A Scalpel Surface Piercing is a large surface piercing done using a scalpel.

In most ways, this is simply a piercing performed with a scalpel rather than a needle, resulting in a larger, yet "cleaner" hole. Even though the pierced hole is quite large, standard gauge jewelry is used. This allows the skin to heal raised around the piercing, but without putting undue pressure on the skin causing migration. It is very important that jewelry not be changed during the healing period. Other than that point, the piercing is healed using the advice above.
