Top 30 Different Types of Ear Piercings

You want to experiment with your body, go get your hair coloured go get your ear(s) pierced! You might just get that look you’ve been looking for! A piercing could make you look almost anything- flirty, cute, hot, classy, funky, elegant, or beautiful. And once you get pierced, there’s no going back. The only place where you’ll keep going back to is the piercing parlour. I won’t lie to you, it does hurt but soon enough you’ll see that the pain is totally worth it. And if you take care, it should heal in the blink of an eye. You must, however, refrain from wearing artificial jewelry for the first few months after getting pierced.

So below is a list of thirty different types of piercings that you can get this season:-

30. Scared? You’d want to start with the single ear lobe!


And sometimes one is all that matter! You just need a different piece of jewelry for different occasions.

29. Keep it cool and pretty with the double lobe.


Unlike the simple, single earlobe piercing, the double lobe will give you an exotic look. Wear a delicate studded earring on the upper one and heavy danglers or hoops on the lower piercing to get the perfect look. You could even wear a simple gold ring on the lower one.

28. Add a tinge of flirt with the single middle helix.


The helix is basically your cartilage piercing. You could try a fake loop on your cartilage before  coming to a final decision. A super thin gold ring or even an oxidized silver ring gives you a flirty look that people will notice almost immediately.

27. Go blunt with the closely placed double helix.


Perhaps adds to your no nonsense persona. Get the double helix, walk with an attitude and allow your ears to speak for you!

26. Get the aphrodisiac multiple helix!


Albeit the picture speak for itself, this look might just do the magic! If you know what I mean. Go for it even if it just for the thrill of it.

25. The classy touch with the outer conch piercing.


See that plain gold ring tightly held in its place on the cartilage. That called the out conch

24. The next level look with the outer double conch!

22. Get the triple inner conch piercing for the extra cuteness!

The horizontal industrial piercing is all you need to get the Gothic look. Albeit you could get many piercings but getting this done is like killing all birds with a single stone!

1. The beautiful mess type!


You needn’t have the same piercings on both ears. Albeit there are many ways in which you get pierced, the most amazing one is in the picture above. Get an industrial piercing along with an inner conch on any one of your ears and get a double outer conch on the other ear. Also don’t forget the triple lobe on both ears. This is probably the most gorgeous kind of piercing you can get!

So which piercing are you going to get?
