Gauge Size (GA) Diameter (inches) Diameter (millimeters)
0000 0.4600 11.6840
000 0.4096 10.4054
00 0.3648 9.2659
0 0.3249 8.2517
1 0.2893 7.3482
2 0.2576 6.5431
3 0.2294 5.8268
4 0.2043 5.1892
5 0.1819 4.6203
6 0.1620 4.1148

Conclusion

The gauge size chart provides a detailed overview of different gauge sizes with their corresponding diameters in inches and millimeters. From the data, it is clear that as the gauge size increases, the diameter measurement decreases. This information is essential for various industries that rely on precise measurements for their work.

FAQ

What is gauge size in relation to body jewelry?

Gauge size refers to the thickness of the jewelry, typically measured in millimeters or fractions of an inch. The higher the gauge number, the thinner the jewelry.

How is gauge size related to piercing needles?

Piercing needles are also measured using gauge sizes, with smaller gauge numbers indicating larger needles. For example, a 14 gauge needle is thicker than a 20 gauge needle.

How do I determine the right gauge size for my piercing?

The appropriate gauge size for a piercing is usually determined by the piercer based on factors such as the location of the piercing and personal preference. It's essential to follow the recommendations of a professional piercer.

Can I stretch my piercing to a larger gauge size?

Yes, some piercings can be stretched gradually to accommodate larger gauge sizes. However, it's important to proceed with caution and follow proper stretching techniques to avoid injury or complications.

Are there different gauge size standards used in different countries?

Yes, there are different gauge size standards such as American Wire Gauge (AWG) and Birmingham Wire Gauge (BWG). It's essential to be aware of these variations when purchasing jewelry or piercing supplies internationally.
