If you’re looking for a ring to wear in a heavy gauge piercing, circular barbells are a great option. Heavy gauge circular barbells are extremely versatile, affordable and come in a wide range of colours and materials. And unlike a heavy gauge BCR, they can be easily fitted without jewellery pliers.
Heavy gauge circular barbells can be worn in stretched ear piercings, stretched nipples, septums and PA piercings. They can fit in almost any stretched piercing â€“ just pick the diameter of circular barbell to fit your anatomy. Unlike a straight barbell, heavy gauge circular barbells allow lymph to move away from the stretching, so it is easier to keep your stretchings healthy. It is also important to think about weight when choosing heavy gauge piercing jewellery â€“ some large gauge pieces can be quite heavy. A metal circular barbell will weigh down slightly on your piercing and may stretch it, while lightweight options like acrylic are much lighter â€“ perfect if your ears stretch very easily. The best thing is that there are hundreds of different heavy gauge circular barbells to choose from!
Heavy Gauge UV Circular Barbells
Heavy gauge UV circular barbells are a fantastic metal-free option. These large gauge circular barbells are very lightweight and have a nice soft, smooth feel. This means they wonâ€™t weigh down your stretchings or put pressure on any one part of the stretching â€“ this can lead to dangerous thinning of the outside of a stretching. Many UV circular barbells are also completely metal-free, so you wonâ€™t have to remove them if you have an X-ray or hospital stay.
However the best thing about heavy gauge UV circular barbells is the funky colours! UV materials give you a huge choice of bright colours that really show off your stretchings. They also glow under UV light and make a fantastic alternative to regular metal rings.
