Silicone Plugs, Tunnels, and Gauges

Silicone plugs, tunnels, and gauges are a comfortable option for those with stretched ears and a material choice that is perfect for day to day wearing!

This material is most common for people with active lifestyles that swim, or do sports regularly because silicone tunnels don’t degrade as much as metals or other materials do if they’re worn constantly. Plus, as they are lightweight they don’t tend to pull on the ears during activity and can be really comfortable for wearing at night.

Our selection of silicone plugs, tunnels, and gauges for Ears

We stock a huge selection of silicone gauges and plugs in all shapes, sizes, and colours! Choose between super thin silicone tunnels that just focus on keeping your piercing in shape, to full plugs in a variety of patterns that you can show off!

The one thing to note with silicone plugs, ears should be almost entirely healed before you can start wearing them because they can promote bacteria growth during the healing process. Silicone plugs are completely fine for fully healed stretches but we don’t recommend whilst you’re stretching your ears.

Also, make sure to check out the wearable depth of your silicone plugs because different materials can be different depths, particularly when you’re getting to the larger sizes.

What shapes and colours do our silicone plugs, tunnels, and gauges come in?

Silicone is a very custom-friendly material, making it easy to shape and form into a variety of designs.

What is a silicone plug?

A silicone plug is a piece of body jewelry inserted into stretched ears. They come in many shapes and sizes.

Are silicone plugs safe to wear?

Silicone plugs are generally safe to wear on healed ears. But you should not try to wear them if you have irritated lobes or have had a bad reaction to silicone materials before.

Are silicone tunnels bad for your ears?

Silicone tunnels are not bad for your ears so long as you have healed ears. It is a very lightweight and comfortable material for most people. If you have irritated lobes or have had any bad reactions to silicone before it should be avoided.

How to put in silicone plugs & tunnels

Silicone is a very flexible material and many people will find them easy to insert compared to other materials. Start by putting some jojoba oil on your ear lobe and on the plug or tunnel. Use a taper to stretch your lobe and push it though until it gets to the end. Then press the plug or tunnel towards the earlobe until it replaces the taper
