How long does it take for a cartilage piercing to heal fully?
If you have taken it out and want the hole gone, it may take up to a year if not longer to fully close. But if you just got it pierced it should bug you for a week possibly more before the irritation goes away.
It takes at least 3 mo for a new piercing to heal fully
8 weeks but keep it a earing in it for at least a few more days
