As you can see, you can practically pierce every part of your ear! Now that you know what each type of piercing is called, let’s take a look at some specific ear piercings to get a better understanding.

Surface Tragus

This piercing is a surface tragus, whose placement makes it seem as though it should be a cheek piercing, and is actually considered in the industry as a part of the ear. It’s a simple piercing with two rounded tips at each end. This tattoo is also perfect for those people looking for something that shows off their bold side.

Tragus

This piercing is actually directly on the tragus, which is that small piece of cartilage on the inner side of your ear, right next to your cheek. Its design is a simple, but a beautiful triplet of shining jewels that bring attention, not only to the uniqueness of their placement but also to the clarity of the jewels as they sparkle.

Tragus II

This piercing is the one directly across from the tragus and it’s called the antitragus. This piercing in particular is shaped like a mini wedding ring. This is a regal look for those going for something more regal and light and simple.. This tattoo has become more and more popular in the more recent years and looks good on anyone.  

AntiTragus II

This one is another example of an antitragus piercing. You can request that it be lower on your ear so that they can sit closer to the upper lobe. This piercing, especially, is a little bit edgier than its alternative but it’s still super light and goes well with whatever you’re wearing. This tattoo is overall, a pretty good look

This third helix is an example of how a helix can look a little different in everyone’s ear, and because some people’s helix is more pronounced than others. It’s a small variation that is still a pleasure to look at and pretty easy to style as well and very easy to change up when you want to. It’s easy and versatile.

Is one industrial simply not enough? You can make a huge statement by getting a double industrial that will allow the bars to cross for an unusual yet satisfying look. In the above example, we love the contrasting metallic colors of the jewelry which offers more drama but to keep things simple, you can always go with the same type of jewelry for each.

Flat

This piercing is named for where it is placed on the ear. These piercings are placed in the flat cartilage in the upper ear.

It’s a cute piercing with a lot of potential to accessorize and mix and match in any way that you might like. It’s another reminder that these piercings are a great way to accessorize with.

Forward Helix

Instagram

The forward helix is just a bit lower than the regular helix piercing. It’s on the small outer rim of cartilage at the top front of your ear. It looks both youthful and edgy and is definitely a top pick that wants to add something a bit more unique to their general aesthetic and help spice it up a bit.

Forward Helix II

This type of piercing is good for when you still want to accessorize with something but don’t want to make your earrings your main place where attention is drawn.

Double Rook

Do you want to make that rook piercing twice as nice? Consider doubling up in the area for an inspired and fun look. For a double rook, consider smaller studs and jewelry that won’t crowd the real estate in the area.

Conch

25 ear piercings
Instagram

This piercing is called a conch, and it’s located right above the antihelix in the middle portion of your inner ear. These are some of the most popular piercings, but be warned, these definitely hurt. Where this piercing is located is home to a  thick layer of cartilage that holds the shape of your ear. Can you take the pain?

Conch II

25 ear piercings
Instagram

This is a triple conch piercing, meaning that there’s triple the amount of pain. But hey, no pain no gain,  right? This piercing variation is perfect for anyone who wants something that’s a little bit edgier, while still going for something that can be elegant and classy. You can definitely switch it up depending on how you’re feeling then.

Conch Ring

Instagram

Here’s an example that shows you other ways to decorate the conch ear piercings. While most people go with a stud for jewelry here, you can absolutely buck that trend and choose an earring instead. It offers a dramatic look that wraps around the ear. It’s not extreme but the ring does make you look like one tough cookie.

Daith

25 ear piercings
Instagram

This piercing goes through the smallest fold of cartilage in your ear, where the outer ridge that runs along the top of your ear connects to your inner ear, just above the ear canal.

This last daith piercing is simple and clean and is cut out in the shape of a moon. Because this part of the ear is slightly obscured, this piercing pulls your attention to something that someone might not usually pay attention to in the beginning. These piercings are perfect in complete sets and pull them together to a nice finish.

As with any form of body decoration or body modification, ear piercings are a form of self-expression and you should feel free to do so with as much jewelry as you like!

