American rapper Lil Uzi Vert has just had his famous $24 million (£17.4 million) pink diamond implanted back into his forehead. He had removed it last month, but now it's back with a brand new tattoo on his tongue to go with it.
The rapper was reportedly sporting it at Rolling Loud Miami over the weekend.
When he first had it done in February, people thought the musician was joking, and his fans were left shocked and amazed that he'd actually gone through with it.
The precious stone is said to be worth more than his houses and cars at $24 million, and LUV has been making payments towards the stone since he first laid eyes on it in 2017.
The unique piece of bling was fitted by New York jewellers Eliantte & Co, which specialises in custom pieces for celebrities. The jewellers were behind Young Thug's facial diamond in 2016, but a forehead implantation was a first for them.
Since having the unique piercing, fans have wondered how safe it is to have such a large and complex piercing so near the brain. But speaking to Rolling Stone earlier this year, Simon Bebaev, a spokesperson for Eliantte & Co said that actually, "it's as safe as any other piercing."
"As long as you maintain it well and have good upkeep, it's perfectly fine," he said.
"We made sure that prior to getting anything done that Uzi brought someone in to consult on everything. We didn't just do this randomly."
Health risks aside, if you're carrying a $24 million rock around on your face, you want to know it's not going anywhere, so how does that work?
"In the body modification world, they usually do everything in stainless steel, or surgical-grade steel. But in our case we did everything with precious metals," explained Bebaev.
"We engineered a specific mounting that clips and locks in place. There's a whole mechanism involved, it's not a standard piercing. A specific piece and part were both engineered with millimeter precision to get this put on him."
So it's pretty safe there.
With such a statement piece of jewellery right there on his forehead, fans are left wondering what the Philadelphia rapper is worth. But the result may surprise you.
It's estimated that Lil Uzi Vert is worth $16 million (£11.5 million) in 2021, so the pink diamond on his face is literally worth more than him and all of his assets. Fair enough.
