Also known as helix piercings, auricle piercings are placed in the ear rim, usually about halfway down the ear. Most people are able to get this piercing and it can be pierced slightly higher or lower depending on the shape of the ear.
Ball closure rings, barbells and circular barbells can all be worn in auricle piercings. BCRs and circular barbells will move around in the piercing more so a straight barbell is recommended for optimal healing. This can be swapped for a ring once it is fully healed. This piercing should be cleaned at least twice daily with saline solution. Avoid swimming and submersion in water until healed.
Auricle Piercing Healing Time: 2 to 3 weeks
