Millennials are piercing their ring fingers instead of buying expensive engagement rings.


Piercing ring finger is the latest "millennial" trend.

According to Cosmopolitan: "These finger piercings are a bit like tattoo engagement rings in the way that they last forever, only with these, you still get the diamond. And yes, it looks incredibly painful."


Painful process

The painful procedure takes approximately 10 minutes and piercing costs around 100$. The diamond you choose is a separate cost. Owner of NYC Ink Studio in West Village, Sam Abbas said:

"You're going to feel it. You're getting pierced. It is a little bit painful. But people did it, and I have a lot of people who say, 'Oh nice, it's nothing, I expect more.'"


'They’re different than other piercings'

Billy DeBerry, Florida-based body piercer told People: "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."
