Well, I figured everybody could post their piercing-related diagrams, charts, and other useful pictorial knowledge here.  I have one for ears....I don't remember where I found this, but please let me know if any are innacurate!

And I'm really looking for an accurate gauge chart, since I'm getting iffy about how sure I am about the size of my own.  If anybody has one, please post it here!

The one that says cartilage, is a helix (the whole outer ear structure is cartilage). Industrial is spelled wrong (this piercing was named in Body Play magazine based on Erik Dakotas captions, so even if it is some kind of foreign way to spell industrial, it is still wrong). The one that says conque, is an inner CONCH, and outer Conch has been omitted. This one has been floating around for years...

and here are your gauge charts

Hooks sizes....

Stainless steel components....

Yess!  Just as I was hoping, my right lobe is up to a 4 now!  Now I just have to get jewelry and do the other one.

Grays Anatomy defines the entire ridge as the helix.... so ummm, yeah I am gonna have to go with them on that one... Just playing with you psycho.... but seriously, no the entire thing is the helix.... I will hook you up with a link....

I could probably see if I can get more steel charts from my daddy.  He's a truckdriver for a big steel company that handles a lot of high-grade stuff.

I have no idea what they're talking about with the preauricular skin tag....I defnitely don't have that, nor do I think I've ever seen one...and I don't think I have the pit, either.

Oh good, fucking god.  Monoxide child, just go to a shop!  Most piercers would be happy to stretch your ears for you.  They may charge you a minimal fee, but they will use proper tools.  Don't be a jack-ass.Shakes%20Fist

I noticed for some reason no one ever lists the forward helix as a piercing. I've only seen it on a diagram once, and that was at the shop where I got it done. Go figure.


Posted By: MontanaPiercer
Date Posted: April/20/2007 at 8:01pm
because no matter where you pierce it, a helix is a helix, further designation isn't necessary

My boyfriend used a pen lid, and laughed at me for using a taper and 'being a pussy'.
Who's the one who's still got them in, ae? :P ME.

It's a piercing site, and you can pierce a penis, so he wanted to see a diagram of the different penile piercings. Nothing homoerotic about it

Hey Im intreasted in knowing the actulle size of jewelry in mm. For example say I got sum 0g plugs, whats the given window for measuments? Like its supposed ta b 8mm. But whats acceptable? 7.4, 8.3?
Or strickly 8.0?
 Im sure it also matters a great deal on the company and material. Thnx for yur input.

Posted By: Kiyishima
Date Posted: December/12/2008 at 11:52am
Well i'm no expert, and this thread is pretty old, lol. Mmmm I guess a plug at the size of 7 mm would be considered a 1 gauge, not really a 0.
But depending on the material and type of jewelry it is, I'm sure that the mm size would vary.

this answers many questions i had about the standard lamb/tub model.  i experimented with the spam/tub and the yogurt/tub models briefly in my studies as a young astrophysicist.  i believe the dynamic coefficient of the genuine ceramic bathtub combined with the deliciousness of a well-marbled slab of processed meats is key to understanding life as we know it.  those dicks at cambridge said that their sink/banana model was the most efficient for displaying fundamental principles of the universe.
