An engagement ring isn't just an accessory - it's a symbol of your love and upcoming nuptials.

But not everyone wants to wear a ring on their finger.

So what are the alternative options?

For a long time people have been getting engagement tattoos.

But now the hot new trend is getting a piercing.

Yep, couples are opting to get the unusual - and rather painful - dermal piercing.

A dermal piercing is typically made up of two pieces of jewellery consisting of a flat piece of metal that sits beneath the skin’s surface and a visible stud that can be changed just like any other body piercing.

Like most piercings, they can be customised according to your taste and personality.

Anyone else cringing at the thought of the pain?
