There Is A New Engagement Ring Piercing Trend And It's... Questionable

This is certainly not a trend that we expected to see.... but people are apparently piercing their fingers with studs instead of getting engagement rings. Seems like a lot to go through when you could just get a ring, right?

NY Post reports:

"The trend, which has reportedly been growing in popularity with millennials in recent months, involves getting a single diamond implanted into the skin of the ring finger.

The “ring” is placed with a dermal anchor. Unlike traditional piercings that go in one side and exit the other, to place a dermal stud, piercers must first remove a circle of skin with a dermal punch before using small forceps to insert a “dermal anchor into the resulting hole.” The bling is then attached to the anchor."
