What is tragus piercing?

Tragus piercing is a type of ear piercing that is done in the ear cartilage in front of the ear canal. It is also called a Tragus Piercing. The name comes from the Latin word Tragus which means a triangular piece of land. It is the triangular piece of cartilage that protrudes out from the side of the head just in front of the ear canal.

It is one of the most common types of piercings. It goes through the tragus, which is the small flap that extends outward from the opening of the ear canal. Tragus piercings can be done in many different locations on the ear and heal in 4-6 months.

How to take out double tragus piercing?

Double tragus is a big commitment so make sure you are comfortable with your decision. Once you have taken the decision, you can easily get it out. If you have your friend’s help, ask him to grab hold of the ring on one side and slightly pull it towards the outside of your ear. This is so that the earring does not injure your ear in any way.

In case you are able and comfortable, take the ring out your own. Make sure that you have a good grip and hold it between your thumb and forefinger and then gently tug on it. The skin should come out with the ring, leaving behind a small hole. Clean it with cotton dipped in soap and warm water.
