Fake Daith piercing

Fake Daith piercing

A Daith piercing is a type of surface piercing on the ear that pierces the cartilage just below the tragus. It can be done with a needle but is most often done with a straight piece of jewellery that goes through from one side to the other. Such piercings are sometimes mistakenly called “Daith piercings.” However, they are not pierced completely through. Daith piercings can take between 6 and 10 months to heal because there is more tissue in this area than in other areas of the ear; it takes longer for tissue to heal in these areas. The word “Daith” is derived from “tearduct”.

A Daith piercing is a surface piercing that pierces the cartilage just below the tragus (the little bump or lump on the outside corner of the ear). A Daith piercing is sometimes also called a “Daith piercing” or “tragus piercing”. It can be done with a needle, but it is most often done with a straight piece of jewellery that goes through from one side to the other.

Daith piercings are also sometimes mistakenly called “tragus piercings” or “Daith piercings”. However, they are not pierced completely through. A Daith piercing is a surface piercing and pierces the cartilage just below the tragus.

The cartilage in this area of the ear can be pierced with a needle or with a small, straight jewellery piece (such as barbell or stud) that goes through from one side to the other. This type of piercing takes six to ten months to heal because there is more tissue in this area than in other areas of the ear, so it takes longer for tissue to heal here.

Most Daith piercings are done on the outer ear. These piercings will go through the cartilage, which is the dividing chain of cartilage in the ear and is attached to your skull. The piercing can be anywhere from 2-3 millimetres above or below the cartilage line. Some people have their Daith pierced very close to the end of the ear; others have it farther down, usually about 1/2-1 inch (3-2 cm) away from their actual tragus, depending on where they feel comfortable with it.

How do you use fake piercings?


To use fake piercings such as Daith piercing, first, visualize your look by looking at yourself in front of a mirror. Choose the jewellery you want to use. The most common type of jewellery used for Daith piercing is single-flared metal barbells, but other jewellery types can also be used, including fake gauges.

Use a paper clip to bend some of the needles off, since it may be too thick. Use scissors to cut the needle from about two inches (5 cm) away from the very tip of the needle, all the way up until you feel it being resisted and stopping cutting by friction between the clip and the needle. If you cut it too close, you may need to use a tool such as a utility knife or tweezers to remove the remaining section of the needle.

Wrap the jewellery with gauze and apply pressure to the end. Step back and look at how far up your ear you are piercing when wearing gauze over it. Use the same paper clip to bend off another section of a needle, all the way up until you feel it being resisted and stopping by friction between the clip and the needle; again, if needed, use a tool such as tweezers or knife for removal of the remaining section of needle.

Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water following all necessary precautions (see below).
