Are you considering on getting a new piercing, but not sure what size piercing do you want to get? Here are some tips for you.
The beauty of piercing is that you can get a piercing on pretty much anywhere and for any size.
Tongue piercing as an example, the common size for Tongue Piercing is 14 Gauge, but it is possible to get it with thicker sizes such as 12 Gauge, 10 Gauge, or even thicker. Although it is possible to get piercing in different sizes, you might want to consider going with the common size if you thinking about switching to fancy body jewelry after an initial piercing is healed.
Almost all fancy body jewelry are made in common sizes. 14 Gauge for Tongue Piercing, 18 or 20 Gauge for Nose Piercing, 14 Gauge for Navel Piercing (see the below chart for common sizes for different piercing). You will have a hard time finding different styles of jewelry if your piercing is in different size than common size, and you might want to consider the size when you get your new piercing next time.
