Importance of Upgrading

Our client, who had previously had her navel pierced but rejected due to inferior jewelry quality, came in and made the informed decision to upgrade to our implant grade titanium option.

There are many people who have severe reactions to jewelry with high concentrations of nickel, such as stainless or surgical steel – or especially the variety of mystery metals sold at malls and online. Reactions ranging from itching sensations to large and unsightly irritation bubbles to full on rejection from skin.

To avoid this, while we do offer implant grade stainless steel alternative, we primarily stock implant grade titanium (ASTM F – 136) – a 100% pure metal – safe for your skin. There is nothing your body can physically have a reaction to.

At CraigPokesU, we strive to provide you with not only quality service, but quality jewelry as well. Stop by the studio at 4818 Lee Highway in Arlington, Virginia and treat yourself to yours today!

Anondizing is Awesome!

Here at the CraigPokesU Studio, we not only give you the option to adorn your body with 100% safe, quality jewelry; we give you the option of free customization on certain products.

We house a special machine (Anondizer) which forms an oxide layer on the surface of quality jewelry through electricity. Changing the electrical voltage changes the thickness of this layer which causes the different shades, hues, and colors seen here. This process extends the decorative opportunites on certain quality metals we stock. The additional perk to anondization is that it forms a cleaner and more durable surface for the jewelry selected by removing microscopic debris through passivation.

Anondizing is a safe, quick, and beautiful process we are able to perform for you in house. Come create your own special and unique piece today at 4818 Lee Highway in Arlington, Virginia. Treat yourself to something beautiful AND good for your body!

TREAT YOUR BODY RIGHT! ALWAYS WEAR SAFE JEWELRY!

Jewelry_Comparison

A young lady recently stopped in to have her nostril jewelry changed. The photo on the left is what I removed from her nostril. Due to the fact that the ring was not completely closed, it was not going all the way through the piercing causing it to close without her knowledge.

To her surprise, after removing the old jewelry, she needed to have it re-pierced in order to insert the new jewelry.

The story does have a happy ending though! Look at the beautiful new white gold and cz jewelry she has courtesy of the folks at Body Gems!

PLEASE CHOOSE SAFE BODY JEWELRY!!!

Good_Bad_Jewelry

A young lady stopped in to tell me she had been pierced over a year ago at another shop and it has been “infected” 3 or 4 times since.
The picture on the left is the jewelry she had been wearing made of a mystery metal and painted black. The picture on the right is the beautiful and safe implant grade titanium navel curve from ANATOMETAL that she purchased to replace it with. Now she can enjoy her piercing for years to come.
PLEASE treat your body right and use only the best!!!!
