As it says above. I have had a helix piercing for a couple of years now and to be honest, it’s been a journey! It took nearly 2 years to fully heal and I found that my ears didn’t take too kindly to certain types of earrings. No matter how much I try, I can’t seem to get on with the types of earrings that are best for cartilage piercings. They have screws on the backs and the design on a long, thin pole that screws in from the front. I keep trying to put them in myself but I find my hands get really sweaty and warm and then I can’t get it to screw in. All of the piercings I’ve seen that are advertised for helixes are these types of piercings – why? Can I buy a standard pair of earrings and use just one of those? Or will that cause issues? How can I find a high quality earring that is fairly easy to insert and screw in and how do I do this?