Cool Conch

A conch piercing can be in the form of a ring like you see above or a stud or bar. It’s called a conch because of its semicircular apse, shaped like half a dome. This of the seashell! You’ll see plenty more of these on this list so get ready for some variety!

Daith Ring

25 subtle inner-ear piercings
@tfhb (Source)

A daith is a piercing through the inner cartilage fold of the ear, just above the earhole. Rings in this are most popular because they accentuate the shape of the inner ear.

Conch Stud

@mxg_beauty (Source)

Here’s a conch piercing that’s not a ring around the ear, but instead, a handsome little stud. If you’re looking for something very low-key, this would be the right approach.

Conch and Upper Helix

@piercedinchadstone (Source)

The helix is the rim of the external ear. Rings around the area are popular, but this curved piece of jewelry looks fantastic along the upper ear.

The Rook

@tfhb (Source)

A rook piercing goes through the inner edge of the uppermost ridge in your ear. It’s one step above a daith piercing, which is the smaller ridge above the ear canal, and two steps above the Tagus, the curved bulb covering your inner ear. Check out this handsome piece of jewelry with contrasting decorative ends.

Industrial and Daith

25 subtle inner-ear piercings
@alyson_wxnderland (Source)

There’s a daith inside and through the upper and mid helix, you’ll find an industrial piercing. Depending on the shape of your ear, daith piercings can be more or less visible. As you can see, this person has one that is deep-set and therefore is like a little secret.

Smooth Rook

@rachel.kubiak (Source)

Here’s an example of simple rook jewelry that doesn’t catch too much attention. You can get flashier if you’d like, but for a subtle look, you might consider something similar.

All in the Helix

@inkcouturenyc (Source)

Here, we find four helix piercings that extend from the lower to the upper helix. These, of course, will garner more attention but they’re still rather subtle. There could be some sort of dangling chain connecting them all but this person has decided to keep it simple.

Bendy Industrial

@inkcouturenyc (Source)

Most people associate that straight bar from one part of the helix to the next, but a curved bar might be the best option for you. This simple wave shape looks unique.

Tattoo and Flat

25 subtle inner-ear piercings
@inkcouturenyc (Source)

The tattoo and piercing combination in the upper ear is called a flat piercing. As you can see, this area is smooth and free from folds making it a great spot to get creative. This cute little flower with a diamond stud is a nice look.

Double Opal Rook

@piercingsbyaaron (Source)

Rooks can take some pretty fabulous jewelry. Here we find a piece that’s sweetly punctuated by two opals. There’s just the right amount of glitter and dazzle here.

Two Flat

@ericaneedles (Source)

Stacked piercings are a great option for the flat of the ear. Here, we find a pair that looks beautifully situated inside the upper ear.

Triple Conch

Here’s another stacked-style piercing featuring a triple conch piercing with studs of varying sizes. Always do your best to find jewelry that will work in harmony with the shapes around it. This is perfect.

Double Rook

@fyrebodyarts (Source)

The rook is a weird place to get pierced some people claim it’s one of the most painful spots while others say there are fewer nerve endings in the area. It is a completely personal experience but take into account that a double rook might be double the pain.

Dizzying Daith

25 subtle inner-ear piercings
@fyrebodyarts (Source)

A daith piercing is another spot that people tend to complain about. We love this circular jewelry in this one.

Triple Conch

@ash.vellier (Source)

Here’s another triple conch piercing that features a purple piece at its center. This looks pretty wonderful, but we wish the shape of the stone were more round.

Painful Daith

25 subtle inner-ear piercings
@lottiestarr_x (Source)

“Definitely the most painful experience of my life,” the person wrote of their new daith piercing. Apparently, the person doing it had misshaped the heart which made the jewelry extremely difficult to install. The person had to be pierced again to get it to work. Ouch.

Yellow Gold Conch

Check out this moon shape in the conch. What a beautiful piece for this semi-secret spot inside the inner ear.

Triple Industrial

Well, this was a choice and it’s the least bit subtle, but we want you to know that there are options. This triple industrial piercing is absolutely wild!

