So you may remember that a few days ago I posted a very radical transdermal strip removal that involved a very large amount of tissue being removed, with the motivating factor being dealing with large bald spots that had formed around the transdermals. Anyway, it created quite the furor in the entry, with many people feeling that too much tissue had been removed. Now, personally, I actually didn’t think it was all that bad a method, but in fairness I think it’s also important to post what more conservative practitioners felt a safer removal would be.
Steve Truitt just took out J5th‘s top transdermal (five years old) and he wanted me to show that the removals can be done far less invasively… What’s funny is when he took it out, it was all bent! I guess he took a blow to the head some time ago and didn’t even know it had damaged the transdermal! Apparently he has a hard head.
In terms of relating this to the larger removal posted earlier, this method would not address the baldspots of course and I believe has slightly more potential for scarring (assuming good healing in both cases), but it does involve hugely less risk to the client and practitioner and there’s a lot to be said for not risking seriously injuring your friends. The one above is fresh, and a smaller transdermal design, so let me also share the removal that Steve did on _Stigmata_, since I have a healed shot of that:
Anyway, bring on the yelling about it all. :-)
