How piercing sizing works...simplified

Body jewellery is measured by both gauge (needle width/thickness) and post length, with different gauges and lengths being more suited to different types of piercings. The post length includes only the piercing post and not any balls or attachments.

Most piercings are performed using the standard sizes, however you can also request different gauges depending on the location and personal preference of the customer.

Below is a general guide of the standard sizing for various piercings, depending on an individuals anatomy there can be variations and it may be a case of trial and error to find your best fit. We recommend measuring a piece you're currently wearing to gain a rough idea prior to purchasing your new jewellery or ask your body piercer the size they used for the implant.
