- Most piercing are 14 gauge which means that you will be shopping for a 14-gauge barbell. It is always best to stay with the piercing gauge you started with. Before you leave the piercing shop your technician should tell you want gauge you have. Since most piercings are done at 14g there is an abundance of this size available.
- Lengths vary and choosing the right length is based on your personal anatomy. Some people do well with 5/8-inch-long barbells while others need 7/8th inches.

You may have to experiment a bit to find the perfect length.
