Placement: On the inner ring on the outside of the ear, also called the anti-helix, usually in the center.
Healing Time: 6-12 months or longer
Jewelry: 16g curved barbell or captive bead ring
Troubleshooting: Majority of people do not have the patience or anatomy support to heal this piercing. It’s very thick and covers a lot of tissue causing it a longer healing period. Also the placement is rounded, which causes the piercing to constantly be under pressure. And finally it’s on the outside of the ear, which tends to go through more traumas than the piercing protected on the inner ear
Aftercare: We suggest cleaning your piercings with H2Ocean Piercing Aftercare Spray 2 – 4 times a day. Refer to our Aftercare Instructions for more details.
Retiring: The scars for these are hardly noticeable with an uneventful healing process. The condition of the piercing and the reason why you removed it will determine the final appearance.
