A very popular type of body piercing now is the Auricle piercing. Also, known as a ‘rim’ piercing, the Auricle piercing is a piercing of the cartilage that is found along the outer edge of the ear at the furthest point from the head.
The most common form of jewelry worn for this body piercing is a captive bead ring (shown to the right of a daith piercing in photo). This type of body piercing can be easily done with a body piercing kit, or by a professional body piercer. Healing time for this type of piercing is generally between 2 to 3 weeks.
