Labret Jewelry & Surface Barbell Piercing
Labret jewelry typically comes in various gauge sizes, with 16g (1.2mm) and 14g (1.6mm) being the most common options. The gauge size refers to the thickness of the jewelry shaft.
The shaft length of a labret is measured from the base (the flat back or disc) to the top (the decorative or removable end). Common shaft lengths range from 6mm (1/4 inch) to 12mm (1/2 inch . although shorter or longer options are available to accommodate different lip sizes and piercing depths .
Surface piercings often ranges from 16g (1.2mm) to 14g (1.6mm). The choice of gauge may depend on the location of the piercing and personal preference.
Bar length for surface piercings varies depending on the specific piercing and the area of the body. Common bar lengths range from 1/4 inch (6mm) to 1/2 inch (12mm). However, longer bars may be required for piercings with more significant tissue depth or for accommodating swelling during the healing process.
