Worried xEM installed too deep?
I performed a self-install of a Dangerous Things xEM implant on Monday. While I am no professional, I do have quite a bit of experience with piercing. The install itself went smoothly, but now that the swelling has gone down I am worried it might be too deep. I had used a clamp to tent the skin to try to make sure it settled in the fascia, but I can't see it in my hand at all, nor does it feel like it is directly under the dermis. From what I've seen of other installs, you should generally be able to manipulate it into being visible. Could it still be slightly swollen(it doesn't look so compared to my other hand), or is it almost definitely in muscle tissue? There's no pain or movement issues, even when doing strenuous things with it. I haven't gotten to test it yet(still need a 12v power supply/battery), but I know that if it is too deep, it could affect read capabilities.
