All About Snug Piercings

 

2018 will be the year of the ear. Ear piercings are making a comeback, and expected to be trending throughout the year. With so much space on a single ear, everyone can get creative with what type of piercings they want. Amongst the various different types of piercings, the snug piercing is approaching in full gear.

 

 

WHAT IS A SNUG PIERCING?

Placed through the cartilage between the inner and outer ridge of the ear, the position of snug piercings varies for each person, but it is generally positioned at the middle of the ear, above the anti-tragus. Although a more difficult form of ear piercing, snug piercings are great in expanding your collection, and being creative while expressing your uniqueness. 

 

DOES IT HURT?

Unfortunately, because of the thick cartilage and sensitivity of the area, snug piercings are considered to be one of the more painful piercings. But, good news, everyone’s pain tolerance varies, and the higher your tolerance, the less it’s going to hurt.

 

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SNUG PIERCING?

Because snug piercings are more difficult, be sure to go to an experienced, professional piercer for the procedure. In order to prevent infections, you should care for and clean the area of the piercing daily. Your piercer may provide you with a cleaning solution and instructions, or you can use warm salt water to clean the area two to three times a day. Make sure you don’t over-clean your piercing, as that can irritate the area.

Make sure not to touch the piercing, especially with dirty hands. Be careful with anything that may come in contact with your piercing, such as clothing, earphones, bedding, and your phone.

Your piercing will take 6 to 12 months to heal. Also, it is recommended to wait until your piercing heals before switching jewelry.

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!
