Conch piercing is rising in popularity and is especially popular when adorned with a hoop or ring. This is usually fitted close to the ear for a cute cuff style look. The conch piercing can be performed in several locations but the most common is in the ‘shell’ of the ear, hence the name. It is said that the inner part of the ear looks somewhat like a conch seashell. In this article, we have gathered all your most frequently asked conch piercings questions to help you, whether you have already had this piercing or are thinking about making the conch your next piercing. 

How long does a conch piercing take to heal? 

Conch piercing healing time will usually take between 3 – 9 months to fully heal. It is often recommended not to change the piercing jewellery until a year after piercing. With conch piercing healing tips such as not wearing headphones and not changing the jewellery, you should find the process runs smoothly. Make sure, as part of your conch piercing aftercare, to bathe the area twice a day with a salt water or Tea Tree Oil solution. 

During conch piercing healing, take care to avoid knocking the area or putting pressure on the piercing. For example, make sure to avoid sleeping on the side of your piercing and avoid wearing headphones during the initial healing duration. 

Customers sometimes worry about having problems such as infections with their new piercings but following simple aftercare regimes can help put your mind at ease. It doesn’t take much to keep your piercing clean. The key is in doing it regularly (usually twice a day). Keeping up with good aftercare practices during and after healing will help reduce the chances of a conch piercing infection. Aside from regularly cleaning the piercing, cleaning other areas such as around the ear and your headphones can help you ensure you don’t get an infected conch piercing

When can I change my conch piercing? 

We know many people are keen to change their conch piercing to a ring but during the healing process, it is definitely best to stick to a barbell or labret to minimise the pressure on the piercing and reduce the risk of it getting knocked or caught. We recommend waiting for a year before changing the jewellery. Believe us, your patience will pay off in the long run! 

How much does a conch piercing hurt? 

Many people ask how bad do conch piercings hurt? Conch piercing pain is on a level with most other cartilage ear piercing but some consider it to be a little more painful due to its location. Generally, it is thought of as a medium pain of about 4 to 5 out of 10. It is important to remember that conch piercing pain will feel different to different people and the rating is based on an average score. 

Is the conch the most painful piercing? 

The conch piercing is not considered the most painful piercing, however, it is considered to hurt more than some other ear piercings. This is due to the thickness of the cartilage that the piercing passes through. This piercing can sometimes bleed afterwards, especially if you have been pierced with a dermal punch, as this removes a small part of the cartilage. The piercing is also considered more painful due to the hardness of the cartilage in this part of the ear. 

Does rook or conch hurt more? 

The general opinion is that the rook and conch piercings have an equal amount of pain. Both piercings will hurt because they are passing through thick and hard areas of cartilage. However, the swelling you experience may differ. Again, this can vary as each body will react differently. The rook piercing can appear to swell more significantly because it is a smaller part of the ear. 

What part of the ear is the conch? 

The conch is the inner shell of the ear. Its name derives from the conch seashell which is of a similar shape. This is the middle part of the ear cartilage which offers plenty of space to achieve a fully customisable piercing. You can even add to your conch piercing by making it a double, triple, or quadruple cluster piercing.   

What do conch piercings help with? 

Through anecdotal evidence, it is said that conch piercings can help with chronic pain. This can be linked to acupuncture where points on the ear are used to relieve pressure. This isn’t the only ear piercing that can help with pain. It is now widely acknowledged by the general public that Daith piercings seem to alleviate the symptoms of migraines in some cases. 

Outer Conch Vs Inner Conch 

There are two options with the conch piercing. The inner conch is perhaps the most common and is placed in the lower shell of the ear. The outer conch is placed at the top of the ear ‘shell’. The inner conch piercing can be easier to wear with a BCR or ring than the outer conch due to the location. However, both will usually initially be pierced with a labret. 

There are even more options than the inner and outer conch. You can get double, triple, or even quadruple conch piercings to create a piercing cluster. You could also try out the rare conch orbital piercing. This is often mistaken for a regular conch piercing with ring jewellery but is actually a different orientation to the usual conch piercing and requires two piercing holes to give the look that the jewellery is ‘orbiting’ the ear cartilage. 

What piercings look good with a conch? 

While piercing combinations are a matter of opinion, especially when it comes to creating your own piercing constellation, some of the more widely popular combinations include adding a flat piercing, helix or rook piercing to your collection. The overall look of your ear will also vary depending on the type of jewellery you use. A labret, for example, will look completely different from a conch piercing with a ring. 

What gauge should a conch piercing be? 

The conch piercing gauge will vary depending on how you were pierced. With a conch piercing, you can choose between a needle and a dermal punch. The dermal punch will give a larger gauge whereas the piercing needle will give a standard size of usually about 16ga (1.2mm). Remember, it is always best to check with your piercer which size you have been pierced with in order to make sure your new jewellery is comfortable and doesn’t undo all your good healing efforts. Once your piercing has healed you can choose an appropriate conch ring size for your new piercing. 

What is the price of a conch piercing? 

While it varies for each store the current conch piercing price at Blue Banana is £30 - £35, depending on the jewellery you choose. We always recommend getting piercing with a form of titanium jewellery as this material is hypoallergenic and durable. The cost of this piercing reflects the experience needed to safely perform a cartilage piercing.