Stacked Rook

@piercersuzanne (Source)

We love this person’s taste in jewelry. The small twig-shaped piece looks excellent as a conch. We also find two tiny little rings stacked through the rook.

Very Stacked Rook

25 subtle inner-ear piercings
@safepiercing (Source)

Why have just two when you can go for three? This is a larger gauge of piercing and feels more substantial. Live your life!

Two Flat & Two Helix

25 subtle inner-ear piercings
@sacredgold_london (Source)

This is a magical little constellation of piercings that features two helix and two flat piercings. Generally, we prefer a curved piece for the helix but this neat-looking vertical bar looks very nice.

Conch & Flat

25 subtle inner-ear piercings
@daria_voevodina (Source)

A conch piercing is the perfect spot to get a little jazzy with your jewelry. Here, we find the tiniest snake. There’s a diamond stud through the flat which helps bring so much sparkle.

@samypiercer (Source)

This person is doing the most and we don’t hate it. We love the choice of blue metallics and gems here. The three piercings through the helix balance the rook and tragus piercings. What a look! You too can get a curated look by working with an experienced piercer who can help guide you.

We hope you enjoyed these inner-ear piercings and will consider getting one yourself. These are fun because they can be virtually hidden with subtle pieces or grab attention with more intricate jewelry. Happy piercing!

It turns out you can get more than your ears pierced! Of course, you knew that but there’s an entire body modification community dedicated to pushing the limits of what decorating the body looks like. Unlike tattoos, piercings can get even wilder because of their 3D nature. Over the last several decades, piercers have gotten bold with their perfected capabilities and innovations have achieved peak extreme.

We decided to take a look at some unconventional body piercings that you might not have even known were even possible. These body modifications go beyond traditional piecing techniques and utilize everything from microdermal implants and even embedding jewelry into teeth. We thought we knew every part of the body it was possible to pierce but wow, were we tortuously wrong. Take a poke around these 45 bizarre piercings and be sure to take inspiration from them if you’re feeling courageous. Some images are upsetting. We start rather modestly before the

The Whole Hip

@diamondcity_tattoo (Source)

This piercing looks painful and that’s apparently because it is. Microdermal implants allow you to pierce just about any part of the body. The jeweled top is anchored to a base that’s implanted under the skin. This piercing covers the whole hip, meaning that this one comes with far more pain than anyone might think. This one is definitely wild.

All the Lip

instagram image
@piercing_by_andrea (Source)

Some of these piercings go right through the middle of the bottom lip, and the others sit just underneath it. Either way, these piercings give anyone who has them something to be remembered by. These piercings are definitely bold and have some edge to them and with a total of about 10 extra holes in your face,  it’s a look. 

The Eyelid

instagram image
@extremebodypiercingcentral (Source)

This one is absolutely insane, it’s a piercing that goes right through your eyelid. It’s also extremely risky seeing as it could easily be infected and risk you losing your eyesight. This piercing is absolutely one of the stranger ones and it makes you wonder why someone would decide to get this piercing. Beauty’s in the eye of the beholder.  

Gum Piercings

instagram image
@mouthmattersuk (Source)

The gum piercings are almost painful to look at. No matter what shape or size they take, these look like something you’d see in a movie.  They definitely look like they’d be really painful to have done but for people who can bear that pain, it’s absolutely a unique look that’ll definitely be a conversation piece sometime in the future.

Between

@santa_cruz_tattoo (Source)

This next choice is a bold one because it’s an implant/piercing right between the breast despite how simple it looks, it does look like it could be a bit painful. While it’s true that is definitely a popular place for tattoos, these kinds of piercings come as more of a surprise. They do employ a certain sense of edginess.

Rhino

@modifiedsickboy666 (Source)

This piercing definitely isn’t one that you see every day, it just happens to be directly on the tip of the nose. Its unique location and orientation make it a standout choice for those who want to have a unique topic of conversation.  This piercing is for people who want a look that lets people know how unique they are.

