Can I wear ear buds?
We don’t suggest wearing ear buds with this piercing until it is fully healed. In the meantime over the ear headphones that don’t cause pressure, or the tragus cluster2‘runners ear buds’ that wrap around the ear rather then sit inside are great alternatives.
I heard you hear a ‘crunch’/’pop’ when you do this!
This is often urban legend. People say they hear an odd noise when usually they hear the piercers tools, or their jewelry being inserted after the piercing is done. You aren’t likely to hear a ‘crunch’ or ‘pop’ and this piercing does not ‘break’ the cartilage.
