If you like ear piercings, the triple forward helix is trending big time. A helix piercing refers to the piercing of the helix, the upper ear cartilage.
GETTING A FORWARD HELIX PIERCING
You can get a single, double,or triple helix piercing as you see to the left. However, the piercer will advise you if the single, double, or triple helix piercing is right for you. Since the helix is a small area on your ear and everyone’s ear is different, it’s important to heed your piercers advice. When getting a helix piercing, you can choose between several pieces of jewelry. We are fans of straight barbels with a prong gem set in the front. The earring used to pierce the helix is la little longer than the piercing seems to need. This is to allow for any swelling and ease of cleaning. After the piercing heals you can change it out for a shorter stud.
- Flush the piercing once a day in the shower
- Apply anti-bacterial soap liberally to the piercing. We recommend Dr. Bronner’s Tea Tree Oil Castile Soap (see why below).
- Let the water run on the ear a few minutes. Be sure to rinse well to avoid build up.
- Sea Salt Soaks are a great idea for the lifetime of the piercing. If all is good, we recommend sticking to a couple times a week. Feel free to check out our blog for a sea salt soak recipe.
