B” Would represent the inside “Diameter of the Ring in millimeters (mm)

Titanium Ball Closure Ring Uses:

Also known as Captive Ball Rings or Captive Beads Rings or BCR’s for short. Many professional piercers find Titanium Ball Closure Rings ideal for the following initial piercings.

Always use the appropriate size and thickness jewellery for any piercing.

  • Navel.
  • Ear Lobe.
  • Helix.
  • Forward Helix.
  • Inner Helix
  • Triple Forward Helix
  • Rook
  • Daith

  • Septum
  • Eyebrow
  • Nostril
  • Lip
  • Lower Lip
  • Frowney
  • Smiley
  • Tongue Web
  • Prince Albert
  • Reverse Prince Albert

If a the choice of jewellery is a little too short, it will likely look perfect when first installed in a fresh piercing, but over the next few hours the area will swell. If the jewellery is not long enough to allow for the swelling, it will put pressure on the piercing and become more irritated, and more swollen. This will not improve until a longer piece of jewellery is inserted into the piercing, or it is retired. Failure to relieve the pressure can result in pain, migration, rejection and often increases the likelihood of an infection occurring due to the increase of surface area of damaged and irritated tissue, and increase in pain usually leads the wearer to desire to touch the area more regularly (usually with unsanitary hands).

Surface Bars measurements

Surface Bar Uses:

surface bar ball size surface bar thickness surface bar length surface bar length

Designed to be superior in every way when compared with 45 degree angled surface bars or PTFE or long curved barbells when considering the success of a surface piercing. The short ‘feet’ on the surface bar allow for perfect depth within the skin and no pressure from the balls resting against the skin, combined with a 90 degree piercing means success rates should be extremely high when pierced correctly.

Always use the appropriate size and thickness jewellery for any piercing.

If the choice of jewellery is too long, there will be excess mechanical movement leading to irritation, sometimes tearing of the skin (especially if it is knocked – which is more likely due to longer jewellery being present) and can increase the likelihood of fluid build-ups and complications, along with migration or rejection, and will almost certainly delay healing.

It can therefore be difficult to choose the correct length of jewellery for some piercings, and this is where excellent communication with clients comes into the decision making process. Most piercers opt for a ‘safe’ length that is suitable for ‘most’ people with their anatomy, and always tell their clients – IF you are lucky enough not to swell, nip back in a few weeks (or when healed, depending upon the piercing) for a slightly shorter bar to reduce the excess mechanical movement leading to faster healing. Also IF you swell an unusual amount – more than we would expect you to – and you find your body has ‘filled’ the bar/ring, nip back to the studio as soon as possible for a longer piece of jewellery to relieve the pressure. It is not an exact science, but this method keeps everybody safe and healthy and ensures a good relationship between piercer and client for years to come – and many beautiful healthy healed piercings!

To maximise the chance of the piercing being successful and healing. Clients should be informed that all piercings ‘shrink’ as they heal, and as such many people will need their Body Jewellery downsizing at some point. When the body has relaxed and the fistula has started to shrink, clients will often see the jewellery poking up. This is not rejection! This is a sign to downsize the jewellery. Failure to downsize within a few weeks of noticing this can lead the jewellery to reject due to excess mechanical movement as the bar is now ill-fitting.

Always use the appropriate size and thickness jewellery for any piercing.
