Money shot: the needle insertions are at about 0:27 and 1:23.
Watch as BodyCandy team member Kelly gets her ear cartilage pierced twice by James at American Skin Art in Buffalo, NY.
After thoroughly cleaning Kelly’s ear, James marks the placement of both piercings, clamps the area of the first piercing site, and pushes a hollow piercing needle through. This type of cartilage piercing is performed near the top of the ear where the helix (the outcropping of cartilage along the ear’s outside edge) meets the scaffa, the slightly concave plane or furrow just beneath it.
Jewelry is inserted into the first piercing, and the area is gently cleaned before prepping for the second puncture. Once both piercings have been completed, the backs of the jewelry are screwed into place, and Kelly is one step closer to the new look that she’s been wanting.
Helix piercings heal relatively quickly, and after just a few weeks of diligent aftercare, Kelly is already enjoying her cool new double helix piercing.
