How much does it cost to get your daith pierced?
Piercing prices differ from one piercer to the next. Though the average price is around $70 (with a $40–$50 jewelry fee), some places are cheaper and some more expensive. What most piercers have in common is that they charge for the piercing, tissue cleaning, jewelry, and aftercare products- separately. For example, at my shop in Vancouver BC Canada we offer a range of items starting at $45 (piercing only) up to about $130 (daith with nostril).
Why are daith earrings so expensive?
It’s all about supply and demand. Although you can get your daith pierced at a whim in some states, it’s still not as common as other piercings. The fewer people clamouring for this piercing, the less expensive it is to maintain. Also, if you have any allergies to metals, your daith earrings will cost more than just a small gauge inlay jewelry.
How much does the piercing hurt?
No more than any other earlobe piercing! Your pain tolerance may vary depending on how experienced you are with piercings and what time of day it is when you get them done.
Are daith piercings dangerous?
No. Your ear is an organ, and it is designed for receiving and healing piercings. That being said, you should be sure to avoid getting your daith piercing in the same place as your tragus, helix, or anti-tragus piercing. Also, if you are prone to keloids or hypertrophic scars you should seek advice from your doctor before getting any new piercings.
How can I tell if my daith piercing is infected?
Go see a professional if you are unsure or have doubts about whether your daith piercing is infected. Infected piercings can range from redness to pus. If you’re unsure, contact your piercer or a doctor immediately.
What should I do before getting my daith pierced?
Make sure that you are in good physical health. This means getting your flu shot at the very least, and staying up to date on your tetanus booster shots if you have any doubts. Also, drink plenty of water and eat a hearty meal before the actual piercing. For some people, eating right and hydrating themselves minimizes the amount of pain they feel when getting their piercings done.
How much does a daith piercing cost?
The price depends on the area of your ear you want pierced, as each is unique. The price ranges from $45–$135.
What are daith piercings?
A daith piercing is an insertion through the cartilage of the ear lobe, called cartilage. The word “daith” comes from the Gaelic word for “ear”, and it is similar to a tragus piercing.
How are daith piercings done?
There are multiple methods used to perform this type of piercing, and they often vary by each piercer’s preference. The two most popular methods include placing the piercing through the cartilage using a skin punch or by making a small hole in the lobe with a jewelry needle. Other than this, your piercer can also decide to use any gauge they feel will look good on you (usually between 6-10 gauge depending on the area).
Daith piercings can be done in both left and right ears. There are many benefits to this piercing, including being able to have one piercing with both; however it is not recommended to mix and match piercings for aesthetic reasons. It is much easier to take care of and maintain one earlobe piercing compared to two different ones as well.
