"I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with the flesh tunnels and plugs I purchased last week. In particular Indian God Flesh Tunnel Vishnu TSTAT02 and Brass buddha set in triangle TSTAT05. I couldnt believe the quality of them for a start, the detail is amazing and exactly how it looks in the photo! Anyway, too many customers complain and when its justified none give praise so I wanted to buck the trend. Many thanks to all of you at ARKA. Ryan UK
