The helix piercing is often generally referred to as a cartilage piercing. It is the topmost, outer part of the ear. It is easily accessible making it simple to get pierced. The cartilage is hard here but not as painful to get pierced as other areas. After lobe piercings, this is the most common type of piercing Toronto tattoo shops have requested. This area is hard to heal though due to low blood supply so it might never technically heal all the way so proper care is important long term.
Helix piercing can also refer to the entire outer ring of the ear. Many people get rings all down it, having 25-30 holes to complete the look. You can get the piercings done one at a time or all at once.
