Hi so I’ve always wanted a helix piercing , I’ve finally built up the courage to get one on Sunday I have some questions.. Does it hurt? Is it at a high risk of getting infected? Do you get a stud or ring? Does it bleed? How long does it take to heal?😅😇
Pain is based on person to person. Personally I didn't think it was too bad and it was a short and sharp pain. Definitely pierce with a stud as helix is prone to infection and the more it moves (like with a ring) the more likely it will get infected. They barely bleed and healing also varies from person to person. To fully heal it can range from 6 months to 12+ months.
