    I'm looking for 2 internally threaded 10g balls for less than $20. They can be stainless or titanium. It looks like either preorder from bodyartforms, or order a cheapo barbell from painfulpleasures.

    Any sites offer just ends(like bodyartforms) that are of decent quality?

    I just checked my drawers here at work. I dont have anything I could send you. I might at home though. I'll check later and let you know.

    My current barbells are antatometal if that changes anything.

    The balls that came with my 10g barbells i wanted smaller so they put less pressure on the surrounding nipple. Unfortunately, with the smaller balls, the top ones have begun sinking into my nipples

    i called slave to the needle today and they said that they have them in steel, but they're either 10 or 15 dollars apiece. :\

    You should give Apocalypse or Laughing Buddha a call. Both have helped me with small pieces of jewelry in the past (and had reasonable prices).

    I can't imagine that any piercing shop still in business would have horrible jewelry. There's a place that I wouldn't want to have anything stuck in my body that I drive past every day. Think it'd be safe to get balls for the end of barbells there?

    lol, and I'm sure they wouldn't charge much either. :rolleyes:


    I ordered a couple cheap-o barbells from painfulpleasures. Let's just say that the build quality/fitment is less than spectacular. I got them in one size larger than what I was running(11/16"). The 11/16" seemed too short, so I figured I'd give them a shot before ordering another $70 worth of jewelry. The beads from the cheap bars won't fit the anatometal bars that I had, and the new bars seem a little too long. I don't know if that made any sense.

    At any rate, I'm gonna stick with the crappy jewelry for a couple weeks until I can afford some better quality big beads for the anatometal barbells. I think with bigger beads they'll do well

    How large (diameter) do you want the bar ends? Do you want them to have a recess for the bar (some jewelry has a countersink where the ball meets the bar)? I may have some extra ball ends [not sterile and without a recess] that I could send you. They are Body Circle pieces but I have interchanged them with Anatometal. I'll take a look at what I have tonight and let you know.
