Diamonds implanted right into skin in new engagement ring trend

March 14th, 2018

Some couples are doing away with traditional engagement rings in favour of having a single piece of diamond implanted directly on the skin of their ring finger. The diamond is implanted into the skin through dermal piercing, which is a single-point surface piercing—unlike the usual piercings that go in one side of your flesh and out the other.

Our engagement dermals we got friday. It was a little painful and bloody but definitely worth it and an awesome idea by my fiancée! We chose red and green for Harley and Joker but I might switch to purple after it heals. #2017 #engagement #engaged #fiance #alternative #girlswithtattoos #girlswithpiercings #guyswithpiercings #style #guyswithtattoos #guyswithgauges #metal #creaturesofthenight #badass #crazy #lasvegas #dreaming #metalhead #alternative #love #inlove #weirdo #dermal #piercing #implants #couples #bodymods #rockerchick #cute #pain #beautiful

“To place a dermal anchor, a piercer uses a dermal punch to remove a small circle of flesh. S/he then uses dermal forceps to insert a small dermal anchor into the resulting hole,” a website that specializes in piercings, tattoos, and other forms of body art describes the dermal piercing process.

While the idea of engagement dermal piercings is relatively new, implanting diamonds into skin isn’t. Many people opt to have studs placed on their face, below the throat, or their nape, among other body parts.

The process is painful and risky; if not implanted correctly, dermal piercings can be rejected by the body. It could also migrate or move from its original location as cells grow around the invasive anchor, leaving a scar behind. Improper care while the piercing is still healing could lead to infection, hyper-granulation or red bumps, and scarring around the piercing.
