The Rook Piercing was pioneered and made popular by Eric Dakota, in the early nineties. This piercing is performed vertically through the lower leg of the anti-helix, above one’s Daith and just behind the Forward Helix.
A Rook piercing is done with a curved barbell as initial jewellery, although sufficiently sized and shaped rings can be suitable as initial jewellery on some anatomies. Once it is healed, you are free to choose between a bar or a hoop, as the piercing can look gorgeous with either option.
As with all cartilage piercings, healing would take on average six to twelve months. Rook is one of the piercings that doesn’t forgive mistakes, so you must ensure you do not sleep on that side, avoid pressure from a phone etc.
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.
