Most Monroe piercing jewelry are around 8.0mm to 10.0mm in length, but depending on how thick or thin your flesh is, your Monroe jewelry could be as short as 6.0mm and as long as 12.0mm.
Beside above, how do I know my gauge size?
Keeping this in consideration, can I put a 14g in a 16G piercing?
14g is bigger then 16g. The lower the number the bigger it gets. If your piercing is healed and you’ve had it for a while you might be able to. There’s not a huge difference between the two, but it might be enough to keep it from going in.
What is the smallest gauge for Monroe piercing?
Standard piercing sizes
|Piercing||Standard Gauge||Standard Length|
|Monroe Piercing||16G||1/4″ , 5/16″ and 3/8″|
|Nipple Piercing||14G||3/8″ , 1/2″, 9/16″|
|Tragus / Helix / Rook / Conch / Daith||16G , 18G||3/16″, 1/4″ , 5/16″ and 3/8″|
|Septum||14G (16G is also commonly used)||3/8″, 7/16″, 1/2″, and 5/8″|
14g is bigger. The lower the number, the bigger the needle or jewelry. … So buy 16g jewelry and a 14g needle, or 14g jewelry and a 12g needle.
The higher the number, the smaller the gauge. If your piercing is a 18 gauge then the 20 gauge would be slightly smaller.
