This is among popular types of body piercing ideas which is done on the cartilage of ear, but in a quite simpler way. Basically, there are two types of conch piercings – Inner and Outer. Inner conch piercing is done successfully at the center of the cartilage while on the other hand; outer conch is done on the flat surface of the ear. And, no need to worry at all as conch piercing bleeds little, but your piercing artist will take care of it.
3. Industrial Piercing!
If you have thought of getting Industrial piercing, then you may have some questions? Such as – what are the benefits, what’s the exact location to get it done, from where can you get an industrial piercing done? It’s but obvious, but don’t panic – this type of piercing is popular among both guys and gals. It is also known by the name of scaffold piercing under which two or more piercings of the ear cartilage are connected by a long barbell.
4. Tragus Piercing!
Interestingly, tragus piercing requires some extra pressure from the piercer as the sign of tragus is thick and hard to achieve.
