Anti-Tragus Piercing Shopping Guide

The anti-tragus piercing is located on the opposite side of the tragus piercing. There is a wide variety of piercing types you can wear in an anti-tragus piercing.

This shopping guide has more information about the different piercing types, sizes, and about the different materials that are used for anti-tragus jewellery.

Standard Anti-Tragus Piercing Sizes

Traditional cartilage studs come with a straight bar. However, we recommend using a curved barbell or piercing ring for an anti-tragus piercing.

The standard bar thickness for an anti-tragus piercing is 1.2 mm. The standard bar length or ring diameter is 6 mm, but 8 mm is also a common choice.


Curved Barbells for the Anti-Tragus Piercing

A curved barbell and an anti-tragus piercing are a perfect match. There are different styles to choose from, from plain balls or crystals to beautiful figurines.

For curved barbells, the standard bar thickness is 1.2 mm as well and the most common bar length is 6 mm.

Anti-Tragus Piercing Aftercare

Proper aftercare is important for your new anti-tragus piercing. Cartilage piercings are more likely to take more time to heal than other piercings. Our Piercing Healing Kit can help with irritations and the general healing period.

Our Salt Spray with Tea Tree is a good option for everyday cleaning. You can also combine it with our Piercing Butter or Piercing Wonder Oil.
