Belly Button (navel) Piercing

For navel piercings, 14 gauges (1.6 mm) are usually considered the norm. Because mostly available navel rings have a 14 gauges, it is not advisable to pierce the navel with either larger or smaller gauge as finding Body Jewelry that can fit the hole might become a challenge.

When it comes to the length of the piercing, it will depend on the size of the person being pierced. There are belly rings ranging from 5/16" (8mm) up to 5/8" (16mm). Usually, the most appropriate sizes are either 3/8" (9 - 10mm) or 7/16" (11mm) as most belly rings come in these sizes.

Eyebrow Piercing

16 or 18 gauges are the most common and recommended when it comes to initial eyebrow piercings. Though 14 gauges eyebrow piercings are increasing in popularity, the majority of eyebrow jewelry still has 16-18 gauges.

Nose (nostril) Piercing

Commonly, nose piercing is done in either 18 gauges or 20 gauges. Either of these sizes gives people a wide variety of very nice nose studs or nose screws to choose from. Never let a piercer use a gun when getting a nose piercing. There are still a few piercing shops that use 20 gauges gun but due to the trauma that this tool can inflict to the body, it is never recommended for nose piercing.

The range for tongue piercings can start from 14 up to 2 gauges due to a wide variety of barbells available. The length of barbell can vary based on the thickness of the tongue, but 3/4" (19mm) is usually a good size to give room for the expected swelling that occurs after the piercing. Once healed, 5/8" (16mm) is the most common length.
