Thread: Floating industrial? Don't know the name!

  1. #1

    Default Floating industrial? Don't know the name!

    So I went to my local piercers on Monday to ask about getting my industrial, unfortunately my ear wasn't suitable. He did explain he could order the bar in and bend it for me etc to create the effect of an industrial. Hard to explain so will show a pic :P so went in today and got it done! Out of all my cartilage piercings this was the only one I had herd the 'pop'. Anyway, I absolutely love it. I feel like it is super unique, haven't seen it in any pictures but I might be wrong! Really finishes off my ear really well hope all goes well with my healing! Here's the pic, if anyone has a proper name for this that would be great too

    It's awesome!!

    I mean technically it's 2 outer conches with 1 piece of jewellery in it. But you can call it whatever you like ^_^

    There's no "proper" when it comes to piercing names, just anatomy.

    As Hazel said, you can call it what you want, but if I had it, I'd probably refer to it as an outer conch industrial, or something.

    Looks good though! ^_^

    If it were me I'd be calling it a 'staple piercing' because that's what it looks like haha. It's cool. ^_^
