Looking to make your piercings less noticeable? Then these hider retainers might be just right for you! Skin tone and made from comfortable silicone.

These retainers are made entirely of silicone. They are available in seven different tones. To insert, thread the flexible needle end through piercing and grab with either tweezers or fingers on the other side. Pull through completely.

The below measurements are approximate:

  • The heart shaped base and needle end measure  3/8" long
  • The hider end measures 2mm
  • A video showing how to insert the retainer is posted here by Kaos
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:

Jewelry is measured through a gauge system (conversion chart below). The higher the gauge number the smaller the wire is. For reference, a standard "earring" is usually 20 gauge. Jewelry gauges can vary between manufacturers. There is no universal regulation on companies to make a standard size in body jewelry. This is because some jewelry is made outside of the USA and measured in millimeters. And in the USA jewelry is measured in inches.

Rings

Rings are an essential item that can be worn in many piercings. They come in various styles:
  • Captive bead rings - These use tension to hold a bead in place.
  • Clickers - These use a hinge to open and close the ring.
  • Segment rings - These have a "segment" that comes completely out of the jewelry similar to removing a bead. But it looks like a completely seamless piece of jewelry.
  • Seamless rings - These rings require bending to open & close.
How to measure rings

Verified purchase 18g 5/16" Version 1.5
I'm not allowed to have my nostril piercing at my job but I didn't want to lose it so I bought this. It looks great, you can barely see it. I bought the one that's got somewhat of a reddish tint to it since my face is typically red from rosacea and acne.

Wear this in my 20 yr old nostril piercing. Able to wear it to work and to my diagnostic imaging studies. Might be buying one for a spare.

A bit tough to thread through your nose, you definitely need to use tweezers to help out. Pretty much invisible once it's in though! And very comfortable as well.
