Is It Hard to Pierce?

The anti-tragus is a little smaller than the tragus, so if you have a particularly small tragus, your anti-tragus may be more difficult. On the other hand, since the anti-tragus is somewhat more “exposed” to the open area of the ear, it’s easier to get at than the tragus. Regardless, any successful piercing depends on the specific anatomy of the person getting the piercing.

What Sort of Jewelry Will Work?

Pretty much anything that you would or could put into the tragus, you can also put into the anti-tragus. They are usually pierced with hoops, horseshoes, or curved barbells. This piercing is great for adding gem beads or using colored jewelry to make it pop!

Is This a Popular Piercing?

Just as tragus piercings seem to be sort of an “underground” sort of style choice that has become more widely popular in the last few years, anti-tragus piercings are similarly hard to find, but getting more requests. While it’s always possible that this sort of piercing will become more popular over time, for the moment it remains more of a unique piercing.

Are There Any Problems with This Piercing?

Because it’s so close to the tragus, physically speaking, the same sorts of problems may occur. Difficulty with earbuds, possible swelling, tenderness, and drainage at the piercing site. Infection is always a possibility but as long as you’re vigilant with your aftercare routine and wash your hands before touching your new piercing, the chances are slim.
