16g E-Z Piercing Bent Barbell One-Step-Down-Threaded

This one-step down threaded bent barbell is great for initial piercings.  It has a superior shine and is extremely high quality. The way this works is the the 16g jewelry has 0.8mm threads which will fit into a 16g piercing needle, so the thread pattern is 0.8mm on this 16g jewelry. Please be sure to tell your clients if you are using step down jewelry so that they know which tops they can purchase to match with this shaft.

This 16g bent barbell comes in 8mm (5/16") or 10mm (3/8") length with a 3mm balls.  The thread pattern is 0.8mm x 0.2mm external, which means you can use any of our 16g loose balls with 0.8mm threading to fit on this bent barbell.

How do these work?

The threaded end is smaller than the bar size which allows the it to fit inside our hollow piercing needles.
