Custom orders are items scattered throughout the site in their appropriate categories. They will ALWAYS be noted in the title with "CUSTOM ORDER". Basically you get a lot more control over the item you want and its top quality.  

Majority of custom orders are sent to the manufacturers weekly, but there are some companies that are placed every other week.

Custom order time frames are not chosen by Bodyartforms, but are given to us by each manufacturer on how long it will take them to complete our orders.  The time frame varies depending on the manufacturer and each custom ordered item will have the estimated time frame listed on the item page. All time frames are subject to change without notice. The time frames are on how long it takes the piece to be made and it does not include shipping time.

Your ENTIRE ORDER will be held until we receive all your items. If you want the other items to come before the custom ordered item then you need to PLACE A SEPERATE ORDER. Picking express or priority mail will not get your custom ordered item to you faster, it will only speed up the process AFTER we get your item and ship your order out. Once we receive a complete order, we will ship the order out within 24 hours.

Once an order has been placed with a manufacturer, we are UNABLE TO MAKE ANY CHANGES! Please double check your specs and that you order the correct size beforehand.

If you want to cancel, remove or change a custom order item there will be a 15% restocking fee on each item because we cannot stop the pieces from being made, nor can we return them to the manufacturer.

In our drop-down menus for adding to cart, we show the gauge of the item you are ordering, then the length/diameter, then the ball size if it has any:

Jewelry is measured through a gauge system (conversion chart below). The higher the gauge number the smaller the wire is. For reference, a standard "earring" is usually 20 gauge. Jewelry gauges can vary between manufacturers. There is no universal regulation on companies to make a standard size in body jewelry. This is because some jewelry is made outside of the USA and measured in millimeters. And in the USA jewelry is measured in inches.

Rings

Rings are an essential item that can be worn in many piercings. They come in various styles:
  • Captive bead rings - These use tension to hold a bead in place.
  • Clickers - These use a hinge to open and close the ring.
  • Segment rings - These have a "segment" that comes completely out of the jewelry similar to removing a bead. But it looks like a completely seamless piece of jewelry.
  • Seamless rings - These rings require bending to open & close.

Verified purchase 18g  2" long taper
An absolute necessity if you plan on ever putting in your jewelry on your own! This taper also has an highly reasonable price w/ it being Neometal and implant grade titanium. For aiding insertion this 2" taper would work for the majority of piercings, but if it's in a particularly awkward place or if you're stretching your piercing you might want to order the size up. I'd also suggest purchasing a hemostat(preferably brass-lined) to facilitate even easier insertions of jewelry.

This threadless taper isn't necessary to wear Neometal jewelry but will make your life 100% easier if you get one. The 2" is fine for jewelry changes, but you might want to get 2- 5/8" for tapering open a tight piercing.

Verified purchase 18g  2" long taper
This 2" Neometal Threadless Taper is the best body jewelry related purchase I have made. I bought this item in order to help reinsert my high nostril piercing jewelry. Without the use of this taper it is nigh impossible to do so myself. I was able to remove, clean, reinsert my post, and change ends in minutes with this taper. This process had previously taken me as long as a half hour. As someone with a lot of different ends for my threadless jewelry, this was entirely necessary. If you like to change ends or have a high regard for your piercing hygiene, then this taper is a must have in my opinion.
