Tattoos and piercings are on the rise for 2011 especially with teens. The hottest piercings are the belly, hip, lip, tongue, Nape, Third eye, bridge of nose, process called outplant and pocketing, and even a Rook piercing is becoming more popular. But what about finger piercing?
That’s right this crazy trend can be around your finger with the piercing through the bottom, on the finger having the gems laying behind the knuckle, or having the diamond stand out by itself with no barbells or anything showing, which is a micro dermal. This look has gotten so crazy that many piercing fans are even going as far as a Finger Ring Engagement Piercing or promise rings for their loved one.
Just recently within in the past month I have seen more fingers and lips pierced more than ever. I thought maybe there was a special day or holiday for this, because too many in one day. Both the lip and finger have some serious risks to consider.
The finger or hand is considered a surface piercing. Think about it. Your hand is not covered or being protected at all times and the germs are everywhere, which can cause some serious infections. We work with our fingers all day, the piercing can get caught on stuff and rip the stone right out. Most surface piercings I have encountered with many usually are rejected, and will not last long. Maybe a week or two if your lucky enough.
The lip can cause damage to your gums, cause serious scars beneath the lips skin, bacterial infections in your mouth, and if the jewelry becomes too lose in your mouth you can end up swallowing it and perhaps choking if not aware. Is this what you want to take a chance with? Instead opt for an alternative. If you must have that look for a certain occasion, wear the fake versions. Here are a few places to check out.

Years ago many of my friends would use an earring wire and place a tiny craft bead for decoration. It’s all up to you, but whatever you do be careful.
