What is Flesh Tunnels / Plugs?

PLUGS&TUNNELS

PLUGS&TUNNELS

A plug, in the context of body modification, is a short, cylindrical piece of jewelry commonly worn in larger-gauge body piercings. Modern western plugs are also called flesh tunnels. Because of their size — which is often substantially thicker than a standard metal earring — plugs can be made out of almost any material. Acrylic, glass, metal, wood, bone, stone, horn, glass, silicone and porcelain are all potential plug materials.

In order for a plug to stay put within a piercing, the ends of its cylindrical shape are often “flared out,” or the plug is fastened in place by O-rings. Combinations of these two methods may also be used.

A flesh tunnel is a hollow, tube-shaped variety of body piercing jewelry. It is usually used in stretched or scalpelled piercings. Flesh tunnels are made in smaller gauges. However, the smaller the gauge the smaller the effect to see through the plug becomes. A person may choose to wear flesh tunnels instead of flesh plugs because they weigh less; at higher gauges, the weight difference increases. Flesh tunnels may be worn with a captive bead ring or other object passed through them.

Flesh tunnels are fashioned from a broad range of materials, including surgical steel, titanium, Pyrex glass, silicone, acrylic glass, bone, horn, amber, bamboo, stone, and wood. Flesh tunnels, like flesh plugs, may feature a decorative inlay or semi-precious stones. Some flesh tunnels have flares to keep the jewelry from falling out. If there are no flares, grooves may be cut near the edges to allow rubber or silicone O-rings to hold the jewelry in place. The back of the flesh tunnel may also screw off. A flesh tunnel may also have an internally threaded backing, as externally threaded pieces can rip freshly stretched ears.

Hollywood Body Jewelry has more than 600 tunnels made of various materials. Check out our website!

How to find or become a piercing expert

How to find or become a piercing expert:

When you are first thinking of getting a piercing on your body, one will have many questions. One of the first questions to come to mind will be who and where can I find an experienced piercer?

You could always get a contact from one of your friends who has previously gotten pierced, but here’s a better way to find one:

The Association of Professional Piercers (APP ; https://safepiercing.org/)

As the website states, they guarantee safety. If a piercer wants to join the association, it will take time to apply. This ensures that their studio is safe and clean. They are California-based, and an international non-profit organization dedicated to the dissemination of vital health and safety information about body piercing to piercers, health care professionals, legislators, and the general public.

You can use the “find  a member” function to search for someone in your area who participates. Although the website allows you to look for members in your area, they recommend searching by Zip code. If you know who you’re looking for, enter the name, studio, or other keyword in the keyword field.

Also, you can get some tips for after care from the website and “becoming a piercer” yourself. You can get assistance by watching videos, the magazine, or by attending an apprenticeship. The apprenticeship is defined as a specific period of guided progress through the basic, intermediate and advanced levels of piercing training.
