Couples are ditching traditional wedding rings in favour of piercings on their ring fingers in a painful new social media trend.
Brides and grooms from around the world have taken to Instagram to share snaps of studs and rings implanted into their wedding finger.
While some of the jewellery boasted simple diamonds, others featured more intricate rings and bars protruding underneath the skin.
Dermal piercings usually consist of two pieces - a flat plate which sits beneath the skin, and a changeable piece of jewellery which is visible on the surface.
But the piercings don't come without their risks, with dermatologists warning that if the anchor is not place deep enough the piercing will start moving, but if it is placed too deep the skin will begin to grow over the piercing.
