A flat back earring is defined as a bar/post with a flat back. This type of earring is usually recommended for tragus and forward helix piercings, but they can be used in helix, conch, flat, and lobe piercings. We love this type of earring because you can change the decorative part of the jewelry without removing the post. This simple hack makes the life of a piercing-lover way easier.
