Lil Uzi Vert embedded a $24 million diamond into his forehead so he wouldn't lose it

https://www.mic.com/p/lil-uzi-vert-embedded-a-24-million-diamond-into-his-forehead-so-he-wouldnt-lose-it-60505505

When you talk about the worldís most expensive faces, that could mean a variety of things. Maybe itís whoever has the most surgical touch-ups, whose image generates the most sheer value for the entertainment industry, or which cartoon company mascot brings in the most dough. After surgically implanting a big old pink diamond into his forehead, Lil Uzi Vert is now in the running by default.

Uzi had been teasing the embed for a little while, but Page Six points out that he appears to have gone through with the thing. Last week, the rapper offered some details on his latest exorbitant rock ó a nearly 11 carat Elliot Eliantte pink diamond, clocking at $2 million per carat. An artist with streams in the billions is obviously doing well for himself, but even Uzi needed to space out the payments since 2017.

Photos and videos of Uziís new forehead made their way to Instagram on Tuesday night, with CEO Slow and Eliantte sharing videos of the new stone. Uzi confirmed it for himself on Wednesday, and well, you can check it out for yourself down below:

As Page Six points out, he explained his rationale for going the forehead route rather than, say, a diamond ring, to a fan on Instagram. ďIf I lose the ring yeah U will make fun of me more than putting it in my forehead ha ha jokes on you ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haÖ And yes I do have insurance,Ē Uzi said. Ominous!

20. I'm not her, but if I was...

I would get two of my friends together, have one of them shave me bald while the other shot video, then monetize the video on YouTube and use the proceeds to buy a case of hair spray.

I am big on off-label usage of various products, but using spray adhesive on my hair is not one of the things I would try.

30. Nobody can see it if it's in a safety deposit box.

The point of having such a thing is to make sure people know you have it.

13. I did some research. Here's how they did it.

The diamond is in a setting with two pieces of metal coming out the back. Each piece of metal has a hole in it. They made two small incisions in his forehead, one above the other, then used a needle to connect the two incisions followed by a piece of teflon rod. Once that was in, they threaded the ends of the rod through the holes in the setting.

His major problem is that the weight of this rock could cause his body to reject the piercing, which means it'll push the rod right through his skin.

I have a lot of piercings and that one's way too bizarre for me.

Somehow, I find that a little disappointing.

If you're going to go celebrity/bizzaro, go all the way.

31. So it's just sewn into his skin and not embedded in his skull?

He's a mugging target for sure, then.

28. Yep, first barrier (morals) crossed.

Second barrier (escape route) is a little dicier, and itís why most people who are thinking of committing crimes think twice and donít.
