A conch piercing is a type of ear piercing that is done on the outer part of the ear, on the flat cartilage that forms the cup-like shape of the ear. The conch can be located in the inner or outer part of the ear, depending on the size and shape of the ear.
The jewelry for a conch piercing is typically a barbell or captive bead ring, and it can be decorated with different types of beads, gems, or charms.
Like all body piercings, a conch piercing requires proper aftercare to minimize the risk of infection and ensure a successful healing process. The healing time for a conch piercing is about 4 to 12 months.
