The Snug piercing is one of the most distinctive ear piercings, because it is located in the inner cartilage area, partly along the outer edge of the ear, just above the Anti-Tragus. The Snug piercing is placed in the hardened part on the outside of the ear. This makes it quick and easy to place for the piercing artist but it can be a bit painful. Be careful when sleeping; it is absolutely recommended to cover the piercing with a band aid during the first few nights. If you are a restless sleeper, a neck pillow is also a good solution!
