Daith Piercings At Stick Tattoo
At Stick Tattoo, we continue to have success with daith piercings; a piercing that has much success in offering relief for migraines and headaches. The piercing is located in the inner cartilage section of the ear which runs through an identified acupuncture pressure point. Having the piercing done on the same side as most migraines occur seems to have an enormous impact on the occurrence of migraines.

I got the daith ear piercing on New Year’s Eve. That was the best thing I have done! I have not had a migraine since. I highly recommend it.

Harmony did a great job with my daith piercing yesterday, and it feels great today. I walked into the shop with a migraine, and walked out without one. I sure hope it continues.

Many customers receive the daith piercing purely for the look and appearance. Located directly in the inner cartilage of your ear, the various jewelry options offered for the piercing attract additional demand for the piercing.

After care and healing of the Daith Piercing
With any body piercing, proper after care is encouraged, and the daith piercing is no exception. The healing process can actually take a little longer and be more complicated than most other piercings. Due to its location within the ear, the daith piercing can serve as a magnet for dirt and germs, so you will want to ensure you clean it properly a few times a day, preferably with specific piercing after care spray.
We also recommend that the first week – two weeks after the piercing that you limit contact with make-up, hair spray, tanning lotion, or perfumes to allow the piercing to heal properly.
While each individual is different in retrospect to healing, on average, your piercing will be swollen, with possible redness and discomfort to touch for the initial 4-5 days following the piercing. The following two weeks will then become less painful, but still have tenderness to the area. It will then take 3-4 months of proper cleaning and healing before the daith piercing is completely healed. Please do not remove the jewelry during this time period as it may close or damage the piercing.
Daily Care Routine for Daith Piercings
- Do not touch your piercing unless you are cleaning it. Unwashed hands carry bacteria and your piercing is a point where these bacteria can penetrate below your skin and easily cause an infection.
- While healing, your daith piercing will need to be cleaned once daily. By cleaning too frequently, you may harm your piercing.
- You will need to use an antibacterial soap that contains either chloroxylenol or triclosan
Questions in the healing of Daith Piercings
Discharge or Pus
Slight discharge and pussing immediately following the daith piercing is common. But you will want to pay close attention to ensure a possible infection or allergic reaction does not occur. Should discharge or pussing occur, please contact us for questions or concerns. Should the discharge be accompanied by a fever, increased itching, or discharge, please seek medical attention for a possible ear infection.
Another common instance with body piercing is the appearance of Keloids, a puffy scar that forms often with soft or thin skin, where the body is often countering the piercing by scaring rather than healing. Pressure Dressings, Tea Tree Oil, or cortisone injections can help with addressing keloids.
