Organic Wood Gauges

Organic materials are becoming extremely popular in all aspects of life. Wood Plugs are a stylish way to show off your natural side. Wooden plugs and tunnels have endless style options and they are a healthy option for stretched ears. Wood is a fantastic material for healed lobes because it allows the skin to breathe and it helps eliminates the odor that comes with stretching. Wood plugs do keep some upkeep, but it is worth it!

One of the best parts of wearing wood is the different designs that can be created using different colors and species of wood. Each set of plugs come with their own unique design and have different inlays. The wooden star plugs are a favorite because of their solid white star logo inlay. The contrast between the dark areng wood and white inlay make the stars pop, these will quickly become the focal point of your look!

#1. Finding the Right Piercer

Finding a piercer is going to be incredibly important and doing your research before the piercing is going to pay off later! The Industrial Piercing consists of two piercings in the upper ear or the cartilage. You might be wondering why it is so important to find a reputable piercer. Since the industrial piercing is two piercings connected by a straight barbell you will need to find a piercer who is experienced in this type of piercing. It is absolutely imperative that the angles of each piercing line up correctly. If the angles of the piercing are off, the barbell will put unnecessary pressure on the tissue of the ear, making for a longer healing process. Take a look at your piercer’s portfolio, they should have pictures of fresh and healed industrials they have performed.

Piercers have a unique education on the body, they are aware of the vessels, nerves, and tissues that compose the body. Understanding where to place a piercing can be vital in its longevity and success.

Piercing Addiction

Once you have one piercing it is most likely not your last! Most people are aware of the saying that someone with a few piercings or tattoo’s makes them want more, they’re addicting. “After conquering the anxiety to successfully receiving and healing that first body piercing, it becomes more exciting to choose the next one, the more exposure we have to a particular chosen event or stimuli, the less frightening or outrageous it seems because we slowly become desensitized” This was said by Stephanie Hutter Thomas, a professional body piercer and PhD student, studying the psychology of body art. There isn’t a sufficient study that people are psychologically dependent on body piercings, but people are drawn to the journey, the process, and the unique creativity that each piercing brings.
