Jewelry sizing is super important!

Jewelry tip of the day:

Jewelry sizing is like jeans sizing (or bra sizing!) Everyones anatomy is different, so we stock a variety of sizes for each piercing! Jewelry that is too snug or too big can not only be uncomfortable, but problematic.

Many studios try to cut costs by only stocking one size for multiple piercings, leaving most clients with incorrectly sized jewelry in their fresh piercing

 leading to a variety of healing issues.

Barbells that are too long can cause irritation from excessive movement, while pulling bacteria into the wound which can put you at a higher risk of infection. On the other hand, posts that are too short can imbed during swelling, causing pain and discomfort (and worse, but we’ll spare the bloody details).

Finding jewelry that fits you properly is what we’re here for!
