 3 stitches and the 3 larger ones had 4 stitches each.  They were extremely sore and tender for much of the first week, though the tenderness started gradually going down after I had had them in for a few days.  The swelling took a long time to go down completely, although it was 3/4 down by the time the second week had finished.  There were no mishaps in healing the ribs, however, and they are now looking and feeling mostly healed.

 

In both cases I got my stitches removed after having the implants in for around 2 weeks.  The removal of the stitches was completely painless.  The scrarring I have from the incisins is fairly visible, especially on my much fresher ribs, but I scar extremely easily and expect them to fade somewhat over the course of the next year.

 

I hope that helped a little bit.  If you have any questions, I'm more than happy to answer.

oh! since this is posted here, mind if i ask both of you a question, since I've heard it both ways? Is it true that you have to re-do these every so often? I've always wanted one, but someone told me that you'd have to have it redone every few years or so, which I'm not sure I wanna do.

That isn't something that I've heard and isn't something that my artist mentioned when he did mine.  For my horns, I will end up re-doing them at least a couple of times as I go up to progressively larger implants, but I don't believe I will ever have to redo my arm ribs.

Thanks for the response, I'm pretty sure it was just someone trying to scare me away from having them done ;) I feel a little better about that – I'm sure your artist would have said something. I mean, I'll still ask just in case, but at least now I can consider getting this done. Thanks, and sorry to hijack the topic, OP!
