Helix Size Guide
What Size do I Need?
The most common gauge for a helix piercing is 16 gauge, although some are done at 18 gauge instead. The hoop diameter you need depends on your anatomy and personal preference. If your piercing is closer to the edge of your ear, and you love the hoop to be snug, then a smaller diameter hoop will suit you.
The bar length you need will depend on your skin thickness and piercing location. Recommended lengths are usually 6mm or 8mm. For a short and snug fit, we recommend a 6mm length. If you have thicker cartilage or prefer to leave a bit of space either side, then an 8mm may be better suited.
Inner diameter for hoops (for piercings closer to edge of ear)
5mm - 7mm
Inner diameter for hoops (for a looser fit)
8mm - 10mm
Bar length for barbel/labret
6mm - 8mm
How to Measure Your Ear for a Perfect Fit
Although there are recommended helix sizes, you need to measure your own ear since everyone’s ear is different. Follow the instructions and find the size that is perfect for you.
- Use a ruler to measure the distance from the hole to the edge of your ear.
- Add 1 mm for a snug fit and 2 mm for a loose fit.
- Cut a small strip of paper, line it up with the bottom of the piercing hole, and mark where the edge of your nose is on the paper with a fine-tipped marker.
- Measure the marked portion against a ruler that is marked in millimeters to get the smallest inner diameter that you can comfortably wear.
- Add 1 mm for a snug fit and 2 mm for a loose fit.
