TRIPLE FORWARD HELIX PIERCINGS

Triple Forward Helix And Snug Piercings

Triple Forward Helix And Snug Piercings

By far the most commonly asked for cartilage piercings that I have been asked about over the last year are the triple forward helix piercings. There are many misconceptions about these piercings. While I don’t wish to speak ill of anyone, the reason for this is bad information passed along to folks by piercers who have not performed the piercings or have performed them incorrectly.

That being said, let’s straighten these issues out so you can receive great triple forward helix piercings!

First, they are not dermal anchors or surface piercings. They are standard cartilage piercings. if someone tells you differently, run away and don’t let them touch you! While this particular configuration of piercings has recently become very popular, it isn’t “brand new” or overly advanced. If a piercer can’t figure out what is going on with the triple forward helix, it probably says something about their experience and/or understanding of basic body piercing.

Second, I recommend that with these and virtually all piercings that rings NOT be used for initial healing. Rings will tend to move much more than studs do and they will also tend to get bumped/snagged much more often. This combination makes the piercings much harder to heal with rings and greatly increases the likelihood of healing problems and excess scar tissue formation.

Lastly, as with all piercings, insure that your piercer is using quality jewelry. Here at my body piercing and jewelry studio in Arlington, Va, I use ONLY implant grade materials for all body piercings.
