1. LOBE - The lobe refers to the soft lower section of the ear. Many combinations of lobe piercings are possible for a unique look. Designs are bespoke for each individual.

2. ANTITRAGUS - The antitragus is the triangular flap of ear that sits above the lobe, opposite of the tragus.

3. ANTIHELIX - Sits slightly further into the ear than the Helix. 

4. CONCH - The conch sits on the middle part of the inside ear. Rings extends across both the inner and outer ear. Alternatively, studs can be framed by the plane of the conch.

5. CONTRACONCH - A new style of piercing, the contraconch perches on the convex part of the ear between the conch and the helix.

6. HELIX - This type of piercing is located along the inside ridge of the upper ear. On either side of the helix sits the forward helix and the lobe.

7.   ROOK - Next to the rook, the rook can be any part of the flat plane of the upper ear above the contraconch. This area is perfect for studs.

8. FORWARD HELIX - The forward helix is the frontal part of the ear that follows the helix. 

9. ROOK - The rook piercing is a vertical piercing through the ridge in the inner ear closest to the head. Curved barbells are ideal for this area.

10. DAITH - Between the tragus and rook, this subtle piercing is the perfect place to showcase a ring.

11. TRAGUS -The tragus is the cartilage that sits in front of the ear canal.
