Words from Peter Suluape

-“I've been tattooing since I was a young man, using traditional inks. Now, so many years later, I can honestly say that Suluape Black is the best black for traditional or general tattooing that I have ever used. It is a sacred thing to attach my family's name to a tool used in tatau, and it is an honor to have worked with Intenze to make Suluape Black a reality.”

- “I was very fortunate to work closely with Mario and the team at Intenze to create the perfect ink for tatau (traditional Samoan tattoo) and contemporary tribal tattoos...and this is it...I am very happy and extremely proud for Suluape Black to be a part of the Intenze family... I have been tattooing for more than ten years, with our traditional formula.

Tattoo ink has come a long way over time, and now, combining the old world with the new, Suluape Black by Intenze is by far the best ink in the industry for both traditional and modern tribal tattoos. Its quality is unsurpassed! Suluape Black by Intenze gives my work a unique radiance and because it's Intenze, I know that my clients are completely safe.”

Threading

 

What Are Threads?

 

Body Jewelry that has an end ball that screws on and off have threads.  This body jewelry includes straight barbells, curved (bent) barbells, circular barbells, and labret jewelry.  A thread is a spiral ridge that winds either internally or externally around the metal like that on a bolt or the inside of a nut.

 

What is the difference between Internal and External?

Externally threaded body jewelry has the thread on the end of the barbell, external to the shaft, and it is placed inside a threaded hole in the ball. When externally threaded jewelry is being passed through the piercing, the threads also pass through it, and then the ball is screwed into place.

 


 

 Externally Threaded Jewelry

 

Internally threaded body jewelry has a threaded hole inside the barbell, internal to the shaft and then an external thread protruding from the ball. When internally threaded jewelry is being passed through a piercing, a smooth barbell passes through the piercing, and then the ball is inserted and screwed into place.

 


 

Internally Threaded Jewelry

 

How to know which pieces of Jewelry Thread Together?

 

Each piece of jewelry has a thread pattern. Common thread patterns are found in the following table. Please note that these thread patterns are the most common for PAINFUL PLEASURES jewelry; however you must look at each piece of jewelry to determine what the actual thread pattern is.  A 0.9mm internally threaded ball or gem top will thread onto a 0.9mm internally threaded shaft. A 0.9mm internally threaded ball or gem will NOT thread onto a 0.8mm internally threaded shaft, make sense?

 

You also must be sure to look at not only the thread pattern but the gauge indicated.  10g through 00g that are Internally Threaded MAY have the same 2.0mm thread pattern. A 2.0mm Internally Counterbored ball meant for a 00g barbell will fit onto a 10g shaft; however the shape of the ball is meant for a 00g barbell. The same goes for all other gauges, so be cognizant when picking ends for your jewelry. 

 

If you are not sure if two pieces will fit together, check the threading pattern.  If a listing doesn’t have a threading pattern listed, email us at support@painfulpleasures.com, we’ll update the listing and let you know.

 

The following table has common thread patterns found on PainfulPleasures jewelry. This is just a guide, you should check each piece of jewelry before checking out!

Common Thread Patterns on Custom Jewelry

 

Unlike PainfulPleausures Non-Custom Jewelry, Custom Jewelry often has threading identified with a number-dash-number (#-#).  The first number identifies the size of the thread and the second number refers to the number of threads per inch.  The thread pattern Internal "000-120" fits with jewelry with an Internal 0.9mm thread pattern. The rest of the thread patterns below will only fit with other items with the same respective thread pattern (i.e. Internal "0-80" Threading will only fit with other jewelry with the same Internal "0-80" Threading). Please Note: Internal thread patterns may vary due to the custom manufacturer/machinist, please refer to the product description for actual thread patterns used.
 
Thread Pattern Thread Type Gauge
000-120 Internal Often 18g, 16g, Typically fits with Internal 0.9mm Jewelry
1.2mm Internal 14g
0-80 Internal Often 12g, 10g, 8g
2-56 Internal Often 6g, 4g
4-40 Internal Often 6g, 4g, 2g
8-32 Internal Often 0g, 00g, 11mm, 13mm
