Oh lord yeah, it makes a hellll of a difference in Stone. The quality and complexity of the pattern, how well the pattern matches, the level of polish, how likely it is to break, how close it is to the advertised size, how close the two plugs are in size to each other, etc etc.

Glass probably has the smallest gap between cheap and expensive jewelry in terms of quality, but you'll still notice some very obvious differences.

Yeah, I haven't had the best luck with the stone pieces I've had since I've stretched up to 4g. 10g was fine, but none of the stone pieces I've ordered in 4g have fit because the flares are too freaking big. (This doesn't include the opalite ones, I haven't tried them yet. Also I think opalite is technically a glass anyways?) I've always had great results with glass pretty good results with wood.

Yeah, Opalite is opalised glass. Wood is probably the one that has the most obvious differences in quality, simply because you can see and feel so much of the difference. Everything from the type and toxicity of the wood, quality of the carved or lasered patterns and the finish. Steel has a pretty wide range of quality as well, polish being the most noticeable, but a lot of it has to do with the metal content and how well put together it is.

Which is one of the reasons I avoid metal, because I don't feel like experimenting with how much my allergies have developed over the years. I know 100% I am allergic to nickel, I don't know if I've developed any other metal allergies and I don't feel like bothering with chancing it. Considering I rarely change my plugs anyways...meh. I'd change them more if I found more pretty single flares, but I haven't really. And I'm not wearing hanging styles to work because two-year-old-grabby-hands.

Well, if you ever go for new piercings or jewelry and want to try something other than glass, consider trying out titanium jewelry from either Anatometal or Industrial Strength. They're the best as far as metal jewelry goes and titanium sensitivities are incredibly rare in comparison to nickel sensitivities.

Also titanium weighs nothing and is incredibly strong in gauges as low as 20g so you can get incredibly thin walls on eyelets without worrying about them bending or denting ever if you drop them or squish them outside of your ears.

Also, I'd suggest never ever get a titanium captive bead or seamless ring in anything larger that 4g. I learned the hard way that they're practically impossible to set and unset due to the strength of the metal.

Sean Porter talks about the changes in how suspensions are done since he started, namely in how the artistry of the rigging itself has expanded and become the norm.

I shouldn't be. Plus I can't wear anything else while at work so I'd basically be wearing a barbell for the weekend and then switching back to this. Which will be fine when it's all healed, but probably wouldn't be good right now.

Girlfriend said she'd dump me if I got forearm tattoos then she said it'd be really trashy to get a tattoo saying "there is no god above us"

Knowing what I know of you, I assume you are telling us you have an appointment to get "there is no god above us" tattooed on your forearm?

I forget, what's on your back?  Because in an arc across the shoulders, that would work well...

I just have a box on my back, around the area where one of my kidneys is? I don't know where kidneys are.

Still undecided on what I'd want around it, I don't want just words, those are boring, thinking maybe a space scene, with the words as a negative space on the bottom or something. Still sort of just want it around my forearm boxed in black with the words as a negative. Maybe fading the box out some or doing a geometric thing on the edges. To hell with what my girlfriend thinks. She has a flower on her foot and is gonna lecture me on classiness
