The most sold an the most available piercing on our site, www.EvysSecrets.com, is made of surgical steel 316L.

Titanium G23 is mostly used to pierce. Titanium G23 doesn’t contain any nickel and is therefore ideal if you don’t want any irritations or inflammations.

We use grade 23, which is implant grade. No higher qualification exists.
Acrylic come in many forms and under many different names, like teflon, PTFE, silicone, resin, etc…
There is a lot of acrylic body jewelry and accessories available.
It’s inexpensive, versatile, very light and comes with a big variety of colors.
One of the problems with Acrylic, is that you cannot put it into the autoclave.
It’s also not good when it comes in contact with alcohol, so not so easy to keep an Acrylic piercing clean.
Also named Nylon, teflon, etc… are favored over Acrylic piercings, because they are autoclavable and flexible.

They are not highly recommended for piercings, but good for stretching “ears”.
