Tragus Ear Curation - Stacking Earrings and Percing Information
The ear cartilage (the thick piece of flesh that forms the outside of the ear canal) has several areas all with different names. The tragus of the ear cartilage is a protective cover of the opening of the ear, safeguarding the little tube leading into the eardrum and other organs.
Ear curation the way you prefer with Metal Morphosis
We are an established family business and original rebels since 1991 which means we are over 30 years old! We feel proud of both of our unique and immaculately hygienic piercing studios based in Central and East London. Our range of body jewellery and earrings are:
Hypo allergenic - Made from 316L surgical stainless steel or titanium. The same metal used for surgical equipment, meaning no allergic reactions will ever take place with our jewellery. We also sell gold and .925 sterling silver earrings and body bars. Unlike commonly, purchased high street or costume jewellery, ours won’t ever rust, discolour or stain your skin.
Tragus Earrings, Bars, Clicker Hoops, Seam Rings and Labrets
We feel that the tragus is a very popular area for piercing with our clients, the small piece of cartilage on the inner side of your ear. As this is close to your face, it can have a real impact on your overall look and, once healed, can be changed to suit.
Products that are suitable for tragus piercings include: Jewelled clickers, beaded seam rings, a trio of crystals in silver, gold and titanium, also solid gold stud and clicker rings. There’s screw on balls and different styles of seam rings in a variety of metals to suit all tastes. We stock a selection of labrets and on occasion we offer a £10 mystery bag of labrets with limited availability - so be quick and buy in store as they are not available online.
Wearing perfumes, creams and make up will not effect our hypo allergenic jewellery, also they are swim safe, water and sweat proof; our metals will never fade or tarnish in the shower, swimming pool, the ocean or whilst exercising.
Clicker Earrings and Closing Mechanisms are Superior Quality
We’re committed to only stocking the finest quality jewellery with the highest grade metals. Our mechanisms and clickers are easy to use and made to last a life time, coupled with low to zero maintenance or upkeep is required but the occasional titanium and/or surgical stainless steel polishing is a personal choice

Ear Curation and Cartilage Piercings
London Cartilage Piercing Positioning and Advice
Whether it’s a single Helix piercing to a loaded stack we work with you to create the exact look you’ll love. We can advise on types of jewellery, the positioning of your piercing and how future piercings may look with your existing ones. We’re experts in cartilage piercing and ear styling. We’ve listed a few of the most popular cartilage piercings but remember, they may not be suitable for everyone so always get a professional opinion (us) before setting your heart on something.
Helix piercings are at the top, outer part of the ear and typically will have a hoop or stud after piercing. This type of piercing has been in many a rebel’s look book for years now and remains a popular starting point for multiple ear piercings.
The conch piercing's name comes from the fact that this part of the ear resembles a conch shell, the piercing goes through this cup-shaped area, adjacent to the ear canal. Depending on the exact location of your conch piercing, inner or outer etc will determine the type of jewellery you can wear in it.
Daith piercings are located in the innermost fold of your ear cartilage, just slightly above your ear canal. Not only are these piercings ridiculously cute, they’re thought to help relieve migraines by activating a pressure point located on the ear.
Forward Helix Piercing
The forward helix is the small outer rim of cartilage at the top, front of your ear and is directly opposite your helix. You can even have multiple forward helix piercings to really ramp up your look. Small studs are typically best for this area.
A rook piercing is through the inner edge of the uppermost ridge of the ear, just above the daith. One of the more modern piercings, this is a super versatile piercing. Because this area is fairly narrow, delicate and small jewellery is best but that doesn’t mean it won’t look stunning.

Ear Lobe Piercing London - Needles not Guns
We are not just about stacking as many piercings as physically possible, we also think less can be more. Sometimes a simple lobe piercing (or 2) can look phenomenal with the right jewellery.
Our lobe piercing is also only ever done with a needle. One reason for this is that you cannot sterilise the mechanism.
The spring firing mechanism can often be inaccurate and causes more pain and trauma to the skin.
Coming from a medical background, we use high quality, hypoallergenic sterile jewellery designed to leave enough room for the initial swelling and aftercare cleaning.
