I’ve written a DIY implanatation guide, which I will share here; DIY Implantation Guide.pdf

One should also note that this CAN be done solo, but it is just that much more difficult.
You can see a solo implant here:
Thanks so much for the info, I have wanted to do this for years, did not know others were also doing so. Was getting ready to try doing it myself. Thanks for the tips!
I have lurked on many boards about this subject, I am about to take the plunge and get an implant.
I have only one reservation : how delicate are these implants once in the hand?
I ask because I work construction, I imagine the placement of the implant would keep it safe (along the web between index finger and thumb) unless you did something bad enough to break bones in the hand.
Otherwise looking forward to my purchase from dangerousthings,com.
Even though we spoke on the phone about it, I’ll respond here as well for others to read later. The implants are encased in glass, which means it is possible they could be broken. Over the last 8 years I’ve lived with my two implants, I’ve banged up my hands pretty good and so far both implants are doing alright. A few weeks ago I even brought a hammer down right overtop the 3x13mm in my left hand. It hurt, but the glass tag did fine.
If breakage does occur, you will have to get a doctor to cut you open with a scalpel and remove the broken bits. The good news is a break is likely to mean a simple fracture of the glass casing and not an outright shattering, which makes removal of a broken tag much easier.
The good news is, to date I have never heard of anyone having any issues with breakage… even people that put these tags in odd locations in their body. I always suggest the area between the thumb and index finger, as indicated in the guide. This should provide the most amount of protection + the highest degree of manipulability (ability to easily position and orient the tag in 3D space).
