Ear – Scaffold

Ear – Scaffold

The scaffold 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 one medproflex or PTFE barbell, which will decrease the amount of tension placed on the structure of the cartilage itself. The piercer should carefully mark and plan the piercing so the gauge is suitable for all the tissue it travels though. 14 gauge,16 gauge are probably the wisest choice. Healing Time: 8 – 16 weeks
