I go through the steps of machining a barbell style piece from scratch. This project includes many operations typical of small scale machining on a lathe including facing, turning down, drilling, tapping, and polishing.”Link.

    I’m a big fan of body jewelry and tattoos. I have multiple piercings and my arms are sleeved and to be honest I’ve always wondered why body jewelry is so expensive. Your right too, the larger the size the more cash you better be prepared to drop on it. I know that titanium body jewelry is fairly priced but expensive. It’s worth it though especially is you are allergic to the other metals, mainly steel and sliver and let me tell you I’ve been through that scenario. I think the most expensive body jewelry I’ve seen is men’s titanium rings for ears and eyebrows. The prices on these tend to be a bit high. I wish I could make my own but I’m not that talented.
