Flesh tunnels take a prominent part of nowadays body piercing jewellery. They are related to the wider topic of body modification. The term flesh tunnel is quite self-exsmoothing, meaning stretched holes in the human body. Flesh tunnels are mainly worn in stretched earlobes and start with an earlobe piercing. Contrary to other opinions, the piercing procedure should be performed by a professional piercer or jeweller. Afterwards the earlobe piercing is modified by the help of proper accessories like stretchers and expanders. The stretching takes place over several weeks and months to ease the adaption of the flesh. There is no uniform taste concerning the size of stretched earlobes. To date mostly men are into the extra big sizes. With flesh tunnels becoming a trending topic over the past years, more and more women seek to define their own new limits of stretching and body modification. Starting with a diameter of 1mm, the upper end of the scale ranges from 50 to 60mm. You can find every possible size in our shop. If you are in favour of big flesh tunnels at low prices, we would like to warmly welcome you.
Next to the term flesh tunnel, the body modification scene also speaks of tunnel earrings or tunnel piercings. That particular ear jewellery has different origins dating back hundreds and perhaps thousands of years. The growing interest in body modification with an increasing variety in colours, shapes, designs and materials helps you find your individual piercing jewellery that connect personality and taste perfectly.
With the help of an expander (a particular stretching tool), the piercing cut in the earlobe will be constantly stretched to the point you can look through and put in a flesh tunnel. Despite differences in material, most flesh tunnels out of steel, titan or acrylic consist of an internal or external thread. This makes it especially easy for beginners to put into the stretched earlobes. There are also piercing tubes. They consist of a flesh tunnel that is fixed with O-shaped sealing rings.
The stretching of earlobes is a persistent process that needs some patience. The ones stretching to fast, risk the danger of an unprofessional result or even the damage of their tissue. Helpful tips for the right procedure can be found in our blog.
Flesh tunnels don't necessarily need to be worn in your earlobes. The world of body modification also contains stretched nostril piercings, lip piercings or even tongue piercings. Whether a classical ear piercing or something extraordinary, our shop offers the full range of flesh tunnels and ear plugs.
The only matches between these two jewellery items are the earlobe piercing needed and the positioning in the ear. For your flesh tunnel, you need to stretch the piercing cut to a size, where you can put in a (small) flesh tunnel. Over the time you can keep stretching your earlobe piercings to bigger sizes. Nowadays, both genders increasingly tend towards new extreme spheres. 20 or 30mm thereby become quite normal.
You should take your time to think about the PRO's and CON's of stretched earlobes. Can you name the main reasons to come up with such an idea? Body modification is no easy decision to make. Please consider possible consequences in your family, circle of friends or at work. If you can deal with them: welcome to Flesh Tunnel Shop, your new home for flesh tunnels, ear plugs and everything in between.
The whole procedure of stretching requires time, patience and discipline. Allow your body necessary pauses to let the body recover best possible. Patience is your No. 1 partner in this game.
Everything starts with the piercing cut. It better not be recently pierced but healed for some time. If this is the case, slowly stretch the cut from time to time and give it the chance to constantly evolve.
There are many important parts of the stretching. Expanders, enlarging crescents and the actual jewellery should be constantly disinfected to reduce the risk of infection. Please stay away from tools and items improper to stretch. Our shop offers more than enough awesome products like straight expanders, enlarging crescents and expander snakes ranging from unicoloured basics to unique design pieces. Different materials like steel, wood, acrylic or titan round the product line. If there are still some open questions concerning the use of expanders please contact us or browse through our blog.
Flesh tunnels and other ways of body modification have been around the world for quite some time. Existing throughout many cultures and centuries, flesh tunnels are a rather new phenomenon in western societies. Many indigenous tribes stretched their earlobes and wore flashy jewellery.
