Jewelry Quality

At Cactus Tattoo, we use only the highest quality of jewelry and guarantee all of our piercings and body jewelry. We use an implant grade 316LVM surgical steel or 6A14V titanium for all of piercings. Implant grade metals are meant to be worn in the body and are compatible with human skin.

We pierce with internally threaded (small threaded post on the ball that screws into the threaded hole inside of the post) jewelry. Internally threaded jewelry is the safest and most reliable jewelry to wear in your piercing. The ball/threaded end is less likely to fall off because the ends have more threading to stay secure. Although, you must always remember to double check to make sure your jewelry is screwed on tightly.

Externally threaded jewelry (threading on the bar) can be painful and irritating to the skin. When inserted, the threading on the jewelry goes directly through the skin which can cause pain and may damage or even tear the skin. Externally threaded jewelry also is generally made of a much lesser quality of metal, and therefore we do not suggest anyone to use it, even on a mature healed piercing.
