The Pros and Cons of a Rook Piercing: Is It Right for You?

If you're considering getting a rook piercing, it's important to understand both the pros and the cons before making a decision. Here is a breakdown of what you should consider:

Pros:

  1. Unique and cute jewelry options: Rook piercings offer a wide range of jewelry options, including 14 karat Crystal bezel barbells, 14 karat Crystal rook barbells, and 14 karat Crystal hinge rings.

  2. Stress relief: Some people claim that rook piercings can help relieve stress, although it's always best to seek professional help for such issues.

  3. Easy to hide: Because the piercing is on the inside of the ear, it can be easily hidden with your hair.

  4. Easy to sleep with: Sleeping with a rook piercing is generally less harsh than sleeping with other types of ear piercings, such as helix piercings.

Cons:

  1. Long healing time: Rook piercings take a while to heal, with a healing time of six to nine months.

  2. Difficult to switch out or downsize jewelry: It can take four to five months to switch out or downsize jewelry in a rook piercing.

  3. Difficult to clean: Since the piercing is on the inside of the ear, it can be challenging to clean and may accumulate gunk or other debris.

If you're interested in getting a rook piercing, be sure to do your research and understand both the pros and the cons. And remember to always seek a professional piercer to ensure the best possible results.
