People are getting diamond piercings on their fingers instead of engagement rings
Would you be interested in getting a piercing instead of a ring on your wedding day?
Because dermal piercings are now seen as a sign of commitment.
Piercing lovers around the world are expressing their love and commitment by getting diamond piercings into their ring finger in place of an engagement ring.
And of course, many have been documenting the new trend on Instagram.
The dermal piercing makes it look like the diamond is sitting on top the skin. When the base anchor is pierced through, the decorative stud is then placed on it.
“Micro dermal anchors are safe and the body will hold them for years, as long as they’re in ideal places and if implant-grade titanium is used,” professional body piercer Billy DeBerry told PeopleStyle.
He said that he has been doing dermal piercings on clients for more than ten years now, however, he has “only noticed them become popular since social media exposure.
“They’re different than other piercings since it’s considered ‘surface work.’ It really lets a person get away from traditional piercings like the ear or nose.
“With the base being anchored into place under the surface of the skin, the tops are interchangeable with a huge variety of colors, shapes and designs," Billy told the website.
And because it's a piercing, and ensuring you carefully look after them, there's no risk the permanent damage. “No stitches or doctor is needed for removal. It takes seconds to remove them."
