When it comes to body piercing jewelry, size matters. Gauge sizes are used to determine the thickness of the jewelry, and since everyone’s body is different, it’s important to choose the right gauge size for your piercing to ensure a comfortable fit and proper healing. Gauge sizes are measured using the Birmingham Gauge (also known as the Stubs Iron Wire Gauge), which assigns actual numerical values to the thickness of the metal wire that makes up the jewelry.

The most common gauge sizes for body piercing jewelry are 18G (1.0mm), 16G (1.2mm), 14G (1.6mm), 12G (2.0mm), and 10G (2.4mm), but there are also larger sizes available for those with stretched piercings. It’s important to note that gauge sizes can differ depending on the style of jewelry, so always check the manufacturer’s recommendations before making a purchase.

Choosing the right gauge size for your piercing is crucial for both comfort and safety. If the gauge size is too thin, the jewelry may be prone to breaking or stretching, and if it’s too thick, it can put unnecessary pressure on the piercing and cause discomfort or even damage. Always consult with a professional piercer to determine the right gauge size for your body and piercing location.
