Society has advanced to the stage where the human skin has become a sketchpad. Different patterns are stringed together to form a design on the flesh of a living being. Before I proceed, let me ask you a few questions.
Do you know what diamond piercing is? Have you ever heard of it?.

Hmm….Gone are those days when fiancées, brides, moms (female folks) wear wedding bands -I’m not kidding you-. What we have as a replacement for engagement rings or wedding rings (as the case may be) is Diamond Piercing. Now, what exactly is this art we’re talking about?.
It is a process whereby parts of the skin on the ring finger is peeled off by a well skilled tattooer with his tools and a glittering expensive diamond is placed permanently on the skin.This skin art has generated a lot of controversy due to its disregard for the old tradition of wearing a proper ring 💍 and the reality of a gem being stuck on your finger.
As it is said that different strokes for different folks. While some are not so happy with this skin art some female folks are very excited and cool with it. It has become the order of the day amongst females abroad, meanwhile it’s just gaining popularity ground in Nigeria.
