How much does an anti-tragus piercing hurt?

    The anti-tragus is a part of your ear cartilage, so yes, piercing your anti-tragus can be painful. Think of it as a 5 or 6 out of 10 on the pain scaleand no more painful than any other cartilage piercing. If you’ve had another cartilage piercing, this will feel similar.

    What should I know about jewelry sizing for an anti-tragus piercing?

    Your anti-tragus will generally be pierced with a 16 gauge needle, so you’re going to want 16 gauge jewelry , which has a post that’s 1.2mm thick . The thicker post width prevents the hole from closing in the sturdier cartilage. However, sometimes your piercing will start to close up over time – in that case, you can wear 18 gauge jewels (1.0mm thick).

    🚫 Unless you want your piercing to close up though, you should avoid the standard 20 gauge (0.81mm thick) earrings that you typically wear in your earlobes.
