New Titanium Push Fit ends for Bioflex Internal Labrets now available.
We are always on the lookout for new and unusual body jewellery designs and so we were thrilled to find these brightly coloured Titanium ends that push into our Bioflex Internal Labret studs. They feature either stars, hearts, flowers, crosses, crescent moons, balls and cones in a variety of vibrant colours.
So what is Bioflex and why should I wear it in my piercings?
Well Bioflex is a fantastic material to wear in piercings because it is biocompatible and contains no metal at all so is fantastic for initial and fully healed piercings, here are just a few of the reasons that you should consider Bioflex Body Jewellery.
- Bioflex is hypoallergenic and therefore ideal for people with sensitive skin.
- Bioflex adjusts to the body temperature of the wearer and is not affected by ouside temperatures.
- Due to the flexible nature of Bioflex it is extremelly comfortable to wear in piercings, it is also very light in weight and so it wont pull or irritate piercings as long as the correct size jewelry is worn of course.
- The surface of the Bioflex is non stick and so less likely to gather any bacteria or dirt which may infect the piercing.
- Because there is no metal content (and therefore no nickel) there is no risk of an allergic reaction for people that suffer from nickel allergies.
- Bioflex can be autoclaved, like metal jewellery making it safe for use in ne piercings.
- Bioflex can be combined with other materials such as Surgical Steel, Titanium, Gold Plate and Black PVD to give countless variations and combinations of body jewelry.
What is an internal labret?
Basically there are 2 types of thread available on labrets, External and Internal.
- Externally threaded labrets have the thread on the labret itself and a hole in the ball or attachment that screws on to the labret.
- Internal labrets have a hole in the labret itself and the attachments have a post that either screws or pushes (as in the case of these Titanium labret ends) into the labret stud.
A lot of people prefer internal threading on their body jewelery because the entire piece is smooth and there is no exposed thread to snag on the piercing and it will not get damaged by the insertion of the piece.
So how do these work?
The Titanium ends are removed from the labret by gently pulling and twisting, the clear labret stud can then be fitted into the piercing from the back so that the flat disc sits flush against the skin, the end can then be pushed back in place. This means that the ends can be swapped and changed without removing the entire labret from the piercing.
What size do I need
This is a whole other topic! Please have a look at our other blog post here which should help. If you have any questions please do just ask, we are here to help in any way that we can.
These studs are available in 1mm (18 gauge), 1.2mm (16 gauge) and 1.6mm (14 gauge) and lengths 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm so you really do need to check that you order the correct size to fit your piercing correctly.
Where can I wear them?
The most common use of these labret studs would be in lip, Madonna or labret piercings and also ear piercings. They look fantastic in lobe piercings, especially if you have multiple lobe piercings (I personally love the moon and star combination!), they also look stunning in tragus piercings.
