Helix Piercing

The helix piercing is one of the best-known and most popular Ear Piercing, along with the Tragus Piercing. This trendy piercing is pierced on the upper, outer edge of the pinna and can be decorated with various pieces of piercing jewellery. The popular piercing is worn by both men and women.

We have a wide range of beautiful helix and tragus Jewelry in our shop, with which the ear can be optimally emphasised. Plain Labret Piercing or Barbell Piercing give the wearer a discreet yet beautiful look. More unusual piercing jewellery in various colours and designs draw all eyes to the ear and emphasise your personality. No matter which style you prefer, we have the right Helix jewellery for you.

In this guide, we provide you with all the important information about helix piercing. Here you will be informed extensively about topics such as piercing, care and jewellery.

Helix types

Besides the classic helix piercing, there are also several other helix variations. The Anti-Helix, also called Forward Helix, can be found opposite the Helix Piercing. This variant is pierced on the upper edge of the auricle near the face.

Interesting looks can be created with the double helix piercing or the triple helix. Here, two or three helix piercings are placed directly next to each other or under each other.

A low helix is a lower helix piercing that is placed in the middle of the ear edge.

The Industrial Barbell Piercing is nothing else than two opposite helix piercings connected with a long barbell bar.

Helix piercing jewellery

Different types of piercing jewellery can be used for the Helix Piercing. Piercing Ring like CBR Piercing rings, Segmentring Piercing Clicker Piercing or Horseshoe Piercing are very popular with Helix wearers. But also Labret Piercing or Barbell Piercing with different motives are popular Helix jewellery.

Helix Ring usually have a diameter of about 8 - 10 mm and a bar thickness of 1.2 mm - 1.6 mm. Helix plugs also have a bar thickness of about 1.2 mm - 1.6 mm, while the bar length often varies between 6 mm - 10 mm.

The piercing can be decorated with different designs like snakes or flowers. Studs with dangling pendants in a butterfly or jellyfish motive emphasise individuality.

A special look is created with a spiral twist piercing ring. The spiral ring snakes around the edge of the ear and nestles around the helix.

Segmental clickers with several crystal-studded rows give you an elegant look. Helix CBR rings with opal beads in different colours make the ear shine. Horseshoe rings with beads in different styles also accentuate the ear.

A special Helix jewellery consists of two pieces of piercing jewellery with a connecting chain. The piercings are inserted into the helix and into the earlobe respectively. The chain between the two piercing points creates an extraordinary look. The connecting chain is available in various styles. Helix studs with long, dangling chains and pendants that are not connected to the earlobe offer a similar piercing look.

Those who like it a little plainer also get their money's worth. Simple rings and piercings without any motives or pendants are suitable here. These provide a discreet but beautiful look.

Popular materials for Helix ear jewellery are without a doubt the high-quality metals Titanium Piercing, 14 carat Gold Piercing and Surgical Steel Piercing. Titanium helix piercings are suitable as first-time jewellery and for allergy sufferers due to their high compatibility. 14 carat gold helix piercings convince with the high quality of the precious metal and the elegant and timeless piercing look. In our shop you will find many labret piercings and CBR Piercing rings made of 14 carat gold. Helix piercings made of surgical steel are inexpensive and yet offer many advantages. The robust metal is very durable and does not discolour. In addition, Bioflex bar in combination with metal attachments are also very popular, as they offer a high level of wearing comfort.

With our Fake Piercing, you can try out the look of a helix piercing at your leisure before you decide to have it pierced. This way you can decide beforehand whether you like the look of the piercing or not. Our Ear Cuff Piercing and Ear Climbers with their unusual designs are particularly suitable for this. They are attached to the edge of the ear and offer a perfect fit without slipping.

Pricking

A helix should only be pierced in a professional piercing studio by competent piercers. Under no circumstances should this cartilage piercing be shot with an ear gun, as this risks shattering the cartilage tissue.

The helix piercing can be pierced on the right or left ear, depending on your preference. Helix Piercing can of course also be pierced on both ears.

