We’re really not here to give our personal opinions on any body jewelry manufacturer. The Association of Professional Piercers has clearly defined standards for body jewelry than can be viewed on our website. 

The revised Minimum Standard for Jewelry for Initial Piercings is as follows:

  • Steel that is ASTM F138 compliant or ISO 5832-1 compliant
  • Steel that is ISO 10993-6, 10993-10, and/or 10993-11 compliant [Note: The EEC Nickel Directive is a regulation that requires a low rate of nickel release for all materials used for costume or fine jewelry, belt buckles, watches, or other metallic accessories with direct skin contact. It does not specify nor prove that a material is safe to wear in the body; therefore, compliance with this directive alone is not sufficient for meeting the APP initial jewelry standards.]
  • Titanium (Ti6Al4V ELI) that is ASTM F136 compliant or ISO 5832-3 compliant
  • Titanium that is ASTM F67 compliant
  • Solid 14 karat or higher nickel-free white or yellow gold
  • Solid nickel-free platinum alloy
  • Niobium (Nb)
  • Fused quartz glass, lead-free borosilicate or lead-free soda-lime glass
  • Polymers (plastics) as follows:
    • Tygon® Medical Surgical Tubing S-50HL or S-54HL
    • Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) that is ASTM F754 compliant
    • Any plastic material that is ISO 10993-610993-10 and/or 10993-11 compliant and/or meets the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) Class VI material classification.
  • All threaded or press-fit jewelry must have internal tapping (no threads on posts).
  • For body jewelry purposes, surfaces and ends must be smooth, free of nicks, scratches, burrs, polishing compounds and metals must have a consistent mirror finish.

Cultural differences.

There’s huge buildings with no windows
And streets with no curves
And inside you find little girls in suits
Running around with black balloons
