Could I go straight from a 20 gauge to 16 on a helix piercing?

I know practically nothing about gauges, but I don't ever plan on going any larger than 14. I figured I'd just go from a 20 to 16 on the lobes since I haven't heard too many horror stories about that, but is that possible to do on a helix piercing?

    no you have to do it gradually so you don’t end up tarring (if you manage to get it threw) I tried it once and i ended up tarring it not all the way out but far enough that i had to get a stitch or two.
