In a perfect world you would be able to walk into a store and check out the ear-piercing tunnels and make a buying decision, unfortunately, buying ear piercing tunnels any other place but online is just not reality for most people. Luckily, there are some tips that you can follow to be sure that you are making the right buying choice for your tunnels.
Tip #1 Start with a trusted source. Tunnels from sketchy sources result in cheap tunnels that are a disappointment. Use a trusted source!
Tip # 2 Size matters. Be sure that you shop for the tunnels that will fit your gauge now. The piercing size and the tunnel size should be a match! Some people try to stretch their ear lobes further by buying larger tunnels, but that is not the best way to gauge up. Tapers are the better option for that. Tunnels are largely for aesthetics.
Tip # 3 Up next, material. Once you have chosen your source and figured out your size it is time to decide which material is going to be best for your aesthetic. The right source will offer a range of options like metal, plastic, silicon and wood to choose from. Some tunnels are plain metal, wood, silicon or plastic while others are highly decorated, it all comes down to personal preference. There are some materials that are easier on the lobes than other that are better suited if it is a new piercing like plastic or silicon. For those that have had their piercing for a while and are more comfortable with it, metal or wood can be added to the range of options.
