    Default Industrial Piercing?

    Hello, I'm back again with a new question! I'm thinking about getting an industrial piercing instead of a helix on my right ear. However, I realised my ears are weird with really thick rims so I was wondering if it is still anatomically correct for an industrial piercing?

    Modifications: 5mm septum punch,
    coinslot ear cartilage removal

    I agree. You have a decent amount of rim there to possibly accommodate an industrial, but it also depends how much your antihelix (the thick cartilage that runs parallel to the outer rim) sticks out. A piercer would be able to assess the viability of an industrial.

    I love them, but I'm not anatomically correct for it.
    4 lobes in each ear
    1 right tragus
    1 right helix
    1 left nose
    1 right & 1 left nipples
    1 VCH
    1 right rook
    1 right inner conch
    1 floating navel
    1 left daith

    Retired: left tragus, 2 lobes in each ear, left nipple, 2x navel

    Want: 1 vertical tongue, 1 Madonna, HCH,

    Alright, I'll be going down to my piercer's in a few hours' time, I'll be sure to ask him!

    I was always under the impression that since my ears don't look like the majority of ears I have seen, I automatically assumed that I won't be suitable for an industrial lol. I'll be sure to ask my piercer about it, and I'm sorry about your ears not being anatomically correct for an industrial. I'm sure you rock your other ear piercings amazingly though!
