Earrings for Tragus Piercings

Earrings for Tragus Piercings

By Jonaira South

A tragus piercing can fit any look you are going for. First off, if you don’t know what your tragus is, it’s the triangular, thick piece of skin covering the opening of your ear. Now that we’ve got that out of the way let’s get into the fun stuff. Tragus piercings are one of the more popular piercings you can get and they can create either a subtle or bold look. 

Depending on your personal aesthetic, studs or small hoops fit perfectly for a tragus piercing. Although it seems challenging to stack earrings on your tragus it can be done depending on the size of your tragus. You can take two or three small hoops or two medium-sized studs. If that’s not your aesthetic then it’s okay to stick to one earring in your tragus. There are a variety of looks to go for that include a dainty or bold look.

For a clean look, you want a simple, small, and dainty earring. Gold-toned jewelry is usually a go-to for the clean aesthetic but you can switch to silver for your tragus piercing depending on what looks best on your skin type. Here are the earrings we think look best for the clean tragus piercing look:

Since your hair may be pulled back behind the ear, thin and silver or color-studded earrings will look great in your tragus. The Mini Isla Studs create the illusion of multiple earrings in the tragus with just one thin bar. If you want to stack earrings you’ll need multiple piercings of course. When stacking earrings in the tragus, hoops look best. The Single Mini Rooftop Huggie Hoop Earring and Single Coastal Hoop would complement each other. To spice up your look, try our Siella Screw Back Stud Earrings. They are subtle but can spice up a clean look to add a little color to your tragus.

For a bold look, you’re going to want to make a statement. Your tragus piercing will definitely stand out with the right earring. Whether you prefer gold-toned or silver-toned accessories, just know you’ll be treating your tragus with any of these unique and loud options:

With a bold look, your hair will either be pulled back or in a new hairstyle you’ve decided to try in order to spice up your look. Our Single Maris Flat Back Studs offer a unique shape with bright colors to draw people to your tragus. Another option is the Single Carina Flat Back Stud Earrings which give you your normal stud earring times three! Either stud will allow your tragus to pop (not literally of course). If you want to switch out the traditional stud earring for a hoop to occupy your tragus piercing, the Mini Sunburst Hoops or Single Pavé Coastal Hoop Earring. Both options will bring all eyes to your tragus piercing, no doubt. 

Your tragus piercing can draw people into your full earring stack so make sure whatever earring you choose, fits your aesthetic and style. Carefully curating your accessories can make or break a look, but if you use this guide, it’ll always make it and pull everything together!