Favoured materials included organics like horn, wood and bones or precious metals like gold and silver. The jewellery often implicated power and strength, naming African tribe lords or even pharaohs like Tutanchamun as prominent representatives. The famous golden death-mask clearly shows stretched earlobes. Another well-known character is Buddha with widened earlobes on many images. Last but not least the Moai represent another culture far from the western world. Never heard? Perhaps you better know them as giant stone statues from the Easter Islands. Next to the stretched earlobes, there are signs of ancient "expanders".
These examples support the notion of body modification being nearly as old as mankind itself. Spreading from the Incas and Mayans to different cultures in Central Asia and Polynesia, also the meaning of flesh tunnels can vary. It mainly switches between the communication of the social status in a tribe or as a result of individual beauty ideals.
Whether trend or tradition, we consider flesh tunnels a perfect way to individually modify your body and presence. New materials und design opportunities give you an ever-changing selection of jewellery.
There is a wide range of materials for flesh tunnels. If you ask yourself which material to be the best, there is no definite answer since every material has its PRO's and CON's. Your individual taste plays a big part in choosing the right material. To simplify your choice, we'd like to present you all the available materials in our online shop.
Flesh tunnels manufactured out of surgical steel 316L belong to the classics and bestsellers within the range of flesh tunnel materials. They are especially suitable for beginners. The smooth surface can be easily cleaned and gives your jewellery a classy look. The material makes them resistant to external damages, reduces skin friction and is always a good low-priced alternative to other materials. Considering possible pollutions, the surface makes it quite difficult for sweat, contaminants and bacteria to persist. The only negative part of the story is the relatively high weight. You should have this in mind when buying big flesh tunnels of 30mm or more.
Titan is considered the most premium material among tunnels. Sadly the production of titan is intensive in time and money. That's why titan fabricated flesh tunnels are relatively expansive. Still there are plenty arguments for titan. The material is exceptionally resilient while being relatively light. We can ensure you a long living product that fits all your demands. That's being said, our items are not fully titan but with a titan alloy. There are two reasons for that. First, jewellery completely made out of titan wasn't affordable. Second, titan belongs to the ductile materials, meaning it can be plastically deformed.
Acrylic flesh tunnels are pretty popular in the body modification scene. The synthetic material keeps them affordable and facilitates diversity. The molding simplifies the adaption of new shapes like triangles or hexagons. A good wearing comfort can be ensured through the light weight. The smooth surface reduces the possible infection with bacteria and enhances the insertion. All acrylic items are nickel-free and therefore especially fit the requests of allergy sufferers. Since the material can be easily affected by that we would like to suggest not using aggressive cleansers.
Silicone offers a special wearing comfort. The material is really soft and adjusts to nearly any shape. As well as acrylic, silicone tunnels are nickel-free and well tolerated. External influences like bacteria and others are easily averted by the material. Silicone not being breathable makes it mostly inappropriate to wear in the healing process. If you live a stressful life, it may also not fit your daily demands. The cheap prices in our shop still make it compelling to at least try them out for one time.
Wooden flesh tunnels are favoured more and more among piercing fans. Thinking of the beginnings of human body modification and solely organic materials being used, the motto could be "back to the roots". Especially nature lovers will love this. Wood is pretty light and breathable. This keeps unpleasant smell away from wooden flesh tunnels and reduces cleaning affords. Wood as an organic material leads to unique items. You can be sure to own a flesh tunnel nobody else will.
As well as wood, people used bones to manufacture jewellery through all times and centuries. The organic origin of bones reduces skin irritations or allergic reactions. The material is quite robust and weatherproof. Bones are therefore a likely companion for festivals or other outdoor experiences. The individual texture of every bone part makes every item one of a kind.
Horn can be seen as the newcomer of the body mod community. Despite this starting trend in western countries, other cultures included horns the same way they did with bones and wood for hundreds of years. People wearing horn tunnels can benefit from some specialties. Horn is relatively light and gives you a nice wearing comfort. At the same time it is harder than wood which makes it long-lasting. The jaded look gives every piece a classy style.
