I have been a licensed Ear Piercing technician for 20 years at our jewelry store in Beverly Hills. A conch piercing is a form of body modification in which the cartilage of the ear is perforated in order to display jewelry.
Inner conch piercing occurs when a person has the innermost shell of his or her ear pierced.
I have to disagree with some of the other commenters on here -- I think conch ear piercings look horrible! All of my friends who have undergone outer conch piercing say the pain level they experienced was high. They are made of 24 karat pure gold over surgical steel - not just stainless, MEDICAL QUALITY- and they're nickel-free. Also known as a cartilage piercing, this type of ear piercing may involve either the inner or outer conch of the ear. Many people opt for the needle, as piercing guns result in more errors than precise needles. They look so much more unique than just having your earlobe pierced, but not as extreme as a labret piercing or something like that. However, I don't personally have one!


The earring tip that goes quickly thru the ear is sharp - NOT blunt, as one tattoo artist claims. Rings, barbells, and other metallic pieces of jewelry are typically chosen for this body piercing. Unlike many forms of body modification, a conch piercing has little to no risk of being rejected by the body or of being displaced. This piercing requires two cleanings with antiseptic solution each day during the first two weeks. I prefer to stick with the more traditional earlobe piercing.I kind of have a conservative look anyway, so I don't really think that a conch piercing would go well with it. When I was in high school, I knew a girl who got a conch piercing and she had a bad reaction to it.
As you can see below, the earring stud and the backing are positioned into the gun and lined up. We sterilize the gun after each use, we sterlize and de-bacterialize the person's ears before each ear piercing, and there is no blood!
Following the initial perforation, the pierced area may be stretched to accommodate large pieces of jewelry.


The procedure is generally safe, though a minor loss of hearing can occur from altering the shape of the conch. In order to prevent this from occurring, it is advisable to eat a small meal prior to engaging in body modification.
The only problem now is that its taking forever to heal since it is a piercing that can be easily bumped. But if you do, and you didn't have a reaction like that, you would probably be OK getting a conch piercings.
I think it's called a keloid, and I'm not sure if it can be removed or what. But anyway, I'm way too scared of this happening to get a conch piercing! I was looking at some conch piercing jewelry online the other day and thinking about how awesome it would look in my ear! I think I'm going to do it, but I'm having trouble deciding exactly what kind of conch piercing I want.
