I had my divers removed and replaced them with archors… Well the piercer was changing it the archor droped and we couldnt find it in my hand… my question is should I worry about infection or it bothering me or go to the er and have it removed?

I had a client come in who had lost the foot of her jewelry into her sternum and never found it again.
Luckily it was an anchor she got from my studio and at least it was of implant grade, anodized titanium from a reputable company like Anatometal. I could at least assure it was a biocompatible piece.
She is looking into x-rays to see where it ended up, but it should probably be alright. A doctor could remove it no problem.

That being said, if you don’t know exactly what the metal lost in your hand is made of, it could cause you problems down the road as it starts to break down.

  1. I ALMOST lost my nape md, the anchor sunk and the skin was healing over. After going to hosipital and no luck, I used a piercing needle and pliers, to open up the hole and pull the anchor back up, replaced the head and now, it’s healed well.
