Ear weaving consists of a number of ear cartilage piercings linked by one piece of jewellery, usually a spiral barbell. The piercings are usually located in the helix (outer ear rim) and can be pierced together or on different occasions.
Body spirals, spiral barbells and custom jewellery can all be worn in ear weavings. The jewellery used must fit exactly to ensure good healing, so it may be necessary to create custom jewellery for an ear weaving. Healing an ear weaving will often take longer than it would to heal individual piercings. This is because greater stress is placed upon the healing ability of the ear and because the spiral jewellery is more likely to move about. This piercing should be cleaned at least twice daily with saline solution. Avoid swimming and submersion in water until healed.
Ear Weaving Piercing Healing Time: 8 to 16 weeks
