Daith Piercing Info and FAQ

9/5/2017 3:35 PM

Daith Cartilage Piercing Aftercare

A daith piercing (pronounced doth) is a type of ear piercing that is positioned along the inner most cartilage fold of the ear. This is along the same line that holds the helix piercing further up towards the outer edge. Often it appears that the ring is coming straight out of the ear canal itself. You might be surprised to find out that many people get daith piercings because they're said to cure headaches. This piercing works like acupuncture that uses pressure points to alleviate pain.

Why Can't I Fit a Daith Piercing?

Before committing to a daith piercing it's important to check to see if you have a large enough fold for the piercing to run through. If in doubt always check early with your piercer. The size of this fold will also affect whether you can get a double or triple daith piercing as well, which are smaller piercings further down the innermost fold of the ear.

Like any piercing, whether you can fit a daith piercing depends entirely on your anatomy.

Don’t Apply Makeup to a Healing Piercing!

Gum Irritation and Recession

A lip piercing that has a bar or ring that constantly rubs against the gums can cause irritation and after a period of time wear.

Body Jewelry Piercing Sizes

Have you ever wondered about piercing jewelry sizes? Many piercings have “standard” sizes that they use for different kinds of piercings. For example, a nose piercing is usually much thinner than jewelry used in a lip piercing. Sometimes this is aesthetic, sometimes this is the safest size to pierce at to avoid the healing period going awry.

Of course, all jewelry and sizes vary depending on each individual’s anatomy and at the piercer’s discretion. Find out how to measure you own jewelry in this post here. Your piercer should take into account the placement of the piercing and your anatomy. But that doesn’t mean you can’t speak to your piercer about choosing another size. They may be able to accommodate you or explain why that size isn’t possible for you.

Let’s get into it!

What is a Corset Piercing?

7/31/2017 11:01 AM

Corset Piercing

A corset piercing is just a chain of surface piercings in at least two or more rows, laced together using a ribbon, chain or anther material that can be looped through a ring. It does not have to be in the shape of corset lacing as the name suggests, but is commonly so. This piercing can be done almost anywhere a surface piercing can be done, as long as there is enough space for the desired design.

Corset piercings are typically not a permanent piercing! Due to the strain that can be caused by consistently pulling on the skin by any threaded ribbon. Actually, ribbons should not be worn in a healing corset piercing at all! The pulling of the ribbons may put pressure or tension on a piercing that may cause it to migrate and not heal correctly.
