Cartilage ear piercing is all the rage these days, and this type of piercing can enhance your beauty more. A number of women have opted for cartilage ear piercing to accessorize their ears and make them look great. If done right, the piercing can also make a person’s overall look stand out. Well, there are many divas who think that cartilage piercing is only restricted to wearing a ring on the top of the ear. However, the truth is that there are several ways through which this piercing can be achieved.

So if you're planning to get your ear cartilage pierced, here are some ideas you should consider to get your artistic juices flowing.

1. Helix Piercing

This piercing look is generally achieved by piercing the upper cartilage of the ear and adorning it with a simple ring. You can also get two or three piercings one above the other to achieve double or triple helix piercings. To accessorize the helix holes, one can opt for cartilage stud earrings, round gold rings, flower ear piercing jewelry items or shiny gemstones.
