I use body adhesive to paste rhinestones on my body to give it a piercing look. Body glue works better than any ordinary glue.

I Love piercing my body and love to wear piercing jewelry. But I fear to be pierced and fear of bearing pain. I never got pierced after I grew up. I learned many things about Body art/ Artificial Tattoo and False Piercings.  Body art is something that makes me feel more beautiful and confident.

I have 1 Nostril piercing and an earlobe. These are the most common and looks ordinary to me. My favorite is Lip Piercings, Snakebite piercing us my favorite one. But it`s really tough for me as my parents are not allowing me for getting such types of piercings and I fear bleeding and pain.

How I get the Idea of Artificial Piercing?

Actually, it`s is not even artificial, it is fake piercing. And the idea comes in my mind when I was in 12th std. One of the girls in my school got 5 ear piercings. whenever she wears rings or pins on all piercings it looks really beautiful and different.

Then I have decided to find another way that is simple and painless. And I come to the Adhesives, I read, researched and experimented, again and again.

At very first I have used all of my crafts glue or paper glues. But none of these worked then I come to know about Skin adhesives.


Failed Successful
Fevi Glue DUO waterproof eyelash adhesive glue
Fevicol Ghost bond platinum (1.3oz) Lace glue
Fevikwik C2P professional makeup, glitter glue
Ordinary paper glue Double-sided waterproof tape

Note- Never use any glue/ adhesive to your skin without reading its precautions and other Instructions.

Which one failed miserably?

Applying all these glues to my skin leads to many problems. I have remembered that when I have tried Fevikwik to my skin, it was really one of my foolish did. But I thank God that I haven’t used that on my face. I have just applied it to my Navel. To give it a navel piercing look I applied some fevikwik and paste some stones and stuck a ring there. And the other moment I have realized that something is not OK there. My skin feels like plastic (lifeless) with a slight burning sensation.

Then I realized the ring got stuck there on my navel and it was not moving at all. It tried water, Soap, oil, Shampoo, Lemon juice…. Many more things but nothing worked. I tried pulling it out but it really hurts and I got rashes there. After all, I go to my mom and showed her what I did. Then she gives me the solution to Remove Fevi Kwik from Skin.

  • Take a bowl or bucket (according to the glue affected area.
  • Pour some cold water.
  • If you are able to dip your glued part then dip it.
  • Or if you are not able to dip it take a piece of cloth or towel.
  • Dip the cloth into the cold water.

What are the uses of Skin glue?

Skin adhesives are useful in many ways. The main use of any skin glue / surgical glue is to glue fix the cuts on the skin. Instead of stitches, some people prefer glue to fix the wound. It is a good alternative to skin Stitches.

But the main drawback of glue is that it takes a little more time to heal and we just have to take proper care of it. It can be washed off or stretch may cause damages. Even after all people prefer these more than any other painful method.

Piercing alternative-

It is really an awesome alternative to piercing as I am using this even now. I mainly use Eyelashes glue to paste stones on my body or face. Navel Piercing, Lower lip piercing, and Medulla piercing are my favorite and I do these with the use of skin glue.

I have heard people use derma bond- surgical glue for body jewelling. This is also a safe and effective way to apply Rhinestones. But after some hours they get panic about derma bond removal.

I don’t use this add this is really strong glue and removing it really takes time and patience. Although it is not that harmful or dangerous. I have heard so many stories regarding dermabond.

One day a boy shared his experience- he said when he goes to the doc after getting hurt and wound. They started applying dermabond glue instead of stitches. And the other moment the boy realized it adhered to his chin. This is not the only case.  A child`s eyes get accidentally glued and after a long time of soaking, it opened.

How to remove surgical glue from skin? 

I am giving the process to remove dermabond from wound, hairs, or any other part if applied accidentally.

  • Soak the glued area in the triple antibiotic ointment for a few minutes.
  • If unable to soak then cover it completely.
  • The glue should be loose enough to remove
  • If nothing happened, soak that area for few more minutes
  • Rub gently to break the glue
  • repeat these steps.
  • You can use Acetone (dilute as necessary), Petroleum jelly (Vaseline), or Warm soap water for soaking.

How to remove dermabond from hair?

  • Apply tea tree oil, Vegetable oil, Vinegar, or Vaseline to remove dermabond from hair.

The application of these oils and gels may loosen the glue. And can help to remove dermabond from hair.

decorate with skin glue

Don’t do this in a hurry with your hair as it may damage your hair. Apply any of the above options and wait till it gets loosen and removable.

How long does surgical glue stay on?

It may take 5-10 days after the application to come off. This time may vary depending on the application, amount of application, and skin type on which it is applied.
