What is a Trident Piercing?

The trident piercing punctures the cartilage three times along the top curve of the ear and extends down to one puncture within the bottom cartilage.

This jewelry usually consists of one long straight barbell and one large curved barbell to ultimately form a trident shape.

Does a Trident Piercing Hurt?

Due to the multiple perforations, a Trident Piercing procedure may be painful for you.

The pain level depends on individual health conditions and several other factors

On a pain scale meter from level 1 (least painful) to level 10 (most painful), Trident Piercing is a 6.

The reason is obvious. There are multiple perforations involved during the procedure. That makes it more painful.

What is the Healing Time?

You may be concerned about the healing time after the procedure. If you want it to heal quickly, keep following the aftercare instructions.

Trident Piercing usually takes 6-8 months to heal if you properly follow the aftercare instructions.

In some cases, it may take up to a year due to the multiple perforations involved.
