You don't need to have multiple cartilage piercings to make a statement - go for multiple lobe piercings and a top ear piercing. Mix and match huggie hoop earrings, flat back earrings, and chain jackets to create a bold look.


This look can give you a lot of ear piercing ideas. If you've got the space for it, why not upgrade your double helix piercing to a triple helix piercing? Highly recommend pairing these with different huggie earrings because, um, look.

Layering crystal studs along your cartilage is a quick way to take your ear game to the next level. Opt for mini stud earrings for your conch piercing and ear lobe to make the look extra unique and dainty, and put a tiny hoop in your forward helix piercing to make it more stylish! 


Love yellow gold jewelry? Work your way up to this all-around multiple ear cartilage piercings so you can wear as many gold cartilage earrings as you damn well please.

There's nothing prettier than a stack of hoop earrings, so why not go full throttle and layer five or six on one ear? I love the idea of adding a chain earring for even more dimension.

Not sure how to style your double helix piercings? Try adding a piercing stud and a huggie earring for a chic look! Another thing that makes this ear piercing idea super cute is the tiny stud in the conch piercing.


If a conch piercing seems a liiitle out of your pain threshold, consider trying out the daith piercing. They level up the look like nothing else, and are suppose to hurt less than the conch piercing.

There's just something extra cool about a double helix piercing, but double helix piercing with conch piercing? That's seriously next level.


Tragus piercing may be dainty, but they can really make a statement when you coordinate your jewelry with whatever's on your ear (like this ear piercing idea). Also, forward helix piercing looks very dainty and chic with a classic gold piercing hoop.
