    Default Jewellery size question

    Quick question, ok I know everyone's different so i'm looking for a rough size :p

    for my tragus piercing I'm planning on wearing a BCR however no idea what diameter to get, it's pierced at 1.2 and I tried holding up a 1.6x8mm BCR to it and I though it was to big so I'm not sure which size to go for :/

    For you guys that have your tragus done what sizes do you use?

    Well, I'm no expert but going for a 1.6 is going up a size. Whilst this may not be a big problem (altho I've never tried it) depending how new the peircing is you don't really wanna mess with it. Maybe stick with a 1.2 BCR to begin with, altho I personally find a barbell is more comfortable and less agrivating. I have a 1.2 Blackline barbell that I've just downsized to 6mm. It feels great but if it ever swells up (it does so randomly sometimes) I have an 8mm barbell ready for it. That's my opinion but someone more knowledgable will be here soon

    Any reason why you're stretching it? I think I've tried a BCR in mine and it was 8mm maybe 10mm, best way to find out is just buy a couple of sizes or go to a piercer and get them to sort it for you.

    Also if you are going to stretch you want to make sure it's a good 18-24months old and really well behaved.

    Wasn't very clear sorry, I only have the one BCR around which is 1.6, I was only holding it to get an idea of size I'm not stretching it. Just the thought of traveling into town for just a quick visit aha think that's probably my best option

    Cheers for replying though!
