body jewelry classics

In the early days of contemporary western body piercing, there wasn’t a great variety of colors and styles available in jewelry. In fact, in many instances, when new and interesting piercings were invented or modified, piercers had to get a bit crafty, creating new or custom body jewelry styles.

It may be just a hop, skip, and a jump away from 2015, but as we barrel head-on towards the future of body art, it never hurts to take time out to appreciate our roots. And so, without any further ado, here’s a little tribute to a few of our favorites: the classics.

316L Surgical Grade Stainless Steel
Ah, surgical steel. The modification industry wouldn’t be the same without it. This simple, high shine, and neutral-toned marvel is still going strong moving forward through the 2010s, and with very good reason. It’s the perfect combo of function and anti-fashion, making it the go-to accessory material for those with constantly changing looks, as well as those who haven’t moved a hair since 1998. It goes with everything, and sacrifices nothing, making it a body jewelry force to be reckoned with.

Blackline Anodized Titanium
Black titanium is a maverick metal too, essentially stainless steel’s darker, hotter cousin. Blending seamlessly with any style or look, it provides a little extra edge in the process. Is our goth phase still a phase if it’s lasting over a decade? Either way, we’re definitely into it.

Patterned Acrylic
And last but not least, who could forget, those fun and funky acrylic designs? Candy striping, colored glitter, cute little dice; all our fave 90s fare just wouldn’t be possible without the cool retro miracle of colorful acrylic.
