Follow the curve of your cartilage around the ear until you reach the side of your face (i.e. right above the tragus) and this piercing area is called a forward helix. You can also have double or triple forward helix piercings.
The forward piercing is one of the most painful ear piercings, so keep it in mind before making. Your sleeping has to change a bit during the healing time. Troubling the pierced spot can cause inflammation and more pain for you. It might even delay the healing process due to reoccurring injuries. Healing will take about three months but you shouldn’t change the jewelry immediately – wait until you feel no pain and discomfort.

Don’t make multiple ear piercings on both sides at once. You need one ear to sleep on, use to talk on the phone, etc., and getting cartilage pierced in both ears at the same time can be incredibly difficult to heal—if not impossible.
