Titanium Jewellery

Titanium is a very strong metal, stronger than stainless steel and almost twice as light.

Titanium does not react with the body, so most people; even those with metal-sensitivities can wear Titanium. We use grade 23, which is implant grade; the same material the medical industry uses for joint replacements as well as pins and rods. No higher qualification exists.

Titanium can be coloured using a process called anodizing. Anodizing is a fast and simple electrical process that grows very thin transparent oxides on the surface of the reactive metals. There are no pigments or dyes, the Titanium surface makeup is altered therefore this colour cannot 'chip' or 'wear away'. It takes high voltage to produce the colours; different voltages give you different colours.

Tongue Splitting

Tongue bifurcation, or Tongue Splitting is a type of body modification in which the tongue is cut centrally from its tip, part of the way towards its base, forking at the end. Most who have had the procedure report that it enhances the pleasure of kissing. With a bit of practice, one learns to move the forks of the tongue independently.

Tongue bifurcation is, however, not necessarily a surgical procedure. Self modifiers often choose to achieve a split by gradually tightening nylon bindings inserted through an existing tongue piercing over a long period of time.

Triangle

A Triangle piercing is one of several forms of female genital piercing. The piercing passes from side to side, through the base of the clitoral hood tissue where it meets the inner labia and under the clitoris.

In addition to serving as adornment, it increases the intensity of sexual stimulation, particularly during sexual intercourse. The name is derived from the tissue where the labia meet the clitoral hood, which looks like a triangle when pinched. This is the only genital piercing that can stimulate the clitoris from behind it. It is said to be one of the more painful genital piercings due to it passing though so much tissue and nerves.

Twists

Twists are elaborate glass pieces of jewellery used in larger gauge stretched ear piercings.
