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.




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. 



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.



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.

Finding Good Quality Jewelry for Your Store

If you want your jewelry to fly off the shelves, it’s integral that you find good quality pieces. It’s true that if you want quality, you will have to pay a little more. However, that problem can ultimately be solved by shopping for wholesale body jewelry. Wholesale jewelry means you can get good quality jewelry at lower prices. However, it is still good to be cautious. Wholesale jewelry does not always mean good quality. When you shop for jewelry to stock your stores, there are a few things you should check to examine the quality.


Type of Material

If you want your customers to be keep coming back, invest in jewelry made from good quality metals. The best metals for body jewelry include titanium, surgical stainless steel, gold, and sterling silver. Titanium is hypo-allergenic, so it is great for those who have metal allergies. Stainless steel is great for resisting stains, rust, and corrosion, not to mention that it is built to last. Your customers will be pleased if you invest in these kinds of materials.

 Signs to Look for When Examining Quality

Say you’ve just found a great jewelry piece to stock in your store. Before purchasing it in bulk, you will want to check several points on the piece to ensure that it is the quality your customers will want and appreciate.

Chains: Look for any bent, incomplete, or twisted chain links, and then give the chain a gentle tug to make sure it won’t easily break. Lay the chain on a flat surface and ensure that it lies flat.

Clasps: Check to make sure the clasp matches the chain in color, texture, and design. It should open properly and remain closed. Tug gently on it to make sure it won’t break away from the chain.

Earring Posts: If the earring posts are bent or bend easily, they probably aren’t sturdy enough to last, and your customers won’t be happy. Make sure that the posts are the proper thickness and the back fits tightly.

Plating: On any kind of jewelry with a plating, check to make sure the plating is in good condition. Look for any obvious flaws, and scratch at the finish gently with your fingernail to make sure it doesn’t easily scratch off.

These are just a few tips you can use when testing the quality of the jewelry you will stock in your store. Once you’ve found a good quality piece, order it in bulk from a wholesale jeweler and save.
