Picking Out Piercing Add Ons
procedureImage
It is important to choose the right size and material for your piercing jewellery as your body may react differently to different materials. Getting the right size of Add On is important so that you can attach it to your existing piercing bar.

  • Size: Add Ons are measured to fit on a specific bar size. The measurement displayed on the Add On is the diameter of the ball accessory. Click into the product to see which bar size it is suitable for. E.g. 5mm Jewelled Ball Suitable for a 1.6mm bar.
  • Material: Choosing a high quality material such as titanium will provide you with a hypoallergenic material that is perfect for everyday use. Surgical steel is also a good choice for healed piercings as it is durable. Acrylic Add Ons are popular because they come in UV styles and funky shapes. 
  • Threading: When choosing an Add On it is important to get the right threading for your bar. An externally threaded bar means that the screw is on the end of the bar and the hole is in the ball/Add On. An internally threaded bar is the reverse.

Inserting/Removing Piercings Add Ons

Before handling your piercing, always make sure to wash your hands with antibacterial soap. 

It is important to be patient and not attempt to change your piercing jewellery before the piercing is fully healed as this can cause complications. However, once it has healed you can start exploring your options.

To put on a new Add On all you need to do is unscrew the existing piercing ball and screw on the new Add On. Make sure the new jewellery has been cleaned before use. While you are changing your piercing Add On you may want to remove the bar to clean the jewellery and the piercing hole. Make sure the new Add On is screwed in securely. 

Changing an Add On really is as simple as that and can be done in seconds. If you find the ball too tight to unscrew using just your fingers then you can use special jewellery pliers to help.

Where can you use Add Ons?

  • Straight Barbell

  • Circular Barbell
  • Industrial Piercing Bar
  • Labret

For Micro Dermal Anchors make sure to choose a Dermal Top as the dermal anchor is usually internally threaded. Most other types of Add Ons fit onto externally threaded bars (although it is still worth checking your bar before purchasing a replacement ball).