Forehead

instagram image
@piercer.babes (Source)

This pair of piercings look a little less intense than any of the others, it’s a vertical bridge piercing right through the skin of the forehead. These two in particular are bright blue and bright pink in color, and it’s easy to come to the conclusion that these aren’t the only colors this piercing can come in. It’s a looker.

Stretched Nostrils

instagram image
@syl43mc (Source)

These piercings add a few extra holes to your nose and stretch them out a little wider than normal. If you’ve ever wanted to stick a pencil through your nose, then this is the piercing for you. All you need to do is to pierce both nostrils and stretch them over time until you’ve got gaping holes in your nose.

Finger Web Piercings

instagram image
@becky.h18 (Source)

These hand piercings are definitely a sight to behold. Here there’s a total of about five piercings that kinda make you wanna squirm. But there’s definitely a very bold few who might be looking for this kind of edginess in their lives. Now we’ll be honest, this one isn’t for all of us. If it’s for you, go for it.

Toe Web

instagram image
@warmartink (Source)

This one is just like the finger web piercing, except it’s on your foot instead.  This one is a little less extreme than the one on your hand, but the concept is still the very same. It’s possible that the person who got this piercing wanted it to be a bit more subtle to keep it their little secret. It’s valid!

Stretched Achilles

instagram image
@extremebodypiercingcentral (Source)

This piercing might just turn you into the greek legend that it’s named after. This is a stretched Achilles, and it puts what almost looks like a ball bearing right through your heel. It’s a bit strange to look at, but if you’re looking to put a hole through your foot, then this is absolutely the one piercing for you.

Chin Piercing

instagram image
@extremebodypiercingcentral (Source)

This piercing is another of the unique choices on this list. It’s a pair of piercings that go right through the top and underside of the chin. This one is definitely a unique choice for anyone, and it certainly looks like it could be painful. But hey, everyone has their own style. So this is definitely a choice for some.

A Lot of Chin

This person’s piercings are a set of three chin piercings, as well as a pair of fang piercings on the upper lip. It definitely shows that this person is afraid of the extreme. These piercings are cool, and they definitely give this guy something to talk about, and something to be remembered by. His “fangs” will definitely stick with you.

Tied Up

@lalla_piercing (Source)

This piercing is styled after the back of a corset, and with the ribbon that is pulled through each set of hoops, it does a successful job at living up to its name. This “corset piercing” specifically is made up of 14 separate dermal piercings, and the ribbons that connect them certainly add a bit of customization to the person’s preference.

Corset Part II

30+ crazy-cool ear piercings | looking for some crazy-cool ear piercings? check out all the fun ways you can get poked!
@insta_body_mod (Source)

This corset piercing is a bit more extreme. Here we count at least thirty-three separate dermal piercings in the back, and this time the ribbon that goes through them is pulled through in an even more intricate pattern than the last one. That does bring up a question, do they prefer to sleep on their side, or on their back?

Poor Lip

@piercing_by_andrea (Source)

Here’s another set of lip piercing, this one is pretty symmetrical too. We count a total of seven points of piercings in this one, and it’s a valid voice that some people make for themselves. This piercing is perfect for people who have a certain style, and for those who excel at it, they can pull it off pretty well.

Giant Lobes

@thewickedkat (Source)

This piercing is a little like the nose piercing we showed you earlier, except this time it’s an ear piercing. This gauge piercing is stretched open pretty wide, so much so that you might actually be able to fit your wrist like a bracelet. It’s wild and one of the biggest stretches among these extreme piercings. It’s a unique choice.

Straight Through the Cheeks

@folkin___around (Source)

This piercing goes right through both cheeks. Of course, it raises some questions when it comes to logistics, but to each their own, right? This piercing probably isn’t one you leave in when you go to sleep, can you imagine how uncomfortable it would be. But hey, if you’re down for the trials and tribulation,  do what you gotta do.

Metal Mouth

@domidomdom666 (Source)

All the black jewelry here definitely makes these piercings look a little more extreme, but these are definitely a little tamer than some of the things we’ve already shown you today. There are at least seven piercings in the mouth area alone. All these piercings give this guy a unique look and it just how much variation there can be.

