I’ve joined the club! Had an xNT put in the usual place on my left hand and the xEM in position “4” i believe it’s called. I went to the southernmost install partner on the map in Washington state, and my experience was great. He used a piercing needle which was about half the diameter of the self install needle, so I have two holes per chip but they should both heal without scarring. All this sitting at home contemplating doing it myself, I’m really glad I went to a pro. Biggest surprise was that I don’t even feel them there; I assumed I’d feel them everytime I made a fist or something. Pic taken about 10 minutes after the procedure.
Patiently waiting for vivokey apex now for the right hand, and I might throw a few bare xLEDs in different places next time for fun.
The title is how my installer suggested I respond to anyone asking about why I’ve done this
