    TITANIUM

    Titanium became one of the most favourite materials of professional piercers. It´s, at the same time , very strong and very light; it is able to resist to body acids and fluids. Thanks to its properties, this material is able to avoid all types of tissue and bone allergies. For these reason it is widely used for permanent surgical transplants. CULT BODY ART only uses titanium grade 2 and 23 (Ti6AL 4V Eli) and suggests its use to perforate. We fulfil the European Nickel Directive.  


    ACERO

    CULT BODY ART uses 316LVM – ASTFM F138-97 surgical steel, the same that has been used in surgical implantation for more than 20 years. The 316LVM steel is melted in an oxygen free atmosphere, thanks to it, the quantity of carbon is highly reduced and, at the same time, the material turns out to be free of toxic elements that could contaminate the jewels surface. The surgical steel of CULT BODY ART fulfil with the European Nickel Directive and overpass it.
