The rook is located just above the tragus, and is a rather thick section of cartilage to pierce through.
How easy a rook piercing is going to be can depend on the anatomy of your ear. Some people have a very pronounced rook, which is easier to pierce but requires slicing through a larger amount of flesh. Smaller rooks don’t have as much cartilage to pierce through, but can be more difficult for the piercer to get at. Either way, it’s still a relatively simple procedure to an experienced professional piercer.
