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!
