|HELIX & TOES
Do you love piercings but not sure if you want just one or go all out and have multiple? Especially one located on the upper ear? What about a piercing that is completely different than just your standard earlobe piercing? If you answered yes on any of these questions, you might want to consider the helix piercing. It’s a subtle, yet gorgeous ear piercing that is rapidly gaining momentum and is surprisingly one of the least painful piercings to get done! Taking about six to eight months to heal, it’s located on the outer, upper ear and can provide the perfect amount of bling without causing a scene. The helix piercing is like an onion- it has many layers and opportunity to design your ear to match the styles you’ve always wanted. Another layer is the double helix- which is basically two piercings next to each other on the outer, upper ear. Or you can go the next layer and show everyone who’s boss by getting the triple forward helix. That’s where the frontal cartilage area on the ear is pierced, usually with three pieces. If you don’t mind a longer healing process and sleeping on your back or opposite side isn’t a problem for you, go for it. Your helix piercing will be a look that you should love to play around and decorate your ear with for a long time to come!
