Forward Helix Size Guide

What Size do I Need


The most common gauge for a forward helix piercing is 16 gauge. The hoop diameter you need depends on your anatomy and personal preference. The most common hoop size for a forward helix piercing is 6mm.


The bar length you need will depend on your skin thickness, recommended lengths are usually 5mm or 6mm. For a short and snug fit, we recommend a 5mm length, if you have thicker ear or prefer to leave a bit of space either side then an 6mm may be better suited.

2. Add 1mm to snug fitting, and 2mm to loose fitting.


1.Insert an earring pin into your piercing.

2.Mark the area where the earring posts should fit on the post.

3. Measure the length of the removed material with a ruler.

4.Don't be afraid to go a bit longer so that you don’t exert too much pressure on your piercings.
