Pain Will Vary
Everyone has a different pain tolerance. The general answer given by those that have had a double helix is that the pain falls into the medium level. It hurts more than getting just your earlobe pierced but less than some other body piercings.
Likewise, people ask, can I get 2 helix piercings at once?
Can You Get Both Helix Piercings Together? First thing’s first: Yes, you can get a double-helix piercing done at the same time. In fact, it’s recommended considering the healing time of cartilage piercings (more on that later!)
Thereof, how much does it cost for a double helix piercing?
How much will it cost? You will most likely spend around $40 – $50 on your helix piercing. If you go to a store with a piercing gun, the price will probably be around $20, however, DO NOT DO THIS. You should never go to a piercer who uses a piercing gun for any piercing.
Can a helix piercing paralyze you?
It is a common myth that if a piercing is not done in the exact correct place that you will become paralyzed. This simply is not true! This myth originated because of a single case where after having her ears pierced, 15 year old Grace Etherington became paralyzed.
Do ear piercings hurt? … Different parts of the ear are bound to hurt more than others because the flesh varies – the ear lobe is generally considered the least painful piercing whereas cartilage piercings, like the helix, tragus, conch and so on – will usually be more painful because it’s tougher.
You can have your helix piercing at the top of your ear or down a bit further. There’s a lot of cartilage in the upper ear so you have a lot to choose from. When getting your ears pierced, most piercers will prefer to make a mark on your skin so you can make sure about the placement before anything permanent is done.
Other medical complications from high ear piercing/ear cartilage piercing include: allergic reactions to earrings, scarring and pull-through tears of the ear, and two medical conditions called pyogenic granuloma and keloid formation.
Yes they do, but they really shouldn’t. They only use piercing guns, which are not recommended even for lobe piercings but definitely shouldn’t be used on cartilage.
According to Healthline, “cartilage piercings typically take anywhere from 4 to 12 months to heal completely.” Even if your piercing looks like it has healed, it is important that you wait until you‘re sure it’s fully healed before you even think about changing it.
A piercing is essentially an open wound. An earlobe piercing usually takes six to eight weeks to heal. Cartilage piercings, which take place on the harder part of your ear, generally take longer to heal and can be more prone to infection.
