ITEM: PTFE Ear Plugs
TITLE: Lucky Diamond Rich (worlds most tattooed man)
MATERIALS: PTFE (Teflon)
NOTES: This year marks my 20th year designing and making custom PTFE (aka Teflon) body jewellery.
Back in 1998 I was one of a handful of makers who helped pioneer the use of PTFE for the body mod jewellery industry.
Due to it being one of the most intert materials available and ability to take a mirror polish, it is often the preferred material for not only body jewellery but also implants.
Initally I started making penile PTFE bead implants, then onto basic jewellery such as labrets, plugs and tunnels, but seeing its possibilities, I further explored more extreme items like deep chest bars, Transscrotal plugs etc... One of my most unusual commissions came from a very well known body mod artist, who rang me one day asking if I could make PTFE fake boobs implants!!! He then elaborated saying they were actually going to be implanted into a ladies leg that featured a 1950's pinup girl tattoo... she was after fake boob implants for her tattooed pinup girls boobs so it would give them a 3D effect!
Shown here are the biggest PTFE plugs I have made todate 65mm!
They were for a ear stretching project my good mate Lucky Diamond Rich was undertaking.
Over 2 years he naturally stretched up from 20mm to 65mm!
Since 1996 Lucky Diamond Rich has held the Guinness World Record for most tattooed man, with 99.9% of his body tattooed!
