How Much Does It Cost
Obviously enough, the cost of your piercing is going to depend a lot on which one you choose. But we can look at a range of some of these trends and go from there.
A majority of the trends happening today are creative ear piercing placements like conch, forward helix, and so on. Random and fun spots you wouldn’t think to pierce until it became trendy!
So if you’re looking at one of these, you will literally be looking at any price point from $30 to $100, with a conch being on the lower end of the range.
Helix piercings are a little bit tougher when it comes to placement, so they do charge at the higher end of the spectrum for those! But in general, you’re going to be paying prices based on geographical location and piercer expertise.
If you’re in the suburbs around a big city, you’ll likely pay cheaper prices than those listed at the shops in the major city. And if you go to a piercer that’s been in the game for a long time and is really great at what they do, you might be paying a little more.
Some of the other piercings trending right now like the rook and daith are sitting in the $30 to $80 range, with the same factors taken into consideration.
How Much Do Cute Ear Piercings Hurt?
None of these trending piercings are really at the top of the pain scale! Ones like the rook and daith start getting pretty high up there, but you’re not looking at any major pain-inducing processes here!
How To Get Your Ears Pierced & Not Get Infected
Ultimately, the answer will always be the same: wash your hands before you touch it, and clean it twice a day with saline solution. Keeping any piercing clean is the key to prevent it from being infected, and keeping it safe from snagging will always help it heal faster too. Wherever you end up pierced, protect it while you sleep and be mindful during the day.
With some piercings like on the nose, it’s recommended to sleep with a bandaid over it. While that’s not super necessary with every piercing you get, especially ear piercings, there are some precautions to keep in mind while you rest! It’s easy to roll over onto the side of your head with a new piercing, so if you can do anything to prevent that, it would leave your piercing unbothered through the night, helping the healing process.
What Does The Scar Look Like
This question is best answered on a piercing by piercing basis, but to cover the basics: anything on the ear you don’t need to worry about, unless there is a great deal of pulling and snagging. Stretching the piercing is much easier to do when it’s still fresh and new, and this is what produces the most scarring, so you’ll want to be extra careful during this period.
The best thing you can do is to go above and beyond caring for it while it’s healing to prevent any stretching that will leave a worse scar.
