The T-bar piercing was introduced to most of the piercing world by Tom Brazda, a man who has always been on of the smartest and most innovative body piercers in the world. Since then several other piercers have experimented with and have had success with these as well. So how crazy is it that the most recent picture in the T-bar piercing gallery is from 2005? Sure for some piercings, you can get similar results with microdermals, like this one I posted not too long ago. However, it’s not the same, nor are the jewelry options.
The two most common body parts to get T-bar piercings have always been the nipple and the tongue. Yet, that type of jewelry and piercing could be used for so much more as well. Obviously, the T-bar tongue, could prove extremely detrimental to a persons teeth, but the nipple T-bar is still a cool, technical and different piercing that is just as viable today. There is also ear lobes, genitals and other body parts that could have a whole range of different variations on standard piercings using this type of jewelry.
So piercers of the world, get creative, I would love to see some new T-bar pictures added to this old gallery in 2010.
For a few more shots of T-bar piercings, keep on keeping on.

The tools used for the T-bar piercing. Keep in mind these pics are probably close to , if not over 10 years old.
Are these key rings implant grade metal? Doubtful.
However it does show a different way to wear “jewelry” in a T-bar piercing.
Out of the pictures I posted this T-bar nipple seems to hold up the best by 2010 standards.
For a great interview with Tom shortly from back in the day that has a brief explanation of the tongue T-bar in this feature, go here.
