10 Different Types of Ear Piercings That Are Most Popular Right Now

Added by Nicola Porrill on Mar 7, 2019

Anti Tragus Piercing

The anti tragus is on the upper side of the ear lobe, where it rises up slightly near the opening to the ear canal. Although it looks really pretty and cool, it's quite tricky to actually pierce, and it does need extra care when looking after it. On top of all of that, it's a really painful part of the ear to get pierced. It might look good, but seeing as I can't see my own ears, I'd rather leave it to others than have something like this done myself.


Rook Piercing

Find your daith, and go upwards slightly. The piece of cartilage which juts out just above the daith in a big fold is the rook. It's not for everyone, though, as the fold in the cartilage is actually an essential aspect of the piercing. Those whose ears don't have this fold aren't able to get a rook piercing. For those who can, it is generally considered to be one of the most painful parts of the ear to get pierced. Is it worth going through, for something which looks so unusual?
