Internally Threaded Body Jewelry – Best For Body Piercing!

Internally Threaded Body JewelryAccording to the Association of Professional Piercers, there are certain specific standards that must be followed by professional body piercing experts.

They insist that when threaded jewelry is used for first time piercings, it has to be internally threaded body jewelry – minimum  16 gauge. Getting body piercing done can be a really exciting experience because you are looking forward to showing off your navel, nose, or tongue piercing.

But did you know that wearing the right kind of jewelry can help you get your piercing done safely?

Internally threaded body jewelry is a little pricey because it is more expensive to manufacture. The more commonly found externally threaded body jewelry has the threads on the outer surface at the end of the body jewelry shaft and the ball at the recess. In internally threaded body jewelry, the ball has a threaded bar which fits into the shaft. This is more intricate to make. Good quality internally threaded jewelry has the thread glued to the ball or even better – inserted inside it to make it secure when you wear it! 🙂

Benefits Of Internally Threaded Body Jewelry

The biggest benefit of internally threaded body jewelry is safety. It does not harm the piercing wound and this is very important if you have body piercing in delicate places like your tongue, or a genital piercing where you definitely do not want any risk of infection.

The internally threaded barbell used in piercing is a lot more comfortable and minimizes the chances of bacterial infection. It is certainly stronger than other types of body jewelry because of the way it is made, with the threaded stem going all the way from the ball into the shaft. This makes the ball secure and stable.

Unlike external threading, you will not have the threading pass through your freshly made piercing.

Generally, internally threaded body jewelry is made of high quality materials and costs more than other jewelry but it is well worth it when you think of safety. There are plenty of jewelry options that you can try out at leisure. You can feel assured that your body piercing is protected by internally threaded body piercing jewelry and focus on enjoying your unique piercing!

Internally Threaded Labret Rings – Look More Attractive Safely!

Internally Threaded Labret RingsLabret piercing is very popular and the most common types of jewelry used at the time of piercing are either studs or rings. Internally threaded labret rings come highly recommended due to their various benefits.

Expert piercers advise that it is better to get a labret piercing with an internally threaded labret ring.

Internal threading means lesser chances of infection as the shaft of the barbell that passes through the piercing will not hurt the piercing. Moreover, it speeds up the healing process, helping you heal faster. Internally threaded body jewelry is especially suggested for piercing located in delicate places for this very reason. The internal threading makes the jewelry stronger and more secure, without the danger of the stud or ring falling off.

The extra price you might pay for this type of jewelry is worth the benefits that you would enjoy. Because of its intricate system, it is costlier to manufacture. The threading has to be precisely set in the right part of the labret ring or stud. External jewelry is widely available but it is not recommended for a new piercing as the new piercing can get infected as well as take longer to heal when the threading grazes the piercing.

With internally threaded labret rings on the other hand, it is only the smooth shaft that is inserted into the piercing after which the bead with the threaded bar is fit into the shaft, never coming into contact with the piercing directly. To make the internally threaded labret ring stronger, the thread is glued to the ball, extending inside the ball.

With so many choices available in internally threaded labret rings, you can now enjoy a safer and more attractive labret piercing! 😉
