Ear piercings are the most popular type of body piercing and hiding them can be a big deal if you attend a school that does not allow â€˜non-standardâ€™ ear piercings. Many schools allow ear cartilage piercings but some do not allow anything other than ear lobe piercings and most frown on stretched ears. Thankfully there is a great choice of ear piercing retainers available. A well-chosen ear piercing retainer will hide your ear piercing and make it very hard to spot.
Auricle piercings are a popular ear piercing located in the ear cartilage. They are pierced on the ear rim, usually about halfway down. Most people are able to get this piercings and auricle piercings are usually quite easy to heal.
I have had an auricle piercing for years and it’s a great placement for wearing funky jewellery. That part of your ear is easy to keep clean and I love trying out cute ear cuffs, jewelled studs and new designs in it. Depending on what shape jewellery your is, you might find some auricle piercing jewellery uncomfortable to sleep in, so I recommend keeping a regular labret stud to change back at night.
Auricle Piercing Rings
Wearing a ring in your auricle piercing looks great and there is a huge variety of rings you can wear in it. Ball closure rings, circular barbells, smooth segment rings and body spirals are all suitable for wearing in an auricle piercing. Whichever you choose it is important to choose an auricle ring with the right inner diameter â€“ too big and it will stick out, too small and it will be uncomfortably tight. To find this out just measure the thickness of that part of your ear â€“ or maybe get a friend to measure for you!
