People also ask, why you shouldn’t get an industrial piercing?
The industrial barbell gets easily entangled in hair, which may then pull against the jewelry. In cartilage piercings, it’s very easy to damage the skin, causing complications like hypertrophic scarring. For this reason, some opt for cartilage studs while their industrial piercing heals.
Are there different size industrial bars?
Because every ear is different, the room between the two piercing holes differs from person to person. … For small ears, there are also many industrial barbells available with a length of 35 to 32 mm. Those lengths are also often used for vertical industrial barbells. The standard thickness is just 1.6 mm.
Jewelry is measured through a gauge system (see chart below). The higher the gauge number the smaller the wire is. A standard “earring” is usually 20 gauge. Jewelry gauges/sizes can vary between manufacturers.
Gauges get larger with decreasing number (i.e. a size 00G is massive compared to a 20 gauge). with an 18 gauge. If you want it smaller, ask for a 20 or even 22 gauge when getting pierced.
14g jewelry is larger than 16g jewelry, but you might be able to fit it. … The size difference between the two is small, but if you go back and forth it would obviously be a stretch every time you wanted to wear the 14’s, since your ear would shrink back to a 16g while you had that jewelry in.
Most nose piercings are done at 18 gauge. … Occasionally, people choose to go down as small as 22 gauge, but if you didn’t intentionally downsize, then you most likely don’t wear such a thin gauge.
