Belly rings are appealing and charming items of attraction that can certainly give you a sexy and sensual look. No man can easily ignore you if you show it with finesse and style. The exquisiteness of belly rings is majorly because of their evident charisma, beauty, and artistic implication. Any other kind of body jewelry can certainly not beautify the refined contours of a woman as a belly ring.
Splendor of Belly Rings:
Belly rings can serve as attention-grabbing body jewelry that can perfectly highlight the beauty of your navel region. This flashy and trendy jewelry has bedazzled young women and teenage girls with its various sizes, styles, shapes, and colors. They like to wear and display it as proudly and prominently as possible.
Belly rings accentuate the gorgeousness of the body as much as earrings expose the prettiness of a face. When the glitter of an expensive metal combines with dazzling shine of a gemstone or crystal, the part of body that is usually not exposed in women becomes astonishingly sensuous. You cannot find any other better way besides belly rings to show off your slim and trim belly.
Choose the Best Ring:
As more and more people are wearing belly rings, artistic minds have gotten busy in designing exclusive pieces to keep people happy with their unique fashion statement. You can find a great variety of belly rings in different shapes including danglers and buttons. Belly rings with embossed gemstones can help flaunt your bold and sexy looks.
When you select a belly ring, you should opt for a material that is easy to handle, lightweight, and less prone to cause infections.
Stainless Steel: A large majority of people prefer to wear belly rings which are made of stainless steel. It is the best choice if you are wearing a belly ring for the first time because it is less likely to cause any irritation or allergic reaction to your body.
Titanium: You can also opt for titanium as your first belly ring. It is lighter yet stronger than stainless steel as well as free from other impure materials.
Bioplast: It is the best material for belly ring to date. Since bioplast is not a metal, your navel piercing is less likely to show allergic reactions or symptoms of infections.
If you are seeking to add some glamour and sparkle to your life, you can start with getting your belly pierced. A belly ring is a kind of jewelry that you can wear at all occasions. You just need to choose a ring that accentuates your style, elegance, and body contours. People, men or women, young or old, have accepted the brilliance of belly rings. So, flaunt your slim and slender figure with your own set of chic and trendy belly rings!
To continue with our previous post on materials used for body jewelry, we will now introduce plastics and glass.
Glass is a common piercing material which has been used for thousands of years. For example, earplugs made of glass have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs. If correctly shaped and manufactured, glass can be an functional material: comfortable to wear, tough, and safe for the body. However, cheaper glass beads that are not covered in a metal shell can easily break into shards. If you drop glass jewelry on the floor, you probably won’t be able to use it again. Also if you have a cheap bead in a tongue piercing and accidentally chew on it, it can break into tiny shards and cause lacerations. It is possible to sterilize glass in a steam-autoclave but the heat may cause cracking in cheaper products.
PTFE or Teflon was invented in 1938 and is can be refined for use in the medical industry for prolonged contact with skin. Refined PTFE can be made biocompatible. It is a lightweight plastic, it’s bendable, autoclaveable, not visible with X-Rays, not magnetic, and very stable. It is suited for implants and piercings, especially if some flexibility of the material is desired. PTFE is commonly used as a retainer.
Acrylic, sold as Plexiglas or any of a variety of names, is a transparent plastic, in piercing mostly used for plugs and tapers.Due to the material’s smoothness, it has been used for stretching. Many overenthusiastic wearers have damaged their holes with acrylic tapers.
It is not a good material for damaged or new piercings and can not be heat sterilized by autoclave as it can melt or discolor. It is also a fragile material and can easily crack, craze or shard if dropped. Jewelry made of acrylic has a tendency to collect body fluids and skin parts in tiny pores and fissures. The Association of Professional Piercers suggests that it may only be used for temporary wear in healed piercings.
Acrylic can be a chemical irritant or allergen, resulting in Acrylic monomer dermatitis from the decomposition of methyl methacrylate.
