Microdermal Monday

24 Oct

I searched Microdermal Piercings and I saw the word Tygon, what is that?

Tygon is a type of plastic tubing that can be used for piercings. I would not recommend it for microdermals because unlike titanium it needs to be replaced after so many months because it does break down.

 I have recently heard of microdermal Tongue Piercings.

Some of the risks of these are chipping your teeth, just as with a tongue ring, infection, and tearing.

This is basically a more perminate tongue ring.

Who should I go to for my Microdermal Piercing?

For this I will answer the same thing I would answer for a tattoo, go to a piercer you trust, but mainly go to a piercer who has done this before. Although, they are not as perminant as a tattoo, tissue is removed to do this process so make sure you get someone who knows what they are doing. Ask around before you jump in.

I want one in my hips but I am worried my pants will get snagged on it, can you elaborate?

Alright,  I am making this my topic today because last night when I showered was the first time I ever snagged mine, and that was on a bath poof, so that could have happened with any microdermal. Mine does not get caught often, but my jeans do rest right near it. Sometimes I do need to adjust my pants so they are not rubbing against them, its just a slight uncomfort, but nothing to serious that it should stear you away from getting the piercing. I am careful because I do not want them to get ripped out, but I do not plan my day around making sure they do not get ripped out.

“I have to get an MRI soon, does that mean I have to take my microdermal piercings out?”

No, you do not need to remove microdermal piercings when getting an MRI, they are made from titanium which is not magnetic and often used for long term use.

Any other piercings such as belly button, tongue, nose, etc. do need to be removed though. For those who do not know some tattoos can also contain magnetic particles in them, so let the technician know before you go into the MRI.

Getting a tattoo or piercing can be a big step in a person’s life, and it can have a lot of meaning to a person. Getting a tattoo or piercing can also greatly affect a person’s chances at getting a career.

Looking for a job can be difficult it can be even more difficult when a person has some sort of modification in plain view. A company’s first selling point may be the image of one employee. Although, this one employee may speak eloquently, have a great knowledge of the product, be helpful and be very friendly, a potential customer may be set back to see some sort of modification on the company’s employee.

Those who are looking to go into the teaching field need to be careful. In the field of education, teachers and any other people who work in a school are around a younger generation all day. Teachers (as an example) need to appear well educated and clean cut. Teachers in many districts cannot show any tattoos.

This goes for many other professions as well. Placement of tattoos is key. Most careers will allow a person to have them as long as they are able to conceal them. This may mean wearing a long sleeved shirt or completely closed shoes.

“I don’t think that they bother anyone, it is a form of expression. They don’t hurt anyone, and aren’t unprofessional because so many people have piercings and tattoos now. However, they should be appropriate such as no nudity in plain sight,” answer Colleen Dolan, a secondary Education major here at Rowan.

The job may even be as small as a host in a restaurant. Last summer for example, I was a host in McLoone’s at Favorites, in Fords, New Jersey. As I have mentioned before I have my nose pierced and at this point I had only worn a stud. During my interview with the general manager he had questioned me if I was able to take my piercing out. At McLoone’s at Favorites, those who worked for the company were not allowed to have any facial piercings.

Gilbert Handy, who has served in the United States Army, understood when he was not allowed to have any visible piercings or tattoos when he was in service.  Although, his feelings towards tattoos and piercings in the workforce outside of the military differs.

“The civilian workforce, however, has got to lighten up. Maintaining a dress code for appearances that I get; it really isn’t appropriate to allow freedom of dress because, let’s face it, some people will take that to the limits of indecency. But tattoos and piercings are merely decorative and an expression of yourself,” as stated by Handy.

A company’s image is all they have at first glance. The stigma that society once placed on modifications still holds true, even though they are becoming more acceptable in society. There are many people who have tattoos and piercings and are very well educated and very well mannered people.
