Titanium Insertion Taper / Guide Pin / Internally Threaded & Threadless Options


Shipping to United States: $7.87

Taper for easy jewellery insertions.

Some piercings can be tricky to insert yourself, or hard to reach, and these tapers are a fantastic option to offer an ease of insertion. Simply thread your internally threaded jewellery onto the taper, or push your threadless jewellery onto it, and use it to guide your piercing gently in.

No jewellery included - taper only

These are particularly handy given the state of the world at the moment - various lockdowns and sector closures can prevent you from seeking assistance to insert piercings, and these can aid you.
I only recommend using these for well healed piercings, and simply as an aid to assist insertion of jewellery.
If you're having problems with inserting a fresh piercing that has fallen out please see your local piercer!

Sizing details

Everyone's body is different, and therefore jewellery comes in lots of sizes.
If you have any questions about sizing, or would like any advice please message me. I'm always happy to help. However, unless I can see you in person I won't be able to physically measure your body so this will simply be just that - advice.
I am unable to accept returns or exchanges if you've purchased the wrong size for what you need. All listings clearly state their sizing - and please reach out if you need any further measurements of the items!
