To know the size of a piercing you need to take into account 3 main measurements: the thickness of the bar, the diameter or longitude, and the diameter of the ball.
For example, in a Circular Barbell with two balls, the inside diameter of the hoop and the thickness of the bar is measured. To measure it you will need a Caliper.
Caliper: Instrument used to measure dimensions of relatively small objects, from centimeters to millimeter fractions.
