Hey there, I’ve been looking into biohacking for a while and it seems really cool and I love the idea of it
I don’t have much experience with piercings and implants other than my ears
I’ve looked around and so far I’m really interested in getting a Blue xSIID I read a bit about 2k User memory but only 1K being writable I believe due to how it’s formatted
I’m very new to NFC I’ve had a few NFC rings and stuff and messed with circle NTAG chips but that’s really it is not super-advanced with NFC yet. I mainly want to get it for looks and maybe trying to use it to log in to my devices and such and maybe some small coding projects
overall I’m pretty nervous about getting an xSIID because I would have to self install and the only real help I would have is my girlfriend watching over me because I’m in the UK there doesn’t seem to be many piercers around during covid-19 and all
I’m just wondering if there is anything else I should know or be worried about and is it that hard of a procedure other than getting through the pain and is there much risk of messing it up badly
I’ve looked a lot around about looking at the V shape between my index and thumb and using a halfway mark to install it in the chunk of flesh there and pulling the skin up a bit to break it away from the deeper skin layers
I looked into a lot of this months ago then fell off it for a while out of thinking I was just being crazy or something and I came across dangerousthings again and now I’m pretty sure I want to get it over and done with and start playing with it
Whereabouts in the UK are you?, there are quite a few members on this forum from the UK and may be able to point you to an installer or two.
I can think of at least 4 that may be up for helping you also, but I will let them volunteer themselves.
( Doctor, Piercer, Ex-Ambo, Enthusiast )
If you “HAVE TO” install it yourself, Contact us first, we will provide you with as much information as possible to reduce your risk.
But at least try and find an installer first.
wow thanks thats alot of info thanks alot "^^
Sorry if my posts are a bit messy I’m not very good at formatting forum posts
I live in the Highlands in Scotland in a relatively small area not many pierces about and the general feel of the area is pretty old and dated not sure even if any of the pierces where open i doubt they would even accept doing it
hell i couldn’t even find a piercer where i live to get my ears done i had to get it done in a barber shop
i also did see KSEC but they seem to be alot more expensive than if i got it from dangerousthings (USD to GBP it was about £116.43 and on KSEC it was about £160) i would rather save some money and wait longer for shipping
sorry trying to wrap my head around some of this haha
Let me tell you, self install is rough.
My wife said she would help me, but is soon as it got real she ran for the hills. [Now I torment her by telling her the stories of how it will goes in]
A lot of people here are very pro installer, for very good reason, you are forcing trauma on yourself. Your body really doesn’t like getting stuff put into it.Your brain when it sees what you’re trying to do to it will definitely fight you.
That said, I have six installs so far and I did them all myself - And believe me it was a learning process as I went along. Number one went in no problem two Went in after some nervous poking lots of blood, gore, and whimpering.
And let me tell you it went downhill from there. Number three was a son of a gun to put in I had an XG3 that I partially got into my fingertip but couldn’t get it deep enough and it just ripped the skin. So I moved it [much to the chagrin of everybody in this forum]
Number five was a blue siid [The one you were looking at] into position zero but after my shallow one I push this sucker a little too deep. I’m very disappointed in this one I bought it mainly for the lighting, but the light is directional and I can sometimes see it if it’s pitch black and my phone screen is dim and the moon and Jupiter are aligned.
Number six was a next chip it went in perfectly.
So in closing as long as you keep things clean and take care and time to heal and just watch as many videos for installs as you can you should get along just fine - but I don’t recommend it
Thank you all for your input
I’m sorry if i kinda ignored the post for a bit i got a bit… scared away…I’m very shy at times and i got a bit overwhelmed
i got my chip and installed it and I’ve been able to read the chip through the bandage perfectly fine with my phone i changed the bandage after a few hours after and added some iodine and it seems to already be healing up okay just a small slightly curved slit
i just wanna say thank you all for your help and you all definitely said the best way to do things and i would recommend people do indeed go to professionals
but i was really confident and thought long and hard and i went for it
