Daith Piercings and Migraines
Many of you may have heard about how a daith piercing can cure migraines. We are sorry to be the bearer of bad news but there is no scientific evidence to support these claims and the research that has been done attributes any relief from migraines as being placebo effect. Having said that, some people do claim that a daith piercing has given them some relief (there is an acupressure point in that location which might be the reason) but be mindful that this might not be the case for you.
How much does a Daith Piercing hurt?
Everyone's pain tolerance is different but most agree that it is more painful than the earlobes and more uncomfortable than some of the other cartilage piercings due to the awkward location of the piercing.
How long does a Daith Piercing take to heal?
Just like the pain situation everyone is different when it comes to healing times for piercings. Being a cartilage piercing daith piercings take approximately 4 months to heal with general overall good care for the piercing (good aftercare regime, hygiene and avoiding sleeping on it and/or bumping it.
Suitable jewellery types for Daith Piercings
Jewellery for this type of piercing is between the body jewellery rings and curved bars. We have such a wide selection of jewellery within these two types from jewelled hinged segment rings to simpler traditional micro bananabells.
- Rings - Ball closure rings, Continuous Rings, Circular Barbells and our personal favourite, Hinged Segment Rings. Rings are the current go to jewellery type for daith piercings, the rings accentuating the curvature of the various parts of the ear.
- Curved Bars - Micro Bananabells, Conebells. Curved bars are more subtle with the two balls (or attachments) visible.
