Piercing Ball 16 Gauge are the standard size to use for your eyebrow and lip body piercing jewellery. We sell a large range of sizes, from 2.5 mm, 3 mm, 4 mm, 5 mm, and 6 mm diameter. There are many sizes to suit your style, and piercing perfectly! It is so easy to loose a ball, so maybe buy a couple! The Jewelled Piercing Ball 16 Gauge are great as you don’t have to buy a whole new bar. It can be nice to change the colour of your balls to match your clothing or theme. And it can be nice to wear darker colours in the winter like purples and red and lighter colours in the summer like blues and light greens
These Balls will screw onto any 16 gauge threaded bar that you already have. (A tip – 16 Gauge means that is 1.2 mm size of bar. It is the thinner sized body jewellery bar)
Balls are made from surgical steel 316 L. This means they are implant-grade surgical stainless steel. It is probably the most common and most widely used metal for body piercings.
What is “Surgical stainless steel”?
Surgical stainless steel is an informal term which refers to certain grades of stainless steel that are used in biomedical applications. Surgical Stainless Steels (316 L) are used for bone fixation screws, body pins, bone plates, staples, amongst many other applications. We do not play or gamble with your health.
If you’re wearing SS 316 L jewellery and are having problems with irritation or a new piercing that just won’t heal, it is possible that you have a intolerance of surgical steel and might want to try titanium.
These piercing balls are from Thailand from a company that does not use child labour and pays fair wages.
