# What is a double zero in gauges?

## What is a double zero in gauges?

Gauge sizes are a little counterintuitive at first, because they’re literally backwards: the smaller the number, the larger the size. Standard ear piercings are usually pierced at 20g or 18g. When you get to 0g, the next size is 00g (pronounced “double zero gauge”). 00g is equal to about 3/8 of an inch.

Is there a size between 0 and 00 gauge?

To avoid damaging the ear lobe, it is necessary to use “half sizes” to keep the stretches at one millimeter increments. The half size between 2g and 0g is 7mm, also known as 1g. The half size between 0g and 00g is 9mm and is occasionally called 00g.

### What size gauge is a 00?

3/8-inch
00 gauge = 3/8-inch or 9.3 millimeters.

What comes after a double 0 gauge?

Answer: After 00g, you run out of gauge sizes, so you would use fractions of an inch instead. The next size after 00g is 7/16″.

#### Will double zero gauges close up?

Keep in mind though that everyone’s anatomy is different, but the majority of people will be able to take their plugs out at 2 -0 gauge and your lobes will look normal after a 2 – 3 months of closing up. There are also other factors that will affect the permanency of your size.

What’s the next size after 1 2 inch?

Bolt Diameter Metric Standard
1/4″ 11mm 7/16″
5/16″ 13mm 1/2″
3/8″ 14mm 9/16″
7/16″ 16mm 5/8″

## Will a 0 gauge close up?

Generally, 0 gauge has been coined “the point of no return,” meaning that once you have stretched that far, it’s not going to go back. Over the point of no return, your ears can shrink, but they may not return to normal, just a smaller gauge.

Which is the next size after 0g gauge?

When you get to 0g, the next size is 00g (pronounced “double zero gauge”). 00g is equal to about 3/8 of an inch. After 00g, we run out of gauge sizes, so we use fractions of an inch instead. The next size after 00g is 7/16″.

### How big is an 18G ear gauge?

Gauge sizes go up (or down, depending on how you look at it) in even numbers from there, so the next largest size from an 18g is 16g, then 14g, then 12g, and so on. When you get to 0g, the next size is 00g (pronounced “double zero gauge”). 00g is equal to about 3/8 of an inch.

What are the different types of body jewelry gauges?

There are two main systems of measuring body jewelry sizes: 1 Gauge (“ga” or just “g”) 2 Millimeter (“mm”) More

#### What’s the next size after a 00g ear plug?

The next size after 00g is 7/16″. The sizes go up by 1 sixteenth of an inch from there, but they’re reduced fractions, so instead of 8/16″, we just say 1/2″. (And you probably thought in school you’d never have any use for learning fractions!) Why Are Gauge Sizes Backwards?
