What is the difference between surgical stainless steel and titanium when it comes to belly button piercings? I need help? (:




Best Answer
To be honest, the term “surgical steel” is marketing hype used by those who, presumably, wish to attach a loaded word to make their product more impressive. The fact is, there is no such material as “surgical steel” It is a stainless steel much like the kind used to make hubcaps, sinks, cookware, flatware, and sinks.

Titanium has exceptional resistance to a broad range of acids, alkalis, natural waters and industrial chemicals. Titanium is considered a superior combination of high strength and low weight ratios when compared to steel.

Here's some similarities and differences to help you out!


Similarities
Titanium and stainless steel have many similarities. They look similar in color, and both are durable and will not corrode or tarnish. Both also look just as good as silver or gold when brushed and polished, and can have diamonds and other gem stones set in them.

Differences
One difference between titanium and stainless steel is that it is possible for some people to have an allergic reaction to stainless steel; its composition is slightly different than titanium. The other difference is the color; both are silvery metals, but titanium can be somewhat darker.
Cost
Titanium is more expensive than stainless steel; this is because the process of attaining titanium is more costly. A titanium ring could cost somewhere around $300, whereas stainless steel could cost about $20. The cost also depends on the diamonds or other gem stones you may decide to put into the metal.
