When talking about body modification, one of the first things people think of are ear plugs. Plugs, which many people also call gauges, are some of the most prevalent alternative jewelry pieces we see every day. The style has gotten huge in several communities and aesthetic groups, from the music scene to goth couture to boho and naturalist circles. With so much diversity between people who wear these great pieces, there has to be a wide range of style options to choose from. That’s where we come in.
Disappointed in your local shops’ limited selections? Unable to find a set of earplugs that fits your style and your budget? We’ve heard it before – we’ve been there ourselves. That’s exactly why King’s Body Jewelry was founded in the first place. Our goal is and has always been to provide the community with a wide selection of high quality, affordable pieces. Because there’s no point in stretching your ears if you can’t show them off.
At King’s you’ll find just about everything. We have hundreds of plus in a huge range of styles, made from all materials, from acrylic to steel to organics like bone, glass, and stone. Whether you already have an idea of what you’re looking for or are browsing around to find something that catches your eye, if you can’t find it at King’s you won’t find it anywhere.
We carry the full range of gauging sizes, too. If you’re just starting out, we have 14 gauge plugs to ease you into a wider stretch. On the other end of the spectrum, if you’ve been wearing ear plugs for a long time and still looking for something more, we carry plugs as large as 4 inches. We’ve got steel and acrylic stretcher kits, with or without tapers, to help you safely work up to whatever size pieces you want to wear, and hundreds of unique styles to flaunt once you get there.
First are the more ‘standard’ pieces, made of acrylic or metal. These are the kinds of plugs you’re probably used to seeing out on the street. All together we’ve got over 400 steel and acrylic plugs and tunnels to choose from, making these two categories our most popular by far. They come in all styles, from the classic sleek and simple Black Acrylic Double Flare Plugs (10 gauge - 2 inch) that are wildly popular with just about every group of body modifiers to more unique designs. There are graphic styles such as superhero prints or funny phrases, or bold patterns like the one on the beautiful pastel Blue Flower Blossom Plugs (2 gauge - 1 inch). Then come more unusual looks like floating cutouts in tunnels and even teardrop shaped eyelets. Some pieces are quite simple, like the Dark Blue Acrylic Double Flare Plugs (6 gauge - 2 inch), while others, like the Brass Ornate Plugs (0 gauge - 5/8 inch), are extremely intricate. And for an especially unique look, you can wear one of our 3D styles. Plugs like the Black Daisy Plugs (6 gauge - 1 inch) are cut to expand out from your piercing, seeming to bloom right out of your ear. They are eye catching and unique – definitely a good fit for anyone who wants to make a statement.
We have more 3D plug designs made from organics like horn, bone, and wood as well. Because of their nature, organic materials yield beautiful carved plugs when expertly crafted. Our collection includes beautiful flowers that burst out of your piercings, unique carved faces like those on the Carved Buddha Face Plugs (2 gauge - 1 & 1/4 inch), realistic animals like the stunning Black ArengJackalope Plugs (7/16 inch - 1 inch), and other amazing works of art. Each piece is handcrafted, which means that no two organic 3D plugs are the same. They’re made just for you, 100% unique, and beautifully impressive. The wooden plugs and tunnels also come in a variety of shapes beyond the standard circular look. You can experiment with teardrops, triangles, squares, and several other unusual shapes to create a stunning image that will have people constantly asking where you got your plugs.
Beyond ear plugs, you’ll also find a wide selection of tapers, septum and nostril pieces, barbells, lip jewelry, and more at King’s. We put heavy focus on quality and variety in every category, so no matter what look you’re going for, you can find it here. If you are coming to us to find the tools needed to stretch your ears to a different gauge, you should also browse through our Aftercare & Tools category. There you’ll find helpful tools to manage your jewelry, alongside oils, balms, lubricants, and sprays to help keep your piercings and your plugs clean and healthy.
