    Smile Helix Orbital or Industrial??

    Hello lovely people!!

    I'm currently debating between either getting an orbital helix or an industrial piercing and seriously can't make my mind up! Has anyone here got experience with either of these or both?? Which do you prefer? How does the healing compare? Opinions please Thanks!

    Pictures of your ears? It might be a moot point of discussion. You can paste them here ( http://imgur.com/ ) and share the link.
    Piercings: 3x Lobe (L), Single Upper Lobe (R), Conch (R), 1.6mm Septum

    To do list: Angel Bites, Tongue, Nipples, Navel, Tragus.

    I have both, one on each ear. For me they were big very similar to heal, throbbed for a week or two and had the bump for a while but they both healed beautifully. I personally prefer my orbital just cos is so different and I had wanted it for ages. It's really your call, and depends on your anatomy, I will try to find my experience diary of my orbital on here.

    Are you anatomically suited to both? Seeing a pic would help but tbh I'm not that keen on orbitals and love industrials so that would likely be my answer anyway.

    I totally agree here with you.
    Defo go and see a good piercer who knows their onions. Industrials like all cartilage piercings can be a pain to heal but if done right they look amazing
    Current:
    3x Lobes
    R conch, L Daith, Rook, helix
    R and L Nostril, Septum, tongue, teardrop dermal, vertical Labret
    Sternum skin divers x2

    Retired:
    Labret
    Sternum surface bar
    L Industrial
    R Nipple

    Wanting:
    R Rook, L conch, Philtrum
