Nape piercing is a very attractive surface piercing located on the back of the neck. It is one of the most popular surface piercings in the world. A typical option for those who want to have a nape piercing is to get one piercing that is relatively long and covers a large surface on the back of the neck. However, there are also many people who choose to get more than one nape piercing so you can have a pair or a group of nape piercings on the back of the neck. Typical jewelry piece for a nape piercing is a surface bar.

A nape piercing may look extreme but it is actually not a particularly complex piercing. However, there are some things to keep in mind. Since neck is such a sensitive area, it is important for a nape piercing to be done professionally and at a reliable piercing studio. This is the only way to avoid issues such as infection, migration and rejection. Keep in mind that as surface piercing, a nape piercing has a high risk of rejection and other problems. This is why it is so important to do everything you can to make it last longer. However, keep in mind that a nape piercing, just like many other surface piercings, is not a permanent piercing so be ready to retire it after a while.
