Types of Piercings:
Piercing can be done all across the body, and there are quite a few spots that are more popular and aesthetically pleasing. Take your time in deciding which one is right for you before getting one done.
Helix piercing it’s really just the upper part of your earlobe. Typically, this is done so that smaller studs or loops can be placed in the area, along with the traditional earlobe piercing.
Close to the helix area is the tragus. A tragus piercing is essentially the outward facing part of the inner ear and close to the ear canal. The cartilage in this area is quite a bit thicker than in the helix area, so it will be a tad more uncomfortable to get than other types of ear piercings.
Nose piercings are one of the oldest and most widely recognized forms of body art. There are a number of different ways to showcase a nose piercing. Common applications include a traditional bull ring that is made between both nostrils, as one would see on a Spanish fighting bull.
Other types of nose piercings have one looped ring through a part of the nostril, or even on both sides, known as a septum piercing. The unique aspects of nose rings make them very popular with younger individuals trying out their first piercings.
