    Default Can you have an industrial with a forward helix and helix?

    I have a forward helix and a helix piercing but I am thinking about having an industrial piercing and wondered if that's possible or would they be in the way?

    I'm torn between that and another forward helix but would really love an industrial

    Thanks

    Future Piercings: Either another two forward helix or an industrial if I have the room

    I think it's basically anatomy dependant and also depends on the angle you want the scaffold piercing at.

    An industrial IS a forward helix and a helix, lol. It would depend where your current piercings are if you can fit an industrial. You could always turn one of them into the top/bottom of the industrial :P

    I am assuming you're talking about getting it on your left ear? Cos you don't really have room on your right with a forward helix and a helix,ar if you meant your right ear then it is very unlikely, there isn't really room, your best bet is to get your left one looked at. It is anatomy dependent though so go to your piercer and get it looked at, you can always get a forward helix instead if you're not suited

    Or do as Stacey said, retire one you already have and get the other turned in to part of an industrial. Consider a vertical one too if you really want it on the right ear.

    Do you have a picture of your ear? You might be able to get one at a different angle to normal so it's more diagonal than horizontal to accommodate what you've already got if your anatomy suits it
