Brace yourself for a divisive trend, friends. People is reporting that instead of buying expensive engagement rings that can be lost down the sink drain, young people are having diamonds literally embedded in their skin instead. This is real commitment.

This is, of course, being promoted as a “millennial” trend, because everything weird in this world is the fault of someone under 35.

Millennials replacing engagement rings with diamonds embedded in their fingers

That picture is a lot. I’m kind of stuck between, “It’s their finger and their marriage, do whatever,” and “NO WAY!!”

A Florida-based body piercer named Billy DeBerry told People that she’s been giving this dermal piercings on their ring finger for about ten years, but they’ve become much more popular lately, probably because folks are sharing them on social media.

What are your thoughts on diamond dermal piercings instead of a traditional engagement ring? 💎💎💎 📷: @piercingsby_billy

“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,” says DeBerry.

Once you get an anchor, you could also theoretically changed up the stone on top, so if that engagement doesn’t work out, plug something else in. Guess it’s not so permanent, after all?

“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,” DeBerry explains. “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.”

I guess you know if it’s right for you when you see it—just like when falling in love.

People discovering the trend are truly shocked anyone has ever done this?
