Please be warned that this guide is for piercings that are already healed(if you're still in the healing process, I recommend you consult with a professional.)

The following are some of the most common questions customers have when purchasing piercing jewelry:

  1. What type of jewelry is best for my piercing?
  2. What piercing jewelry should I buy?
  3. What size should I choose?
