15 Super Bold Orbital Piercing Ideas And Tips

super bold orbital piercing ideas and tips cover

Orbital piercings are always placed in the ears and involve two holes with a circular piece of jewelry going through both. The circular shape of the jewelry is what defines and distinguishes the orbital style piercing from an industrial one, which uses a bar rather than a ring. These piercings can be placed anywhere in the ear, although the most popular choices of location include the earlobes and the helix.

An orbital piercing involves two holes. It’s helpful to keep in mind that the two perforations can, but don’t have to be done at the same time. If you already have an existing hole in your ear which will be suitable for an orbital ear piercing, you can simply add a second one. If you’re worried about the pain level, consider spreading the piercing process over two procedures – you can have one perforation done during the first appointment, let it heal, and come in to get the second perforation and complete the piercing.

The healing time of this type of piercing will depend primarily on the exact location on the ear. Cartilage piercings, such as a helix orbital piercing, generally take a relatively long time to heal – between 3 to 5 months. Lobe piercings require much shorter healing time, usually between 8 and 10 weeks.
