Why do you use butterfly backs instead of screw backs \ etc?
Since the helix piercings I make are big, they need to be held firmly to the ear so they won't move on the ear or hang in weird angles.
The butterfly back has a range of motion on the post that goes into the ear, that makes it the best solution for this, especialy since everyone's ear width is different.
The other backs ( ball back, etc ) don't allow this range of motion on the post.
Is there an option to make the helix piercings with a 16g ( 1.2 mm ) post?
Of course : )
In default, I make the earrings with a 19g ( 0.9 mm ) post, but if you're interested I can always make it with a 16g ( 1.2 mm ) post.
After you order a helix piercing from my shop, contact me through the contact page, and request a 16g post, and I'll make the earring as you request.
Is there an option to divide an order to a couple of payments?
