Intended piercing gauge

Product Code: TIP

316L Surgical Stainless Steel Tapered Insertion Pins.

The insertion pins are used to stretch up a piercing one size at a time - i.e. - if you wanted to stretch from a 1.6mm to 2.4mm, then you would need a 2.4mm pin. The 2.4mm pin starts at 1.6mm and gradually increases in size to a 2.4mm.

To use the pin, you will need to lubricate it (substances such as Savlon, Liquid Soap, Vitamin-E oil are recommended) and push it slowly through your piercing.

Once the pin is almost all the way through the piercing you put the jewellery on the end of the pin, and push it though. The pin will then come out of the piercing and the jewellery will be in.

It is recommended to wait at least 3 weeks in between each stretch.

All of our Insertion Pins are 50mm in length.

Suitable for: Ear Piercing - Stretched Lobes, Female Genital Piercing, Male Genital Piercing, Nipple Piercing, Septum Piercing

Jewellery Type: Stretching Tools

Excellent (21 January 2015)

I had my nipples pierced in November and used this to expand my nipples to 2.4mm. Perfect and straightforward to use. I'm ordering more to taking my piercings to the next level. The only small criticism would be it would be handy if the jewellery could screw into the end, but that's just a niggle.


Superb (26 December 2014)

Brilliant - first time I have used one and I stretched my PA from 4G to 2G really easily. I lubed up first and it pushed through effortlessly - the whole process of fitting the 2G BCR was completed in less than 5 minutes. Will definitely use to for fitting the 0G ring.

taper pin stretcher (27 March 2014)

I found the pin to be well made and very smooth.
1 slight grumble was that the recess in the thick end is not quite deep enough, and its easy to misalign during jewelery insertion, I'd prefer to be able to screw the jewelery to the taper for an easier stretch.


Amazing (10 November 2013)

I used this to stretch my tongue from 3.2mm to 4mm and then from 4mm to 5mm. Extremely recommended, with just a little lube it slips in ever so easily and very little pain. A must have if your a little mad and decide to stretch your tongue :)

steel tapered pin (02 October 2013)

WOW, have used plastic tapers before always found they hurt like hell. not been long at 4mm in my PA. So got this tapered pin to 5mm and took just 10 minutes to push through and now at 5mm. Highly recommended to use in a PA.

the best (22 July 2013)

The best taper I've use so far, and don't think i'll be using any other, soo soo easy to slide threw your ear, and the concaved end makes inserting your plugs or eyelets without any problems, used the 10mm just ordered 12 mm :D

Amazing for ears (09 September 2012)

I love these. I wouldn't use anything else to stretch with now. I have ears that don't love to stretch more than 1mm at a time and I have used this at 7, 9, 10 and now 11mm. The 11mm was lovely and long to allow for a smooth stretch and I have had no problems at all. I wouldn't want to stretch with anything else. x

Makes stretching super easy!!! (07 August 2012)

Absolutely the best, personally I consider concave steel tapers to be the safest and easiest to use.
Unlike most tapers these beauties are exponentially gradual, and with a little oil should go through super easily.
The concave end makes it easy to slip the appropriate jewellery into place.
I would defo recommend these to all stretchers, from novice to pro!

Tapers (08 July 2012)

Just used the 00g taper yesterday to stretch my pa and as with previous tapers I've got from here they are excellent smooth and ideal for stretching :)
