Calor Style Taper - Sold Price Per Taper - 20g through 00g Available

This calor style taper is made of 304 Stainless Steel.  The taper can be autoclaved and reused.  Each taper is 2" in length and tapers down 2 gauges smaller than the listed size. For example, a 0g (8mm) taper at its thinnest point is approximately 4g (5mm). Calor Style Tapers are thicker and recessed so you can fit the jewelry inside the taper; this helps prevent slipped while stretching.  The chart bellow shows the thickness and diameter of the taper. Use this insertion taper pin to stretch your piercing.

The Calor Style is extremely difficult to make with a lot of waste. The other companies that have made this style make the tapers bigger to reduce damage and save on cost. We manufacture the thinnest wall, so that when you stretch, you are not over stretching.
