The flat ring band was cut from thick 16 gauge aluminum, stamped one letter at a time with fuck off, and hammered diagonally over a steel mandrel to produce the wrap ring. A black patina creates extra boldness in the fuck off, while a brushed finish provides a luminous glow as a perfect background.

I highly recommend ordering your bypass ring in your size, by entering your ring size or finger circumference in the check out notes, Paypal notes, or by sending me a contact message. The ring measures approximately 5 mm wide and 1 mm thick.
