Here’s everything you need to know before having an ear piercing.
There are many types of ear piercing that you can do, depending on where exactly you want it and on the level of pain you can handle. Starting with the basics, there is the lobe piercing and the upper lobe piercing. These two are the less painful ear piercings – as they are on the fleshy area of the ear – and almost everyone has one or two of them. These piercings are also very versatile once wholly recovered, and you can choose among a great variety of earrings to wear, from hoops and huggies to studs. Next there is the helix piercing. This piercing is on the upper rim of the ear and it is also referred as the cartilage piercing and due to that it can hurt a little bit, but not that much compared to other cartilage piercings. You may feel some pain at the moment but it will eventually go away. Another fashionable ear piercing is the tragus one. This specific one pierces the part of the cartilage on the outside of your ear canal. This area of your ear is a bit thicker and therefore you may feel a little bit uncomfortable, but it won’t last for long. Additionally, there is the snug piercing. This specific piercing is located in the middle of the ear’s outer rear, piercing both the ear’s inner and outer parts. It goes through a thicker area of the cartilage; you will feel an intense pressure while getting it done. One of the most painful piercings to get is the conch piercing. This piercing goes through the inner shell of your ear, which is also a very thick part of the cartilage. While having it you may experience some pressure and pain during the process. Lastly, there is the famous industrial piercing. The industrial piercing is considered the most painful piercing as it is not just one piercing but two in two different parts of the sensitive cartilage. We would suggest that if you can not handle the pain well, don’t go for that type of piercing.
