    Default Plugs that stay in!!??

    Hi my name is Richie and I have 5/8 plugs in both lobes ATM and I go to punk shows often and I tend to come home without my plugs so I was wondering if there are any that have abnormally large flares (preferably threaded) to keep them in? What are they called and where is the best place to purchase them? Thanks guys and girls in advance for any assistance

    Look at stone on bodyartforms.com or get some custom glass made by Bill at FrozenFire on Etsy.

    As for threaded I'm not sure - have you looked anywhere?

    Have you tried silicone eyelets? I've never managed to lose one.

    Wow, thanks for all the quick replies! I've looked around online / in shops and I've noticed that the stone plugs tend to have larger flares than the glass or steel but,that's not exactly what I'm looking for the reason I'm asking about threaded is because I want something that cannot be put in or taken out by simply pushing them over the flares like normal plugs. I haven't seen any like that so I'm curious as to if there are any that even exist that are readily available to the average consumer rather than having them custom made. Thanks again everyone!

    Yes there are many screw-on plugs & tunnels around, where are you looking?

    Basic steel ones here https://www.bodyjewelleryshop.com/on...el_3385257.cfm

    Try the shop on this site, crazyfactory, pierced & modified, fleshtunnel, bodyartforms, steelnavel ... etc etc.

    Yes I got that, I meant where have you looked so far but not found them?

    Actually since it's for concerts I'd recommend silicone earskins/tunnels

    Ooh sorry I misread haha, I've looked around at different mall kiosks, tattoo/piercing parlors, scrolled through a bunch of online retailers and I've only seen the ones with one larger flare on the front and a smaller one on the back so they can be removed ya know? never seen anything like what I'm talking about. Am I describing it weird? In my head it's perfect haha but it seems like it's difficult for others to grasp The concept. I'm also not very into the silicone plugs to be honest.
