How to size body jewellery

This is a rough Guide for the Sizing of body Jewellery for your piercings.

What are the common jewellery sizes for body piercings? As a general rule, one to two millimetres off the size of your initial jewellery will give you a good estimation.

Eyebrow piercing – usually 1.2mm or 1.6mm stem thickness by 6mm – 10mm in length

Ear lobes/rim piercings – if wearing ‘normal’ ear piercing jewellery usually 0.6mm – 1mm stem thickness, if wearing barbells or body rings without stretching usually 1.2mm – 1.6mm stem thickness, if you’ve stretched then you should know your size!
Ear lobe jewellery is usually 6mm – 8mm in length if it is a barbell or stud, ring sizes however vary greatly depending on the size of the lobe.

Tragus piercing – usually 1.2mm stem thickness (but occasionally 1.6mm thick) by 6mm – 8mm in length.
