These piercings are placed along the upper & rear of the ear.

If you love the look of singular, or multiple ear piercings; especially the ones that are on the upper ear, then this one may be for you. The rear helix piercing  gives a completely different look to lower ear piercings, as they are one of the most striking ear piercings you will see.

When you want a new piercing, but you aren’t sure if you’re ready for one that’s a little more involved, like a nose, lip or nipple piercing, a helix is a good choice of starter piercing.

It can give you a little bit of extra bling without standing out too much – it’s subtler for those who have professions that tend to frown on too many piercings.
