WHAT IS A CONCH PIERCING?
The inner conch piercing is where a hole is punctured through the middle of the ear to allow the wearing of a stud. The name derives from the ‘conch’ shell, due to the shape of that area of the ears resemblance to a shell. There are two kinds of conch piercings, the inner and outer conch. The Conch Piercing is going to be a little uncomfortable. However, it is no different from most cartilage procedures, a little more painful than a lobe piercing, but very bearable – you can do it!
