Measuring Bananabells, Curved Barbells and Eyebrow Bars
The length of a bananabell is measured as the distance between the ball at either end. This relates to the distance between the holes in your piercing. The ‘gauge’ is the thickness of the bananabell, relating to the thickness of your piercing. Navel (belly) piercings are initially pierced at a standard 1.6mm (14ga) size but can also be stretched to larger gauges if you choose to do this.