Conditioned by nowadays work environments, many people prefer simple ear plugs to wear at the job in order to disguise the real size of their stretched earlobes. The mainly free top of an ear plug gives the opportunity for endless colours, designs and 3D shapes. That's why we chose to section our shop into a few main categories. For some items you may discover single overlaps. We strive to offer the biggest amount of plugs. If there is still anything missing, don't hesitate to let us know. We are always interested in news ideas.
Formerly, ear plugs were only known as small foam plugs you tucked into your ear as protection from loud construction noises or snoring bed neighbours. Nowadays, ear plugs got a new meaning as trendy fashion accessory.
Ear plugs, also known as tunnel plugs or flesh ear plugs are body piercings which get "plugged" into the stretched earlobe. This is the main difference compared to regular earrings. Although both are worn in the ear, ear plugs require much more initial preparation time. In order to wear ear plugs, you need to carefully stretch your pierced cut first by using ear stretchers or ear expanders.
There are ear plugs with internal and external threads as well as flared plugs without any thread. These plugs simply stay in their place because of their convenient shape. The midst of the plug is quite thin while the outer lips are a little wider. This creates a hyperbolic plug. You better not use them shortly after the stretching procedure. This could cause some trouble because of the broad edges possibly inflicting pain or emerging blood. A third plug shape is the straight plug. It has a cylindrical shape and includes so called "o-rings". Last but not least you can also discover triangular or square ear plugs.
The basics for flesh tunnels and ear plugs are much the same. You need a pierced earlobe in order to stretch it. Therefore time and endurance are key components. Take some moments to balance the PRO's and CON's of this future decision.
If you have decided towards a pierced earlobe, please don't start stretching within the first 4 to 6 weeks after your newly pierced cut. Designated stretching equipment like straight expanders or enlarging crescents help you meet your goals. Please don't use improperly tools you may find interesting to use as stretchers. Expanders like the ones in our shop are especially designed and fabricated to preserve the health of your skin. Separate to your final decision, it is important to check whether your accessory is disinfected. More information can be found in our blog.
Anyone believing in ear plugs as a contemporary trend is clearly mistaken. The origin may not be able to be exactly determined but it is known that stretched earlobes were already popular in ancient Egypt. The incas as a well developed culture also had a preference for gold and silver plated ear plugs. They mainly functioned as symbols of power and social status.
Africa as another continent with a big cultural diversity holds some interested approaches in terms of body modification. An extreme form can be found among the Ethiopian tribe of the Mursi. The young women of Mursi are famous for wearing huge plug plates in their bottom lip. This is achieved by a slice in the lip. Afterwards a wooden plate plug is placed in the wound. The bigger the plate the more respect a woman will get. This is because of the outstanding beauty ideal the Mursi embrace.
At the end of the 19th century ear plugs also established in the western world. The enduring interest in body modification concluded resulted in an unending wave of new colours, designs, materials and shapes.
Ear plug can be bought in a wide range of materials. Since every material has its PRO's and CON's we cannot argue for THE best material. A big part in choosing the right material is taken by your individual taste. To simplify your choice, our online shop includes all typically demanded options. Please have a look:
Ear plugs out of surgical steel 316L are far less demanded then flesh tunnels. The reason may occur in the bigger weight it can achieve at certain sizes. That's why you often find plugs with extra shapes and details like crystals or glass. Steel plugs are especially interesting for beginners. The smooth surface gives your jewellery a straight look and simplifies unpleasant cleaning routines. Surgical steel was developed for the usage in sterile environments. The defence of external damages, reduced skin friction and the difficulties for sweat, contaminants and bacteria to persist, speak for the material.
Acrylic ear plugs are known to be affordable and diverse in style. The adaption of new shapes like triangles and squares can be achieved through the manufacturing process of molding. The light weight facilitates a good wearing comfort. Possible infections with bacteria are hold back by the smooth surface. People suffering from allergies can trust in acrylic items to be nickel-free and therefore especially fitting. The use of aggressive cleansers is not advised.
