Here's a nape piercing I did at two months old. This gentleman takes such wonderful care of his piercings.
Surface piercings aren't the easiest to heal, but when proper placement and aftercare are achieved you could be one of the lucky individuals that can heal it. Inevitably, 98.9% of surface piercing results in migration or rejection. It's important to do your research and understand the pros and cons of surface piercing, and if you've decided that it's right for you, find a piercer who is knowledgeable and experienced in such work. This could essentially prolong the life of your potential piercing. :)
