The studs in standard piercing guns are 20-gauge in diameter and are long enough to go through the earlobe when pierced. Usually stainless steel studs are used by piercers because it is known to be the most skin friendly metal. Sometimes the ear stud is gold plated as well. The difference between normal studs and piercing studs is that they are sharper than the normal ones because they are required to pierce the earlobe. Like any ear stud these studs are also held by butterfly back lock to hold the stud in place. Whether you are having a piercing on the earlobe or on helix or any other part of your ear the process with guns remains the same.
Piercing guns are manufactured from plastic and come with metal trigger and earring cradle. The stud rests on an adapter in built in the shaft while the earring back sits in the cradle. The earlobe is placed between the adapter and the cradle and a hole is punched. Blunt force is used to pierce the earlobe which enables the stud to go through the skin.

A double helix means getting two perforations on the cartilage. It takes more time to heal than the ones on earlobes. So, you have to remain patient and give it the time to heal for at least 6 months before you think of changing it. A double helix piercing can be a ‘forward’ one as well. In this particular type, perforations are made at the beginning of the helix or on the helix trunk. Helix piercing is not done with shots; instead needles are used to pierce the area. A forward piercing is more painful than a normal helix piercing. Helix piercing can cost between $30 and $80 depending on your city and the salon you have chosen.
