If you don’t already know that internally threaded jewelry is the best choice for your initial piercing you’ve possibly had your head buried in the sand or been on a long holiday to the moon. Big organizations like the Association of Professional Piercers (APP) and companies like Industrial Strength shout about it all the time because they take great pride in the quality of the body jewelry they promote and produce.
Having internally threaded jewelry inserted in a fresh piercing is much more comfortable due to the smooth surface compared to the ridged surface of externally threaded pieces. But this is not the only benefit: bacteria can live in the threading crevices which come in contact with the piercing if externally threaded jewelry is being used. New piercings are susceptible to irritation and infection which can cause a whole range of problems and using externally threaded jewelry unfortunately increases that risk.
We have always used the very best of titanium. But now we are also using the very best of threading too.
The comfort of your body jewelry should be high on your priority list, but your health should certainly be at the top. Using internally threaded jewelry with initial piercings greatly increases your chance of healing quickly and issue free. Internally threaded jewelry does cost a little more, but that is because it is more difficult to manufacture and when it really comes down to it, can you put a price on your health?
