Conch piercings are ear cartilage piercings located in the middle of the ear, in the concave section next to the ear canal. Conch piercings can be done in a range of gauges and most people wear either a barbell or a labret stud in their conch. Large diameter BCRs are also an option but not advised for healing, because they can be uncomfortable or snag on clothing. If your conch piecing is taking too long to heal we suggest inserting BioFlex jewellery.
Conch studs are a great option and most people go for a labret stud. Labret studs have a flat backplate that sits neatly against the back of your ear, while the front of the labret can be accessorised with a push-fit or threaded body jewellery accessory of your choice. Here you can see some of our best-selling conch studs but to see more designs simply click on any product or category.
If you prefer to wear a conch bar there is a huge range of different barbells you can wear in your conch piercing. Any short barbell is suitable for conch piercings and the front of the barbell can be accessorised with the threaded accessory of your choice. It is important to find a barbell of the right length or it may be uncomfortable at night. Most people can wear an 8mm barbell but ask your piercer if you are unsure.
