Different Ear Piercings and Jewelry Choices
Since there are so many different ear piercing types there are also many different ear jewelry styles. Depending on the piercing, ear piercing jewelry includes rings, straight barbells, curved barbells, circular barbells, labret studs and other jewelry options.
Stretched earlobe piercings use special large gauge pieces such as ear plugs, flesh tunnels, earlets, crescents, spirals, headhunters, and more. It is very important with earlobe stretching to go slowly and only stretch only when your earlobe is recovered from the previous stretching. Also, make sure to stretch only one size at a time to prevent injuries and other problems.
It is important to always wear ear jewelry of the appropriate gauge; it has to be the same as the size of your piercing hole. This is why it’s important to always know the gauge of your piercing so you can choose the best ear jewelry.
