This is generally a low risk piercing with the main risk tearing from the use of too small jewellery. 1.6mm or 14ga is the thinnest one would use and the length or diameter will depend greatly on the placement and the person.

Infection is also rare because of the short healing time, but care must be taken to ensure it is kept clean.
