Cartilage Piercing: Everything You Need To Know Before You Get 
Of the types of body modifications and piercings available currently in the market, the most popular one other than ear lobe piercing is nothing but cartilage piercing. The former might be something that you are more used to with, but the latter is now quite in trend. And, this trend has grown so much due to the abundance of beautiful handmade earrings.
So, when you have made up your mind about getting a piercing done, the first thing you would do is research it. Making your job easy, we have prepared a list of things that you need to know about cartilage piercing.
1. Being Nervous Is Normal
If you feel like your heart is beating too fast and you already have sweaty palms. You can just breathe your nervousness out. Trust me, it is totally okay to feel anxious as you know that you are about to have a tiny hole in a part of your body. You might also have a good lot of questions racing your mind such as if you are going to get yourself pierced from the nearest parlour or are you going to get an appointment with someone who has a good reputation? But we would suggest that it is better to opt for a professional who uses a needle instead of a piercing gun as the usage of a piercing gun would be quite traumatic for someone who has never undergone any piercing.
2. There Might Be No Initial Pain
Yes, if the professional you choose uses a needle, you might feel that there is not much pain. Although, if you use a piercing gun, then things might be a lot different. Also, keep in mind that the site of piercing might swell. And it will definitely heal. So, you don’t need to worry if you see your newly pierced area getting swelled up.
3. It Will Take A While To Heal
Earlobe piercing and cartilage piercing are two entirely different things although, they seem to be similar. The earlobes have a good amount of blood flowing through them. So, when you take medications for earlobe piercing, they reach your earlobes through the bloodstream. On the other hand, the cartilage does not have access to blood, so you will have to be patient and wait for a while to let it heal itself. Also, make sure to keep the area clean.
4. You Need To Keep It Clean
Yes, you need to keep the pierced cartilage area clean. But, that does not mean that cleaning it with soap and water will do. You need to follow strict instructions and clean your newly pierced area with a saline solution that your professional piercer has provided you with. And, if your piercer has not provided you with a solution, do not worry as you will get that easily at a pharmacy.
5. Once You Heal, You Are Good To Go
So, finally, you have made it after going through different stages of struggles. Yes, your cartilage piercing has healed ultimately. You might feel quite happy about it and also a bit accomplished. You might be standing in front of the mirror more often and for longer durations and wondering what kind of homemade earrings or any other sort of jewellery would fit it the best.
