Welcome to The Tea. It's our weekly Thursday e-zine where we feature our favorite Body Candy influencers from around the world. We love that everyone's piercing journey is different... And we can't wait to tell the amazingly unique stories from our pierced/modified family!
If you'd like to be featured in an upcoming episode of The Tea, send us an email to email@example.com OR send a DM to the Body Candy Body Jewelry Instagram.
Today's influencer feature is Bee (IG @tinyscallywag) - here are some fun facts:
- @tinyscallywag is 26 years old (27 next month... Happy early birthday!)
- Has been getting tattoos and piercings for well over 10 years.
- Her friends and family call her "Bee" - like a honeybee
- Bee has about 30 piercings (give or take) right now, which means she goes through a lot of jewelry... Luckily, she's landed on us as her favorite body jewelry company
- Her current favorite piercing jewelry is a belly ring with her namesake - a honeybee! It's a rose gold, dangly belly ring adorned with a little bee that we think suits her quite well.
- Her other Body Candy favorites include natural stone plugs, fake blood halloween plugs, and an opal septum piercing - her newest addition!
Thirty (!) piercings, wow! Tinyscallywag definitely knows how to commit to the pierced and modified lifestyle... Which got us thinking - how easy is it to actually get up to thirty piercings. Would you be able to get multiple piercings during each piercing session? The simple answer is year - most piercers will allow you to get three (3) to four (4) piercings per session. Any more than that might be too much for your body to handle at once. But there are lots of factors you should consider before heading in to get multiple piercings. Which side of your body do you sleep on? Do you want to have ear piercings in both ears if you have to sleep on your back going forward? What about aftercare - are you good with keeping your piercing clean and stress free? Let's discuss the number of piercings you can get per visit, and why it's so important to think about all these other factors...

Now, as for @tinyscallywag's favorite jewelry... We're going to start with our unique, acrylic blood plugs! As Bee mentioned, spooky season certainly is coming up, and these make the most amazing conversation pieces. The "blood" inside swirls around as you move, making these an eye-catching way to up your spooky-season look this year. Next, let's talk about her absolute favorite piece, a rose gold bee belly button ring. We have lots of bee jewelry, including but not limited to Bee's favorite bee... Plus bee septum rings, bee nose rings, and bee nipple rings. Bee-inception! Lastly, we wanted to highlight Bee's latest addition - her new opal septum jewelry. She's gone with a simple, but stunning opal BCR. BCRs are amazing, underrated ways to emphasize your septum piercing and we love the way Bee has emphasized hers. Don't forget that there are literally HUNDREDS of different opal septum rings on our site - make sure you check out our opal love collection for inspo.
