The flat outer conch piercing perches on the cartilage tissue on the convex part of the ear above the ear lobe and between the inner conch and the helix. It is easy to confuse a flat outer conch piercing with a helix piercing , although the flat outer conch piercing is positioned slightly lower. An alternative position for a conch piercing is the trough, which is the middle area of the inside ear, also known as the inner conch.
Would you love to artistically decorate your body with a ring or hoop ear piercing on the outer conch? Then you need to be at least 14 years old and attend your piercing ceremony at one of our stores with your ID accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. If you are already 16 years old, you will only need your ID and a consent form completed and signed by a parent or legal guardian. If you are 18 years or older, all you need to bring along is your ID. Your piercing ceremony can get underway as soon as these conditions have been met. Our piercers first mark the precise position for the entry and exit point of the outer conch piercing and thoroughly disinfect the area. They then use a sharp sterile needle to pierce through the cartilage. This requires considerable pressure and may cause a stinging pain sensation that will subside after a few seconds. Sensitivity to pain varies from person to person.
Follow-up aftercare starts as soon as the conch piercing is part of your body. It is important to allow the puncture site to heal perfectly to enable your stylish body art to enhance your look for many years to come.
