When it comes to your ears, the piercing possibilities are endless. If you haven’t taken a look before, grab a mirror. Pretty much every nook and cranny you see can be the home of your new favorite piece of jewelry. But where to start?

So last week I got my rook pierced, and it was the first “real” piercing I have ever gotten and so far so good! Take note that Rook piercings take about 3-9 months to heal and rate pretty average on the pain tolerance scale. It was a spontaneous action as I was planning to do some groceries and instead I came home with a piercing (oops). It hurts more afterwards and gives your ear a bit of pain for a few days but it’s really worth it.

That a look at the below adventurous Ear Piercings. These ear piercings are so adorable, the pain might actually be worth it.

Different types of piercings

HELIX PIERCING

This is a type of piercing where the cartilage or the upper ear is punctured so that an earring can be placed. More often than not, a piercing gun is used to pierce the ear. But there are others who just use a bigger needle in order to create a helix piercing. Ear jewelries that are used for this are the studs or bead rings.

SCAFFOLD PIERCING

This is also known as the industrial piercing. In this type of ear puncture, there are two pierces located in the ear cartilage or helix. These are just like two helix piercings but connected together with a barbell earring.

ROOK PIERCING

This is a puncture done at the ear’s antihelix. It is actually considered as one of the most painful ear piercings since the needle would pass in different cartilage tissues of the ear. Moreover, it is also known to be very difficult to perform at the same time.

DAITH PIERCING

This is a type of perforation done at the ear’s cartilage so that a jewelry can be inserted. Using a curved needle, the daith piercing is performed. This is to prevent the other ear parts from being damaged due t piercing. Some also use a receiving tube as well that would catch the needle on the other side. More often than not, people use ear jewelries with small gauges so it can be easily inserted just like the captive bead ring.

SNUG PIERCING

This is located at the inner cartilage of the ear. It is at the lower part of the ear’s outer rim. More often than not, a snug piercing is shallow compared to the other types or ear piercing locations. Aside from that, a micro-jewelry can only be used as well. Earrings known as the curved barbells are usually used for snug piercing.

CONCH PIERCING

There are actually two types of conch earring namely the inner conch piercing and the outer conch piercing. The inner conch piercing is done at the center of the ear’s cartilage. This is just adjacent to the part called ear canal. When doing the inner conch piercing it is important that you use a big gauge piercing needle and put a barbell ear accessory as well. On the other hand, the outer conch piercing can be found at the outer cartilage of the ear. It can be found at the flat area of the outer ear. As long as the perforation is at the flat part of the cartilage, it is still considered as an outer conch pierce. However, if it is already done at the curled portion of the ear, it is already called as the helix piercing.

LOBE PIERCING

This is probably the most common part of the ear that is being punctured. The lobe is considered as the softest and the biggest part of the ear. The ear’s lobe can actually accommodate as much as three piercings because of its size.
