DAITH PIERCING PROCEDURE

  • It's crucial to ensure that your ear structure is suitable for a daith piercing, as not everyone's ear can accommodate this type of piercing.
  • The piercer will then clean your ear thoroughly & mark the exact spot where the piercing will be made.
  • A sterilized, sharp, hollow needle is used for the piercing. This is a more precise and less traumatic method than using a piercing gun, especially for the thick cartilage of the daith.
  • Once the needle has gone through, the chosen jewelry is immediately inserted into the hole.

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS FOR DAITH PIERCING

  • Clean your Daith Piercing twice a day – once in the morning and once in the evening. Consistency is key to prevent infection and promote healing.
  • Soak a sterile gauze pad with the saline solution & gently press it against your daith piercing and hold it there for a few minutes. - Be sure to follow these instructions until your daith piercing is completely healed.
  • Keep the Daith pierced area dry to prevent any infections.
