Are you tired of having to screw on your piercings? Try out our threadless labrets




What are Threadless Labrets?

Threadless piercings are labrets that consist of two parts: a designed top that pushes seamlessly and conveniently into a post.  This is where they differ from traditional internally threaded and externally threaded labrets.  Say goodbye to fiddling with small gems and ball backs! Threadless piercings do not need to be screwed into their post.  

Why threadless labrets?

  • Customizable

  • Easy to put on and take off

  • Comfortable and lightweight

  • Multitude of styles to achieve any look 


What material are they made of?

  • Our threadless labrets are ideal even for sensitive skin because they are made of Implant Grade 23 Titanium making them hypoallergenic, nickel free and lightweight.  

  • We also carry 14K Gold options as well!



What can they be used for? 

  • Threadless labrets are suitable for cartilage piercings, lip piercings, nose piercings and can even be used as regular ear piercings. Given the wide selection of gauges (thicknesses), you can find the right size to fit your piercing. 

How To Insert & Remove:

  • Insert the post through the back of your piercing.  Then push the gem into the post until it is secure. 

  • To remove, twist and pull the gem with one hand to release it from the post while you pull the post backing with the other hand.  

  • We pre-bend the threadless tops for your convenience but feel feel to bend them more or less depending on the tightness you wish to achieve (see image below).
