Watch as modified cutie Jen gets a daith ear cartilage piercing.  (Look for the needle at about 22 seconds.)

First, the piercer cleans Jen’s ear thoroughly, being careful to get the cartilage all around where the daith will go.  He then marks dots and a circular guideline, to show where the jewelry is going to lay. Our piercee approves the placement, and a hollow needle receiving tube is moved into place. She’s instructed to take a deep breath and exhale slowly, and the hollow piercing needle is gently pushed through, then corked. Next, the needle is chased with a BCR, which is meticulously squeezed into place with a pair of special jewelry pliers.  A little final cleanup, and Jen walks away with an awesome new daith piercing to add to her collection.

Daith piercings were first performed in 1992 by piercing legend Erik Dakota, but they’ve definitely come along way since then, and are now worn with a variety of body jewelry such as ball captive rings, horseshoe barbells, and clickers.  As a contemporary piercing, the daith has seen a steady rise in popularity, though it still remains less common compared to other ear cartilage piercings.
