You can find a huge range of belly rings online but what if you need a 16 gauge belly ring instead of a 14 gauge?Â Most belly button piercings are done at 14ga (1.6mm) so it can be hard to find 16ga belly rings, especially in cute designs.Â 16ga is equivalent to 1.2mm and while this is very small for a navel piercing, many people choose to have a 16ga belly piercing. Fortunately we have some lovely 16ga belly rings at Body Jewellery Shop including cool colours and small, feminine bars.
16 Gauge Belly Bars
The most usual jewellery for belly button piercings is a bananabell, but these are usually 14ga and it can be hard to find a 16 gauge belly bar. Many shops now sell 16 gauge belly rings but one trick is to look for 16ga eyebrow bars. Eyebrow bars are often the same shame as belly bars and there is no reason you canâ€™t wear one in your belly button piercing. Just make sure that the bar is long enough and that the balls are positioned in a way that will be comfortable in your belly button.
16 Gauge Belly Rings
If you prefer the look of an actual ring, youâ€™re in luck because we have lots of cute 16 gauge belly rings on Body Jewellery Shop. There are three basic types of 16 gauge belly ring â€“ ball closure rings, circular barbells and body spirals. Each one is slightly different. Ball closure rings are rings that close with a captive bead, circular barbells are horseshoe-shaped and body spirals are spiral-shaped piercing bars. You can wear any of these types of belly ring but always remember to check that your new 16 gauge belly ring will be big enough â€“ there should be plenty of space around the piercing and your belly button should not feel pinched or tight. Other than that, the choice is yours!
