3.     Industrial piercing:

For this kind of piercing a professional piercing technician would make two perforations on the upper cartilage. A horizontal wire is then passed through them and it connects them both. To provide a more intense touch to this style you may want to wear an earring in the shape of an arrow.

4.     Rook piercing:

Great accuracy is required when doing rook piercing as it is done on two different cartilages that include the cartilage fold on the upper inner ear. It is highly charming when bejeweled with a white, sparkling stud.

5.     Conch piercing:

A conch piercing is the perforation of the ear cartilage. It wraps around the whole edge of the ear. It looks simple with another stud or you can team it with a stack of fine rings for a more embellished look.

6.     Feather chain:

This type of piercing is done on the earlobe. They are usually done in conjunction with one or more lobe piercings. You can wear a chain type earring with this piercing style.

7.     Line up:

This kind of ear piercing style is a combination of three or more piercings done on the lobe at a certain interlude from each other. You need three or more earrings of the same design but different sizes for this type of piercing. It looks catchy and unique too.

8.     Daith piercing:

Daith piercing means to pierce the innermost cartilage fold of the ear. It is the most sensitive type and is difficult to access. You can choose a ring for this type of piercing.

9.     Helix piercing:

In this type of piercing, the pierce goes on helix of the ear. A professional would use a piercing gun on your ears but it is extremely painful. Adding a miniscule hoop to the ear head, or forward helix, gives a unique finish to your ear.

So before going for the piercing of your ear make sure that you’ve done your research. Not only consider the various types of piercings but also make sure that get it done by the best piercer available. And if you are a risk-averse type of person, you can always wear cuff earrings for a cool and modern look without piercing your ears.
