Measuring Barbells

Barbells are measured in two places. The ‘gauge’ meaning the thickness of the bar, corresponds with the thickness of your piercing. The length of the barbell is measured as the distance in between the balls or threads at each end of the stem.

The gauge (thickness) of this Barbell shows 20mm on the Vernier Calipers measuring tool.

The internal diameter of this Barbell shows 4mm on the Vernier Calipers measuring tool.
