Tallman, NY (PRWEB) January 12, 2006
Many may think that this year's hot holiday must haves were a brand new Xbox 360 or iPod Nano but the often overlooked body jewelry industry thrived this holiday season. Sales of body jewelry are up over 100% Quarter 4 of 2005 over Quarter 4 of 2004 according to Brandon Hoffman, owner of STH body Jewelry. As more and more teens and young adults get piercings, the need to fill those holes increases. With high demand and prices as low as the $5-$15 range for a piece of high quality jewelry from online retailers such as http://www.sthbodyjewelry.com it is no wonder body jewelry is such a hot seller this year.
“When the salary of the average American is down and parents are looking for great holiday gifts for their youngsters, body jewelry has proven to be a real pleaser among the high school and college aged crowd. Teenage piercing is becoming increasingly popular and safe. This year's hot sellers have been belly rings, tongue rings and large gauge earrings,” said Brandon Hoffman, owner of http://www.sthbodyjewelry.com.
With major retailers such as Wal Mart and Target beginning to sell items such as belly rings in their jewelry department this Christmas season it is becoming apparent that piercing and body jewelry have broke out of the underground subculture from where it was born into mainstream society. http://www.sthbodyjewelry.com expects sales to continue to increase greatly through 2006.
