Why using a piercing gun for cartilage is harmful.

Piercing the cartilage such as tragus, daith, or conch, has been recently getting more popular. Shops that pierce the ear lobes with piercing guns now also perform these types of cartilage piercings in the same way. They do this mostly out of lack of knowledge, and wanting to make more money, without thought for the consequences on the customer.

Performing cartilage piercings with a gun is never as effective as using a needle, because using a gun would destroy and shred the surrounding tissue, whereas a needle would create a clean cut. So using a gun would create a variety of problems during the healing process.


The studs with a traditional closure or butterfly, are quite short and can not compensate for any swelling which occurs on fresh cartilage piercings. Jewelry that are specially made for piercing, are longer to make space for swelling. They are then changed to shorter ones after the piercing has fully healed.

Piercing with a gun is not even ideal for regular earlobes, however with proper equipment and hygiene, it can be done. There are some cases where the speed of spring-loaded guns have caused neurological problems, especially with children. Guns that work with pressure might be a better alternative. Overall, when piercing the cartilage go to a professional piercing studio that uses needle techniques and safe equipment.
