Snug piercing also known as Anti-helix Piercing, the piercing is done at the inner fibrous of the ear, the piercing is not that typical and doesn’t look so great also as only micro-jewellery can only be used and the piercing is much more agonizing as compare to others piercings.
7. Orbital Piercing-
An orbital piercing relates to any piercing where two holes are made in the same part of the ear, usually so that a ring piece of jewellery can successfully go through both. While these can be done in a lot of places, generally people have this piercing in the helix or the lobe.
6. Anti-tragus Piercing-
The antitragus is the little cartilage next to your lobe and opposite your tragus. Based upon on your pain limit this piercing pretty painful both during the process and at the time to recover afterwards.
5. Daith Piercing-
