Thread: What should I call my new cartilage piercing?

  1. #1

    Default What should I call my new cartilage piercing?

    I've been wanting this piercing for years and I got it a week ago. I've always called it an orbital helix but my piercer charged me for an industrial and one guy I talked to told me it's not an orbital. Techinally an industrial is pierced with a straight barbell and an orbital with a circular barbell. What would you call it? Here's a picture of one that looks exactly like mine:

    Current:
    right ear- 4 lobes, auricle, fossa
    left ear- 3 lobes, conch, orbital helix
    philtrum, double high nostril, ankle surfaces x2, wrist surfacr.

    Retired:
    wrist surface,
    arm surface, navel, double inverse navel, horizontal navel surface, 2 labrets, snakebites, antitragus, 2 nies, 4 ankle surface

    Want:

    double tragus, 10 gauge helix, r
    ook- anti tragus industrial

    Ah! We had a back-up problem and a few posts got wiped, yours must have been one of them, sorry! :(

    But yeah, call it whatever you want basically.

    It seems more dependant on what jewellery you wear in it as to what someone may call it, in that photo I'd say it's a short industrial with a custom bent bar, if it had 2 bars in it I'd say they were 2 (possibly vertical) helices and with a ring in it would be an orbital.

    I think I said on the other post that I'd call it Robert
