Beside above, is it bad to get cartilage pierced with a hoop?
Hoops may be too small to give your piercing breathing space. And they also like to move around a lot more than studs, not to mention, they can get snagged easily— which can irritate the piercing and slow down your healing time. But, you need to consult your piercer to get one most suitable for your ear.

What size hoop is best for cartilage?
Most piercing points suggest 4 to 6 weeks for changing cartilage but it’s better to wait at least 8 to 10 weeks. It also depends on how many times your ear is infected.
It is very possible for your piercing to close up that quickly, especially if it is a cartilage piercing. Cartilage takes longer to heal and takes less to irritate. Ear cartilage piercings take anywhere from 6 months to two years to heal completely, which is something they should have told you when you got it.
