When it comes to stretched ear jewellery, steel flesh tunnels are a classic piece of kit. Whether your ears are five millimetres or fifty, surgical steel flesh tunnels are a great choice. Surgical steel is an excellent metal for flesh tunnels because it is very lightweight, easy to keep clean and comfortable to wear. This is especially important at large gauges and will keep your stretched ears feeling their best. Here at Body Jewellery Shop we have a huge range of steel flesh tunnels, but you can see some of our best-selling steel flesh tunnels below.

Plain Steel Flesh Tunnels

Simple and stylish, these plain steel flesh tunnels are a must-have for anyone with stretched ears. On the left is our classic steel flesh tunnel with a threaded back. It is easy to insert and will stay securely in place once the back is screwed on. We also have a large gauge version, available in sizes above 20mm. In the middle is our small lip version, which is internally threaded. This means that this central tube has smooth sides, ideal for irritated or sensitive piercings.

How To Open Continuous Piercing Rings

Our continuous piercing rings are easy to use and give you a wonderful seamless look. Opening them is straightforward, but slightly different to opening a ball closure ring. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Hold the two ends of the ring firmly on either side of the gap.
  2. Twist the ends away from each other, one going towards you, one going away.
  3. When the gap is a few millimetres wide, insert the ring into your piercing.
  4. Now twist the ends back into their original position.

You can wear these ear piercing bars in ear lobe piercings, tragus piercings or helix piercings.

All our ear piercing bars are made from high quality surgical steel. They are finely finished and hand checked to ensure that even the smallest piece of jewellery is the best possible quality. These bars are non-irritating and very comfortable to wear. All six come in 1.2mm and the bars are 6mm long. This makes them ideal for the small spaces in your ear and gives a more petite look.

Start the new year in style with our brand new clip-on ear cuffs. These ear cuffs do not require a piercing, instead they simply push onto the outside of your ear. These ear cuffs have a beautiful filigree design that looks very feminine and elegant. They snake up the outside of your ear and make a lovely alternative to earrings. Both cuffs have a central portion that clips around your ear – for the most comfortable wear I suggest placing this middle section in the centre of the edge of your ear, so the top and bottom will fit nicely onto your ear. These ear cuffs are made from high quality surgical steel with a beautiful finish. This means that they are very comfortable to wear and will not irritate your skin, in the way that cheap high street jewellery can. Being wholly made of surgical steel also means that you can gently bend them to fit your ear. You can pinch or widen the central part to get the most comfortable fit around your ear, but they will still retain their shape and amazing shine. We also have many more clip-on ear cuffs, which you can find in the Clip On Earrings & Earrcuffs section of the website.

These ball closure rings work in the same way as plain BCRs and are just as easy to fit and insert.

New Jewelled Charm Nipple Bar

Discover a new type of piercing jewellery with our range of titanium continuous piercing rings. These rings are a great alternative to BCRs and smooth segment rings. Like segment rings, they give the appearance of a smooth, continuous ring. They consist of a simple titanium ring with a small gap on one side. Once inserted into your piercing, they give a seamless appearance and will stay securely in place. The result is much more comfortable than a BCR and gives you a more streamlined, elegant look. You can wear a continuous piercing ring in almost any piercing, including ear piercings, lip, eyebrow, nipple and septum piercings. These piercing rings are made from high quality G23 titanium, so they are completely non-irritating, nickel-free and very comfortable to wear.

How To Use Continuous Piercing Rings

To insert a continuous piercing ring, you will need to make the gap wide enough to accommodate your piercing. To do so, gently twist the two ends away from each other, either by hand or using a pair of ring opening pliers. Do not simply pull them apart sideways (as you would with a BCR), as this will distort the ring too much. Then insert the ring into your piercing. Once the continuous ring is in place, twist the ends back into position. Titanium is extremely durable and should original retain its shape if handled with care.

White Steel Continuous Piercing Rings

We also have two continuous piercing rings in white steel. These piercing rings are made from high quality steel with an anodised white finish. The finish is similar to that of coloured titanium – it is smooth, durable and does not alter the biocompatibility of the steel. These rings are very comfortable to wear and available in both 1.2mm and 1.6mm.

The result is a beautiful piece that drapes across your ear and really stands out. Our ear piercing cuffs come in ten glamorous designs, most of which you can see below.

Our blackline ear piercing jewellery combines a sleek look with amazing comfort, so no matter which ear piercings you have. Blackline is a truly unique material for piercing jewellery, consisting of surgical quality titanium with a smooth, biocompatible black coating.
