The conch piercing is one of the coolest and most unique types of ear piercings out there and one that is frequently done at Smiley Dogg.

The conch piercing is a type of cartilage piercing located in the innermost shell of your ear. The name “conch” comes from the shell-like shape of the area being pierced. This piercing is usually done with a small gauge needle and once it’s healed, can accommodate various types of jewellery, from simple studs to elaborate hoops and even dangling earrings.

One of the great things about conch piercings is that they can be done in two different locations: the inner conch or the outer conch. The inner conch piercing is located closer to the centre of your ear and requires a bit more precision and skill from the piercer. The outer conch piercing is located further out towards the edge of your ear and is a bit easier to perform.

The healing process for a conch piercing can take several months, and it’s important to take good care of it during that time to prevent infections and ensure proper healing. But once it’s fully healed, you’ll have a stunning and unique addition to your ear jewellery collection.

Overall, if you’re looking for a fun and trendy piercing that will set you apart from the crowd, a conch piercing is definitely worth considering!
