PVD Gold 316L Surgical Steel straight barbell. Available in 1.2mm wire and in lengths 6mm and 8mm and has 3mm balls. The 1.6mm wire is available in 12mm and 14mm and has 5mm balls. These are all suitable the initial piercing jewellery.
Straight barbells are suitable for piercings where the openings are opposite from each other, because the wire will need to thread right through in a straight line. A curved barbell would be uncomfortable as it would be forcing the piercing to bend to the wrong shape.
We recommend using the 12mm and 14mm for piercings such as the tongue and nipple as these will comfortably sit on either side. The 6mm and 8mm is suitable for piercings such as: lobes, helix, forward helix and tragus.
If you have any uncertainties about what size you need we recommend asking a friend to help as they can see better, or popping into your local piercers to ask for some help. Alternatively we are happy to help anytime so just send us a message and we will get back to you!
This jewellery can be sterilised to prevent infection.
