How long does it take a cartilige piercing to heal?


Wiki User

Done properly a cartilage piercing will be lightly healed in about 4~6 weeks. When I say done properly, I mean done by a professional body piercer using a needle process piercing, not a piercing gun piercing. Piercing guns don't cut the tissue they in fact tear the tissue, this can prolong healing time as well as cause serious healing issues.
