Ear Piercing Areas

Lobe: The lobe is the lower section of the ear, which is one of the most common piercings.

Helix: The helix is positioned in the upper cartilage of the ear.

Forward Helix: The forward helix is placed on the curve on the outer portion of the ear. 

Rook: The Rook is located in the cartilage of the upper ear. The rook piercing is performed in a vertical manner, allowing the rings and curved balls to face downward.

Daith: The daith is located within the inner fold above the ear canal. This is located between the rook and tragus, placed where the outer ridge of your ear meets your inner ear. Daith piercings usually are forward facing, so that the stones are clearly visible. 

Tragus: The tragus is positioned on the outer cartilage area, which is located in the sector of the triangular flap. It is above the lobe and is the harder section of the ear on the side of your face. 

Antitragus: The antitragus is in the outer cartilage area, and is the triangular flap above the lobe, opposite to the tragus piercing. 

Conch: The conch is located in the middle section of the ear. This piercing can be performed on the inner or outer portion to the ear. The inner conch is located in the lower cartilage, while the outer conch is located sits in the upper area of the cartilage.

Septum: The middle part of the nose. Our huggies and clickers are great options for septum piercings.
