What is 14g in mm? 14g gauge/plug sizes explained

People new to modern body modifications are often confused by the “G” sizes plugs and gauges come in. This is because in the gauge system, a larger number means smaller plug (or hole) size. So, what is 14g in mm?

How large is 14g in mm?

14g diameter is 1.6 mm, which is just slightly larger than the starting 18 gauge plug that is the traditional size when you have your ears pierced.
