Implanting xSIID in inner wrist?

Hi everyone, noob here.

Soon I’ll be implanting an xSIID that I plan to use for iPhone shortcuts and contact cards.

As I’m doing more research, Ive began to think that a good option would be my inner right wrist. Im not planning on using my xSIID to open locks, and I dont like the idea of having the implant on the outside of my hand, I prefer the more subtle inner wrist if im just going to be tapping iphones to it.

Im noticing there isnt a lot of info on inner wrist implants.

Can anyone point me to any resources that can show me how to do this safely? Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

A concern I have is the amount of blood flow that flows in the inner wrist.

If you look at the first picture under the “Forearm” section, is that what you’re thinking?

Yes has anyone self installed this? Or have a video I can look at?

So far I can find two people who have done installs in that location, but it looks like neither of them have been active on the forum in a while

But, just in case
Any input?

@Raevumn’s thread, it might be helpful:


I have xG3 in the inner wrist about 2 in back from the joint. They both sit just behind the watch band. I had no issues with them bothering or moving :+1:

Ho, and both self install :sweat_smile:

I’ve been considering another xg3 just for that. Haven’t pinned out where though. Forearm was a decent option I never considered.

A very early one of the first magnet. I’ll take an updated on with stuff on both :+1:


I have a xg3 here

Sadly the camera moved during the install so i dont have a vid of it.

Dont you have the option to get a piercer to do the job?

If you want to do it safely-ish you will need to get training on sterile procedures and get used to working with needles


Here are both in use :+1:

Thats cool lol

Was it painful to inject in that area? I feel like it would have been very bloody. Also did you or the piercer do the simple pinch and inject method?

not bloody, the second one went a bit too deep on teh end, there isnt many nerve ending there, and the skin in pretty thin. Make sure to tent well :+1:

For good measure :grin:


Pineapple used a needle to put a flex in my inner wrist. I shoot guns and lift weights a lot. No issues. It should be a piece of cake with an xSIID.
