Acrylic balls and threaded accessories come in a vast range of bright colours and shapes, with an abundance of choice for everyone! Threaded balls and acrylic accessoriesÂ come in a range of different acrylics, including PMMA, Ultra Violet and Glow in the Dark. An acrylic ball can be threaded onto your jewellery stem, for example your labret stud, barbell, bananabell, circular barbell or body spiral. Acrylic balls and threaded accessories can be mixed and matched to really brighten up your look, or to replace your metal threaded accessories with a lighter, cheaper and non-metal alternative.
You canâ€™t beat a bright and funky range of acrylic threaded accessories for your body piercings during the hot summer months, whether you are on holiday or in need of something colourful and cute!
Advantages of Acrylic Ball Accessories
The greatest advantage of acrylic balls and accessories are the fabulously vivid colours on offer! They even come in spectrum designsÂ such asÂ stripes, glitter, stars, polka dot, zebra stripes, armyÂ camouflage, Â and other painted designs create a very unique style for your body piercings.
Acrylic balls are also softer than metal, so are ideal for non-metal alternatives when choosing jewellery for surgery or other medical reasons. Non-metal acrylic balls are also great for wearing in tongue piercings and other oral piercings, as they prevent accidental teeth-chipping and damage to the mouth. The only thing to keep in mind is thatÂ your body jewelleryÂ will inevitably react to the enzymes in your mouth, gradually rubbing away any printed designs on the ball over a period of time; but the price of acrylic jewellery is so cheap soÂ you can always replace your jewellery and create a new look without any problems!
Acrylic balls are also very lightweight, and are often substituted for metal jewellery when worn in larger quantities â€“ if you have lots of piercings, the weight of all your jewellery does add up!
PMMA Acrylic Balls
PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate) is a high quality acrylic material that is often used as an alternative to glass. It is a very durable, scratch resistant and biocompatible material for piercing jewellery, often used in the medical industry.
Ultra Violet Acrylic Balls
UV Reactive acrylic balls are stunning in daylight, but absolutely dazzling when in Ultra Violet light; perfect for bars, clubs and nights out!
Ultra Violet acrylic balls and other threaded accessories include a wide range of shapes and styles, including these funkyÂ acrylic fluorescentÂ spaceships, layered tabs, acrylic cones, and acrylic dice.
Glow in the Dark AcrylicÂ Balls
