Who Is Forbidden?

Forbidden Body Jewelry is a top 100 seller on in the jewelry category and your premier online retailer for body piercing jewelry. Founded in 2013 on the principles of unmatched quality, customer service and style, FBJ is pleased to be your go-to resource for all of your body jewelry needs. Because of our commitment to excellence and an unsurpassed customer experience, we have quickly established ourselves as a leader in our industry.
Forbidden Body Jewelry was founded in Scottsdale, Arizona and is now headquartered in Urbandale, Iowa. Noting a distinct lack of options for high quality body jewelry backed by a trust-building customer experience, our founder Courtney Larsen saw a niche opportunity that spoke to her entrepreneurial passion and love of jewelry. In June 2013, she started her journey on; the company has since expanded to multiple online marketplaces including WalMart, Jet, Wish and Amazon UK and more.
