A Helix Piercing, also known as Cartilage Piercing, usually refers to the ridge of the cartilage around the upper edge of the ear.
Depending on your anatomy, we would generally follow the indentation along the fold of your ear, and help you pick a design that perfectly sits there.
A Double Helix or Triple Helix is very popular, the combinations are endless and we are here to help you choose.
We would have to use a straight labret bar stud for the piercings, for your safety, as they are the best for healing. Do not worry, we have countless gorgeous designs!
Hoops as initial jewellery on the Helix are not recommended as we find that they interfere majorly with the healing process.
Tight hoops are totally suitable and are in fact dangerous. This dainty little hugging hoop you are dreaming of needs patience.
Swapping for a hoop early will irritate and might damage your piercing.
As is the case with all our piercings, we would perform a Helix Piercing with sterile single-use ultra sharp, tri-beveled Needle Blades. They are the highest standard in the Body Piercing industry, as they cause minimal trauma, avoid tissue drag and allow for smooth jewellery insertion. Your new piercing deserves the best it can get, and we have all the necessary expertise, tools, jewellery and experience to ensure that.
Healing would take on average six to twelve months, but each person heals differently.
Please, carefully read and follow our Aftercare Instructions and take very good care of your piercing to avoid any complications. We are with you for the entire healing journey, with free checkups and advice along the way.
