Flexible body jewellery is one of the best ways to ensure that your piercing feels comfortable, especially for a high-movement location like a navel piercing. Your belly button sees a surprising amount of movement- the skin bends every time you walk, sit or stand. This means that the actual shape of the piercing changes, which puts stress on the piercing. By wearing a bendy bananabell, you can reduce this stress and keep your navel piercing feeling great at all times. Bendy bananabells bend with your piercing, so it is always the right shape for your piercing. It is also less likely to get caught on clothing and feels really soft.

Acrylic Bendy Bananabells

Acrylic is a great material for body jewellery because it can be made rigid or flexible. Flexible acrylic bananabells are cheap, lightweight, durable and really comfortable to wear. They come in lots of fab colours and designs, including glitter, clear and UV options. They are perfect if you love colourful jewellery and because most are under £3, you can afford to buy a bunch of different colours!

Bioplast Bendy Bananabells

Bioplast is a unique material that is extremely biocompatible. This means it does not irritate your skin at all, giving you unbeatable comfort. It is also very flexible, beautifully smooth and lightweight. If your navel piercing is often sore or won’t heal properly, I would definitely recommend on of these bendy bananabells. As you can see, most Bioplast bananabells do not come with top balls – you will need to buy these separately. Other than that they are a great choice and come in lots of awesome colours too.

Most people have their belly button pierced with metal jewellery but many people find that a non-metal, flexible bananabell is more comfortable. Flexible bananabells are made from biocompatible plastics like Bioplast and PMMA acrylic. They bend with your body, which puts less stress on your piercing. They are also less likely to get caught on clothing or press uncomfortably into your stomach. Another great thing about flexible bananabells is that because they are metal-free, they are much less likely to irritate your piercing.

UV Flexible Bananabells

These UV flexible bananabells are part of a new range on Body Jewellery Shop. They are made from flexible PMMA and they are very comfortable to wear. The balls are UV-reactive so they are perfect for clubs, festivals and parties.

Brand new in the BJS online store this week are flexible barbells. These barbells come in a gorgeous range of colours that will really brighten up your look. But flexible barbells don’t just look good; they are also very comfortable and can reduce some of the risks associated with tongue piercings. These flexible barbells are made from a new type of flexible PMMA acrylic that is very durable but bendy. This means that they bend with your body and put less stress on your piercings. These barbells are ideal for tongue piercings and nipple piercings.

Advantages of Flexible Barbells for Tongue Piercings

The main risk associated with tongue piercings is tooth damage, either by chipping teeth when you bite down on the bar or the bar rubbing your teeth over the years. Fortunately flexible barbells can all but eliminate these risks, so you can keep your piercing and protect your oral health at the same time. Flexible barbells are simply too soft to damage your teeth in the same way. If you accidentally bite one it won’t chip your teeth and they are too soft to wear away enamel or push on your teeth.

Pearl Silver & PTFE Nipple Chain

When you are buying nipple jewellery if can be hard to find jewellery that is both attractive and comfortable. Comfort is very important for nipple piercing jewellery – whether you are male of female, it’s a sensitive area. Nipple jewellery can rub against your clothing and the wrong choice of nipple jewellery can really irritate your piercing. I have learned from experience that even a slightly uncomfortable piece of nipple jewellery can become the most annoying thing in the world very quickly!

Thankfully there is an easy solution: PTFE nipple jewellery. PTFE nipple bars are flexible and extremely comfortable to wear. This is because PFTE is one of the most biocompatible materials in the world. It is flexible; hypoallergenic; non-stick and can shorten healing times. The non-stick quality is great for nipple piercings – it means that lymph does not stick to your piercing and it hardly needs cleaning. I recommend PTFE nipple jewellery to anyone with a nipple piercing, especially if yours hasn’t healed properly or is often sore. The best part is that PTFE nipple jewellery comes in lots of cool designs, so you can show off your piercings while keeping them comfortable.

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
