Daith Piercing Jewellery
A daith piercing is an ear piercing that is located in the daith ear cartilage fold of the ear. This piercing has become very popular in recent years, amounting to being one of the most popular types of piercings which we perform at Blue Banana. Not only does a daith piercing give you the ability to accessorise your ear with more eye-catching accessories, it is also said to provide a range of health benefits due to its unique placement on the ear.
Daith Piercings Near Me
If you’ve done your research on ear cartilage piercings and have decided to settle with a daith, we wouldn’t blame you. This stunning cartilage piercing is a subtle, yet essential ear piercing if you’re looking to go all out with your ears. Unlike some standard piercings where you may be restricted to a singular type of barbell, we have a variety of options jewellery available including a daith piercing heart.
The daith piercing is placed at the root of the helix, using a curved needle to pass through the ear's innermost fold of cartilage to rest in the shell of the ear. Unfortunately, not everyone can have a daith piercing, as you must have well-developed cartilage in order to achieve a piercing with adequate depth.
This piercing can be slightly tricky to place correctly, so it's advisable to visit a piercer with plenty of experience in performing this particular piercing!
If you really have your heart set on a daith ear piercing, Blue Banana is the perfect place to get it done. With over 20 years of piercing experience and professionally qualified staff, we have the skills and knowledge to perform your piercing and provide answers to all your burning questions.
FAQs Some of the most common daith piercing info questions we receive are:
- What is the average daith piercing healing time?
- What is the daith piercing cost?
- Is daith piercing pain strong?
Some throbbing, swelling and bleeding is to be expected following a daith piercing, though if you experience any abnormal levels of pain or discomfort, it's important to seek medical attention immediately.

Daith Piercing Procedure
ID may be required
Wondering where to get your daith pierced? Use our store locator to find your local Blue Banana studio. You don’t need to book an appointment; you can simply show up to be pierced on the day.
Please ensure you have checked the age restrictions associated with a daith piercing. In a Blue Banana studio, the daith piercing age restriction is 16 (ID may be required) or 13 with parental consent from a parent or guardian who is present.
Once you’ve met your piercer, they will give you a quick consultation and briefing on your new daith piercing. Unfortunately, not everyone can have a daith piercing, as you must have well developed cartilage in order to achieve a piercing with adequate depth – this will be checked by your piercer.
The procedure itself involves a curved needle that the piercer will use to pierce through the daith ear cartilage. The piercing placement can be difficult to line up due to the almost internal placement. Make sure you are happy with the daith jewellery placement before you begin the procedure!
Daith Piercing Aftercare
Healing Time: 3-9 Months
Healing time can usually range from around 3-9 months. This, of course, differs from person to person and is dependent on how well you care for your piercing.
A key part of initial daith piercing care includes the avoidance of unnecessary knocking or pressure. This could include considering factors such as tying back longer hair, avoiding tight headwear and not wearing earphones or ear buds with a new daith piercing. Contact with cosmetics and hair products may irritate a fresh daith piercing, so we recommend avoiding these where possible.
When it comes to cleaning a daith piercing, it’s important to maintain good standards of hygiene and a stringent aftercare routine. Cleaning the piercing twice a day using a salt water solution (or Tea Tree Oil) and cotton balls will help to keep the area clean and free from fluid build up.
Maintaining general hygiene around the ear (such as removing ear wax) is essential while your new daith piercing is healing. If you properly look after and clean your piercing it may speed up the process.

Daith Piercing Jewellery
It’s pretty easy to get your hands on some awesome daith jewellery from Blue Banana. We have many types of daith body jewellery available including the following popular picks.
- Daith Heart Piercing Jewellery
- Daith Piercing Barbells
- Daith Ring Ear Jewellery
A very popular type of jewellery is a daith heart, mainly due to its cute look and overall snug fit. We’ve got a variety of sizes, materials and colours available to help decorate your daith piercing in a variety of different ways. Here are a few considerations when picking our daith jewellery:
- Size – everyone’s ears are different sizes, so make sure to pick daith jewellery that sits just right in your ear. Something too wide in diameter may not give such a snug fit.
- Material – piercing materials differ not only through their look but also how they could react to your skin. Some materials such as titanium are more suited to those who may suffer from allergic reaction skin irritations.
If you’re considering a new daith piercing, then it may be best to seek advice when it comes to picking the right size of piercing jewellery. When searching for a piece of jewellery make sure you know your measurements. We display the piercing jewellery measurements as Gauge first (displayed in millimetres) then Diameter/Length, e.g. 1.2mm x 8mm.
- Gauge – this is the thickness of the jewellery itself.
- Diameter – the width across the widest point of the jewellery for hoops and rings.
