Measuring Flesh Tunnels and Flesh Plugs
Stretching jewellery, stretching tools and other large-gauge accessories (including flesh tunnels, flesh plugs, top hats, flesh tubes, eyelets, crescents, claws, tapers, spirals and eardrops) are measured at the section which sits inside the stretched piercing. This is usually the widest part of the piece of jewellery, although â€˜double flaredâ€™ jewellery is always measured at the inner-section of the piece, in between the two flares (explained below).
Flesh tunnels and other stretching jewellery is measured by the â€˜outside diameterâ€™ of the section that sits inside the piercing, often confused with the â€˜internal diameterâ€™. The â€˜internal diameterâ€™ is not the measurement taken for stretching jewellery because this would refer to the size of the inner â€˜holeâ€™ of a flesh tube or tunnel, which is not the correct measurement to take when fitting your piercing with the correct size.
