We’ve seen holographic hair color, eyeball tattooing, and nose hair extensions emerge as beauty trends for 2018. That’s why its no surprise that we recently discovered finger piercing. The social media phenomenon was recently featured in the Daily Mail. According to the report, couples are allegedly piercing their fingers in lieu of traditional wedding bands.
Also known as dermal piercing, the procedure requires two pieces of hardware: a flat piece is anchored beneath the skin while an interchangeable jewel is placed on the skin’s surface. Because the hands are in constant movement, the healing period is a minimum of twelve weeks and possible complications include infection, migration, rejection, and skin growing over the piercing.
