[Ed. – Till death (from blood poisoning) do them part.]
There’s a new trend in engagement rings.
Instead of a diamond ring around your finger, a diamond is embedded IN your finger, WCBS reports.
“We notice lately a lot of people coming looking for that,” Sam Abbas, who owns NYC Ink Studio in the West Village, said.
Apparently, some millennials are ditching the usual engagement ring and instead piercing their ring fingers.
“I think it looks nice, but if you really think what it’s doing to the body – and you can have scarring – it’s so many complications that can happen from it,” Cynthia Rivas said.
Abbas said there could be problems if the person doesn’t take care of the piercing, such as cleaning it two to three times a day and making sure the piercing artist has experience.
“You’re dealing with the blood, so you got to be very, very safe,” he said. “What we do, we sterilize everything.”
A piercing artist marks the spot with a pen, cleans with alcohol and iodine, uses a tool to remove a small patch of skin, and then inserts an anchor made of titanium or gold, which holds the gem, Hsu reported.