The piercer will first disinfect the area generously and then mark the puncture sites. As soon as you are satisfied with the placement, the piercing can begin. The piercer will pierce the marked areas quickly and precisely with a hollow needle or an indwelling vein cannula. Then the jewellery, usually a Straight Barbell Piercing, is inserted. The piercer will first insert a slightly longer bar as initial jewellery to allow enough room for initial swelling. After the swelling has subsided, the piercer will change the long bar for a shorter bar.

When piercing a helix piercing, spectacle wearers should make sure that the new piercing does not sit directly on the spectacles. Together with the piercer, you should pay special attention to the correct positioning of the helix piercing.

The helix can also be punched. In contrast to piercing, the cartilage tissue is not displaced but punched out and completely removed. With this method, the healing time is much shorter and there is no pressure pain from the displaced ear cartilage. On the other hand, punching is a little more expensive and the piercing hole cannot grow back together. If you do not want to wear a helix piercing any more, you will have to live with this hole.

The pain of a helix piercing is somewhat greater due to the cartilage tissue. Everyone has a different sense of pain, but according to experience reports, the helix piercing is one of the more painful piercings for most people. Therefore, you should be prepared for a painful piercing. However, the greatest pain should be over in a few seconds, as the piercing usually does not take long.

The cost of a helix piercing depends on various factors such as the studio and the region. On average, a Helix will cost around €30 to €80.

Care and healing

The healing time of a pierced helix piercing is relatively long, about 6 - 9 months. This is due to the thick cartilage tissue at the helix site. A pierced helix takes much less time to heal, about 2 - 3 months.

The new helix piercing should only be touched during care. The hands must always be disinfected so that no germs get into the piercing canal. Care should take place twice a day for the first few weeks. The care products recommended by the piercer should be used.

People who wear glasses must be especially careful when having a helix Piercings. Glasses must always be put on and taken off carefully so as not to bump against the helix piercing.

It is also important to be careful when putting on and taking off clothing. Dressing too quickly or too roughly can cause the clothing to become tangled with the Helix ear jewellery.

The hair should not be coloured for at least 6 - 8 weeks after stitching, as the dyes contain aggressive chemicals. These can attack the piercing wound when the hair is rinsed out. In general, you should also wear your hair in such a way that it does not get caught in the piercing jewellery.

Visiting swimming pools and saunas as well as doing sports activities should be avoided during the first weeks. Bathing is also not recommended during this time. Instead, showering is more suitable in the period after the piercing. When showering, only mild and PH-neutral shampoos should be used so as not to irritate the piercing wound.

After piercing, you should also avoid sleeping on the pierced ear. If only one ear is pierced, you can simply sleep on the other ear. If both ears are pierced at the same time, a neck pillow can help. You can lie down with your ear in the hollow of the neck pillow to protect the piercing wound.

When using the telephone, you should always disinfect the telephone or mobile phone beforehand. This will prevent pathogens from entering the piercing canal.

The jewellery should only be changed after the wound has healed completely.

Risks

A helix piercing also carries certain risks. With cartilage piercings, wild flesh forms faster and more frequently than with other types of piercings. Such hardenings around the helix look unattractive and can quickly make the joy of the new Jewelry disappear. To avoid this, the piercer's care recommendations should always be followed to the letter.

The poor blood supply to the cartilage tissue results in a longer healing phase during which inflammation can occur. Signs such as yellow or green pus, throbbing pain as well as strong reddening can announce such an inflammation. As soon as an infection is suspected, the piercer or the doctor should be consulted as soon as possible. In addition, the jewellery must not be removed in the case of an inflammation, as otherwise the infection can encapsulate.

Another risk of helix piercing is the pressure pain that can occur after piercing. This pain is caused by the ear cartilage being displaced to make room for the jewellery. To avoid this pressure pain, the helix can also be punched. When punching, this pain does not occur because the ear cartilage is not displaced but punched out.

Initial swelling or bruising can also occur with the helix. A good piercer will usually pierce so skilfully that this rarely happens. If your own helix is swollen or a bruise forms around the piercing, careful cooling of the area can help.
