Fake Body Jewellery which is also called illusion body jewellery, are fashion jewellery pieces which imitate a real piece of body jewellery and look completely real, but do not require an actual body piercing. There are fake body jewellery pieces for almost all parts of the body, however we only carry those that are safe. For example: nose studs, lips rings and ear cuffs and for those with pierced ears we also have fake plugs and stretchers. Fake body jewellery is great because there are no holes... therefore no pain. Fake plugs and stretchers go into existing lobe piercings and look exactly like the real thing without the pain of stretching. This means you can get the look of a real piercing without the pain and you get to scare the pants off your parents. All our fake body jewellery is still made of the highest quality materials.

The importance of using high quality metals in your body jewellery
Surgical Grade Stainless Steel 316L
Improper selection of your body piercing jewellery materials can result in some very nasty irritations and allergic reactions as well as higher risk from bacterial infection. The most common cause of allergic reaction to stainless steel is the nickel content and oxidation (rust) in poorer quality steels. If you have inferior quality stainless steel you may notice a black/greenish staining of the area around the piercing, this is due to the oxidation process. Our stainless steel body jewellery is all crafted from the highest quality implant-grade surgical stainless steel 316L. This is one of only two metals that we use for initial body piercings.
I will go into this a little further for you so you can understand the importance of this and how it affects you. Stainless steel is an alloy, which is a composite of several different elements with steel (iron & carbon) being the main ingredient, but steel on its own will oxidise. Therefor other materials (elements) are added to increase the strength and add different properties to the metal. Here are some that you are most likely to find, chromium, nickel, molybdenum, manganese along with sulphur, silicone and phosphorus. These elements are added to provide the metal with it's oxidation resistant properties. The main issues with the metals used in piercings are the factors which allow it to harbour bacteria, oxidise, and cause irritation through allergic reactions. Nickel is the most common irritant or allergen, but is required along with chromium and molybdenum to provide corrosion resistance. The human body is an extremely aggressive environment for any metals, with high acidity, moisture, salts and lack of oxygen. We all know what happens to steel at the bottom of the ocean... Your body is a similar environment. Now we understand the what and why of stainless steel, we can move on to the importance of the implant-grade surgical portion. This means that the steel has a far superior resistance to corrosion due to a much lower carbon content (hence the L portion of the 316L rating) and a less pitted (polished) surface layer which also allows for proper Autoclave sterillisation. While there is still a small amount of nickel in this product (usually 10-15%) it is generally considered to be 99.9% bio-compatible and non-allergenic. Allergic reactions, when they occur are rarely due to the 316L stainless steel itself and can usually be attributed to other factors like chemicals from cleaning products or mechanical irritation (movement of the jewellery in the piercing itself) or inferior quality product that is NOT 316L. This can result in itching, redness, swelling and a clear discharge that is not lymph (white blood cells). If you have an aggressive reaction to nickel then please do not use 316L stainless steel in your piercings but instead opt for the titanium grade 23.
Titanium Grade 23
Titanium grade 23 is an alloy also known as Ti-6Al-4V ELI which is the elemental compound structure: 90% Titanium, 6% Aluminium and 4% Vanadium the ELI portion means extra low interstitial which simply means 'the most pure' making it the supremely suitable for implant and surgical use. This is the only other metal we use for initial body piercing. Titanium has superior resistance to corrosion and is widely regarded as one of the most bio-compatible metals. Titanium can also be anodised into many different colours providing you with beautiful, unique pieces of jewellery that are resistant and bio-compatible.
Other metals & materials
We offer a large range of materials for your body piercings when they have completely healed. These can be anything from glass, bone, wood and acrylics to precious and non-precious metals. Generally we recommend that if you wish to have metals you continue to use the higher grades that cause the least amount of irritations and infection possibilities. We recommend that you use only sterling silver, a minimum of 9ct gold, but preferably 18ct gold or higher, 999 niobium, G23 titanium and 316L stainless steel.
