Trends come and go like the ocean, and just like waves, these trends have their way of coming back but in a different wavelength. Ever since Beyonce ear piercings made the fashion waves, we just can’t help but be in awe and inevitably follow anything the fashion icon is doing – of course, still making it our own.
Cartilage piercing was on-trend throughout the eighties up to the new millennium’s style of fashion or that moment when Lindsay Lohan’s character in the Parent Trap decided to get her twin’s (also portrayed by her) ear pierced randomly just so they can switch roles! Truly, there are numerous moments where ear piercing was – and still is – a big deal in fashion. Today, pop icon and superstar Beyonce and almost every other attendees of the annual Coachella is spotted with cartilage piercings here and there that we want to get our hands, in this case, our ears, dirty for more accessories.
How to pierce your cartilage?
If there is one important detail if you are considering ear cartilage piercing is to look for a shop which caters and thinks of hygiene first. If you go to unsanitary shops who offer these kinds of services, you might get your ears infected. Since no one wants that to happen, look for shops with the assurance that you will get your money’s worth – and it might cost you. Furthermore, cartilage ear piercing is done by using a needle and not via a piercing gun. This means if the person doing the piercing starts pulling out his piercing gun, stop him or her and just walk out the door.

When can I change my cartilage piercing?
You can only change the design of the earring once it is completely healed. However, there are individuals who have a longer pain threshold. Whenever you decide to change the piercing, ensure you are quick because piercings sometimes close, especially if it is not completely healed.
