The rook piercing is one of the
coolest looking but more painful piercings available for your ear.
Basically it is situated overhead of the tragus and on the fold between
the rim and inner ear, part of the cartilage. Usually BCR’s and curved
barbells are the choice of jewellery, mainly because of where the
piercing is positioned. Only a small curved or circular piece of
jewellery will keep the rook comfortable.
Once your rook piercing has
fully healed and isn’t fighting infection, you can start browsing for
new jewellery. Your choices consist of curved barbells and BCR’s, it may
not sound like a lot but trust us when we say there are that many
different styles available you won’t know which one to pick.
