London Ear Piercing - Earlobe, Cartilage and Helix Earrings
Ear cartilage piercing is so hot right now, especially with all the stacking and curation opinions available, but where do you start?

It’s probably the most popular cartilage piercing and for good reason, the earrings are a statement in a location that's a little unusual
Helix Piercing - Where is it located on the ear?
A Helix piercing is located on the upper, outer rim of the ear. The piercing can be styled with hoops or studs, your piercer will be able to advise you on which jewellery will look great, suit your lifestyle and fit with any other piercings you already have or plan to get sometime soon.

Our teams in Hackney and Carnaby studios encourage questions, we know it can be daunting to get any piercing, and that’s why our piercers take the time to talk you through placement, sterilisation techniques, jewellery and aftercare with you.
