The TikToker opted for a thin gold bracelet with her initials on it and a cute little love heart

The welded bracelet trend will give you the ‘thrill’ of a tattoo or piercing ‘without the pain’.

While the ‘permanent jewellery’ has been around since 2021, produced by London-based Astrid and Miyu, other brands have since followed suit, and fans are raving about them once again.

‘Zapping’ is another name for applying permanent jewelry. And the method of having a bracelet or anklet permanently welded around your wrist or ankle is compared to having a tattoo.

The trend is breaking out once again, after TikTok user @Lucyisdewy posted a video of herself receiving a gold chain.

She documented the process on the social media site, showing her followers how easy it is to make one.

The end product. TikTok user @Lucyisdewy posted a video of herself receiving a gold chain as she captioned the post: “In love with the permanent pieces (sic) now.”

The post has garnered more than 730,000 likes as viewers have said they will get one themselves as they find it “very cute and dainty”.

Captioning her video, she wrote: “In love with the permanent (sic) pieces now.”

To make sure the part is secure, specialists will use a stylus with a needle on the end.

This uses electricity to melt a small ring or clasp, so that the silver or gold cannot be opened or removed.

Showcasing the process from start to finish, the TikToker showed off a thin gold bracelet with the initials L and K and a love heart in the middle.

The specialists then clamp the ends of the bracelet, while rubbing some metal together to weld the parts together.

They then place a small cover on the area being applied, to protect the skin, while using a small flame to melt the pieces.

Then they buff the area that’s been bonded so it’s nice and smooth.

Still, experts say the process is over in seconds. And the entire appointment shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes total.

And another social media user was eager to get one as soon as possible. They wrote: ‘We need to get matching ones when we’re older.’

And a second urged his friend to get a matching one, writing: “Let’s do this.”

A third said they feel these bracelets come with more commitment than a tattoo, as they said: ‘Why does this seem more permanent to me than a tattoo?’

However, some TikTok users have seen that having one permanently on the body has a downside.

Mentioning one of the potential issues, one user said: ‘Airport security?’

And another put: ‘All fun in the games until there is an event without jewelry’.

One person also questioned: ‘What if you have to do an x-ray?’

While a third jokingly wrote: ‘What if your hand gets bigger?’