One thing silicone is famous for is its great wearing comfort. The softness and flexibility make you enjoy silicone ear plugs for a long time. The material is nickel-free and therefore a good alternative in terms of allergy suffering. A problem that might occur is a possible complication during the healing process. Since the material is not breathable you better not wear it while the pierced skin is recovering. All in all silicone is a tried and tested plug material that fits both your requirements and wallet.
An organic material like wood perfectly combines several demands and wishes, piercing fans have. Wooden plugs are highly breathable. A bad smell other materials can enfold isn't the case. This makes wood a strong attendant for certain environments like the work place. The wood species we choose for production are also pretty light. So it may be a fine option for your sized earlobes. The uniqueness origin of each item caused by an organic is a completing argument towards wooden plugs.
It seems pretty crazy we turn a material from the inside to a fashion accessory on the outside of our bodies. But this is what happened for quite some time throughout human existence. There are good reasons for that. The ruggedness helps you withstand some tough situations. Bones consist of unique textures. It may support your demands for an individual piece of jewellery.
The dim appeal of horn can give you quite a notably style. Worn by tribes for thousands of year, it also found its way in the western body modification scene. The light structure and a hard surface at the same time present two noticeable benefits.
Our shop includes a fine selection of glass made plugs. The glass used is a completely inorganic material which is created in the melting procedure of certain quartz crystals, chalk and oxides. This origin makes the plugs non-sensitive to environmental influences or chemicals. The even surface reduces a possible skin rubbing and inflicts a nice feeling while wearing.
When talking of stone made ear plugs there is clearly more to it than meets the eye. Stone as a completely organic resource is free of synthetic or chemical compounds. The material makes every item resistant to most external influences and invites you to stress its possibilities. The only main downside is the weight. In case of too much weight bearing, your earlobe might deform. Please don't wear stone ear plugs on a continuous basis or use them as an initial plug after stretching.
The size you aim for is totally up to you. There are still some simple rules for stretching that you should consider. At first you start with 1mm each step. If you made it up to a certain size you can go up to 2mm. This becomes important in terms of preventing ignition. Since piercings present themselves as interventions to the human body, it is advised to be optimally informed. Second, please only use stretchers and ear expanders that have been manufactured for that purpose.
A huge advantage of expanders is the possibility of dual use. After their service as stretching tools, they can be used as stylish fashion accessories. Whether designed straight expanders, a colourful spiral taper or wild buffalo expanders, at Flesh Tunnel Shop you can find anything of imagination. We are offering numerous sizes and multiple expanders materials. If you have never experienced an expander, simply try to imagine a classic creole in your pierced ear. Have a look at our product line and complete your next outfit with something fresh.
Piercing stretchers and ear expanders are the necessary tools you use for the stretching of your earlobes. There are two kinds of ear piercing stretchers: straight expanders and spiral tapers. The only difference between these two is their shape. Both have a very thin beginning (measured by their calibre) but increase in size over time. This allows painless ear stretching to all desired sizes. The growing pressure leads to minuscule chaps that enable the skin to widen. But please remember: It is important that you stretch your piercings gradually - the slower the better. Allow plenty of healing time between the single stretching steps and consider using aftercare piercing cosmetic products. It may occur that your earlobe is hurting or bleeding a little bit. This ok if it returns to normal after a short period of time. Our blog includes more information if you wish to get more educated on the issue. Happy stretching!
We would like to give you a short summary on the most important facts of earlobe stretching. At first you should be ok with the amount of time it takes to reach your goals. Anything else would risk the damage of your skin tissue. Especially if you stretch more than 1 or 2mm a moment, you risk negative long term effects. A fitting starting point is the time after taking a shower or bath. At this point the skin is really soft and flexible, facilitating the skin adaption. Please use a lube like Vaseline to support the stretching procedure.
