The most popular ear cartilage piercing in the US. In a fresh puncture, you can use only a labret. An 8-mm labret is placed and isn’t removed until the swelling has completely subsided.
Around 4 to 8 weeks from the piercing date, and when there’s no swelling, the labret is downsized to a 6-mm bar. During the healing period, you can not wear headphones. Although you’ll use a labret for the entire healing period, the stud on this labret can be as colorful and bold as you like, though.
