A Heartilage piercing is a new ear piercing trend that started to gain traction this year in New York and has since spread worldwide through countless Instagram citing. It was named by the site Popsugar because essentially it's two side by side cartilage piercings connected by a ring that has been bent into the shape of a heart. We're in love with this earring trend and think it breathes new life into an old staple!
How Did it Gain It's Trending Status?
Following on from his success with his heart daith piercings – where he again bends a ring into a heart shape - Robbie Milian is the most visible piercer doing these heartilage piercings. He says that it all started by taking off the balls of a simple cartilage bar and turning the ends inwards!
The procedure of this piercing is pretty interesting because often it's described as bending jewelry that has already been placed into the piercing. This is so that the shape fits perfectly to the anatomy of the wearer.
