The ball from my piercing jewellery has come off – what can I do to fix it?
One of the piercing problems that gets mentioned most often on Twitter is people losing parts of their jewellery.
Tragus piercings are almost always done with .2mm (16 Gauge) jewellery. Find the correct size and the parts can be replaced no matter if you wear a Ball Closure Ring (BCR), a Straight Barbell or a Labret Stud.
Our selection of “Screw in accessories” includes balls, spikes and cones which are available in a choice of Surgical Steel, Titanium, Blackline and Zircon Gold. Select the 1.2mm option and they should fit most jewellery.
Check our guide to jewellery sizes and how to measure your jewellery.
To fit a new ball to your jewellery, wash and dry your hands then wipe them again with a tissue or paper towel to remove any traces of sebum (the natural oil found in the skin).
Dry and non greasy fingers will make it a lot easier to fit any ball either to a Ball Closure Ring, Labret Stud or Straight Barbell.
Prices start at less than £1 – with competitive international postage rates, and free postage on orders over £15.
