Is infinite body jewelry high quality/a good company to support?

richardeffinivey answered:

Infinite Body Jewelry based in Vancouver, Canada (and not at all affiliated with Infinite Body Piercing in Philadelphia) isn’t a company I would use, support, or consider to be high quality.  

While the materials used for jewelry seem to meet the ASTM standards we want to see jewelry meeting, from what I’ve seen, Infinite Body’s jewelry seems to have inconsistent manufacturing issues that could be problematic for the safety of a piercing.  

This is a customer photo of some of his jewelry… the unpolished barbell ends and rough, potentially sharp edges could damage a piercing, and this negates the whole advantage of being internally threaded.  No bueno.image

Another huge issue is the fact that the owner uses his saliva to set stones in jewelry.  This means when a piercer sells and installs that piece, it is already contaminated - which makes it just as dirty and unclean as a piercer selling you a piece of jewelry that someone else has worn.  

The owner of the company even went so far as to post videos of him spitting on jewelry (accompanied by descriptions of exactly what he was doing), and when confronted by his customers and other members of the industry about it, he said that wasn’t the case at all.  

I’ve seen the owner physically threaten piercers I call friends, I’ve seen him call body piercers “trained monkeys”, and honestly, neither of those things bother me as much as jewelry that’s mechanically and biologically unsafe to wear in the body. 

To answer this very clearly, when it comes to Infinite Body Jewelry, I wouldn’t buy it, I wouldn’t sell it, and I wouldn’t consider a piercer who carries and uses that jewelry to be reputable.

Owning a Canadian studio, I really wish I could buy Canadian made jewelry and support a business “from home” but what Richard said is sadly true. I cannot endorse a company that associates with so much drama nor use jewelry of irregular quality or that is potentially contaminated.

McDonald’s has been forced to open its first ever restaurant with a turquoise coloured sign after city planners said the signature yellow sign would be too garish. Officials in Sedona, Arizona told the fast-food giant they were unable to open a restaurant with the trademark yellow logo.This is due to the city’s strict regulations which prevent buildings from ruining the picturesque view of the desert.

Hi! So, I was just browsing your blog (cause it's awesome) and happened on the post where you said you wouldn't be doing anymore heavy mods. If I were wanting to get my tongue split, could you refer to me someone who could do it as well as you could? Preferably in the Quebec province if you don't mind! Anyways, thanks! I hope you have a nice day. :)

Heya! There is nobody in the province of Quebec I would feel comfortable sending you to for a tongue split. there used to be some good artists in Montreal for that but, like me, they have moved on. Beware of hacks, they are everywhere nowaday!

If you send me a message off anon, I can refer you to some amazing artists a bit further away but who’s work is well worth it.

Hii, i have my out conch cut out into <3 and it's impossible to find <3 shaped tunnels to put into it. Do you sell any & do you ship to australia?

Hi! Your message is somewhat hard to read. From what I understand, You had your outer conches cut and sutured in the shape of a heart and you can’t find jewelry? I don’t have any jewelry of that kind and don,t have a specific idea of where to find any. You could ask the person who did them. Also, there are a lot of jewelry companies that make custom shaped jewelry from wood, stone, delrin and teflon, or even steel and titanium. look into that!

If any of my readers know of somewhere specific and wanna help, comment on this!

My friend and collegue @eric_lavalliere sent me these pretty pictures of his 1/2&#8221; labret that I did a while ago. He recently acquired a beautifull labradorite piece of jewelry from Relic Stoneworks
