There is such a diverse selection of body jewelry styles and kinds, but did you know one of the most important aspects of piercings is the gauge size of the piercing needle used? This will determine what jewelry you will be able to wear in your piercing.
Gauge refers to the thickness of the needle used for your piercing and of the body jewelry worn in it. Gauge numbers for body piercing typically range from 12 gauge to 24 gauge. A lower number means a thicker gauge. For example, an 18 gauge is slightly thicker than a 20 gauge. Gauge sizes of piercings depend mainly on the location of the piercing. The Association of Professional Piercers (APP) states that no thicker than a 14 gauge piercing may be done below the neck. This is to prevent the risk of a negative reaction or skin tearing.
For belly button piercings, the gauge generally used is a 14, so 14 gauge belly rings are very common. A 16 gauge is also gaining popularity, and you’ll find 16 gauge belly button rings here

14 gauge styles are not for belly button rings only! Other body jewelry for facial piercings are also available in 14 gauge sizes:
Tongue piercings are most commonly done using a 14 gauge, and sometimes a 12 gauge, but most fully healed tongue piercings can accommodate jewelry with either gauge. Piercers generally pierce tongues with jewelry with a longer post because some swelling will occur after the piercing. Once swelling subsides, it’s important to change to a shorter post so you do not cause any damage to your gums and teeth. Tongue rings
continue to become more and more popular for both men and women, so our selection is always increasing. Our vibrating tongue rings
are especially popular.
Facial piercings like a labret or Monroe
are usually a 14 gauge or 12 gauge. Like tongue piercings, a longer post will more than likely be used to accommodate for swelling. Ask your piercer when it can be replaced with jewelry with a short post. Lip piercings are also variable based on the placement, but generally lip jewelry is either 12 gauge or 14 gauge. For the eyebrow area, professional piercers will usually use either a 16 gauge or an 18 gauge so it’s easy to find lots of eyebrow ring styles.
Gauge sizes of ear piercings will vary based on both the method of the piercing and the location on the ear of the piercing. If you have your ears pierced with a piercing gun, the gauge is generally an 18 or 20. Ears pierced with a needle are usually anywhere from a 10 to an 18 gauge. The most important thing to do is ask your piercer what size gauge he or she will be using, especially if you are having tragus, anti-tragus, rook, daith or cartilage piercings done.
