Pre-orders are items scattered throughout the site in their appropriate categories. They will ALWAYS be noted in the
title with "PRE-ORDER". Basically you get a lot more control over the item you want and its top quality.
Majority of pre-orders are sent to the manufacturers weekly, but there are some companies that are placed every other
Pre-order time frames are not chosen by Bodyartforms, but are given to us by each manufacturer on how long it will
take them to complete our orders. The time frame varies depending on the manufacturer and each pre-order item
will have the estimated time frame listed on the item page.
All time frames are subject to change without notice. The time frames are on how long it takes the
to be made and it does not include shipping time.
ENTIRE ORDER will be held until we receive all your items. If you want the other items to come
pre-order item then you need to
PLACE A SEPERATE ORDER. Picking express or priority mail will not get your pre-order item to you
it will only speed up the process AFTER we get your item and ship your order out. Once we receive a complete order,
we will ship the order out within 24 hours.
Once an order has been placed with a manufacturer, we are UNABLE TO MAKE ANY CHANGES! Please double check your specs
and that you order the correct size beforehand.
If you want to cancel, remove or change a pre-order item there will be a
15% restocking fee on each item because we cannot stop the pieces from being made, nor can we
to the manufacturer.
In our drop-down menus for adding to cart, we show the gauge of the item you are ordering, then the length/diameter, then the ball size if it has any:
14g - 3/4 inch (5mm balls)
6g - 1/2 inch (8mm balls)
Jewelry is measured through a gauge system (see chart below). The
higher the gauge number the smaller the wire is. A standard "earring" is usually 20 gauge. Jewelry gauges/sizes can vary between manufacturers. There is no universal regulation on companies to make a standard size in body jewelry. A big part of this is that some jewelry is made overseas and measured in millimeters. And in the USA jewelry is measured in inches/gauges. So many times jewelry can be anywhere from .5mm to 1mm different.
9mm to 10mm
