Tag Archives: Large Gauge Piercing Jewellery

Finding lightweight large gauge jewellery can sometimes be hard, but here at Body Jewellery Shop we have a great selection of large gauge plugs that are also lightweight, which is very important for comfort and maintaining a particular gauge. The problem with some plugs is that they get heavy over a certain gauge, which means that they gradually stretch your ears over time. Metal large gauge flesh plugs can also put undue stress on your stretching, which can lead to thinning at the bottom of your ear. The best lightweight options are silicone, wood and acrylic flesh plugs, which remain comfortable even at large gauges.

Lightweight Large Gauge Hollow Plugs

If you are looking for a lightweight plug over 20mm, a hollow design is usually the best way to go. By simply using less material, flesh tunnels are very lightweight, especially when made of super-light acrylic and silicone. Silicone in particular is excellent at this size: it is very light and flexible, squashes down under pressure and is extremely biocompatible. All three flesh plugs shown here come in a range of different colours and gauges. My top recommendation would be the Kaos eyelet in the middle – it is high quality, very comfortable and comes in over 10 colours, including UV options.

Lightweight Large Gauge Flesh Plugs

A solid flesh plug is by its very nature heavier than a hollow plug, so if you want this type of jewellery it is important to choose a lightweight material. These three plugs are a good place to start and all are very light. I would recommend the blue star flesh plug in particular. It has a hollow-backed design that reduces its weight even further and the back edge unscrews for easy insertion.

Find the perfect large gauge jewellery for your piercings with our range of large gauge circular barbells. We have a great choice of large circular barbells, including lightweight materials and superior quality machined metals. It is so important to find the right jewellery for your large gauge piercings, both in terms of comfort and in terms of maintaining your desired gauge. Our range allows you to choose the best of both and make the best match for your piercings.

PMMA Large Gauge Circular Barbells

PMMA is a lightweight acrylic that is ideal for large gauge circular barbells. It is durable, lightweight and feels very comfortable to wear. Another key feature is the polished smooth surface. This means that the jewellery slides cleanly through newly stretched piercings and is able to move freely through the stretching. PMMA is also available in a great choice of colours, so you can mix and match to create your look.

Metal Large Gauge Circular Barbells

Large gauge metal jewellery can be very heavy, something that can be a positive or a negative depending on your gauge. These metal circular barbells weigh down your stretchings slightly, so they will cause extra stretching in all but very well established stretched piercings. They are beautifully machined in high quality titanium and surgical steel, so you get maximum comfort at all times.

Stylish large gauge jewellery can be hard to find but here at Body Jewellery Shop we have a fantastic selection of 20mm flesh plugs to choose from. We have lots of different materials and styles, so it’s easy to find flesh plugs that look great. As with all stretching jewellery, comfort is just as important as style. So we make sure that our flesh plugs are made only from biocompatible materials that are comfortable to wear and work in harmony with your skin. Everyone is different, but below are some of our most popular plugs, in two materials that offer both comfort and great value for money.

Acrylic 20mm Flesh Plugs

These acrylic flesh plugs combine great style and colour with comfort and value. They are made from high quality PMMA acrylic, a glossy plastic that is very comfortable to wear. They are lightweight despite their size and reduce stress on the inside of your stretching. One of the great things about PMMA acrylic is that is can be made in any colour or pattern, so you get a fantastic choice of different styles. It is also durable, easy to clean and quite inexpensive.

Wood 20mm Flesh Plugs

Natural materials are always recommended for stretching jewellery and these wood flesh plugs are no exception. Wood is a highly biocompatible material, especially when oiled with a natural oil such as jojoba, olive or hemp oil. Wood flesh plugs help to reduce irritation and odour, as well as retaining moisture in the skin. They are also lightweight and feel so comfortable to wear. As you can see below, the natural colours of the wood are beautiful and look great against your skin, giving you naturally gorgeous stretchings.
