A daith piercing is a perforation of the horizontal bridge of the upper auricle.
This method requires an especially small ball closure ring or a barbell.
Due to the small surface area, this is not an easy piercing to execute.
Daith and rook piercings are often confused.
A daith piercing will be different for each individual ear, and therefore its placement will vary in each case.
A daith piercing can take between 4 and 8 months to heal completely, rarely longer. Like other external piercings, in the first three weeks it should be cleaned with ProntoLind spray twice a day, and then coated with ProntoLind gel. It is important to wash your hands before touching the pierced area and the jewelry itself. By caring for the piercing in the correct manner and with the proper materials, you can do a great deal to prevent the onset of proud flesh.
Disinfectant solutions containing alcohol or chlorine should be avoided.
