Acrylic is the most popular form of plastic known in the body piercing scene, due to its low cost, versatility, and being lightweight. Acrylic body jewelry also benefits from having many color traits, such as vibrant or translucent in both Ultra violet reactive and glow in the dark. From belly rings to plugs, we offer countless varieties of acrylic items for you to choose from. Please be aware that while acrylic body jewelries are safe to use generally, it should not be used in fresh piercings and should only be worn short-term in a well-healed piercing. Acrylic in all forms should not be autoclaved for sterilization.
Silicone is widely used in body piercing scenes today. All silicones that we carry are implant grade, bio-compatible, and ultra light weight, providing the maximum comfort when worn, as well as the guaranteed safety in healed piercings. Silicone is a great choice for people who are sensitive to metals in any way. While silicone is benefitting in many aspects of piercings, it is not meant to be used in fresh piercings or while stretching, as the material can cling to skin, causing an irritation. Please be aware of anyone claiming any plastic (silicone, rubber, or acrylic) is safe to use in fresh piercing or while stretching. While they are very comfortable and safe to use in fully healed piercings, there are no silicone & acrylic suitable for any fresh piercings.
Bio-Flex & PTFE
Bio-Flex & PTFE (aka teflon) are both bio-compatible and hypo-allergenic, mainly benefitting from their property of being flexible and safe. If you are looking for comfort and safety to use for piercings, our line-up of Bio-Flex & PTFE are great option to those with a severe sensitivity to all metal jewelry. Better yet, Bio-Flex & PTFE are proven to be successful for dermal piercings and implants with lower rejection rates.
Borosilicate glass, generally known as pyrex glass, is one of the best material available for body piercing jewelry. Glasses used to create our body jewelry are tempered, medical grade, non-porous, and lead & nickel free: They make a great alternative to steel or titanium with simply jaw dropping designs and colors that will amaze you. Glass jewelries can be sterilized through autoclave machine and are generally safe for all piercing stage. A bit of a trade off may be that glass jewelries are not as strong as metal jewelries and do possess a possibility of breaking, even though they have been annealed to be extremely sturdy and durable.
