The Circular Barbell is a variant of the barbell piercing. It is also called Horseshoe Piercing, because it has the shape of a horseshoe. It consists of a rod with threads and screw-on ends, these essays are mostly bullets or cones, but can also take on quite different shapes. The difference to the Straight Barbell Piercing is the bending of the bar, but unlike the Ball Closure Ring it is not a closed ring, but leaves a gap. Another variant is called the Curved Barbell or Banana, this is the strongest of the Circular Barbell, but is not quite as strong bent, but only slightly, just like a banana. |-| Circular Barbell Designs ~~ The different Circular Barbells differ in the thickness of the rod, ie the thickness of the material, in the inner diameter of the indicated circle and in the size of the ends.
