Ear – Conch

Ear – Conch

The Conch is the large area of cartilage that makes up the back of the ear. Though large diameter Ball Closure Rings have been successfully used, this piercing heals quicker when a labret or barbell is used. Again, the gauge can be anything up to 3.2mm but the length need only be a couple of millimetres larger than the thickness of the cartilage; usually 8mm long is suitable. Healing Time: 8 – 16 weeks
