I showed my (professional) installer today and they say its rejecting and that there wasnt enough tissue to install it any deeper.
Im still holding onto hope that it can be recovered, but thats my bias, because I dont think I’ve got it in me to try a finger install again. Super painful, you know.
I trust that the professional knows best, I guess im just looking to see some thoughts and opinions. I don’t want to blame the installer, but thats kind of the default assumption, and I’m looking for anything to check my sanity.
Yeah this has to come out and liberal amounts of topical antiseptic needs to be applied with a bandage for at least a week.
The installer probably made a bad call in terms of thinking a 13mm long implant would fit there. They should have evaluated the fingertip and determined it would be risky to attempt it… but just like in medicine and law, body mod is more of a practice than a science.
Yeah it came out with ease after a little push. Virtually no blood or puss was present, and the cavity seemed to be about as healthy as you could imagine. Its better safe than sorry, as risk of infection isn’t worth gambling a finger over.
Whats next, as far as returning/replacing, to prepare for next install?
In the nicest way possible, this is the “find out” portion of the age old adage “fuck around find out”. Ballsy to attempt a fingertip install on small fingers with a big implant (I did the exact same thing with the exact same outcome)
Yeah if it’s just loose in a container it’s possible to be jostled hard enough to knock a cap off. This is true if any x-series, however the xG3 are not only magnetic, they are also the largest mass (heaviest) x-series… a lot of momentum compared to much lighter x-series glass encapsulated products.
