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.

Daith Piercings

I would like to set the record straight on the correct way to pronounce “daith piercing”. In 20 years of piercing professionally I have yet to hear a customer pronounce it correctly. And to be fair, it’s understandable. Logically, you would think that it’s pronounced how you spell it. Not in this case. The proper way to say it is just like you would say goth but with a D. Pretty simple, so now you know!

A daith piercing is a cartilage piercing found on the ear, in the small fold of cartilage just above the ear canal. They usually take about 2-3 months to heal. You can choose between a captive bead ring or a curved barbell for your starting jewelry. Another popular piece of jewelry that’s been getting a lot of attention for this piercing are the heart rings. Usually you’re body jewelry is going to be a thickness of 16g or 14g. Those two gauges are considered standard for the first 2-3 months. The diameter or length will be decided by your piercer at the time of the piercing depending on your ear and the look your trying to achieve. Hold off on putting in any elaborate jewelry until your ear is fully healed. Jewelry with many fancy details tends to have a lot of nooks and crannies that can harbor bacteria and cause complications during the healing process.