In order to find the feeling of security one needs to start stretching, this is how the skin works: While stretching your skin, microscopic chaps appear. This effect is wanted and needed! So don't hesitate. These chaps are the reason your skin can be widened. You can compare the stretching procedure with the build-up of muscles. In order to let them grow, you have to hurt them. The growth implies the adaption of skin to new circumstances. Still there are some essential details to consider. In order to fabricate the best possible result you better widen your earlobe gradually. Take the time needed. Anything else won't bring the results wanted. If you put too much pressure on the chaps, the skin may spark a backlash with the emergence of scar tissue in order to prevent a further spreading.
The history of body modification and earlobe stretching in particular is long and fascinating. Besides others, the oldest and therefore most spectacular finding of this sort is "Ötzi", a mummy found 1991 in a glacier. He was a man that evidently lived about 5000 years ago and had widened earlobes of about 7-11millimeters. Many indigenous tribes and nations happened to celebrate a cult of the modified body. Some researchers believe women stretched their ears, nasal wings or lips in order to be safe from rivaling tribes that went out for rape. What started as self-devaluation became a beauty ideal for the men of the own tribe.
Today we can draw on various materials for our expanders and stretchers. Primitive races didn't have these options. The inhabitants of the Marshall Islands used rolled leaves of the Pandanus tree for example. The succulent leaves were so thick, they provided such a suitable tool at that time.
Besides a rich selection of colours and shapes, our expanders are available to buy in numerous materials. Listed below are the current materials we offer including individual advantages and disadvantages.
Acrylic is by far the most favoured material among the scene. Explanations can be found in the light structures of synthetics. That's why it is advised to start your stretching career with the help of acrylic expanders. The smooth surface lubricates every item. It also reduces the possibility of bacteria or filth to endure and can be designed in various ways. Summarizing Synthetics present themselves as quite diverse.
Silicone is a pretty flexible and long-lasting material. Silicone proved itself in cosmetic surgery, conveying the needed skin-friendliness of piercing jewellery. It is the only synthetically manufactured material that includes both anorganic and organic characteristics. Bacteria and contaminants can't cope with the surface area. The only "major" disadvantage is the shortened air supply inflicted by the slinkiness of silicone on skin. An attractive price-performance ratio makes acrylic expanders a reliable choice.
Surgical steel 316L is the best-liked material in the whole piercing community. That is based on several advantages steel has to offer. It is highly stress-resistant, scratchproof and comes along with a nice metallic sparkle. From a hygienic point of view, surgical steel outperforms any other material. The medical background helped the material taking a strong hold in the community. It offers the smoothest surface, which leads to extra lubricated expander tools.
Compared to other materials, wood entails some clear advantages. The organic source makes every wooden stretcher relatively light. It's also desensitized towards a possible cooling, which clearly boosts your wearing comfort. Besides that, there is no interference of air circulation. The skin can easily breathe and therefore won't generate any bad smell or sebum.
A characteristic of wood is the individual appeal any piece and tree species has. Please consider any preferences in colour and pattern you have might not exactly match the posted product. We're offering many different types of trees to cover a wide range of taste. In order to prevent wooden items from drying out or becoming porous, it is advised to treat them with caring substances like Jojoba oil from time to time.
Horn as well as wood includes many of the advantages originating from its organic nature. Regardless of the fact the physical structure being more robust than wood, horn impresses with a breathable surface, temperature resistance and its many processing possibilities. The density makes the material heavier. A well-made combination of horn and wood can lead to some "one of a kind" pieces.
There must be a reason indigenous nations used bones for ages. Thinking of the needs of former times, a crucial factor like robustness surpasses both wood and horn. Still it doesn't do harm to your wearing comfort. Bone expanders keep their temperature. Since the material is most breathable, there is no need to deal with bad smell. If you don't treat your bone made pieces appropriate, the risk of split-off can occur. The main reason is an over-exposure caused by weight.
