A barbell consists of a straight or curved bar with a ball and/or decorative end on each side. Barbells can be made from various materials, such as titanium, surgical steel, gold, or bioplast, and come in different sizes and lengths. Barbell jewellery is commonly used in body piercings, such as tongue, nipple, eyebrow, and industrial piercings, but it can also go in certain cartilage piercings too.
The name "barbell" comes from its resemblance to a weightlifting bar, with the balls or decorative ends resembling weights.
In this guide we will go through the various types and sizes you can buy, and which will work for you.
Straight barbells are a versatile type of body jewelry that can be used in various types of piercings. They come in different sizes, which makes them suitable for different parts of the body, such as the cartilage, tongue, or nipple. This variety allows for creativity when choosing the right straight barbell for a specific piercing.
Curved barbells are suitable for several types of piercings, such as eyebrow piercings, various cartilage piercings, lip piercings, and more. While they are versatile, belly bars are also a type of curved barbell that are often categorized separately due to their specific design and use for navel piercings.
Tongue barbells are a type of straight barbells specifically designed for tongue piercings. It's important to note that some barbells may have plating or coating that can make them unsuitable for use in a tongue piercing. In this category, you will find barbells that are safe and suitable for tongue piercings.
Circular barbells are most popular for septum piercings, and can be used in some cartilage, lip and nipple piercings too. You may see circular barbells referred to as horseshoe or CBBs also.
Barbells are often available in several thicknesses and lengths. The thickness and length you need for your specific piercing can differ from the standard sizes. The illustration shows how a barbell is measured.
