Daith Piercing

Daith piercing is an ear cartilage piercing done on the innermost fold of the cartilage. As such, Daith piercing sits near the ear canal. This is a relatively small area so Daith piercings can’t accommodate large or heavy jewelry. Instead, it is perfect for those looking for a beautiful yet a discreet ear piercing. Just like other ear cartilage piercings, it is a bit sensitive so this is why it’s important to find an experienced piercer to perform it. Typically, a Daith piercing is done with a curved needle, because this is the best way to go in such a small area of cartilage.

For this reason, typical jewelry for Daith piercing is curved jewelry, such as rings, be it Captive Bead Rings, Screwball rings, Fixed rings or even Seamless and Segment rings. Sometimes, jewelry for Daith piercing is done in distinctive shapes, such as heart-shaped jewelry or the one in the flower, moon or other shapes. Some people opt to wear a small circular barbell in their Daith piercing, but this is a rare choice. It is important to wear curved jewelry in your Daith piercing if you are pierced with a curved needle. If the needle used for your Daith piercing is straight, you will encounter slight discomfort if you wear curved jewelry.
