The anti-tragus piercing goes through the hard nub on the lower cartilage rim, above the lobe and below the tragus. The anti-tragus can be a tough healer as it is a thick section of cartilage, but with proper aftercare and lots of patience, the anti-tragus will heal up to be a beautiful and unusual piercing. The most popular and comfortable jewellery style for the anti-tragus is curved barbells, but when they are fully healed they can be fitted with hinged rings, horseshoes or ball closure rings!
