If you plan on getting your tragus pierced soon, then there are some things to consider like which type of earring you’ll be wearing. This is extremely important as most piercer advice on keeping the starter earring in your tragus no less than half a year while many would even recommend keeping it at least a year.
Based on what the earring looks like there are about 6 tragus earring styles that you can choose from:
The most common style is the barbell. This type can be found as a circular one or as straight bar, most commonly known as a stud earring. The tragus stud is one of the smallest earrings that you could find. The push-in tragus earring looks a lot like the stud, but it has a more detailed design, with flowers, skulls, heart and so on. Another type is the dangle tragus earring that looks a bit like the stud but it has a little piece of jewelry hanging onto it. The CBRs (or captive bead rings) look like rings and have a ball that is used to open and to secure the ring on your tragus. The hoops, or captive bead rings, are probably just as popular as the barbells.

Girls would much rather wear colorful and sparkly gemstones, gold or a barbell with a little dangle. Guys generally prefer more gender neutral earrings, dark colors and silver colored metals.
