Forward Helix Piercing

Forward Helix Piercing
Sam Smith

A forward helix piercing is such a trendy and stylish ear piercing! It’s a type of piercing that goes through the small ridge of cartilage at the front of the ear, just above the Tragus and below the outer rim of the ear. The piercing process involves using a small gauge needle to create a hole in the cartilage, and then inserting a beautiful piece of jewellery, initially a stud, into the hole.

Unlike other cartilage piercings, a forward helix piercing can take several months to fully heal, and requires careful aftercare to avoid infection or other complications. So be sure to choose a reputable piercer and follow their instructions for cleaning and caring for your new piercing.

If you fancy adding some edge and personality to your look, this piercing is the one for you. When pierced, the end result looks amazing, and you can even alter the positioning depending on your desired look and ear anatomy. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a bold and exciting piercing option.
