Materials Matter! A Brief Run-Through: METAL:
Metals are typically the most widely accepted materials to use for healing both fresh piercings and stretches. BodyMods carries high quality materials that won't strip, chip, or turn your piercings any weird colours with our piercing grade LVM surgical steel and titanium lines, designed with ultimate biocompatibility in mind. Metal also tends to have the most variety of options in terms of how they can be worn, with the choice of single flare, double flare, and machine head threading styles. ORGANICS:
When we say "organics" we're really referring to our stone, wood, horn, or bone materials. All ethically sourced and almost all handcarved as well! People often choose wood or stone plugs for a more breathable lightweight option, since the pores in wood and stone allow for much more airflow to your piercings. Wood tends to be the best option for those in need of jewellery that won't get too hot or cold because of the weather, whereas stone has various benefits associated with wearing certain crystals and stones that can make them the perfect fit! PLASTICS:
We mainly carry two different kinds of plastics, with our soft silicone and sturdier acrylic designs. Plastic tends to be one of the more lightweight options, especially with the flexible silicone that's super comfy to sleep in. It can also be a hypo-allergenic alternative for people with metal allergies, and can be good to wear in the winter since it won't absorb as much of the cold air as metals can.
