Jewelry Threading

....................

Most barbells have a ball that screws on or snaps into place. Rings do on have threading but Straight, Curved, Circular Barbells and Flatback styles do. It's important to check your jewelry balls daily as they can slowly loosen over time. During aftercare I always remind clients to brush their teeth and check their balls, EVERY day. If you don't you may lose your jewelry and your piercing. 

Internally Threaded

Iinternally threaded ends "screw in” to the jewelry post. The end of the jewelry that you insert into your piercing is smooth and is less likely to damage the delicate skin inside while inserting. This is one of the styles that is preferred by most professional piercers.

Threadless

Threadless ends "snap in" to the jewelry post rather than screw in (or on). The end of the jewelry that you insert into your piercing is smooth and is less likely to damage inside your piercing. This is one of the styles that is preferred by most professional piercers.

Externally Threaded

Externally threaded ends "screw on" to the jewelry post. The end of the jewelry that you insert into your piercing has jagged threads that shred and damage the skin inside your piercing whenever you insert it or remove it. This style is not suggested by most professional piercers.
