How do you get dermal anchors to unscrew, I can’t get either of mine out. Could that mean something is wrong?

Lots of time this is a result of your bodies secretions getting into the threading and “cementing” it. If this is the case a warm water soak can often break it down enough so that it can be removed. If this doesn’t work, it could be cross threaded or just really tight. In either case I recommend seeing a piercer experienced in microdermals. If you are too rough with it you can easily break through the tissue anchoring it in place and/or enlarge the pocket it rest in (which could lead to abscessing).

  2. You turn it to the RIGHT to UNSCREW it. Just like all other body piercings. :D

  3. Correction turning right will tighten, turning left will loosen … “Righty tighty, lefty loosey”
