Wedding rings are a timeless symbol of marriage. A display to yourself and others that you are committed to another person. Some marriers opt for an even more permanent symbol of commitment with a tattoo in the place of a wedding ring or a matching couple tattoo.

Another take on the traditional wedding ring that is becoming increasingly popular is a wedding ring piercing. Yes, you read that correctly, a piercing!

Dermal piercings have been done for years on all parts of the body such as the face, back, collar bones, hips and more. They are single entry piercings that lie flat on the body unlike other piercings, such as the nose or ears, which go in one end and come out on the other side.

A dermal piercing, no matter where it is placed on the body, involves inserting a dermal anchor under the skin. This is done by punching a hole in the flesh and removing a small piece of skin which allows the anchor to be slid under the skin, creating the base for the jewelry to screw into.

Opting for a wedding ring piercing is not considered a smart decision by many in the piercing industry.Β Even the piercers who are performing these piercings and sharing them to social media are advising against them, sharing the dangers that come with this procedure.

A wedding ring piercing may be the trend for you if you are not a traditional jewelry wearer or want to sport a some bling to the “wedding ring finger” without a wedding ring. Dermal piercings on the finger are simple yet stand out in a gorgeous, unique way.

Dermal piercings can be easily removed, however they commonly leave a scar behind. Be advised that there is danger associated with the jewelry catching on anything from a sweater to a blanket or being knocked against a hard surface, all of which could lead to tearing.
