CARTILAGE PIERCING as Body Jewelry
Cartilage is the part which is harder than the flesh but softer than bones. Our ear is mostly cartilage, except the ear lobe. That gives us the information that "Cartilage Piercing" is the common name given for different types of ear piercings. However, nose piercings are also inserted into the cartilage like septum, nose stud. Ear cartilage piercing examples can be counted as Daith, Industrial, Tragus, Snug, Helix. Conch.
Pain level ranges from medium to high, depending on the type of cartilage you are choosing to get pierced and of course to the pain tolerance as it is relative! Cartilage can be challenging to handle because of its thickness and usually, it takes more time to heal than the regular piercings.
Usually, it takes from 3 months to a year depending on the spot that is perforated. It also depends on the expertise of the piercer you choose and then the aftercare routine. Broadly speaking, always clean your hands before you touch your piercing (it is better not touch it at all!) After you are pierced, be careful with cleaning procedure not to get infected. Try not to use your pierced side until it recovers completely like sleeping on that side or using headphones etc.
If you choose to have a cartilage piercing, it means that you like a challenge! You do not want to accept the general norms the society assign. You want to stand up and express yourself not only with words but with your attitude.
