Conch piercings are a type of cartilage piercing that’s named after the large spiral shape that ears take after. Perhaps it’s because of the way they delicately adorn the ear in a bold year wearable way, or it could be for the fact that they’re highly customizable—pair with a curated ear or wear as is. Within the world of conch piercings, there are options of placement (inner versus outer) and type of jewelry (stud or hoop).

Conch piercings take place on the cartilage of the ear (the part with the thicker flesh), it’s bound to be more painful than the lobe. The healing process can take anywhere from three to nine months and this varies due to how well the aftercare is followed and the client’s general health. If you’re a side-sleeper, you’ll have to avoid sleeping on the side of the piercing until it’s fully healed. Both experts agree that sleeping on the piercing could cause irritation and delay the healing process.
