Snug Piercing

Location: Ear, Antihelix
Jewellery: Curved Barbell, Ring
Healing: 3 to 9 Months Or Longer

The snug piercing goes through the same ridge as a rook piercing, but further away from the face where the antihelix is vertical, which is usually opposite the tragus. It is a difficult piercing to complete, and you may not even have an outcrop of cartilage to pierce in this location. If you do, it must be solid enough or prevent the piercing coming through behind the ear.
