Ear – Weaving

Ear – Weaving

Weaving piercing is two or more separate rim (or cartilage) piercings that are joined by one barbell. This procedure can be performed as separate piercings with separate jewelry and allowed to heal individually; but can also be fitted with Medproflex or PTFE , which will decrease the amount of tension placed on the structure of the cartilage itself.
