What are the different types of ear piercing performed at Silver Lining?
Social media has made it possible to see the different ways your ears can be decorated with unique and innovative piercings and the stylish jewellery you can wear with them. Examples of some of the ear piercings available at our Manchester location include the following:
Lobe Ear Piercing
Lobe piercings are where most people start when getting their ears pierced and is our most popular piercing.
This does not mean that they are lacking excitement however and come in a variety of fashion shapes and sizes.
We have both plain surgical steel and gold plated balls, as well as cubic zirconia crystal cut earrings and birthstones.
The procedure is painless and here at Silver Lining we pierce your lobes with our Studex 75 cartridge system, traditional earrings with butterfly backs.
We also pierce lobes with a needle and labret for those who prefer this method but both methods are tried and tested by our in-house specialists, and are safe and hygienic.
Forward Helix Piercing
Forward Helix piercings are a unique type of ear piercing, due to their ability to be customised and fit any personal style.
Located on the upper cartilage of your ear, directly above the tragus and facing forward.
Forward helix piercings don’t require any specialist equipment and can be performed in a typical fashion, much like a standard lobe piercing.
As with most of our piercings, you can upgrade your piercing to include both gold and black bars as well as a variety of crystal coloured balls.
Transverse Lobe Piercing
An alternative to the traditional lobe piercings, a tranverse lobe is just as simple, but a lot more unique. The piercing itself is a curved bar pierced through the earlobe from side to side, rather than front to back.
Rather than having a front and back like a lobe stud would, transverse piercings have a ball on each end that can be seen on either side of the earlobe once pierced.
Otherwise known as anti-helix piercing, snug piercings are a great addition to your piercing portfolio.
That being said, a snug piercing is a unique and interesting ear piercing for someone experienced in getting their body parts pierced and now would like something outside a bit different.
Snug piercings are located at the top of the anti-tragus, and are pierced through an area called the anti-helix, which sits between the rim of your ear and the inner cartilage.
We have a vast range of jewellery for snug piercings at our Manchester store and our pierceres will help you pick the right one for you. Upgrades are a fantastic addition to your piercing and can include coloured bars, and crystal coloured balls, to make your piercing unique to yourself, and be the envy of your friends.
