Nose piercings are one of the most common body piercings in the world, so there’s no wonder why so much different terminology is used to describe the piercings and the jewelry that goes in them. With nostril piercings being so prevalent around the globe, there’s bound to be confusion at one time or another, but this post – and two subsequent posts that will be up in the next week – is your go-to guide for becoming an expert in all that is pierced noses.  Today’s post will focus on the ways to size nose rings in order to find the body jewelry that will best work with your own unique nose piercing. The next post will talk about materials that are used in our nose jewelry.

The gauge of body jewelry refers to the thickness of the item, which directly correlates to the needle size that is used to pierce you by your chosen piercing professional. Since there are so many different sized noses, there are also different gauge sizes of nose piercings.

The thickness of the item is extremely important to the fit of the item. Standard sizing for nose rings is normally a 20 gauge; this means the thickness of the portion that goes through the piercing is approximately .8 millimeters.  Nose piercings can also be done in a slightly larger 18 gauge (1 millimeter thickness).

22 Gauge   (.6mm)
Piercings done in India, the Middle East, or very select areas of the US, UK, Australia, or Europe may use the tiniest size: 22 gauge, which would normally be considered a specialty size that may need to be handcrafted by an artisan.

20 Gauge   (.8mm)
This is the smallest gauge that most body jewelry will come in, and it is used almost exclusively for nose piercings. You’ll find most styles and types in this average size gauge.

18 Gauge (1mm)
This is the gauge used for larger sizes nose piercings. Slightly larger than the 20 gauge, this size will still provide you with countless fashionable options.

Nipple jewelry has been used to show strength by guards of Roman Caesars, and some historians say that Victorian women would pierce their nipples and hang a chain on them. Regardless, nipple piercings are not only very elegant, but also rather titillating to the wearer. The smallest jewelry men should consider is a 14g. Any thinner might grow out or tear and leave a scar if played with too much. Women need slightly thicker jewelry because their nipples are not only larger, but also subject to abuse from bras, etc. Generally a 12g is sufficient. Also, you may want to consider barbells instead of nipple rings, since they put less pressure on your nipples and generally heal quickly.
