DIY: Tragus Ear Cuff

Posted on Jan 5 2015 - 3:02pm by Patty Minichiello

On my recent trip home for Christmas I met up with 2/3 of my best girlfriends for breakfast. One of them had recently gotten her tragus (part of the exterior cartilage on the outside of your ear canal) pierced and I thought it was adorable. I have yet to take the plunge on getting mine pierced, but I found a satisfactory solution (at least for now) while browsing through Pintrest: making you own tragus ear cuff!

You will need:

– Scissors

– Jewelry pliers

– Flexible jewelry wire

Cut the wire about 4 inches long and bend in the middle:

Using pliers, bend the edges inward to create the top of a heart shape:

Clamp the bottom really tightly together for form a heart:

Take the bottom and bend it into a “U”. Adjust as necessary.

Your very own pain-free tragus “piercing”!
