The Neck piercing is a type of surface piercing placed in the tissue that resides within the space of the collar bones. Also known as a ‘Madison’ piercing, this type of body piercing can only be performed if there is enough loose tissue in the area to accommodate the piercing.
For this type of piercing a standard straight 14g needle is used, with either a straight or curved barbell made of ptfe material or surgical stainless steel inserted for initial jewelry. Once healed (taking about 8 weeks time), curved or straight barbells of varying materials can be worn. Drawbacks of this body piercing are as with all surface piercings and their tendencies to catch on clothing and migrate or reject more often than standard body piercings.
