If you feel like those studs just aren’t helping your style at all, then you would probably need something a little bit bolder for your ears. Here are a few other ear piercing options that you may want to consider:
- Orbital Piercing. This kind of piercing means making two holes on your lobes that are near each other, with a single ball closure ring often worn in it. If you already have an existing piercing, you can simply add another one next to it to achieve the effect.
- Anti-Tragus Piercing. Your anti-tragus isthat part inside the earthat’s found opposite your tragus. Because this kind of piercing goes through a thick part of cartilage, this proves to be a lot more painful than your regular piercing and could take longer to heal.
- Daith Piercing. This is done on that inner piece of cartilage found just above your ear canal’s opening. Usually, a smaller and curved needle is used to do this piercing so that the area around it will not be punctured or scratched.
- Industrial Piercing. This kind of piercing is slightly similar to orbital piercing because of the need for two different holes to be made. This time however, the holes are far apart, allowing a long wire to run through each of the holes, with balls usually used to lock both ends.
- Tragus Piercing. If there is an anti-tragus piercing, then it is also possible to have your tragus pierced. Your tragus is that thick cartilage found at the outer part of your ear. Aside from being extremely painful, it could also get in the way if you often wear headphones.
- Rook Piercing. The rook piercing is done on that piece of cartilage found between the inner and the outer ear. This kind of piercing is very vulnerable to stretching or tearing, and could take some time to heal as well.
- Helix Piercing. This kind of piercing is done at the rim on the upper part of your ear. Because there is a lot of space, you can also have multiple piercings done here, just like your regular lobe piercing.
These different kinds of ear piercings may have different levels of pain as compared to your normal ear piercings, but they do add a bold statement to your look that regular piercings can never give you.
