Tragus

Placement: This is the piercing performed through the “little ear flapping thing” located on the side of your head and in front of your ear.

Healing Time: 3-9 months or longer

Jewelry: 18g-16g Circular barbell, curved barbell, straight barbell, or captive bead ring

Troubleshooting: This piercing can be very susceptible to getting little bumps (hypertrophic scarring). These are formed in many cases because they are being slept on. To help avoid these bumps, try not to sleep on your piercing. Sleeping on a donut shaped pillow with your piercings in the middle can help a lot to avoid the bumps and getting rid of any that form. Taking your piercing out should be a last resort. As usual, if you have questions, it is always best to ask your piercer to help you.

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: If you have an uneventful healing period the scar should look no more than like an enlarged pore. This piercing will shrink/close fairly fast. The condition of the piercing and the reason why you removed it will determine the final appearance.
