Forward Helix Piercing Guide

Finding your perfect forward helix piercing size depends on a couple of factors:

  •  Your individual anatomy - everyones ears are different so the diameter you need will be based on your skin thickness and ear shape. Unfortunately body jewellery isn't universal, so what works for one person may not necessarily work for you.
  • Your piercing placement - a forward piercing is placed on the fold of cartilage above the tragus which is thicker towards the bottom and gets thinner higher up, so the bar length or inner diameter required can vary on the exact location.

Recommended Sizes:
Gauge: 16g (1.2mm)
Bar Length: 5mm - 8mm

A forward helix piercing is the perfect placement for a dainty stud or hoop.

If you're unsure on sizing, we always recommend visiting your local piercing studio for professional advice.
