Helix Piercing 101: The Beginner's Guide to Getting and Caring for Your Piercing

If you're considering getting a helix piercing, it's important to know what to expect from the healing process and how to take care of your new piercing. In this article, we'll go over everything you need to know about helix piercings, from choosing the right jewelry to properly cleaning and caring for your piercing.

What is a helix piercing?

  • A helix piercing is a piercing done on the upper, outer cartilage part of the ear. The term "helix" anatomically describes this part of the ear, which is why the forward helix (a piercing on the front part of the helix) is called what it is. It's important to note that the entire ear is made of cartilage, so this is technically a cartilage piercing.

Healing process:

  • The healing process for a helix piercing takes six to eight months to fully heal. Improper cleaning or sleeping on the piercing can extend the healing process, so it's important to take care of your piercing during this time.

Starting jewelry:

  • When getting a helix piercing, it's best to start with a stud
