Industrial piercings are located on the ear. Rather than one single hole, they use two holes through the cartilage of the ear. The two holes are linked together by one barbell. Industrial piercings don’t have to go across the top of the ear. You can get other placements with this type of piercing, they can run vertical to your ear instead of horizontal.
If you have long hair that you’re constantly brushing and grooming, maybe a horizontal industrial piercing wouldn’t be the best bet for you. You might find that brushing your hair is a lot harder with the bristles getting caught on the horizontal bar. With a vertical piercing, there would be less risk of pulling on the piercing and causing a lot of unnecessary pain.

You’ll have to keep in mind that you’re getting two piercings, not just one, when you opt for an industrial piercing. Therefore, any pain you would ordinarily feel with a piercing will be doubled just because you’re going through the procedure twice.
