Surface Weaving


In the surface weaving style of surface piercing, a single piece of jewelry passes in and out of the skin multiple times. This can be done with flexible jewelry such as nylon or Tygon, or with specially bent surface bars, often called 'MadMax bars' after Samppa's studio in Finland, where this technique was pioneered." explains Bmezine.

I love the surface weaves with specially bent surface bars (inflexible) but flexible jewelry such as teflon would be better for an area with lots of motion. The first and last surface weaves are probably something I would consider getting myself.

More photos after the jump.

  1. OUCH! That second picture looks painful as hell. I don't think I could ever go as far as something like these.
