    Question Questions about daith piercings + Am I suited?

    Hi, just wanted to ask a few questions about a daith piercing. I won't be getting it until at least next year to let my current piercings heal, but I'm figuring out what I want next on the other ear to even it out. I'm either going to get a daith and a helix, or a double helix.

    1. Am I suited for a daith? (sorry for crap lighting and having no first lobe in, I took it pretty late)
    2. I need to get my conch jewellery cut as the threading is severely stuck, so would probably get that done in the next year but if not, would a daith cause an issue with this (may seem silly, but I can imagine a daith really getting in the way if I was to be lazy and wait a whole year)
    3. I think I would want to wear a standard curved barbell, as I really like the way it looks, and I'm assuming a curved barbell would fit okay with a conch. However, would I be able to wear a CBR/clicker in it with the conch I currently have?
    4. With a curved barbell in it, would I be able to wear earbuds/how long would I have to wait until I can wear them?
    5. What kind of issues have you experienced?

    Thank you. Also, am I right in assuming that a curved barbell will heal it the fastest? I put a circular barbell with the balls against each side of the daith area, as if it were to be a smooth segment ring if it was the real thing and I love the way it looks too, so I would be okay wearing either a curved barbell or smooth segment ring to speed up healing

    Does anyone know any reliable places online to get some anodised gold titanium for it, too?

    Some find healing faster with a barbell, I don't suggest healing with a segment ring as you'll have to make sure that the notches aren't in the piercing and move it if they are, this can delay healing. A seamless ring may be better for that purpose. Where do you live?
