Somehow, I convinced my mum to get an NFC implant.
So the backstory is, I got my implants a couple of months now at this point. Only a few select friends know about it, and I wanted them just for ‘me’, and some cool projects I can do. None of my family knew. In fact, they are pretty against body modification and tattoos in general, so I was pretty nervous doing it behind their backs, considering I’m not a very rebellious person. Even with being an adult, I knew I could just not mention anything, but I wanted to tell a family member eventually.
The way I went about it was first making sure my mum was in a good mood, and there was time to sit down and talk. I told her I wanted to show her something important and cool, and not to get upset if she didn’t agree. Watching the Modern Rogue video eased her into the idea, as they included quite a good bit of information, and had the procedure in the end. After, I opened up a link using my NExT on my phone, and ONLY then I told her that I had a chip. I then explained use cases, and possible future use cases, appealing to the fact she constantly forgets passwords and the Apex will (eventually) possibly have a password manager in the future. After prompting her for any questions, and assuring her that no, GPS isn’t a thing with this tech (yet), she wanted to see a few more installation videos. I showed her the x-series, as I’m pretty sure most people aren’t prepped to see a little more invasive procedures with flexes. And now I’ve convinced her to install an NFC lock and implant. ^^
Anyways, I was quite nervous, but hopefully, this might help someone if they’re thinking of easing someone into the topic as well, especially family members. I’m still trying to decide which implant she should go for, we might even go together next time when I’m closer to a piercer.
