If you find that normal earrings irritate your ears, I recommend switching to BioFlex earrings. BioFlex is a flexible biocompatible plastic that feels comfortable and helps your ear piercings to stay healed, supple and healthy. It is also non-stick, so these earrings are very easy to keep clean. I wear all sorts of different earrings but I always fall back on BioFlex because it is so comfortable. I also use it to help my ears recover if they get irritated from wearing cheap earrings. Most shops do not sell a specific product called ‘BioFlex earrings’ but you can actually wear any BioFlex labret as a stud earring. These studs are usually sold as singles, so be sure to buy two if you want a pair of earrings.

Silver and BioFlex Earrings

These silver and BioFlex earrings have been a real hit on BodyJewelleryShop.com. They consist of a BioFlex stud with a silver head that just pushes into the stem. The head fits securely so you don’t have to worry about them falling out. These earrings are all under £4 so they are a fairly cheap way of getting real silver earrings – plus they are much more comfortable. Once you have a pair you can swap the heads for other accessories and get lots more looks.

BioFlex is a great material for piercing jewellery and BioFlex bars are one of the most versatile pieces of jewellery you can buy. They are barbells made of BioFlex, a revolutionary flexible material that feels great in your piercing and is surprisingly cheap to buy. BioFlex is a biocompatible plastic so it is very flexible, completely biocompatible and also has a non-stick quality. It bends with your body in order to reduce stress on your piercings and is very easy to clean, thanks to the non-stick finish. BioFlex can actually reduce healing times and I recommend it for any piercing that is often sore or irritated – put in a BioFlex bar and it will clear right up.

The biggest advantage is for tongue piercings. Because BioFlex is so flexible, it will not rub on your teeth and gums, so there is much less chance of gum recession or tooth chipping. I also found that there was no plaque build up – the only tongue jewellery I have used that managed this.

When it comes to comfortable navel jewellery, you can’t beat BioFlex navel rings. BioFlex is a revolutionary material for navel rings, a special type of biocompatible plastic that gives you complete comfort and actually helps to reduce healing times. Here at Body Jewellery Shop we have a great choice of BioFlex navel rings, some of which you can see below. BioFlex is very bendy and soft, so it moves with your body and reduces stress on the piercing. It is also completely biocompatible and non-irritating, so it is ideal for sensitive piercings and can even help your piercings to heal. It is also non-stick, which makes these navel rings much easier to keep clean.

Classic BioFlex Navel Rings

These BioFlex navel rings have the same basic shape as traditional metal belly bars. They are easy to use and come in a fantastic choice of cool colours and glamorous jewels. I would recommend these highly, especially if your navel piercing is often sore or your jewellery gets caught on clothing. Because these navel rings are flexible they are less likely to get caught or press uncomfortably into your skin.

Get a simple, stylish look with white body jewellery. White body jewellery makes a great alternative to traditional silver and black jewellery and it really makes your piercings stand out. There are many different materials that can be used to create white body jewellery, including two of the most biocompatible: silicone and Bioplast. I like wearing white body jewellery when I want to simplify my look. I usually wear a lot of wooden and silver body jewellery, so white jewellery gives me a fresh new look.

Bioplast White Body Jewellery

Bioplast is a biocompatible plastic that looks and feels great in your piercings. It is extremely lightweight, flexible and hypoallergenic. I recommend white Bioplast body jewellery if your piercings are irritated or often sore. It actually reduces healing times and lymph doesn’t stick to it, so it gives your piercings ‘a break’ from traditional jewellery. These are just some of the white Bioplast items that we have here at Body Jewellery Shop and I love the clean look it gives.

If you have a nose piercing and go to school or college, you may be in luck – many schools allow nose piercings, even if they do not allow other facial piercings. Nose piercings are seen as more ‘normal’ and some schools turn a blind eye to them. If however your school does not allow nose piercings, you will need to invest in a nose piercing retainer. Nose piercing retainers are easy to use and they do a great job of hiding your nose piercing.

Nose piercings are relatively easy to hide, especially if they are tucked into the curve on the side of your nostril. Most nose piercing retainers hide the nose piercing completely and look like a mole or pimple. Some are completely invisible but most are just very discrete. A well-chosen nose piercing retainer will only be spotted by people who know you have your nose pierced. There are two main types of nose piercing retainers, which you can learn more about below. Everyone is different and you may need to experiment to see which type of nose piercing retainer is right for you.

Tongue Piercings

Tongue Piercings

US researchers at the university of Buffalo New York have set a worldwide panic regarding tongue piercings, implying that they can cause damage to teeth, causing gaps in them from pushing metal studs against the teeth. However when you look at materials such as Bio Flex Tongue Jewellery, none of the raised issues are relevant.  Bio Flex is a transparent and discreet material with superb biocompatibility and it’s flexible which reduces stress caused by movements. As Bio Flex is metal-free so there are no risks from chipping the teeth accidentally and they are fantastic for healing sensitive body parts such as tongues. You can also cut Bio Flex body jewellery to size, enabling you to enjoy the most comfortable fit. In addition to this you can even safely wear Bio Flex Tongue Jewellery to hospital appointments, the dentist and whilst pregnant. So long as you are responsible with your piercings and make sure you follow the essential aftercare tips there is no reason why you can’t continue to enjoy tongue piercings.

