Placement: A Transverse Ear Lobe goes through the lobe lengthways instead of directly through it.
Healing Time: 2-10 months
Jewelry: Depending on the shape of your ear lobe and specific desired result, this piercing is done with either a captive bead ring, straight or curved barbell. The gauge of the jewelry used in this piercing is typically 16g-14g.
Troubleshooting: Migration is the most common problem since this is an advanced piercing. It’s important that your piercer use the best size and shape of jewelry to help ensure its success. If you have any problems, it is better to talk to your piercer than to try home remedies that might not work or make it worse.
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: Since this piercing is in the ear lobe, in most cases there will be little evidence of the old piercing. The condition of the piercing and the reason why you removed the piercing will determine the final appearance.
