Standard ear piercings are usually pierced at 20g or 18g. Gauge sizes go up (or down, depending on how you look at it) in even numbers from there, so the next largest size from an 18g is 16g, then 14g, then 12g, and so on. When you get to 0g, the next size is 00g (pronounced “double zero gauge“).

In this manner, what is the smallest size ear gauge?
There are multiple sizes and types or designs of ear gauges. The sizes range from millimeter measurements to inch measurements. The smallest gauge, 20, measures 0.88 millimeters or 1/32 inch. The bigger the gauge, the smaller the numbers get.
Why do ear gauges stink?
The reason your ear gauges smell bad is because they’re sitting in your ear. Your skin sheds almost every hour on the hour and all of those dead skin cells are left sitting on the gauge. Thus the stinky smell. To prevent this, a strict cleaning regiment is needed.
The so-called “point of no return,” which is the size or gauge after which you will not be able to go back to original size, is a range between 0g and 4g for the majority. But, it’s important to note that this isn’t always the same for everyone.
