An auricle piercing is the process of piercing of the lower part of the outer ear cartilage to allow an individual to wear a piece of jewellery in that area. As the cartilage lacks a bloody supply of its own, auricle piercings tend to take longer to heal than simple lobe piercings. While not as popular as lobe piercings, auricle piercings have gained great popularity as a stylish body modification, along with the related helix and conch piercings.
