We do a lot of Tragus piercings at Modify and we love it. (I know I know we say that about almost every piercing but its hard not to love adding a little extra sparkle to someones life).
There are a lot of different options for fresh tragus piercings and even more so for healed ones.
At Modify we don't pierce with rings to begin with but that doesn't mean you can't get a ring in when its healed. Many rings can be way to big during the healing stage and create lots more drama than needed. We start with a 'stud' to begin with. Usually a labret post or a barbell.
We tend to use labret posts the most for healing as the flat disk on the back tends to work nicely with the anatomy but ball backings are perfectly fine too!
Everyone's tragus will be a different size or shape and so far we have yet to see a tragus that is to small or to large to pierce. We get many people coming in saying they think their tragus but that has yet to be the case.
Today I thought we would share a few tragus piercings we have done and hopefully inspire you to take the plunge!
We haven't posted for awhile (again) and this post is (again) about daith piercings!
So recently there has been an article claiming some big things from this little piercing.
What is the article claiming? Migraine relief.
In the piercing industry, there have always been myths and caution tales of certain piercings. Tragus piercings can cause deafness (NOPE!). Eyebrow piercings can paralyze your face. (WRONG!).
The new myth is daith piercings can cure migraines.
I would like to start that all of these myths could happen, but if they do, it is SO rare I have NEVER met a piercer that has met a piercer THAT has met a piercer that knew of someone that this happened to. Sure, bad infection could play a part in the negative aspects of these myths but that could happen from any cut or scrape a person receives.
So.... CAN daiths cure or help migraines?
Snopes says its unproven, and we are very much on side with that.
There is no hard evidence either way to suggests daiths are a magical cure for migraines or are not. For someone that has searched high and low for relief and tried every trick in the book, there is no harm trying a daith piercing for this but we wouldn't promote this piercing as doing so.
We love daith piercings. If you want to try it for migraine relief, we are happy to do it. We don't guarantee any form of relief but we do guarantee you will leave with a super rad piercing that has a lot of fun and fantastic jewellery to go in it.
Its been awhile since we posted last, so here are some fun daiths Suzanne got to do!

We would like to thank everyone for their amazing feedback with our survey. It was amazingly helpful and we are working on many of the issues being raised.
The most common issue was jewellery in stock.
This is not just an issue for yourself but also us. Since our transition over to only using brands like Anatometal and Neometal for basics, we have found keeping jewellery in stock is harder than it was when we were ordering through Australian companies.
The main reasons for this is as follows:
- the time it takes for them to make it since all gems are set by hand, everything is hand polished to a mirror finish ect.
Where Australian companies order in from china and are just re-branding and re-selling the product, companies like Anatometal and Neometal make their jewellery in their own factories in America and spend that extra time making sure all the jewellery is up to the quality we have come to expect and love from them.
- They are currently very busy with orders not just from us, but from many other studios all over the world
This is a main problem currently, even when we are placing small or large orders, weekly or even every few days, our orders are being put behind the last studio to place an order. So while it may not actually take 6 weeks to make our order, it may be in the queue for 3 or 4 of those weeks (then add about a week for shipping too).
We are looking at expanding to a few other companies that work with implant grade materials (there are not many unfortunately)
as well to help with having a larger supply of basics in stock so we can focus on getting a larger range of more new and exciting styles in.
We would like to thank everyone for their continued business and support.
