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.

Types of Nose Jewelry for you

316L Surgical Steel 3mm Clear Prong Star CZ Nose Bone Package

Have your Nose pierced but skeptical on which type of nose jewelry will work out for you?Well let me help you with that, below is a list of  different Nose jewelry that will best suit you.

Types of Nose Jewelry

Sadly a lot of people refer to any and all types of nose piercing jewelry as nose rings, which is inaccurate, and confusing.

 

Nose Rings

Ring – Recommended for fresh piercing until the healing is over. Circular barbells, loops or hoops, and Captive bead rings are considered “Nose Rings” and are the most popular for nose piercings.

 

Bones and Studs

Bones/Studs – Nose studs are however perhaps the most common type of nose piercing jewelry and is what immediately comes to the mind of many. Items described as “bones” or “pins” often do not have a conventional backing. It has a short stem with a bead at one end. Once it is inserted into the piercing, the skin tightens around it to hold the nose stud in.

 

Nostril Screw

Screw – a nostril screw is a style of jewelry from India and have become very popular in Western piercing. This is designed as a straight stem that turns at a right angle to form a C shaped curve. You literally screw it into your nose. When finding out about nose ring types, you want to take a good look at these as they don’t fall out as easily as the other types.
