Piercing Jewelry

The art of body piercing has become very popular and trendy. Almost every part of the body can be pierced. Body piercing is a form of body art and personal fashion statement. It is becoming increasingly popular with teenagers over the world. In some cultures, body piercing is practiced due to religious or spiritual reasons. Ear piercing has been prevalent since very old times. Other outrageous forms of body piercing gained popularity in the gay BDSM subculture, the hippie culture and the punk culture.

Piercing jewelry is manufactured specifically for the purpose of a unique and attractive look. The process varies from multiple hoops up, around and inside the ear, or studs and rings sticking out of the tongue, eyebrow, nostril, belly button and lips. Earlier piercing jewelry consisted only of circular earrings. As body piercing gained popularity, a wide range of specially manufactured jewelry became available.

Materials used for piercing jewelry has evolved from traditional gold and silver to surgical steel, titanium, glass, plastic, wood, horn, amber, stone, bamboo, silicone, and even fossilized ivory, tusk, bones etc. most piercing shops use piercing jewelry that can be threaded internally. The ball ends of the jewelry screw into a bar. It is more expensive than externally threaded jewelry but since it has no sharp ends, it does not cut or irritate the skin. Externally threaded piercing jewelry has shafts at both ends of the bar to allow beads with receiving threads to be attached. Other types of barbells common in piercing jewelry are curved, surface and horseshoe.
Captive bead ring is a piercing jewelry.A bead or ball fits into the small opening in the circle of a ring. Other less popular types of piercing jewelry are claws, Prince's wand, spike and spiral
