In the world of ear piercings, the daith piercing stands out as a unique and eye-catching addition to any ear stack. Nestled in the innermost fold of the ear's cartilage, the daith piercing has gained popularity for its distinctive placement and potential to enhance personal style. Whether you prefer a dramatic gold hoop or an understated gold or pearl stud, a daith piercing has the power to elevate your overall look. In this guide, we'll explore everything you need to know about daith piercings, from aftercare advice to style tips.

What is a daith piercing?

A daith piercing is a type of cartilage piercing that is located in the innermost fold of the ear, known as the "daith." The daith is the small ridge of cartilage just above the ear canal opening. This piercing involves creating a hole through this area, and the gold jewellery is typically inserted through the pierced hole.

Where is a daith piercing?

The daith piercing is situated in the inner curve of the ear, providing a unique and distinctive appearance.

How painful is a daith piercing?

Getting a daith piercing can be a bit of a twinge because of that thick cartilage, but hey, it's not winning the award for the most painful piercing. If you've already braved a conch piercing, the daith won't be as bad – just a tad less ouch!
