Since I began my body mod journey last year, I haven’t bought a lot of jewelry for my mods, but I HAVE spent a lot of time browsing websites and looking for what I would buy if I had money.
Body Art Forms is my favorite site so far to get all my jewelry needs. They’re easy to navigate, search and order from without looking like they’re straight outta 1995.
My first order from BAF was last month after my piercer had used too small of a ring to pierce my nose, and missed my sweet spot, putting my piercing slightly higher than desirable. Needless to say, my septum is still my favorite piercing so far and I’d only ever take it out to re-pierce it someday. Anyways, I’m off track. When I determined I needed a larger septum ring, I ordered from BAF because I felt most comfortable with the info they provided for each product, so I knew what I was getting.
My shipment came within the week and my nose ring looks great. Happy customer.
So naturally, I’m headed back to BAF for an early birthday gift to myself. I ordered these two items today, in hopes of getting them sometime at the end of next week.
These Single Flare Mint Colorfront Pyrex plugs are just what I’ve been craving. I really want a nice opalite or agate stone plug but I’m not at my goal size and not willing to invest a lot of money into something I’ll only wear for a few months, but I’m sick of my steel tunnels, so this was a happy medium. Plus, they’re single flared and safe for freshly stretched ears, so I won’t have to wait long after my 4g stretch to put them in (unlike all the double flare stone plugs)
I’m currently wearing a circular barbell in my septum and while I like how it looks, I was messing around with it and turned it all the way to one side, so that both balls were hidden in my nose, and I have to say – DANG I like how an infinity ring would look on me! So I ordered myself a Steel Segment Ring to replace the ol’ CB. I’ve been told that CBRs are a lot easier to put on for septum piercing, and just hide the ball inside your nose, but the space where the ball goes is so tiny, that 1) It will be difficult for me to get in my nose considering the awkward placement of my piercing and 2) I won’t be able to flip it up. I hide my septum for work and around my parents, and it would be too much hassle, so I thought the segment ring would be a great choice.
I’ll post pictures of my new jewelry as soon as it comes in and I can wear it!
