Trends on Instagram are not slowing down. Now, many users are sharing photos of a new accessorizing trend that looks painful: dermal piercings on fingers (also called finger dermal) in lieu of engagement rings.
It seems that traditional jewelry are going out of style for some people. With finger dermal, it looks like the diamond or crystal is floating on top of the skin after the base is secured and the decorative stone is placed on it.
People are piercing diamonds and other precious stones into their ring finger in place of traditional engagement rings and wedding bands.
Even those not engaged or married are having finger dermal piercings done on their other fingers, too. As long as done properly, these dermal piercings on fingers should be safe. Professional body piercer Billy DeBerry of Fallen Sparrow Tattoo in Kissimmee, Florida, explained to PeopleStyle:
“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…
“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.”
Dermal piercings on the ring finger is not new, but it has recently become famous because of media exposure.
It is also reportedly not as painful as it looks and can be done in a matter of minutes. DeBerry was quoted as saying:
“If it will hurt always depends on the individual. Some people do a lot better than others. But [I think] walking them through the process, and having it being quick, it never gets to the point where someone can’t handle it.”
Doctors still advise people to be careful when getting these finger dermal piercings.
Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, told Allure:
“My concern with a dermal piercing in the finger is the location. There is constant movement in the fingers, which could displace the piercing. Think about how many times we accidentally bang our hands against the side of the table or doorframe.”
Those who want to get finger dermal piercings should also consider the metal used for the anchor.
Some metals, for example nickel, may cause allergic reactions.
