Ear – Daith

Ear – Daith

The Daith (Crux of Helix) is the fold of cartilage that sits beneath the rook and is closest to the ear canal. Again, there must be enough cartilage to comfortably hold the chosen jewellery. Micro jewellery (18g to 16 gauge) often rests well in most Daith piercings because the Daith can be quite shallow, and again the diameter of the ball closure ring can be as little as a couple of millimetres larger than the thickness of the pierced cartilage. Curved barbells are a better choice, over straight barbells and labrets. Healing Time: 8 – 16 weeks
