eye catchy mid helix piercing ideas to try cover

Helix piercings are the most popular ones, there are forward, upper, mid helix piercings to choose from, and the latter aren’t so often seen and done, which means you can stand out with them. There’s nothing average about a mid-helix, it’s a true minimalist idea for those who don’t want all these usual piercings out there but want a slight accent to the ear. Forget the upper cartilage and pierce slightly lower than a standard helix! Here are some tips to handle this kind of piercing.

Does A Helix Piercing Hurt?

Cartilage piercings generally fall low on the pain scale. It will depend on the specific location of the helix piercing, however, you shouldn’t feel more than a slight pinch. Since the cartilage in the helix piercing area is so thin, the piercing process goes quickly. For a few days after piercing, you’ll feel some throbbing and see swelling and slight bleeding. In moderation, these symptoms are normal. If you experience these in excess, consult a medical professional.

Cartilage piercings are susceptible to complications like cartilage bumps, so it’s important to watch your piercing as it heals and refrain from moving the jewelry. Cartilage heals differently than soft skin, and it can be easily damaged during healing.
