Question: Can you put an earring in a preauricular sinus? That's a birth defect [a genetic hole in your ear] for people who don't know. I can stick an earring halfway in but i would have to pierce it to go all the way through. I think it would be a pretty cool piercing to have, so is that safe? Search 'preauricular sinus' on google images if you would like to see it. Please help!

Answer: So long as it's just cartilage, which it looks like to me, then sure. It's called a helix pierce in normal ears, I don't see why it would be different in yours.
