Titanium Body Jewellery
Not only is titanium body jewellery comfortable to wear and incredibly lightweight, it is also less reactive to change in temperature as you might find with stainless steel. For those who easily feel discomfort with their piercings if they’re out in the cold then titanium is a preferred piercing material for their body modification. Titanium piercings are also easy to sterilize, making life easier for the piercer and the customer receiving their body modification. Titanium body jewellery can also be anodized to create a layer of coloured oxide on the surface of the piercings. Colours available are blue, purple, green and even rainbow. A cheaper gold colour can also be achieved with titanium by coating it in a film, creating a vibrant gold effect that is also inexpensive.
Since the EU Nickle Directive, titanium body jewellery has over taken stainless steel to become the most commonly used piercing material, certainly for new piercings if not in general. Long lasting and comfortable to wear, you can find titanium used in medical procedures as well as body modification, proving to you that this is a piercing material that you can really trust.
