Instead of Engagement Rings, Women Are Now Getting Diamonds Implanted in Their Skin
Why wear a beautiful, classy engagement ring when you could just disfigure yourself by jamming the diamond into a bloody hole in your hand?
Apparently, the hot new trend for women is to skip wearing an engagement ring . . . and instead, they’re having the diamond implanted directly into the skin on their ring finger.
The diamond is held in place with something called a “dermal anchor,” which is a little hook that’s implanted underneath the skin. And it hurts like hell to have one put in.
There are also some potential health risks . . . your cells can reject the anchor and it can lead to permanent scarring or tissue damage.
But hey, anything to look good. Well . . . not good, per se. But, um, anything to look edgy, I guess?

He offered one group a $30 bonus, compliments and a pizza while the other group was offered nothing. The group that received the bonus and pizza increased their productivity by 6.7% on the first day after receiving their offer.
