A little bleeding is to be expected with cartilage piercings, the incision in the cartilage needs to be larger than the jewellery gauge going into the piercing, this is to allow the skin to heal between the jewellery and the cartilage. Excessive bleeding is an indication your piercer didn't candle the cartilage before doing the piercing to see where the veins are located on both sides of the cartilage.

Bleeding is due to the small vessels in the ear cartilage having been cut. Partly due to the piercer not looking at the cartilage piercing carefully enough to avoid damaging the vessels structures. Bleeding will occur with all cartilage piercings, how much depends on the location of the vessels. Don't clear the clots away from the piercing (this is the bodies way of plugging the leak) allowing the clots to stay for 24 hours will allow the body to close the damaged vessels from the inside out. Washing the piercing under running water will rinse the clots away and not irritate the piercing thus preventing the piercing from bleeding again. The bleeding should ease within 24 ~ 48 hours.

Bleeding after getting a new piercing is normal; a piercing is technically an injury & your body will (usually) heal.

Some bleeding is normal. However, if it is excessive or you are unable to get it to stop by applying pressure, you should see your physician for evaluation.

because it's healing, it's a normal part of the healing process.

Any bleeding during pregnancy should be checked by a doctor. Sometimes it can be normal but constant bleeding usually isnt.

Bleeding during pregnancy is not "normal" but some light spotting is reported by about 50% of women in early pregnancy.

No! Swelling in cartilage piercings is an indication that the dermal layer has been torn free from the cartilage layer and is building up a layer of scar tissue between the three layers.

It depends on how heavy the bleeding is. Its normal to sometimes spot during pregnancey. Cramps, all the time. If bleeding is heavy its a possible miscarraige you should see docter immediately.

Yes but only if you hit it or something. A constant pain probably isn't good.

User Avatar

Yes. It'll probably get hit often so that'll make it sore.

The traguss (the piece of cartilage that sticks out at the start of the ear canal) can vary in thickness from person to person and so if the wrong size jewellery is used when changing the piercing this could cause discomfort and or pain. Also lack of proper aftercare following the initial piercing and changing the piercing to early -before healing is completed. It normally takes between 8-16 weeks for healing to occur. This is longer than a lobe ear piercing because it is through cartilage. It also depends on the site of the piercing, the tension created on the cartilage and the size of jewellery used.

Bleeding is normal for any piercing. A piercing is a wound, and wounds bleed. The only way it would keep bleeding rather than heal is if you pick at it or play with it. Dont play with it! Also, do not overclean it. Dont clean it more than once per day, and clean it with antibacterial soap. If you are using salt soaks or salt water, stop!! This is irritating to your piercing and can severely dry it out.

Bleeding during pregnancy is not normal. Any bleeding can indicate a threatened miscarriage. See your doctor.

i have my cartilage pierced it didn't hurt just && the time i wasn't really eating or drinking anything so i fainted. i went to walmart to do mine

No bleeding is bad, piercing guns are worse. Sterling silver is never to be used in a piercing under any circumstances especially ear cartilage piercings Silver oxidizes and with the oxidization a permanent staining effect can leach into the open piercings. If you want silver looking rings for your piercings go to a body piercing studio and buy captive bead rings made from proper surgical implant stainless steel.

Some light bleeding may occur, but it's best to see your doctor just in case.
