How to change earrings with tragus piercing

Tragus piercings are complicated and are piercings in the skin in front of the inner ear. Because of the location, it is more difficult to retrieve earrings from here than from other piercings. It can still be removed though. Be prepared first, then remove the earrings depending on the type of earrings, and if you are afraid, you can seek professional help.

 Expose the earrings

  1. Expose the earrings.  When removing the earpiece from the tragus piercing, pull the skin forward so you can reach the piercing.  Place your fingers directly in front of the tragus and gently pull the skin forward.  This will expose more of the earpiece and leave room to take it out.


  1. Wash the area with alcohol to keep it clean.  Rub the perforation and surrounding skin with alcohol to disinfect and prevent bacterial residue on the skin during earring change and cause infection.

Take additional precautions

  1. Wait for the perforation to heal completely.  Do not change earrings if the piercing has not healed.  If pus is secreted and scabs form, the perforation has not healed.  And when it doesn't heal, it hurts.  Don't worry, or you may get infected.

Paying for something can take months for the tragus to heal.

Buy a ticket to see a doctor when an infected piercing can redness, swell and secrete pus (sticky pus), and don't take off your earring if you think it's infected.


  1. Put on earrings quickly.  These piercings are particularly prone to death.  To prevent piercings from dying, do not take the earrings out too long.  A few minutes is fine, but some people die in a few hours.

 professional piercer

  1. Ask a professional piercer.  Professional piercers know how to change earrings, and they can do it much easier than you can do it yourself.  If you don't feel comfortable changing your own earrings, talk to a local piercer and ask if they can replace them for you.
