There’s a crazy trend going on recently and it’s non other than finger piercing. It’s supposedly a replacement for traditional wedding rings. Wedding rings were exchanged when tying the knot which many have imparted since generations before. It is a representation of union (and also to ward off suitors).
However, some people can be clumsy and forgetful which ended up with a misplaced wedding ring, so there are a handful of people who opt for finger piercing aka dermal piercing.
Pretty extreme, ain’t it?
Finger piercing looks exactly like you’re wearing a diamond but without the band. People who did it claimed that this is to show their commitment to their loved ones by having a ring permanently attached to their skin.
It is true that the diamond can last forever as it is pierced to your skin. But, many professionals are against this trend as it is harmful when you got your finger pierced. One doctor made it clear that this trend is dangerous as there are nerves and arteries which will be a huge problem if we accidentally pierced through them. The thoughts of the pain we have to go though to get our fingers pierced is good enough to keep us away from this very idea.
Our hands and fingers are one of the most active body parts that we have. We use our hands for everything from eating to showering and working which makes it harder for our fingers to heal. It will take a longer time than normal piercing.
