In this tutorial, we learn how to pierce your cartilage. To do this, you will need: gold/silver earring, alcohol, and paper towels. To start, you want to mark the spot that you want to pierce, then clean your needle and the area with rubbing alcohol. Now, pierce the needle through the area you want it to be. Keep pushing the needle through until you get to the other side, then replace the area with the jewelry as you go. You will pass several different layers of skin and cartilage, so be prepared for pain. When finished, clean the area and keep it clean for several weeks.
