Ear Cartilage piercings are known to create small bumps when they heal in one side or sometimes both sides. Small bumps tend to form when the surface of the skin has been pushed away by the needle during piercing. In the Black Hat Tattoo, our piercer practices the compression technique after piercing to reduce your chances of forming a bump.
Ear Cartilage piercing takes 3 to 9 months to heal in normal conditions, don’t rush it as an unappropriate or too soon jewellery change could lead to infection. Avoid using dirty phone that might lead to infections during the healing process. Make sure your phone is clean or use headphones as much as you can.
