Also, what size hoop fits a conch piercing?
Standard conch jewelry hoops have a diameter of 3/8 inch to 1/2 inch or 10 to 12 mm. The size range provides material to fit comfortably in most conch piercings. You should use 10 to 12 mm hoops to fill daith, cartilage, or lobe piercings snugly.
Just so, what jewelry do they pierce a conch with?
Flat back stud earrings and barbells are ideal for inner conch piercings due to their location. Flat back studs, captive rings, circular barbells, hoop earrings, and curved barbells can be used for outer conch piercings due to their proximity to the edge of the ear.
Can you get a hoop conch piercing right away?
But a hoop generally isn’t used during the initial piercing and while you can certainly change from a stud to a hoop later on, there’s going to be a long waiting period in between. “Be sure it’s fully healed first, or you will end up with bumps from irritation,” Lopez revealed.
With a conch piercing, there is actually less risk of rejection than with other cartilage piercings, as the hole goes clean through the ear. However, there is the usual risk of infection as with any piercing. To avoid infections, just be sure to clean the piercing consistently.
“Make sure it is done in the most sterile fashion possible and kept clean and infection-free,” advises Bard. If you‘re a side-sleeper, you‘ll have to avoid sleeping on the side of the piercing until it’s fully healed. Both experts agree that sleeping on the piercing could cause irritation and delay the healing process.
Grab the jewelry by ring with the index and thumb of one hand. Grab the bead or ball with the index and thumb of the other hand. Pull and apply force in opposite directions causing the tension that the ring has on the ball or bead to break. Once the ball or bead is free, rotate the jewelry out.
You can tell that the cartilage in the conch is thicker and harder than most other parts of your ear. This means the piercing is going to be more painful than most other areas.
The genitals are by far the most sensitive ears of our bodies, so no one needs to convince you that it’ll be the most painful piercing you can ever get.
