A conch piercing is a great way to add some personality to your ears in an interesting and unique way. Conch piercings are done on either the upper or lower concha area of the ear, and sit right in the center of the ear. The piercings owe their name to the curved shape of the ear.
We recommend visiting a high-end boutique piercer like RBI Tattoo for a professional experience, supportive guidance, high-quality jewelry, a clean and sterile environment, and advice on piercing aftercare.
Getting the piercing
Once here, our professional piercer will mark the spot on your cartilage where the piercing will be made. Conch piercings are a bit intimidating for both piercers and receivers of the jewelry. Since the cartilage itself is being pierced, it may take a bit longer to heal and is more susceptible to infection.
Have no fear! Our team is qualified at performing conch piercings and will stop at nothing to ensure your safety and comfort.
After the piercing, be sure to take tender care of the area. As forementioned, conch piercings are a bit more intense and require more care than standard ones. Full recovery can take three to nine months.
Jewelry ideas for tragus piercings
Studs or bars – Either studs or bars are great picks for jewelry for your new piercing. They’re small, comfortable, and easy to change in and out.
Hoops – Small hoops are perfect conches too! Since the piercing is in the center of the ear, a hoop can be of varying size to stretch out to hug different parts of the lobe.
Gold – Gold jewelry is a timeless and luxurious choice for conch piercings. It comes in different karats (purity levels) such as 14K or 18K, and a variety of colors including yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold.
Titanium – Titanium is another widely used material for conch piercing jewelry. It is lightweight, durable, and biocompatible, meaning it is much less likely to cause irritation or allergic reactions.
Stainless steel – One of the safest metals for a fresh piercing. Stainless steel if hypoallergence and designed specifically to be worn on the body.
