I got my first implant back in May of 2010! It was a pet tracking RFID chip that I bought on AliExpress and had to convince a piecer at Hell City Tattoo Festival to implant since I couldn’t find anyone locally to do it. Miraculously everything turned out alright! I’ve never had a moment’s trouble with the implantation.
Here what it looked like the day after being implanted:
And here’s what it looks like a decade later:
The chip, though, is so flaky that it’s pretty much useless. Since I can’t rely on it I don’t want to set anything up to use it as access control because that would be more frustrating than just using a key.
Now that I’ve found Dangerous Things, though, oh-ho Boy! I just ordered a “Lifestyle Bundle” and an extra xG3 so I could get one diametric and one axial. And now there’s a whole approved network of people who will implant them! Things have come a long way!
