Treat your ears to comfort and style with our range of natural buffalo horn flesh plugs. These plugs look great, feel comfortable and are a great option if your ears react to metal and plastic flesh tunnels. All our buffalo horn flesh tunnels are made with horn that is naturally shed and ethically obtained, without harming the water buffalo. It is a great natural material that is biocompatible and can be made into a huge variety of stylish jewellery.

Water buffalo horn is non-reactive, so it will not irritate your ears. It helps to reduce odour and is very lightweight, so it will not stretch your ears gradually over time. The horn can also be polished to a very smooth finish, which makes it easy to insert into a new stretching. We have a huge range of buffalo flesh tunnels, some of which you can see below.

Solid Buffalo Horn Flesh Plugs

These buffalo flesh plugs are made from solid sections of horn, painted and carved to give you a great choice of styles. As well as plain plugs we also have a huge range of cool designs, including triangular and square flesh plugs. All of our buffalo horn plugs are double flared, which means that they stay securely in your ears and do not require O-rings.

Discover a whole new look with our shaped buffalo flesh tunnels. These tunnels come a fantastic range of shapes, giving you something completely different to your standard round tunnel. They completely change the shape of your lobes and turn a classic piercing on its head. Our shaped buffalo flesh tunnels are comfortable to wear and make a real statement.

Buffalo horn is ideal for carving into these differently shaped tunnels. It is lightweight but very strong, so it holds the shape without weighing down your lobes. It is also non-irritating and has a lovely smooth feel. I would only recommend these tunnels for mature stretchings, as they place more stress on the skin than a round tunnel. This can be a problem with newly-stretched piercings but is fine for mature stretches. That said, they are not meant for long term wear – I would recommend putting round tunnels back in at night.

Tips For Wearing Differently Shaped Buffalo Flesh Tunnels

Differently shaped buffalo flesh tunnels are easy and comfortable to wear. They do however place more stress on your stretchings, so it is important to keep an eye on them. Follow our tips to keep your stretchings healthy while enjoying their unique look:

  • Add a drop of olive, jojoba or hemp oil to ease insertion.
  • Wear only for short periods of time.
  • Replace with round tunnels for sleeping.
  • Wait until your stretchings are completely healed before wearing different shape tunnels.
  • Clean with olive, hemp or jojoba oil as needed.
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to chlorinated water.
  • If you experience pain while wearing, remove immediately. Replace with round tunnels when possible.
  • Keep an eye on your stretchings to ensure that there is no thinning of the stretching. If this happens, replace with round tunnels.


If you’re thinking about stretching your ears, I recommend using buffalo horn stretching crescents. Buffalo horn crescents are great to stretch with and they are great to wear after you have reached your desired size. Buffalo horn is one of the most biocompatible natural materials for body jewellery and it is very comfortable to wear. It does not react with your skin and is suitable for even sensitive piercings. It is also suitable for fresh stretches. Another quality that makes buffalo horn stretching crescents ideal for stretching is their smoothness. Buffalo horn can be polished to a beautifully smooth shine. It slides gently into stretchings, without the drag factor common to some other materials. Water buffalo horn is natural shed once a year, so it is obtained without harming the buffalo.

Buffalo Stretching Crescents Kit

This buffalo horn stretching crescent kit is a very popular way to stretch. It includes five crescents that will take you from a standard size ear piercing – usually 1.2mm (16g) right up to 10mm (00g). I used these crescents to stretch my ears and I was really pleased with them. I used a little olive oil on the crescents and they slid in nicely. I healed up fairly rapidly and found them very comfortable to wear in between sizes. Once I got to 10mm I decided to rest my ears before going up to 12mm, so I wore the largest crescent and a matching one for a while. They look really good in your stretchings and I got lots of compliments on them. I then used a taper to go up another 2mm but I am really glad I used the crescents up to 10mm.
