Fits anywhere!

Really nice little curved barbell, fits in virtually any piercings and is simple but eye catching. Only reason I havenít given 5 stars is because it does turn often so it can look a little odd when the curve is facing forward.

Seems like decent metal but itís incredibly tiny. Wouldnít fit through my cartilage piercing and the balls were way too small to screw on. Wasted my money

I'm sorry to hear the earring didn't fit your piercing. Ears and piercings vary so much it really is worth measuring before you buy (please see the link in the product description). 6mm is a very popular size but can still be too short for some or too long for others.

If you find the screw-on balls difficult to handle close-fitting latex/latex-free gloves can help to give you more grip. They can also be change to any of the other 1.2mm gauge externally threaded screw-on accessories.

Bought this for a friend, she's thrilled with it because it can be quite difficult to get tragus piercings in steel unless you go to specialist places. Very good price for the quality.

Metal Allergies
316L surgical steel is hypoallergenic but does contain a small amount of nickel. The nickel release rate is only around 0.02 0.02μg/cm2/week but it may cause a problem if you are very sensitive to nickel.
