A surface tragus piercing is a type of body piercing that is done on the tragus, a small, triangular-shaped piece of cartilage that protrudes from the ear canal. Unlike other ear piercings, surface tragus piercings are done on the outside of the ear rather than through the cartilage itself. The jewelry is placed just under the skin and the entry and exit points of the piercing are visible.
Surface tragus piercings are often decorated with barbells or other types of jewelry. They are typically considered safe if proper aftercare is followed and if the piercing is performed by a professional, experienced piercer. As with any body piercing, there is a risk of infection, rejection, or migration, so it is important to keep the piercing clean and to avoid touching it with dirty hands. Proper aftercare will minimize the risk of complications and ensure a successful healing process.
