Rook Piercing Shopping Guide

A rook piercing is a cute little piercing, but probably not the first ear piercing that comes to mind. There is a wide variety of piercing types you can wear in a rook piercing.

This shopping guide has more information about the different kinds of piercings, sizes, and the different materials that are used for rook jewellery.

Standard Rook Piercing Sizes

Traditional ear piercing studs come with a straight bar. Straight bars could also fit a rook piercing, but we recommend using a piercing ring or a curved barbell.

The standard bar thickness for a rook piercing is 1.2 mm. The standard length or diameter is 6 mm, but 8 mm could also be used. Although most piercing hoops could fit in the rook, note that ball closure rings can be a bit difficult to put in.


Curved Barbells for the Rook Piercing

A curved barbell and a rook 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 and the most common bar length is 6 mm.

Titanium rook jewellery is ideal if you prefer something that would last a long time. Titanium is hypoallergenic and free of nickel, and it won’t stain.

14 Kt. Gold

There are many 14 kt. gold piercings that could be used on a rook piercing. Aside from being durable, it is quite easy to take care of. When your budget allows it, consider a real gold piercing.

Rook Piercing Aftercare

Proper aftercare is important for your new rook piercing. Cartilage piercings tend to heal more slowly than other piercings. Our Piercing Healing Kit can help with the healing period and with treating inflamed or irritated skin.

For daily cleaning and care, we recommend using a saline solution such as our Salt Spray, combined with our Piercing Butter or Piercing Wonder Oil.
