Recommendations when getting an ear piercing
Choose the area of the ear
Versatility defines ear piercings, choose the area that best suits you: helix, tragus, orbital, snug, conch, daith, rock, industrial...
Follow hygiene recommendations
Infections are very common in ear piercings, which is why it is very important to follow the recommendations of professionals and prevent them from spreading further and refer them as soon as possible.
Removing the earrings early (six weeks) could cause the piercing to shrink or close, requiring you to get the piercing done again.
Frequently asked questions before getting an ear piercing
We answer all your questions about ear piercings
The ear piercing known as helix, is one of the most requested and is located in the upper external cartilage of the ear. In addition, it has other variations such as "double helix" and even "triple helix" piercings.
This type of ear piercing is not very painful, but hygiene and care must be taken once it is done, as it is prone to infection. For this reason, we always recommend using sea salt or a saline solution to clean the piercing and help it heal quickly.
The healing and complete healing of a helix piercing, as it is in an area of cartilage, can take a longer recovery time than for a simple skin piercing: it usually takes between three and six months to heal completely.
The ear, gin general, is not usually an area that hurts when piercing, this will also depend on the pain threshold of each person and the specific area: if you decide to pierce the cartilage, it will surely be the piercing that you can cause the most pain.
The cartilage piercings that can cause you the most pain are the conch (half-ear) and the industrial (the bar that goes through the top of the ear), even the helix and daith, located in the cartilage. In addition to being the most painful, they take the longest to fully heal.
There are different types and styles of piercing depending on where in the ear you decide to pierce. Among them, we can highlight the following:
Lobe and upper lobe: these are the most common areas for drilling. In fact, the lobe earring is the one we used to wear when we were babies. The earlobe is the lower, fleshy, rounded part and the upper one is right next to it.
Helix and counterhelix: this is one of the most demanded piercings, and it is located right on the edge of the ear, the outer cartilage that runs along the side and reaches the top. That is why we call it the counterhelix.
Antihelix, rook and daith piercings: the first refers to the part of the cartilage that is already located in the inner part of the ear and attached to the face. The rook piercing would be in the inner cartilage of the ear, located in the upper part of the ear. And the daith is found in the cartilage of the central part of the ear.
Tragus and antitragus: these are located in the area of the cartilage that is closest to the face and gives access to the ear. Just opposite, also marking the entrance to the ear, is the antitragus.
This is a technique that has gone viral. According to the American doctor Thomas Cohn, daith piercing is an effective remedy that promises to end ailments such as anxiety, stress or migraines and he claims its benefits are based on acupuncture.
However, doctors and experts reject this assertion, since they claim that these pathologies cannot be treated with piercings or tattoos. Medicine makes it clear that if someone wants to cure an ailment, it is wise not to resort to fashions like this type of piercing.
