Tragus bars are piercing jewelry that are made for a piercing on the tragus, the bars or barbells are shaped like a barbell hence the name, and they are held in place with two beads at the ends of the bar that are screwed in. There are two types of screwing mechanisms for tragus bars and they are internally and externally threaded beads, the internally threaded beads are the safer choice for a piercing because they eliminate the chance of any abrasion from happening, the threading on the shaft is not present so the hazard is removed. The tragus is a small cartilaginous flap in front of the external opening of the ear, and a piercing on the tragus should be taken with the same precaution as all piercing, keeping it clean and following the instructions given by your piercer will reduce the time it takes to heal with out any complications. The tragus bars are made with several different materials such as stainless steel, titanium, gold and others.
