A cartilage piercing at the top of the ear, Helix or Flet is one of the most popular ear piercings at the moment. As in most fresh cartilage punctures, a 6-mm labret is installed.
After the swelling subsides, it’s better to change to a 5-mm labret. When fully healed, you can replace the labret bar with a ring, which you can find in various shapes, types, and sizes.
Due to their location, helix piercings don’t heal as well as others; they partly cling to hair, a mask, and so on. But it’s precisely because of the location that this piercing looks interesting. Plus, there’s a large variety of jewelry that works well with your new helix.
