What size or gauge jewelry do I need to get for my piercing? Body piercing is very individual. There is no set standard size for body jewelry because the jewelry is typically measured to fit the person wearing it. If you are unsure of what size you’d need, visit a local reputable piercer to have them confirm your measurements before purchasing anything online since we cannot accept returns. Nothings worse than investing in a nice piece of jewelry that doesn’t fit! What is thread-less jewelry and how does it work? Threadless jewelry (also known as push-pin jewelry) is a secure alternative to threaded barbells. It is a two part locking system, the barbell shaft itself is hollow while the ends that pair with this style have a small straight pin on the back of them that when bent, fit and lock inside the opening of the barbell. They simply push together to close, and pull apart to remove. All jewelry with pins come pre-bent from us to ensure a tight lock. How do I stretch my ears/piercing?