The Bridge

@k0ldsv3d (Source)

Among the number of extreme piercings here, the one that stands out most is absolutely the bridge piercing. Because you don’t usually see this area pierced or gauged, seeing it will leave it in your mind for a while. This piercing has also changed the shape of this person’s nose in a very interesting way. It’s sure to stand out.

Heavy

@allthepiercingsandmods (Source)

Once again this piercing is just one of a few extreme piercings that this person decided to get. This person’s lobe is both weighted and stretched out. Ear weights are a popular tool for people with extreme piercings. Among the others, however, is the piercing beneath the lip that has a very prominent shape and size among the rest. Cool?

Subdermal

@steve_haworth (Source)

This one is called a sub-dermal piercing, and it’s implanted right underneath the skin on the back of the hand. It’s a silicone shape that’s implanted underneath the skin to give it a raised appearance. This one in particular looks kind of like a gear. This one is unique, it’s not something that you see very often, it’s kinda wild.

Stretched Septum

instagram image
@modified.pantheist (Source)

This is an example of a stretched septum. You can actually see the edge of the gauge through both sides of the face. This also isn’t the only extreme piercing that this person has,  we can see another bridge piercing, as well as another chin piercing here too. There are also a few smaller piercings that draw less attention overall.

Dual Stretched Tongue Frenulum

instagram image
@extremebodypiercingcentral (Source)

Here’s a  dual stretched tongue frenulum piercings because nothing is off-limits. These two are definitely a bit more out of the box. There’s also the piercing on the underside of the tongue that kinda pulls the who look together. It’s absolutely not something that the everyday person would get, and the people looking for something more unique would look here.

Smiley

instagram image
@luna_summers_tattoo (Source)

The Smiley piercings are a lip frenulum piercing through the hood of flesh underneath the lip, this one is a bit more common to see than the tongue frenulum piercing. When they smile, the person they’re looking at is gonna get a good look at this one. It’s a little less extreme and the name is also pretty cute too.

Forearms

instagram image
@ant_hatter69 (Source)

Just like the studded hip piercing, we showed earlier, you can also get dermal piercings in other places. This guy got them in his forearms, which is definitely a very unique choice. Either way, these piercings are pretty cool to look at, but we can’t imagine the amount of pain this guy was in when he was getting these done.

Snake Eyes

instagram image
@rich.ink.art (Source)

This piercing goes right through the tip of the tongue. Overall it’s a pretty simple piercing that goes horizontally. It’s called a snake eye, or a venom piercing and we can definitely see why. This one doesn’t look like it’d hurt too much, but who knows, we haven’t gotten one done. This piercing actually matches the one in his nose.

Large Labrets

instagram image
@thiicc_daddy (Source)

These show that stretched labrets aren’t only for your nose, but also for your cheeks and the skin on the chin around them. While it is possible that these could complicate eating and drinking, we can’t really tell. These piercings definitely give the person a unique look when they walk away. There’s a  whole lot of customization with this piercing.

Back of the Neck

instagram image
@heart_of_lion_studio (Source)

These subdermal piercings in the back of the neck give a whole new meaning to the phrase “I’ve got eyes in the back of my head.” These piercings seem to be a lot tamer than some of the other piercings on the list. It’s a pair of really simple piercings that make a great conversation piece in a conversation.

Extremely Extreme Cheeks

instagram image
@insta_body_mod (Source)

These piercings are absolutely on the more extreme side of this list. That’s specifically because you can see right through the cheek and get a look at the teeth even when the mouth is closed. This piercing isn’t one that you see every day, it’s like something out of fantasy.

Tooth

Through the Jaw?

This piercing goes straight through the bottom of the mouth, which is a bit puzzling because how does that not leak? This one definitely isn’t one that comes to mind when you’re thinking about piercings. It’s a unique choice, that’s also quite unusual to see. In any case, this piercing is one of those that’ll always make you stand out.

