They say natural is best and when it comes to flesh tunnels, I definitely think that is true. Wood flesh tunnels look stylish and feel great, making them one of the best options for stretched ears. I have been wearing wood flesh tunnels and plugs for years and I heartily recommend them. Since I switched to wood flesh tunnels I have found them very comfortable and had absolutely no problems.
Wood is a natural, biocompatible material, so it feels very comfortable to wear. It does not irritate your skin and most people find it much better than other materials. I particularly recommend wood flesh tunnels for people who have had problems with metal or plastic tunnels. Wood allows your skin to breathe and it is non-irritating for even sensitive skin. Another great thing about wood flesh tunnels is that they reduce odour, which is a blessing with newly stretched tunnels. Unfortunately wooden jewellery is not ideal for stretching with. I recommend using buffalo horn tapers to stretch with and switching to wooden jewellery once your new stretchings are completely healed up. That is what I did and I have had great results.
Benefits of Wearing Wood Flesh Tunnels
Overall, wood flesh tunnels are comfortable and great for your stretchings. They really work in harmony with your skin and most people find them very comfortable. For simplicityâ€™s sake, here are the benefits of wearing wood flesh tunnels:
- Very comfortable
- Suitable for all healed stretchings
- Reduce odour
- Safe for X-rays, MRI scans and medical procedures
- Available in many designs
Wood flesh tunnels are very durable but I recommend using skin-friendly oils to keep them in top condition. Jojoba, olive and hemp seed oil are fantastic for your skin and will also protect your wooden jewellery. These oils can be used to clean your tunnels – I recommend using them to remove any gunk and lightly oiling the tunnels before you reinsert them. The oil will keep your skin healthy and prevent the wood from drying out or splitting in cold weather.
