    I don't have one, but they're really hard to heal. Wrist or finger would not not be a good choice, as they're most likely to be irritated in those locations.

    I have friends who have gotten them and sorry but thy make me feel sick to look at as they are always infected and gross. I have a friend whose body kept rejecting her dermal anchors too, leaving her with big welty scars. I am not good with piercings though, can't stomach them but I love tattoos, weird!

    if i remember rightly they use a dermal punch to create the hole for the metal bit? ermm imagine a paper hole punch, they do basically the same thing, removes a tiny but of skin for the anchor to be inserted. i considered getting one but i dont know :s i have 12 piercings at total atm and 1 tattoo :D
