Snug Piercing

A Snug piercing is a type of body piercing that is done in the ear’s inner cartilage about halfway down (also known as the anti-helix area).   Most Snug piercings are done horizontally, but can also be done vertically.  Since this is a cartilage piercing, it can be quite painful to endure, and can take a considerable time to heal completely.

A snug piercing can be easily done by using a body piercing kit, as long as the piercer has experience with cartilage piercings.  The type of jewelry most commonly worn in a snug piercing is a small gauge curved barbell or captive bead ring.  The healing time for a snug piercing is approximately 2 to 4 months.
