Celebrities with their cartilage pierced

People who have their cartilage pierced please!? | Yahoo Answers

Yes it is true, however with rpoper care and maintenance, this won't happen. The worst that could happen is it could get infected, kill the cartilage, and you would be left with a hole big enough to fit your finer through, if it is stopped by then. If you take care of it, all you will be left with when you take it out is a pinhole the size of whatever jewelry you had in there. I had my ear cartilage pirced like 6 years ago, havent had a ring in it for like a year and a half, and i still have the whole, which is nice because i dont have to fuss over it anymore, and you cant see it when theres no earring in.

Keloid Complications with Cartilage Piercing | Livestrong.com

In some piercees, keloids are a hereditary medical condition. Piercees with close family members, such as parents or siblings, with keloids are most likely to keloid in connection with ear cartilage piercing. Piercing the ear cartilage, no matter the method, results in keloids around, inside or outside of the piercing location. Receiving a piercing with a sterilized needle from a professional body piercer that provides thorough aftercare guidelines decreases the possibility of keloid formation. The piercee, following the aftercare guidelines in addition to the professional procedure, may prevent or slow the formation of a keloid, yet this varies from piercee to piercee. Piercing guns and unprofessional tools cause additional trauma to the cartilage and lack of aftercare may aid in the growth of a keloid. Keloids form mostly at the back of the ear piercing, as this is where the piercing causes the most trauma to the skin.

A cartilage piercing can refer to any area of cartilage on the body with a perforation created for the purpose of wearing jewelry. The two most common areas with cartilage piercings are the ear and the nose. Many people outside of the body modification community often informally use the term "cartilage piercing" to refer a helix piercing. The cartilage ear piercing is known to be more sore than the lobe as in the cartilage there is less blood so it takes longer to heal.

Types of Ear Cartilage Piercings

  • Helix: The outer rim of cartilage on the ear, extending from just above the lobe to its apex and then curving down slightly to meet the head.[1]
    • Forward Helix: The area of the helix closest to the head; generally any piercing between the apex of the helix and where the helix joins the head.
    • Industrial: Two piercings joined by a single piece of jewelry, usually a barbell, commonly with one piercing in the helix and the other in the forward helix, though other multiple-piercing placements may still be termed industrials.
  • Antihelix: The raised ridge of cartilage between the helix and ear canal.
    • Rook: The upper ridge of cartilage of the antihelix; between the tragus and apex of the helix. For most people, a rook piercing through a prominent ridge of cartilage will give the jewelry a vertical appearance as the piercing goes from top to bottom of the surface.
    • Snug: The lower ridge of cartilage of the antihelix. A snug piercing also has a unique appearance as the cartilage is pierced from one side to the other, rather than from front to back.
  • Conch: Can refer to a piercing of either the inner or outer conch.
    • Inner Conch: The cup-shaped portion of the ear directly in front of the ear canal, used for capturing sound.
    • Outer Conch: The relatively flat area between the rim that forms the helix and the ridge that defines the antihelix.
  • Daith: The small flap of cartilage just above the ear canal. With a correctly placed daith, the entrance and exit holes will be unseen and the jewelry will appear to be coming out of the ear canal itself. It will rest in the inner conch.
  • Tragus: The small, thick flap of cartilage directly over the ear canal, connected to the head.
  • Antitragus: A small knub of cartilage just above the earlobe and across from the tragus.
  • California: A multi-piercing style where the ear is first pierced at the lobe and subsequent piercings are made, between 1/4" and 1/2" apart, up and around the cartilage.

Types of Nose Cartilage Piercings

  • Nostril: A piercing passing through the nostril on either side and ending in the inside of the nose.
    • High Nostril: A piercing placed further towards the top of the nose, much closer to the bone than a standard nostril piercing.
  • Nose Tip: A piercing that begins within either nostril and exits at the tip of the nose.
  • Nasallang: A set of three piercings connected by one piece of jewelry, usually a barbell. Both nostrils are pierced, as well as the septum. Depending on anatomy, the piercer, and the preference of the client, the septum piercing may or may not go through cartilage.
  • Septum: The piece of tissue in the middle of the nose separating the two nostrils. A septum piercing is often incorrectly regarded as a cartilage piercing. While some people do have septum piercings which pass through cartilage, most septum piercings pass through the small bit of tissue directly beneath the cartilage and above the skin.
