Article: Tragus piercing
A tragus piercing is placed in the small area of cartilage that partially covers the ear canal. Anatomically, the ear is made up of cartilage and skin. While fleshy earlobes continue to be popular with traditional piercing enthusiasts, cartilage areas like the tragus may attract those looking for something a little different than already pierced earlobes.
Tragus piercings first became popular in the late '80s and early '90s and have continued to grow in popularity ever since. A tragus piercing is a great way to add a personal touch to your style, especially when paired with other earrings. However, it is important that you choose an experienced piercer and practice proper care to avoid infections and other complications.
While tragus piercings usually consist of a small ball or stud, there are also other options such as diamonds or other gemstones. Another advantage of tragus piercings is that they are discreet and can be easily hidden if you wish.
In addition to tragus piercings, there are many other types of piercings that are popular such as belly button, christina, nose, ear, tongue, nipple, venison and intimate piercings. If you decide to get a piercing, it is important to research carefully and choose an experienced piercer to ensure it is done correctly and proper care is given afterwards.