Tongue-Piercing-Woman

At BJS we are used to hearing alarmist claims about the danger of body piercings and today is no different – a study from the University at Buffalo claims that tongue bars damage teeth. They have released a report based on a single patient, resulting in many high profile news websites plastering their front pages with unsubstantiated claims that tongue piercings lead to tooth damage, brain abscesses and expensive dental work.

Unfortunately for said news websites the University at Buffalo study is not representative of the majority experience (hands up everyone with tongue piercings and healthy teeth!), responsible piercing aftercare or modern tongue studs. Basically the report concerns a 26 year old woman who has developed a gap in her teeth due to playing with her metal barbell for 7 years.


University at Buffalo Claims Tongue Bars Damage Your Teeth

My main objection to this story is that it is the experience of one person and that some basic piercing advice could have prevented her problems – if she did not have access to such advice or a good piercer, then that is another issue. The story offers no statistics on the supposed link between tongue piercing and tooth damage, so all we have is one individual who had a bad experience.

If your belly button piercing is often sore or irritated, I recommend switching to a BioFlex belly bar. BioFlex is an amazing new material that reduces irritation, swelling and stress on your piercing. It is now available in the form of belly bars and these BioFlex belly bars are the most comfortable I have ever worn.

BioFlex belly bars are completely different for metal bars because they feel soft and flexible. This means that they bend with your body and if they get caught on your clothing, it’s much less painful. Another great thing about BioFlex belly bars is their biocompatibility. BioFlex is hypoallergenic and cannot irritate the skin, so it reduces irritation and shortens healing times. It’s also a great option if you are sensitive to metals. My belly button piercing got really sore after wearing a cheap bar and my piercer recommended a BioFlex belly bar. So I swapped over and within a couple of days it had completely healed up. If you’ve every had an angry red piercing you’ll know how relieved I was when it felt comfortable again!

Classic BioFlex Belly Bars

These classic BioFlex belly bars are the same shape as traditional metal belly bars. They have a 5mm top ball and a 8mm bottom ball, featuring a large jewel. These belly bars are cute, comfortable and amazing value, so they are great belly bars for everyday wear. The colours are really bright and they make a gorgeous alternative to your old metal bars.

Multi-Use Body Piercing Tubes

Multi-use body piercing tubes are a revolutionary type of piercing jewellery – a flexible, biocompatible bar that you can trim to size and use with a huge choice of accessories. Multi-use body piercing tubes can be used in almost any piercing and feel much more comfortable than metal bars. They are made from BioFlex, so they are very bendy and can help reduce healing times – what more could you want?

The thing that makes multi-use body piercing tubes different from regular BioFlex bars is that they are hollow. This might not sound very important but the fact that these tubes are hollow allows you to trim them and cut them in half. It also gives them their flexibility, very light weight and means that they are compatible with threaded metal balls, internally threaded metal balls, push-fit accessories, BioFlex accessories and O-rings.


Benefits of multi-use piercing tubes

• Can shorten healing times
• High flexibility reduces stress on piercing
• Highest biocompatibility of any piercing jewellery
• Lightest body jewellery available
• Can be trimmed to fit/cut in half
• Compatible with huge range of accessories
• Very affordable
• Metal-free
• Ideal piercing retainer
• Safe for hospital, X-ray, MRI scans and pregnancy
• Can be autoclaved
• Ideal as initial jewellery – use a tube with room for swelling and simply trim excess when swelling has gone down

If you’re strapped for cash but still want a cute belly ring don’t worry, there are plenty of cute but cheap belly button rings! The main thing to remember when looking for a cheap belly ring is quality – poor quality body jewellery can lead to irritated or infected piercings. At BJS we have lots of great quality belly button jewellery for under £5, so there is no excuse for subjecting your belly button to substandard jewellery!

My advice is to only buy your belly piercing jewellery from a proper piercing shop or specialist online store. Never by a cheap belly ring if you don’t know what it is made out of. Unlabelled belly rings might contain nickel or other cheap metals that will irritate your piercing. If the shop assistant can’t tell you what a belly ring is made out of, walk away – it’s not worth risking the health of your piercings. Thankfully there is a huge range of good quality cheap belly rings available, in top-notch materials that will be kind to your piercings.


Cheap Steel Belly Button Rings

Surgical steel is a relatively cheap material and you can now find a huge range of cheap steel belly rings. These belly button rings come in a wide choice of styles and make it easy to create any look. Make sure that your cheap belly button ring is made from surgical steel – any other type of steel can irritate your skin. Here are some of my favourite steel belly button rings under £5:
