Initial healing varies based on piercing placement and each person’s body.
The initial healing timeframe for earlobe piercings is generally between 6-8 weeks.
The initial healing timeframe for cartilage piercings ranges between 3-5 months. A full healing timeframe can take up to 6 months and a year.
After the initial healing timeframe, it is important for the health of your piercing that you pop into the store to have one of our piercers down-size the length of your post.
