Here’s an early surface piercing on the hip/waist. Note, for all surface piercings I only pierce with PTFE plastic, so to allow room for swelling due to the bar being flexible, more comfortable and in general gives it a better chance of healing. One it’s healed, return to trim the plastic down and in some cases (areas of the body) you can change to a metal bar. However it has to be said, surface piercings in general do have a high rejection rate and can naturally migrate. Depends on the body part, depends on the individual, depends on if you look after it.
