What Are Flat Back Earrings?
Flat back earrings, also known as helix earrings, are a type of earring design characterised by a flat, smooth backing that rests against the back of the ear or the earlobe. Unlike traditional earrings that have a post with a butterfly back, flat back earrings have a stud-like appearance with a internally threaded screw with a flat back that sits flush against the skin, mainly used for cartilage piercings including helix.

How To Remove Flat Back Earrings?
To remove flat back earrings, you can follow these steps:
1. Clean your hands thoroughly with soap and water to ensure they are free from any dirt or bacteria that could come into contact with the earring or piercing.
2. Use your fingers to hold the front part of the earring firmly but gently.
3. Place your other hand behind the earlobe to provide support and stability as you remove the backing.
4. Gently rotate the backing until it loosens and comes off. Be careful not to force it or twist too tightly, as it may cause discomfort or difficulty in removal.
5. Once the backing is removed, gently slide the earring post out of the piercing hole. Remember to handle your earrings and piercings with care to prevent injury or damage.
If you encounter any difficulties or discomfort during the removal process, it's advisable to seek assistance from a professional, such as a piercer or a jeweller. They can provide guidance and ensure safe earring removal if needed.

What Earring Is Best For Helix Piercing?
When it comes to choosing earrings for a helix piercing, there are several options that work well and offer both style and comfort. Stud earrings are a popular choice for helix piercings. They are simple, versatile, and sit close to the ear, making them comfortable and less likely to snag on clothing or hair. Choose studs with a flat back or a screw-on backing to minimise irritation and ensure a secure fit.

Huggie / Clicker Earrings: Small, thin huggie hoop earrings can be an attractive option for helix piercings. Choose hoop earrings with a diameter that comfortably fits your helix and ensure they have a smooth surface without any sharp edges to prevent irritation. Hinged or clicker-style hoops can be easier to open and close compared to continuous hoops.

Ear Cuffs: Ear cuffs are a non-piercing alternative that can be worn on the helix. They wrap around the outer edge of the ear and provide a stylish and unique look without the need for a piercing. Ear cuffs can be easily adjusted to fit your helix comfortably.

When Selecting Earrings For Your Helix Piercing, Consider The Following Factors:

Material: When you first get your ears pierced, opt for sterilised and hypoallergenic materials. Once healed, you can then swap to your new facourite Medley piece!

Size and Fit: Choose earrings that are appropriate for your helix piercing's size and placement. Ensure they are not too tight or too loose, as a proper fit is essential for both comfort and healing.

Closure Type: Pay attention to the closure type of the earrings. Flat backs can help prevent the earring from slipping out and reduce the risk of irritation.

How Long Do You Wait To Change Earrings After Cartilage Piercing?

After getting a cartilage piercing, it's important to allow sufficient healing time before changing the earrings. Cartilage piercings typically take longer to heal compared to earlobe piercings due to the lower blood supply in cartilage tissue. The initial healing period for a cartilage piercing is usually around 6 to 12 months. During this time, it's crucial to follow proper aftercare practices, such as cleaning the piercing with a saline solution and avoiding touching or rotating the jewellery. It's recommended to keep the initial jewellery in place without changing it until the healing period is complete. For more information seek assistance from a professional, such as a piercer.

What To Do With Single Earrings?
If you have single earrings without a matching pair, you can embrace the trend of mix and match earrings. Select two single earrings that complement each other in terms of style, colour, or design and wear them together as a mismatched pair. This can create a trendy and eclectic look that's personalised to your style.
