Post implant feeling

Hi, I just implanted myself an nfc chip between my thumb and index finger. I've watched videos where people said that it was (near) painless, but my implant location feels like a bruise or small traumatism. I'm worried about having gone too deep or too shallow since its the first time I do this. Could you please tell me about your own post-implantation feelings?


  • I had a cylinder magnet implanted in same spot as you. The process itself was actually painless (one sharp pain and some dull pain) and done in about 45 seconds, 5 min prep not included. Implantation method was scalpel, make pocket and jam in the magnet.

    Afterwards it did hurt quite a bit for a few days, took maybe 2 weeks for most pain to go away. Month after i was painless, although my constant playing with magnet caused me a great deal of pain. Exploring my boundaries etc.

    Some trauma is to be expected.
  • Phew, that's a relief.
