What is a Daith Piercing?



Location: Ear, Daith
Jewellery: Ring, Curved Barbell
Healing: 3 to 9 months

A daith piercing is a perforation of the ear cartilage just above the entrance to the ear canal. Most ears have a pierceable piece of cartilage at the top of the canal, although some people will find their anatomy does not allow for a daith piercing to be performed as the piece of cartilage may be too small. If a confident piercer completes this style it can look brilliant.

More About Daith Piercing

One of the more unusual ear piercings, a daith piercing certainly canít be mistaken for anything else. As well as being unusual, it is surprisingly subtle and attractive because the ear seems to almost frame the jewellery, which looks absolutely brilliant. While other cartilage piercings are often troublesome to heal, the daith piercings are more likely to heal without a hitch thanks to their unique position within the bowl of the ear, giving it a greater level of protection even while you sleep.

Daith Piercings & Migraines

In recent months there has been a huge focus on whether the Daith piercing can alleviate migraines and headaches. There is plenty of anecdotal evidence from customers which support this theory with many accounts of migraines being far less frequent or intense.

Whilst the idea of Daith piercings helping with migraines is still based on customer reviews and has not been fully scientifically tested, there is a very plausible medical explanation; this speculation is based upon the use of acupuncture, where fine needles are passed through certain pressure points on the body to aid with medical conditions. One of the pressure points for the head is actually in the exact area where a Daith piercing is placed.

Even though there is still limited evidence that this piercing could actually help sufferers, with such a large amount of anecdotal evidence supporting them, many people think it is simply worth trying and enjoy the aesthetic effect of such an attractive piercing.
