    MKay, I'd really like to add a glow in the dark bead to my collection. But, I'm told that I should only use jewlrey with... external ball threading... or something. I can't find anywhere that has glow in the dark beads w/ this type of threading, so I'm wondering if anyone knows of a website that sells this type of thing, and if buying body jewlery online is a good idea.

    Thanks.

    external threading is better jewlery. Basically it means the threads are on the ball, vs the threads being on the stud.

    It's higher quality, but not totally neccesary.

    I've got 4 piercings now, 2 are CBRs and the other are using internally threaded studs

    Internal is threaded on the ball and is typically higher quality. Looks like this:

    Externally threaded is cheaper and can irritate new piercings. Looks like this:

    step down external wont irritiate a new piercing. this argument has been going on for years in the piercing industry but theres no proof to say that one is better than the other. you can find externally threaded thats jsut as good quality. internal has just as many flaws as external does.
