What is a Helix Piercing?

Location: Ear, Helix
Jewellery: Barbell, Captive Bead Ring

A helix piercing involves the upper cartilage and curled outer rim of your ear, which can be done several times, allowing the wearer to wear individual jewellery in each piercing or weave curved barbells through more than one. One of the most popular types of ear piercing, it is a very traditional area to have done, both for men and women. Typically, rings and barbells are worn in the helix piercing, but it is a versatile area for jewellery.

More About Helix Piercing

A perforation of the upper ear, a helix piercing is one of the most popular types of ear piercing after the traditional lobe piercing. Usually done with a small hollow needle, jewellery usually worn in the completed piercing has traditionally been a captive bead ring or stud. If two helix piercings are linked with one barbell, this is called an industrial or scaffold piercing because of the nature of construction and linking of the two piercings by one piece of jewellery.
