TYPES OF PIERCINGS DEPENDING ON ITS POSITION IN THE EAR
LOBE AND UPPER LOBE PIERCING
The lobe piercing is usually the first earring and it is the most common one. Normally, the biggest earring is worn on this hole. Besides that, on the first hole we usually wear the same earring in both ears. But it is true that if you combine two earrings from different sizes it will look super original. We also have cute earrings for the lobe: choose the one that best suits your style and create unique combos! Here you have some of our favorites: JEEVIKA, NITIKA, and DHIANA.
The upper lobe piercing is located above the first hole. In this part of the ear you can get between three or five piercings. Normally in the upper lobe we prefer smaller piercings like hoops, gemstones earrings or stud earrings. Some of the earrings we like the most are KAUSALYA, KANIRA, KISHORI and CHAD.
HELIX AND FORWARD HELIX PIERCINGS
We love the Helix piercing. It is located at the top of the ear, above the cartilage and it is one of the most popular piercings. You can get a lot of piercings in this part of the ear, but the most common is between one and three. For this kind of piercing we recommend a simple and thin one. And if you ask us for the most beautiful piercings for this hole, we choose JAYASHRI, DAYARAM and RATI.
The Forward Helix piercing as you may guess is located on the opposite side of the Helix, between your face and the earring, above the Tragus. Both thin and thick piercings are perfect for this hole, all of them will look perfect. For this piercing we love HARENDRA, SHAKUNTALA and PIERCING JATIN (10MM).
ROOK AND DAITH PIERCINGS
The Rook piercing is a small hole inside the ear. For this piercing we recommend a small and thin earring. Its location is pretty small, so a bigger piercing may bother you. But if you dare, go ahead! There are no rules in fashion. The piercings that we prefer for the Rook are SHYAMA, DRISTI and ALAK.
The Daith piercing is probably the most inner ear piercing that we can get. It is located in the deepest part of the ear and almost in the center. For this hole you can choose thin piercings like the VENKAT and AFTAN or if you are looking for something more striking you can choose a thick piercing like the HARENDRA or the SHRIPATI.
TRAGUS AND ANTITRAGUS PIERCINGS
The Tragus piercing is on trend. It is so stylish and you can see the jewel from both sides thanks to the shape of this little cartilage located at the entrance of the ear. For the Tragus we love thin piercings like small hoops or stud earrings with simple shapes. We don’t forget bead earrings either, which are the most used piercings for this hole. The piercings that we love the most are VASANTA, ADAG and DHARMA.
The Antitragus piercing is located on the opposite side of the Tragus, on the opposite cartilage and above the upper lobe. It looks great with thin earrings, but it will depend on your style. For us the best options for the Antitragus are the YADU and SANDIP. It’s true that this piercing is not as famous as the others but once you have it, you love it.
FLAT AND CONCH PIERCING
The Flat piercing is located in the upper-middle part of the ear, near the Helix. It has become a trend this year and it is perfect to get an elegant and unique style to our look. For the Flat piercing we recommend you gemstone, stud, shaped or longer piercings like DIL, HALAKON or CANDA.
The Conch piercing is a hole located in the lower part of the cartilage, just above the Antitragus. This piercing surrounds the outside part of the ear and visually it looks like there is a hoop around it. We love this hoop piercing! For this piercing you will need a bigger hoop. Piercing OMANA would be a perfect option!. And in case you don’t have this hole, don’t worry! You can fake it with our Earcuff.
NOSE PIERCINGS NOSTRIL AND SEPTUM
The Nostril piercing is located in the lateral cartilage of the nose, you can wear it on the left or right sides. This kind of hole became a trend so many years ago, but it is back this year. You can choose shaped earrings, hoops or give it a chance to the gemstone piercings, but normally for this hole we wear thin and smaller piercings. Some of our favorites for the nose are AMALA, SHANKAR and AFTAN.
The Septum is located under the nose, between the nostrils. Just a few dare to wear this piercing, but the ones who wear it always get a unique look. For this type of hole we recommend a thick and flashy piercing. The RADHA piercing is perfect and will make you look even more original.
