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

Most people wear a metal barbell in their tongue piercing but what if you need something different? The answer is often a plastic tongue ring – plastic tongue rings feel softer, won’t damage your teeth and are safe for X-rays and hospital. Non-metal tongue rings are also a good compromise for school – many schools believe tongue bars are unsafe but the majority will agree to a plastic tongue retainer as a compromise.

When you hear the words “plastic tongue ring” you might think of a cheap, flimsy plastic ring, but piercing technology has come a long way! Nowadays “plastic” tongue piercing jewellery is made from hi-tech biological plastics such as BioFlex and PMMA, both of which are highly biocompatible. BioFlex is also proven to reduce healing times, so it’s great for getting your tongue pierced with too.

Choosing the right industrial piercing jewellery can have a huge effect on how your industrial piercing heals but fortunately there is a great choice of jewellery out there, so you can make sure your industrial piercing feels and looks great.

Industrial piercings consist of two ear-rim piercings with one bar worn through both piercings. They can be pierced straight across the ear horizontally or at any angle. Industrials look amazing and there are lots of different bars you can wear in yours. The key thing to remember is that your industrial piercing jewellery must fit correctly – badly fitting jewellery can put pressure on the piercings, resulting in discomfort, rejection or migration. Luckily all you need to do is measure the length of barbell you need. To find this out measure a bar you already have or measure across the piercing, from the outside of one piercing to the outside of the other.

Plain Industrial Piercing Jewellery

The simplest and easiest kind of industrial piercing jewellery is a plain barbell. You can get your industrial piercing done with a plain barbell and they offer a clean, simple look for smart occasions. Any barbell can be worn in an industrial as long at it is big enough – never wear a barbell that is too short in your industrial piercing!