In this section you can find piercing jewellery that helps you fake a stretched earlobe. It mostly consists of surgical steel with a stainless steel bridge as a retainer between two plates. These plates can vary by color, shape or material. On the one hand acrylic made plates are often kept in shiny colours and appeal classical. On the other hand fake ear plugs designed with a motive are always manufactured as a steel edition. In order to simplify your choice out of such a variety of fake ear plugs, we made a comfortable segmentation into classical fake plugs, fake expanders and fake plugs with motives or crystals. Our Aspiration is not only the full range of product choice but also the enjoyable; customer orientated shopping experience at Flesh Tunnel Shop.
The term "fake ear plug" (also called illusion plugs or illusion ear rings) conveys a contrary impression. And there's good reason for these feelings. This type of body piercing fits into a standard ear piercing but looks like a proper flesh ear tunnel - hence the illusion of stretched ears. Perfect news for you? We think so too. Fake ear plugs are stylish, easy to handle and a great alternative for people who don't want to stretch their earlobes, still enjoying the overall look. So in case work, parents or your relationship don't leave room for real flesh ear tunnels - this is the solution for you.
The only necessity to adopt this trend is a pierced earlobe. The bridge of a fake ear plug normally equals between 1mm and 1,2mm in diameter. Screw threads help connect the bridge with the plates. That makes it especially easy for anyone to put into his pierced earlobe. The plates usually have a size of 4mm to 12mm. Please mind the fact that the chosen plates better not top the size of your earlobes. This would reveal the illusion. The easy change of individually designed plates helps you combine your daily outfit with a new accessory.
Fake ear plugs are simply ear studs with an extraordinary shape or design. They emerged in the course of the recent piercing trend. It was made for people that liked the appeal of flesh tunnels or ear plugs but wouldn't stretch their earlobes.
The fake plug section includes several materials that help you combine your jewellery for new exciting modifications - all day, every day. Since the bridge is mostly of stainless steel, the customization possibilities are limited to the outer plates. These plates can be flat, curved or even fluorescent. Fake ear plugs that contain o-rings give your illusion the extra realness.
Synthetics like acrylic contain an advantage that makes it especially interesting for manufacturers to consider. The material can be produced in any imaginable colour and design. Whether flat or curved plates, the illusion is always perfect.
Titan based fake plugs seem to be exceptional. On the one hand titan appears a most robust material. On the other hand it is relatively light. Despite the standard bridges we offer, titan based fake plugs are fully alloyed by titan. Furthermore they are covered by an epoxy coating, making it even more resisting to external influences likes scratches.
Fake plugs manufactured of surgical steel 316L impress by their robust structure and metallic glance. Various colours and shapes represent the adaptability of steel and help you choose your perfect match. The smooth surface reduces the potential of static friction and skin irritation.
Whether trendy or classical, shiny or mature, the piercing world of Flesh Tunnel Shop provides you with an undreamt selection of piercing jewellery. Wherever you are pierced, we are able to satisfy any wish. If you prefer belly bars & rings, ball closure rings, labrets or barbells - with over 10,000 piercings of all shapes and colours - the piercing sky is the limit.
But not only the shape matters, also does the material. Classic piercings are made from surgical steel. You can also give some advanced materials like acrylic a try. When flexibility is a factor you value most PTFE or ETFE may be the materials of choice.
The term "piercing" has derived from the latin word "pertundere" and the french word "percier". These words describe the act of breaking through or cutting through a thing. You can recognize the term "piercing" communicates the idea behind quite clear.
The first verifiable usage of piercing jewellery took place 7.000 years ago. Indigenous people tried to symbolize their belonging to a certain tribe or their climbing to a new phase of maturity. Former cultures also communicated particular social statuses or included body modification into spiritual rituals.
Nowadays piercings are mostly included as traditional and spiritual ornamentations. The Ethiopian tribe of Mursi adores female members with plugged earlobes or massive wooden plates in their lower lips. Since it is considered a desirable beauty ideal among Mursi men, the chances of approval and affection rise the bigger the plugs become. Thailand is known for a festival that celebrates the gods. During happenings like the famous processions, Thais in hypnotic trance put massive branches and iron bars through their stretched cheeks, tongues or ears. This shows the significance piercings can have around the world. Become a part of it.
