Hollow flesh tunnels are a classic option for stretched ear piercings and they come in a huge choice of designs. Hollow flesh tunnels are cylinder-shaped pieces of jewellery that are lighter than solid flesh plugs and often place less stress on the piercing as a result. Another advantage of hollow flesh plugs is that they are compact and do not move around in the piercing, as large gauge BCRs and bars can.
Steel Hollow Flesh Tunnels
Surgical steel is one of the most popular materials for body jewellery because it is biocompatible, strong and cheap. Surgical steel is very comfortable to wear and it can be made into a wide range of hollow flesh tunnels, from plain tubes to glamorous designs like these jewelled steel flesh tunnels. It is important to make sure that your tunnels are made from high quality surgical steel, as inferior steel jewellery can irritate your ears. Here are BJS all our steel jewellery is superior 316L surgical steel but if you are shopping elsewhere always ask before you buy.
Wood Hollow Flesh Tunnels
Wood is a lovely material for stretching jewellery because it is very lightweight, extremely biocompatible and always stays at body temperature. Wood hollow flesh tunnels reduce the weight on your piercings and for many people they are the most comfortable type of jewellery. They will not irritate your skin and they are a great natural choice. Wood is not suitable for stretching with, so I recommend using buffalo horn stretching crescents and switching to wood hollow flesh tunnels when you reach your desired gauge.
