    nose hoop gauge?

    Advertisements
    so, it's time for a new hoop. the one i have has gotten so bent up over the years. problem is... i have no idea what gauge i need.

    does anyone know what the standard is? or how i can figure out what size my current hoop is? i know i could go to a shop and ask, but i just plan on running to hot topic, since i need to go to the mall, anyway.

    16 or 18 I think. 18 is great. If it looks super thin, don't get it.

    I don't think it would be any bigger than 16.

    most pierce with a 20 actually. but 18 and 20 are both so tiny that it's really not a struggle to switch in and out.

    awesome. i'm not too worried about getting the exact same gauge, but i did buy some studs that were a bit smaller, once, and whenever i switch from those to my hoop, my nose gets a little tender for a couple days.

    hopefully, if i go with the standard piercing size, then i won't have to deal with that.
