8 Types of Ear Piercings ...

Since the dawn of time humans have decorated their bodies with jewelry - body piercing being a popular choice for both genders. There are numerous styles of body piercing, including many different ways to pierce ears. Here are some of them:

1. Tragus Piercing

The tragus is located at the opening of the ear and consists of a pretty hefty part of the ear cartilage. Tragus piercing requires small gauge piercing needles to make room for jewelry like thin circular wire rings or captive bead rings. During the healing time wearing earphones can irritate the skin and prevent the ear from healing fast, although the chances of stretching or tearing are negligible.
