Quotes from Piercing FAQ
TRANSVERSE OR LATERAL LOBE
Piercing made through the earlobe perpendicular to a standard earlobe piercing. People with large, unattached earlobes are the best candidates for this piercing.
The transverse piercing can be made to intersect an enlarged lobe piercing, making the transverse piercing two piercings which may decrease healing time. If an eyelet is drilled to fit the transverse piercing, the holes must be perfectly smooth with rounded edges.
Initial jewelry: Straight and slightly curved barbells, 1/8» longer than the width of the piercing to allow for proper cleaning. If a ring is chosen it should be large enough in diameter so that arc of the ring that passes through the piercing is not so tight as to cause the piercing to migrate or reject.
