A tragus piercing is a type of ear piercing that is done through the small, pointed piece of cartilage that juts out in front of the ear canal, known as the tragus. It is typically a small, delicate piercing that can be adorned with a variety of jewelry styles, such as small studs, hoops, or barbells.
Tragus piercings have become really popular in recent years, however, they can take longer to heal than other ear piercings due to the thickness of the tragus cartilage.
A tragus piercing typically takes about 3-6 months to fully heal. However, some people may experience a longer healing time depending on their individual body's healing process and aftercare practices. It's important to continue cleaning the piercing regularly and avoiding any irritants or trauma to the area during the healing process.
Piercing the tragus can be more painful than other piercings as it is a thicker piece of cartilage with a high concentration of nerve endings. However, pain is subjective and can vary from person to person. Some individuals report minimal pain while others may experience more discomfort.
At Serenity Jewellery, we have been selling jewellery online for over 20 year, and are known for our huge selection of alternative and hypoallergenic jewellery.
We know how uncomfortable earrings can be to wear, especially cartilage earrings, so we only sell jewellery that is made from hypoallergenic materials, meaning you can wear it 24/7 comfortably.
Also, because we never use plated jewellery, all of our jewellery is tarnish-free and waterproof, so you don't have to worry about taking it off when showering or working out/ swimming without it going green or tarnishing.
Unlike other jewellery companies, we accept returns even if you have worn them, for up to 60 days. So you can shop in confidence, knowing if you buy the wrong item or it is uncomfortable to wear for any reason, we can help you find the right alternative or give you a refund for the jewellery.
Labret studs are a great option for a tragus piercing. They are a popular choice for many piercings because the ball can be easily screwed on and off from the front. They are designed with a flat back, which can be more comfortable to wear, especially when sleeping.
Barbells can be used in a tragus piercing. However, it is important to choose the appropriate size and length of the barbell for your tragus piercing to ensure proper healing and comfort. See the size guide below for the right barbell size for your tragus piercing.
Small hoops, such as captive bead rings, can be suitable for a tragus piercing. However, it's important to choose the appropriate size and gauge for your individual tragus. It's also recommended to wait until the piercing is fully healed before changing to a hoop to avoid irritation or discomfort.
Segment rings are another type of jewellery that can be used in a tragus piercing. These rings are circular and consist of two parts that can be twisted apart, making them easy to insert and remove. They also have a seamless look, which can look really nice in a tragus piercing.
TRAGUS PIERCING SIZES
When selecting jewellery for a tragus piercing, it's important to consider the size and shape of the piercing. The tragus is a relatively small area, so choosing a smaller piece of jewellery can be more comfortable and less likely to cause irritation or discomfort. While we offer a large selection of cartilage jewellery, not all of it will be suitable for a tragus piercing.
Labret studs are a great option for tragus piercings for comfort.
Straight or circular barbells can be used for tragus piercings.
Smaller hoops and segment rings look great in a tragus piercing.
