#1 The Orbital Piercing
The orbital piercing is extremely unique due to its many different placements within the cartilage area. This piercing gets its name from its shape; it is two piercings connected together with one ring, creating the illusion of an orbit around the ear. The traditional orbital piercing is pierced through the lower piece of the conch, with a circular barbell. This can create a look similar to an “ear cuff” or it can be completely unique and different when done on the upper helix region. Although this piercing is specific to a circular barbell, the barbell can be customized with different colors and the “ball” that connects the circular barbell can be enclosed with different colored gems.
