Basic Ear Cartilage

A cartilage piercing is the second most common ear piercing seen today. Cartilage forms the transparent tissue of the upper part of the ear and is the only area other than lobes that can be legally pierced by a piercing gun. However, cartilage takes longer to hear than earlobes (at least 8-12 weeks) and because there is a limited blood supply to that area some of these piercings never heal properly.
