People With Conch Piercing - What size jewellery do you wear?
What size jewellery do you wear? By that i mean the length of the bar not the thickness. And also what size bar did you have when you first got pierced? (Thats if you wear a barbell and not a ring).
I realise everyones different but i'm just curious to know what the average length size is what people wear.
Oh and do you prefer to wear a barbell with a little more length or wear it snug?

I was pierced with a 12x1.2mm barbell and now I wear a 10x4mm septum keeper and I reckon at most there's about 5mm actually inside my earGot: Left Ear: Lobe (19mm/5mm/1.6mm), 4xhelix, 5mm conch
Right Ear: Lobe (19mm/5mm/1.6mm), inner helix, orbital (Top)
Other: 4xtongue (2/2.4/3.2mm), septum

I'm at 12 gauge, and the length depends on the type of jewelry. I got the second one pierced with a curved barbell, since I find anything remotely long enough to accommodate swelling uncomfortable if it's straight.
CBR/CBB/anything else "round" - 1/2" (it's big enough to be slightly loose, but not too loose)
Curved barbells - 7/16" (big enough to allow the bottom to peek out below the rim of the ear)
Anything straight (plugs/barbells) - 5/16" (too much length on a straight piece of jewelry feels uncomfortable)

I pierced it with a 10mm, and I now wear an 8mm to allow for days when it plays up, so there is a small amount for manoever if a bump appears. It also allows room for cleaning with a cotton budHi I'm Jayne
