What type of earrings do you put in a cartilage piercing?

Seamless rings are great if you are looking for smaller and more delicate cartilage piercing jewelry. Barbells are longer, thicker earrings that are similar to studs. There are both straight and curved barbells, but straight barbells are far more common for cartilage piercings.

Subsequently, what can you not do with a cartilage piercing?

Avoid playing with the piercing.

While it is healing, avoid handling your cartilage piercing for any reason other than cleaning it. Turning or twisting the jewelry could cause an infection. The piercing should only be touched with freshly washed hands.

Consequently, can piercing your cartilage 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.

Accordingly, should I take my cartilage piercing out if it hurts?

It does take a long time to heal, so don’t stress if it’s still sore after months. And definitely DO NOT touch it or twist it around because the skin is trying to rebuild itself (it sticks to the jewelry) and if you move it it can either get infected or it can delay the healing process.