This Face

This guy’s piercings are a bit much, but for the most part, they’re a combination of the ones that we’ve seen already and this just goes on to reinforce the idea that if you want to get something pierced, then you probably can. Not only is there a lot of metal here, there’s also a whole bunch of his personality.

Eyelids?

Now this one is a little bit much. This guy has a set of three horizontal bars placed over both of his eyes and going through his eyelids. It’s a bit wild to see honestly, and this one will stay with you even after you walk away from a conversation with him. We can say that this isn’t for everyone.

Uvula

This piercing goes right through the uvula. It’s definitely a unique piercing to get a piercing and we don’t think that there are a lot of people that would go for it. But to the special people that do, it’s absolutely a little secret that you can keep for yourself. This piercing is one for those that are a little braver.

There you go! 35 terrifying, bizarre, and extreme piercings that prove anything is possible! If you’re not utterly horrified, you might be inspired to get a piercing yourself! Yay! We’re glad something good came of this. If you’d like to see more thrilling piercings, keep scrolling below to experience even more strangeness.

Put Your Neck Out

This isn’t so bad, right? Just some surface piercings on the back of the neck. Do you have to sleep on your stomach until these heal?

That Poor Lobe

Why go through your lobe just once when you can do it twice? We don’t know why someone would want a piece of metal jammed through the lobe like this, but we support your personal choices, people.

Fine

Okay. These surface piercings really aren’t all that scary. These in the center of the chest are a nice touch.

What is the Purpose of a Nose?

Here’s where things start to get a little crazy. We’ve got a subdermal here on the hand, and two stretched holes in the nostrils. Who needs them, anyway? Oh, and what you’ve always wanted, a gaping hole in your chin.

Right Through the Old Gobbler

Nope! This looks like attempted murder. Who would… You know what? Do you, girl.

Not Today!

Well, we’ve got some more piercings in the neck, this time we are treated to four rings. Oof.

The Lid!?

This lid deserves revenge. Who would want to do this? Why? Ouch!

Sub-Clavicle

This is a crime. The person with these piercings claims they are bars that go beneath the clavicle which seems more like surgery than piercings to us.

When You’re Smiling, When You’re Smiling

Here’s a smiley piercing and after what we just saw, it’s not looking so outrageous. Wouldn’t most people with this need to physically lift their lip up like this to show it off?

Through the Cheek

You know, nothing surprises us at this point. If you want to impale your cheek, go right ahead.

Bridge

This is called a bridge piercing. Not because it creates a visual bridge between the eyes, but because it goes straight through the bridge of the nose.

Okay

Do people with this many piercings get sensitive around magnets? There’s no need to stop at one septum ring, it turns out you can shove about half a dozen in there.

We Don’t Understand Things

They make regular rings that are specifically made to fit on pinkies. You don’t have to go shoving metal into yourself, but you’re clearly free to.

Nope

@extreme_piercing_bs (Source)

Nope. We don’t want a tongue that looks like a literal pin cushion. Please bear with us as we take a moment to consider the mysteries of life.

Tragus

Here is a surface tragus because through the ear is just too boring. No, right in front of the ear on the cheek is just right.

What is Happening?

These metal ear coverings make the bottom part of this person’s ear look like it’s been chopped off. We don’t know why and frankly, not going to care.

Listen Closely

We’ve seen some people some pretty gauges in their ears, but this one the size of a salad plate takes the cake. Who knew skin could possibly stretch this much?

Lots of Holes

Subdermal implants are pretty wild as you can see they give this person the appearance of having baby deer horns. It looks like those or the piercings through the forehead would be some of the most painful.

One Holey Ear

This ear deserves a refund. It did not sign up for this.

The Nose Knows

Yes, you can get a nasal piercing that runs all the way through your nose, because who needs sinuses or air?

Put Us in the Dirt

We’re getting pretty traumatized at this point and we hope you’re hanging in there. What has this individual done to their ears? Why would you want giant holes in your nose? Sigh.

Metal Mohawk

Punk’s clearly not dead. This man went and got a row of spikes implanted in his head. Also, the red-dyed goatee is somehow the most ridiculous thing in this photo.
