The Daith Piercing

The Daith Piercing is a discrete and delicate piercing located in the ear cartilage. The name comes from the Irish origin boy name Daith, which should be the diminutive of Daibhidh: beloved. The first piercer known to have performed this was is Erik Dakota in California and some sources affirm that the name took its origins from the Hebrew word da’at.

That’s a beautiful reference and original name for a piercing. If you need to get one done in Ireland, maybe that's the one!

Due to its location in the ear the Daith Piercing is difficult to perform - another reason to use a professional. At The Black Hat Tattoo we always seek for the best option on your ear to allow a safe healing process and a comfortable piercing experience. Contact our amazing piercer team for assistance.

Ear Cartilage piercing takes 3 to 9 months to heal in normal conditions. Don’t rush it as a jewellery change too soon could lead to infection. Avoid using a dirty phone that might lead to infections during the healing process. Make sure your phone is clean or make use of earphones.

During the healing process it is important that you keep contact with your piercer and/or piercing studio. If you have any doubt or questions, or if you feel discomfort, irritation or any other symptoms that do not seem normal, your piercer is the person skilled to help you during your healing process.

The piercers at The Black Hat Tattoo guarantee that they have undertaken appropriate training with an experienced mentor and that they respect the code of ethics of the piercing industry.
