    Default Another cartilage piece.

    Have decided to get another ring in my cartilage next to my other, just a little further up.
    But I was just wondering what it's actually called? Pinna & helix are ones I have from other people when I asked.
    Also do any of you guys have it done? I like the idea, well love the idea but wondered if any of you had pics of yours if you have it done?
    thankyou muchly ;]

    When I made an appointment I asked to get the top of my ear pierced. Pointing to it is a good idea

    It is most commonly known as a 'helix' piercing, but is also referred to as a 'pinna' piercing. Just show them where you want it is the best best if you're not sure. =]

    , 2x 1.2mm helix, 1x 1.2mm Conch - right ear
    Navel (1.6mm)
    Tongue (1.6mm)
    Nostril (1mm)
    Lip x 2 left side (1.2mm)

    Retired:-

    I have a double cartilage piercing and they are right next to each other.
    I think they look good.
    I'm a fan of forward pinnas though too, even if I wouldn't get one.
    Current
    Ears: Left forward and standard helix, left tragus, left daith. Right rook, right double inner conch. 1g and 14g lobes.
    Face: Right nostril, septum, vertical labret.
    Other: Tongue, standard and inverse navel, left and right nipple.
