Oreja Piercing- 40+ Images Ideas

Know what piercings you can do on your ear!

We can do many piercings in the ear and each one has a different name. We show you!

It is very common that, when we reach adolescence , we give ourselves to do things in the body. Either with or without knowledge of the parents, more than one has made some other permanent memory . Some, the most daring, they were tattoos , difficult to erase and that surely over time more than one has regretted having done. Others preferred to wear an earring on some part of the body , whatever it was.PlayUnmuteLoaded: 0%Progress: 0%-0: 42Fullscreen

It could be visible in the nose , the eyebrow, the lip … Others did it in more hidden areas such as the tongue . Some when they turned age they regretted having done it and decided to take it off , leaving a curious scar that reminds them that once there was an earring there.

The good thing is that piercings are still fashionable. You can do them anywhere on the body and there are as many as you can imagine. But surely if you do one will be in the most common place of all: in the ear. What you may not know is that each of them has a name . Do you want to get a piercing in your ear and do not know which one? Do you have it but do not know what it’s called? Do not worry, here you will find the name of the most common you can do.

Lobe Piercing

It is the most common of all and the one that almost all of us carry. It is about what is done, as its name suggests, in the lobe of the ear. You can make one, two, five or even put yourself dilators to enlarge that hole as much as possible. You have a great variety to choose from.

Piercing Helix

The helix piercing is more colorful than the previous one. It covers the outer fold of the ear , that is, from the tragus to the lobe and can be of three different types, depending on how high the ear we do it. If it is above, it is called superior; if it is halfway up it is called interior; and if it is in the lower part, sticking with the lobe, it is called low. It is one of the most often done, is original and nothing bizarre.

Piercing Tragus

The piercing tragus is located in the small piece of cartilage that we have “covering” the entrance of the ear and that is called swallow . The most common is that the slope is double and you see front and back. In addition, some experts claim that it helps to remove the headache . We do not know if that is true, but if you suffer and want to try, you will improve your style and maybe your health too .

Anti-tragus piercing

Here we have the opposite piercing to the previous one, the anti tragus. Where it puts? Well, just in the piece of cartilage that is opposite the tragus and that also works as a “cap” for the ear, but in the lower area. As a general rule, you usually place a ball pendant, but if you prefer to innovate you can try a small ring.

Snug Piercing

The snug is similar to the previous one, but instead of the lower area it is placed a little higher, in the inner cartilage of the ear . The most common is to place a curved earring with balls at the ends to give more visibility to the accessory you wear.

Piercing Rook

This can be more painful. The rook is made right in the cartilage that is above the drink , in the inner part of the ear.

Piercing Daith

The piercing daith is fashionable and is one of the most made girls today. It is another of those that supposedly help to reduce the migraine pains . The hole is made in the inner cartilage of the ear, just where the acupuncture needles would be placed . Right from there arises the belief that it helps to cure migraines.

Industrial Piercing

This piercing has an aspect that could be said to be coarser. It is a bar that joins the upper part of the ear with some of the heights of the helix . Depending on how you want it, it can be longer if you join it with a low or shorter helix hole if you join it with a superior helix. A matter of taste!

Conch Piercing

It is a piercing that hugs the ear . How? Very easy, the hole is made in the lower part of the ear and then a slope that surrounds the outside is placed. Its name comes from the shape that originates when the earring is wrapped around the edge of the ear, supposedly in the shape of a shell or sea shell.

Outer Conch Piercing

As its name suggests, it is similar to the previous one but instead of being so low, it is located at the top of the ear , in the largest part of the auditory pavilion. There is no need to use a slope that “embraces” the edge as in the interior case. Laura Escanes shows a simple way to take it in an image published on her Instagram. So you can take ideas.

Orbital Piercing

The orbital piercing is completely different from the ones we have seen before. It is a slope that is placed parallel to the low helix by means of two holes . It can be complicated to put, but in originality none wins.
