3-Helix Piercing (or cartilage)

1-Piercing Lobe

Diameters of the bars (in mm) to the earlobe

This measurement determines the thickness of the rod (and thus its screwing).

For piercing the ear lobe , the three types of bars exist are 0.8mm rod which has no screw and 1.2mm rod with screw and 1,6mm bars with screws.

For the diameter of your bar (or screwing), measure the thickness of the bar as follows:

It is important to distinguish the two types of bars that can be put in the ear lobe: the bar without thread (0.8mm) and the bars with a screw and therefore a screw (1.2mm and 1.6mm).

0.8mm The bar is the most common size for the ear lobe is the bar thickness of conventional earrings: pendant earrings, ear rings steel buckles, earrings ‘hoop earrings… There are no screwing on this bar, she is usually closed with a clasp or clip (which has just put on the bar).

The earlobe is also entirely possible to wear jewelry with a thicker stem thickness as 1.2mm or 1.6mm. These jewels have the advantage of having one or two screw ends that can come and screw balls, spikes, shiny and create an original piercing jewelry.

The 1.2mm screw offers a wide selection of jewelry to screw the ear lobe: color of bright, colorful little balls or simply a discreet ear jewelery and quality. C-bo.fr offers a range of surgical steel ear loops without warranty allergy to the lobe ( discover the collection )

Due to its greater thickness bar, 1,6 mm offers a wide selection of jewelry and if you are looking for original piercing jewelry, which is seen and make the effect, choose a bar with a screw in 1, 6 mm: you can screw in all kinds of colorful balls, long spikes of titanium, a steel ring or a horseshoe. Because of its size, screwing 1.6 mm is often recommended for men.

Note that if you already own a bar at 1.2 mm, you can not screw it as balls or peaks in 1.2 mm (and vice versa). If you own a bar at 1.6 mm, you can not screw it as balls or spikes in 1.6mm (and vice versa).

Labrets length (in mm) for the lobe

The bar for the lobe piercing called labret, is characterized by a screw rod side and the other side with a circular platform (this is the part of the bar that is at the back of the lobe)
Measuring the length labret bar is from the base of the platform on the labret length OUT thread (mm):

Depending on how you were so bored or morphology, bar length labret a lobe piercing vary. The lengths of the most common bar for a lobe piercing ‘standard’ are between 6mm and 10mm. The bar length to choose for the lobe of a child will be predominantly between 6mm and 7mm while for adults, labret bar length will be between 8mm and 10mm.

To choose the right length piercing labret bar for your lobe piercing, you can simply measure a labret bar you already own. If your labret piercing bar current exceeds 1mm, choose a bar of a size less than 1mm from the bar that you already own. This also applies to a piercing bar too short: go for a slightly longer bar. In all cases, it is very important to have the right size bar so as not to compress the earlobe with a tight body piercing jewelry or having too long a bar, often unsightly and will promote clashes.

Length of the straight and curved bars bars (or barbell) for the tip (mm)

Less common for the earlobe, you can also wear the lobe piercing a curved bar or a straight bar.

Measuring a bar length of lobe piercing is done in the same way for a straight bar a curved bar.

This is NOT the length thread (mm):

Depending on how you were so bored or morphology, bar length (or barbell) a lobe piercing vary. The lengths of the most common rack for a lobe piercing “standard” are between 6mm and 10mm.

To choose the right length piercing bar for your lobe, you can simply measure a piercing bar you already own. If your current piercing bar exceeds 1mm, choose a bar of a size less than 1mm from the bar that you already own. This also applies to a piercing bar too short: go for a slightly longer or bar, measure the gap between the two piercing holes of your lobe to know the bar length to choose from.

Balls diameters (in mm) for the lobe

You’re probably wondering what size piercing ball choose to labret piercing? Or what ball diameter or shiny piercing choose for my lobe piercing?

The sizes of the most common balls for piercing lobe are between 3mm and 6mm. Of course, according to your body and how you have been drilled, the rendering of different sizes of piercing and brilliant balls will be very different on the ears.

The variety of balls sizes that start at lobe allow great freedom in the choice of body piercing jewelry that you can wear: piercing ball with bright, piercing ball swarovski crystal or shiny gold adorned with a pattern…

Diameters of peaks (or spike) to the tip

Here is an overview of sizes and diameters of peaks piercing the most current for the lobe piercing.

To choose the size of your peak (spike), measure the diameter of the base of Peak X peak height.

For example, the peak at a base diameter of 4 mm and a height of 12mm, so a peak diameter 4x12mm

Rings, spirals, horseshoe for the lobe

It is also possible to wear a ring, a spiral or a horseshoe to the piercing of the earlobe .

The measurement of these jewelry is done in the same way for all, it is to measure the diameter inside the ring from one side to the other, the inner diameter (in mm):

The measurement of the internal diameter is in mm. The internal diameter of a ring or spiral iron most common horse to the lobe are between 8mm and 12mm. The choice of the diameter depends on your body (like the thickness of the lobe), the way you have been pierced and also if you want a tight jewelry or rather for (especially enjoyed the horseshoe for example).

If you want a ring, horseshoe or spiral rather near the lobe and tight, opt for jewelery with an internal diameter of between 8mm and 10mm.
If you want a ring, horseshoe or spiral rather for, choose the inner diameter between 10mm and 12mm or 14mm.

2- Piercing Tragus

Diameters of the bars (in mm) to the tragus

This measurement determines the thickness of the rod (and thus its screwing).

For the tragus piercing , the bar has a 1.2mm screw, which is the standard screw for piercing

Measure the thickness of the bar as follows (in mm):

The 1.2mm screw allows you to wear discrete and elegant jewelry, while offering a wide selection of jewelry: you are looking for a little shiny, jewel clip with a pattern, a black steel microboule or luxury diamond ( see diamond piercing the tragus ) the bar diameter by 1.2 mm will allow all fantasies.

Note that if you already own a bar at 1.2 mm, you can not screw it as shiny balls or 1,2 mm (and vice versa).

Labrets length (in mm) to the tragus

The bar for piercing tragus called labret, is characterized by a screw rod side and the other side with a circular platform (this is the part of the bar that is at the back of the lobe)
Measuring the length labret bar is from the base of the platform on the labret length OUT thread (mm):

(note that for bioplast clip bar, that does not screw it comes to measuring the bar in the same way, from the top of the platform to the one end it the piercing bar)

Depending on how you were so bored or morphology, bar length labret a tragus piercing vary. The lengths of the most common rack for a tragus piercing “standard” are between 6mm and 10mm.

The length of the most common bar being 7mm.

 3- Piercing Helix (or cartilage)

Bar diameters (in mm) for the helix

This measurement determines the thickness of the rod (and thus its screwing).

For the piercing helix (or cartilage) , the bar has a 1.2mm screw, which is the standard screw for the piercing.