Most piercings are dedicated to a certain body location. While trying to present a complete list, we honestly confess that this might not happen. Nearly any location can suit a new type of piercing, making it impossible to cover everything imaginable.
Several other variations may also interest you. Whereas usual surface piercings are located at one place, a corset piercing for example places a textile band between different cut-off canals. These canals normally include ball closure rings that are needed to fixate the band. The connection over two or more rows creates a corset pattern.
The idea of play piercings focuses on temporary piercings, partly involved in sadomasochism or bondage. You can place weights on the attached needles or include chains for an erotic experience. These cases require a maximum amount of preparation and shouldn't be initially performed without the supervision of an expert.
The top spot definitely goes to the all-time favorite navel piercing. About every third piercing belongs to that category. Nose piercings and nose studs come close at position two with 19 percent. The following ranks include ear piercings with 13 percent, tongue and nipple piercings with nine percent as well as eyebrow piercings with eight percent and lip piercings with four percent. Surprisingly genital piercings only occur in two percent of the cases. Happily Flesh Tunnel Shop offers you the full range of piercing jewellery, whether it may be a classical banana or a fancy push-in ETFE labret.
Piercing jewellery includes an innumerable amount of distinct shapes. In order to value that complexity we'd like to present you all the relevant shapes and characteristic features you can discover at Flesh Tunnel Shop.
The body modification scene features numerous materials and styles. Whereas (fake) ear plugs, expanders and flesh tunnels incorporate many of these, piercings like labrets, barbells or bananas can't portrait that richness of materials.
The piercings from Flesh Tunnel Shop are largely manufactured of surgical steel 316L. The most liked material from the piercing scene is highly recommended for anybody interested in fair prices, a classical look and nonallergic substances. In addition titan as a precious resource comes along much more expensive. Titan benefits from its structure, making it possible to appear high-polished. Various synthetics like PTFE or ETFE enable further applications. Also known as "bioflex", these piercings are highly flexible and flexile. Discover our full range of FTS piercings and visit our blog for more information.
For everyone that is absolutely not into ear plugs and flesh tunnels or even fake plugs and fashion expanders, we gladly offer a wide range of earrings from classical to trendy. You can choose between hanging earrings and ear studs that are available in stainless steel, silver, horn or wood.
If you consider trying out items from our rich selection, you better bring some time to select. Whether fine ear studs, flashy creoles or basic earrings - the spectrum of different colours, sizes, shapes, materials and designs leads to an enormous amount of combinations. That choice invites you to find the ear jewellery that fits your outfits - regardless of the occasion you may find yourself into.
Earrings are the most favoured and most spread piercings that you will find throughout many cultures. That being the case, most people still don't recognize ear studs or earrings as piercings in a traditional sense. Classical ear piercings are normally pierced through the earlobe. Over the last ten years we happened to see a rise of cartilage and auricle piercings. In former times most earrings were (strictly) reserved for women. With the cultural change that came along with globalization and liberalization, it became custom for men to rock that part of the piercing scene also. And this generation of piercing lovers doesn't falls short of their spiritual forefathers.
Our earrings are high in quality and low in prices, making it a remarkable price/performance ratio for our customers. Order your earrings today and complete your style tomorrow.
Like the name already indicates, earrings are pieces of jewellery meant for your ears, rather your earlobes. Earrings are the unknown kings of the piercing world. This is the case because of the piercing guns used in former times. The earlobe piercing got "shot" by the pistol, not directly "pierced", so people wouldn't acknowledge it as a traditional piercing. Whether or not they do nowadays, the earring is one of the most favoured piercings around and here to stay.
Earlobe piercings are usually pierced by body piercers or jewelers. Starting in the 1960s, professionals often used piercing guns with a specific spring mechanism to shoot an ear piercing stud into the earlobe. Some piercers find it dangerous to use guns and address the problems of possible skin allergies or infections. They focus on specially designed hollow needles that can be sterilized completely.
