how can I pierce my own collarbone area.?
what should I use? I know most people will say to get it professionally done, but I want to try and do it myself.
i don't want to put in screws my piercing will be the bar ones.
other than infections anything I need to look out for?
only the skin area on top of my breast below the bone...
not the actual bone. its almost like when you get a hip piercing but I want it in that area where I explained

Surface piercings are incredibly difficult to heal. I have a friend who had clavicle piercings for almost a year, and they never completely healed. It wasn't worth the trouble to try to keep them, so she took them out. The scar tissue she's left with is just now beginning to fade, a couple years after removing them. Aside from refusing to heal, there's also the possibility that they will reject and turn into a nasty infection. I really wouldn't recommend trying that on your own unless you have an extended knowledge about piercings, and have experience actually piercing. Sterility is a bigger issue when it comes to self-piercing as well.
I know a couple other people who have clavicle dermal anchors, and they have the same LOOK as surface clavicles, especially if you get two on each side. But the upside is that they're much easier to heal and take care of, if you're mindful of them at all times and don't have complications [say you snag one on something, etc]. More permanent, if that's what you're looking for. If you don't mind getting a piercing, only to have to take it out in a couple months time, by all means go for the surface piercings.
