Body Piercing Tips : Measuring Body Jewelry

Body Piercing Tips : Measuring Body Jewelry


Hi, I’m Tristan McCauley from Lucky Seven
Tattoo. I’m here to tell you just a little bit about measuring body jewelry. There’s
a couple different kinds of jewelry, and I’m going to tell you which ones measure which
way. For a bar bell like this, you want to measure from the inside of the balls from
one side to the other. This one is 9/16 in length. For a captive bead ring, which is
this guy here, you want to measure from the inside of the ball from one side to the other.
This is 4/16. So same for La Breas with the bar bell. You want to measure from the end
of the ball to the bottom of the post. It’s the most effective way to figure out what
the length is. And the same goes for a belly jewel or a curved bar bell. You want to measure
from end to end from the inside of the ball to the other inside of the ball. When measuring
a gage on the other hand, you can use a gage wheel which is this guy here, and whichever
one it fits in the first is the gage it is. Like this one is a two gage. Another thing
you can do is convert from gages to millimeters. Or from, yeah from gages to millimeters. Say
for an eighteen gage you measure in inches what it is. Say for an eighteen gage it’s
.125 inches. You then multiply that by 3.14 or pi and you will get 40. You go from that,
you multiply that by 25.4. There are 25.4 millimeters in every inch. You can multiply
that and you get the product which is 1.02 millimeters. And that is how you measure body
jewelry.