The piercing procedure takes merely a few seconds and reminds pain wise the prick of a needle. In order to ease the first contact of skin and a piercing, body piercers use certain ear piercing studs that can be designed quite stylish. After the initial piercing session the stud remains unchanged in your earlobe for about six weeks. In this time please only use clean hands in order not to disturb the healing process. If everything is healed, you can start wearing classic earrings. The initial use of especially weighty earrings is not advised.
The history of earrings goes back several thousand years from now. The oldest findings can be backdated 7500 to 8200 years and happened to occur in Chifeng, a town of Inner Mongolia. The excavated pieces of jewellery got manufactured out of jade, which seems a spectacular thought, considering the modest possibilities of this time. Other important milestones of that progress included antique Egypt and ancient Rome.
In the 17th and 18th century, ear jewellery was considered quite precious and therefore only achievable to wear for the aristocracy and wealthy citizens. The classic shapes involved tears and pears. With the evolvement of the Biedermeier period, also middle-class people happened to get the chance of classy accessories in their everyday life. Especially in agrarian areas jewellery was incorporated to show rural opulence. Earrings were considered a typical accessory for women. Not until the French Revolution, earrings became relevant for many men. That trend continued till the midst of the 19th century. What seems interesting is the fact of earrings not only being a form of makeover. In the 17th century people believed of earrings as a cure against eye complaint.
Usually earrings can be manufactured out of various materials. In order to simplify your choice, we focused on the four main favorites the worlds of piercing and jewellery have to offer.
The fabrication of jewellery often includes 925 sterling silver. In detail it describes an alloy mixed of copper and silver. The number 925 indicates the fineness of silver in thousandth. Generally silver made jewellery is free of nickel and therefore suitable for allergy sufferers. The shiny surface enables an easy polish, helping you to keep everything good looking.
Organics are here to stay. The rise of wood and others definitely underlines that evaluation. There is good reason for that. Earrings made of wood are easily applicable for allergy sufferers and satisfy with a light weight. The processing possibilities are diverse and enable the manufaturing of extraordinary items. Wooden patterns make every single product and therefore every outfit one of a kind.
At the moment horn seems the underdog of the body mod scene. But being not established doesn't mean it is completely new to the world. Thousands of years, indigenous people already included this material into their jewellery making. The organic origin makes it extremely skin friendly. Horn can be dyed, increasing the potential of customization. The shimmer of horn lets it stand out from the rest and will get you some interesting looks.
Earrings from Flesh Tunnel Shop are made from surgical steel 316L. The material is distinguished by its resistance and durability. Surgical steel is especially interesting for people with a possible allergy towards silver-bearing jewellery. All in all steel presents itself as a good alternative that has nearly the same glance but a completely different appeal. Surgical steel appears in medical environments, making it highly digestible and therefore a perfect piercing material.
You can often see white flesh tunnels and piercings that lack a fine glance and quickly lose their paint. A poor quality is especially sad in relation to the possibilities given. That's why we are highly excited to present you the world first of body piercing jewellery: SUPERNOVA CONCEPT. The idea of SNC combines extraordinary quality and style conscious collections. The surgical steel 316L is covered by a cadmium free IPC colour coating that meets all European health demands for nickel. The coating promises high-end quality and matches recent as well as future trends.
The uniform size of 1,2mm for every screw thread enables you to combine every ball with any straight barbell, circular barbell or other SNC component available. This leads to an easy application and comfortable usage for customers. Well chosen SWAROVSKI crystals make your SNC tunnels stand out in the crowd. The range of numerous crystal colours and five pastel choices help to match your individual style. The colour glance of the Pure White Collection easily exceeds the white you normally get to see. A super smooth surface makes you enjoy your Supernova pieces even more.
Flesh Tunnel Shop belongs to one of a few fortunate online shops where you can get hold of these beauties. Keep track of all the coming collections that will blow your mind and make your friends go mad.
