Standard earrings are a 20 gauge. 18 gauge is usually what they use for piercing ears with a needle. 16 gauge would be a very large hole for cartilage. If your hole is really an 18 you could get away with a regular earring for the day.

I’m mostly posting to bookmark this, since I’m curious about the issue as well. I’m pretty sure Aure is correct about your standard post earring being 20 gauge, though.

For myself, I have a conch piercing which is a pretty large, 14 gauge ring. If you’re at all concerned about it closing up, they make clear plastic retainers in most gauges I believe. I’m very wary of leaving my ring out because it has been tempermental.

I have a skinny silver hoop in my cartilage. I think I will leave it in or change it to a TINY stud for the wedding. I also have a rook peircing like this: (not my ear)

 

 

 

 

 

Not sure yet what I will do with that. I feel like it is me, so I might leave it. I’m also scared it will close if I take it out. I’ve had it for 4 years but have never taken it out so I don’t know if it will close!

@Woodstock:  If you do consider getting one the healing process can be really lengthy. Mine didn’t really feel completely healed until about a year and a half after I had it done, and even still if it gets bumped badly it’ll get a little infected.

Those earrings are really pretty! It’s too bad about them being for the wrong side though.

You won’t even notice.  I have 4 earrings in the top pic (cartilage and )a unique one above a traditional tragus), 3 on the other (one rook).  All cartilage piercings were done by a pro.  I was asked if I was going to remove them.  But I nicely declined.

They are me, why would I take them out or change them and draw more attention to my earrings than my hair. Trust me, there are many many more important things for you to worry about 🙂  Good luck and happy wedding!

I have a rook piercing, and I’m just going to leave it in. I can’t take it out myself (it requires pliers), so I’ve never taken it out. It’s part of me, so I’m happy to have it in my pictures!

haha i saw the title of this post and thought gross a ring made out of cartlidge! lol

I have two small rings up on the left side of my ear in the cartlidge, which i did take out for the wedding but on my right side I have my tragus pierced and the area accross from that between the lobe and the cartlage pierced.  I have a very small silver ball in each (they are actually really nose rings! they are perfect b/c they bend around so no backs and they have never come out by accident!) I get complements all the time on them, I decided to leave those in!  They are fun

I will have to look in our pics to see if you can see them!

I put a “ring” in my tragus. It’s a 16g (hurt a bit at first) but it’s a simple star with a CZ spot in the middle.  I’ll probably have it in for the wedding.  I got it at Hot Topic of all places hehe
