Conch piercing is a perforation of the largest cartilage in the middle of an ear. This part of cartilage reminds of a conch seashell, and that’s why it is called this way. You may have two variations of conch ear piercing: the outer and the inner one.
The outer conch piercing is located in the upper part of the cartilage. For this piercing type, you may have a catchy hoop around the outward ear ridge.
The inner conch piercing is located in the lower cartilage. This puncture goes through the ear ridge, and it is usually decorated with shiny studs.
