    Question Auricle piercing

    I really wanna get my auricle pierced BUT I don't know what size jewellery to buy, so I was wondering if anyone knew the general size of an Auricle or helix piercing. Cheers x

    Surely your piercer will be supplying the initial jewellery, and as you probably won't be changing it for quite a while then you have plenty of time to figure out what size you'll need. Ask what gauge the piercer will use (probably 1.2mm) and ask them what length would be appropriate once it's healed.

    Its not too far off from the actual lobe so I can imagine whatever they use for the lobe, they would also use for the auricle. Ive had mine forever and its at a 16 gauge still cause of the jewelery Im using (long bar with a spider clip in). Im sure you could get it pierced at a 18/16/14 anywhere you go honestly.

    Hi there,
    I have an auricle and it was pierced at 1.2 mm/16ga. As insideout said though, your piercer will tell you what jewellry they'll use and stuff.
    Good luck
