The Daith Piercing is discrete and delicate piercing located in the Ear Cartilage. The Daith piercing name may come from the Irish origin boy name Daith which should be the diminutive of Daibhidh: beloved. The first piercer known to have performed it is Erik Dakota in California and some sources affirm that the name took its origins from the Hebrew word knowledge: da’at.
That’s a beautiful reference and original name for a piercing. If you need to get one done in Ireland, that’s maybe the one!
