Pierce me please...

Images from tumblr

I know it's not to everyone's taste, but I love ear piercings like the ones above - there's something eerily beautiful about them and I think they can be edgy in a simple, delicate way. It's not that I want my ear to resemble some form of sieve but I currently have my lobes done twice on both ears and I've managed to persuade my mum to let me have 2 extra piercings of my choice. I'd love to get my tragus done (first and second photo) with a stud in my left ear and then hopefully two cartilage piercings in my right  - I just haven't quite decided the positioning yet. I like wearing ear cuffs on my left ear so a high cartilage piercing on my right side might look a little odd...hmmm decisions....

Do you have any ear piercings? What do you think of my ideas?
I'd love to know what you all think :)

Love Ellen xx



  1. I only have my lobes done, these photos are beautiful though! I took my friend to get her cartilage pierced and watching her freak out put me off ;-) xx

  2. Wish I had some ear piercings!
    lovely post,

    thanks for the comment on my blog,

  3. Tragus piercing on the left and two cartilage piercings on the right sounds like THREE extra piercings not two! I like the piercings in the picture on the bottom left - very pretty.

  4. Love these examples! I like the tragus but I think it would just be too much of a pain with earphones so that puts me off. I used to have two cartilage piercings but I ended up taking the one at the top out because it was uncomfortable to sleep on. That means I now have an even number of earrings which for some reason annoys me haha x

  5. I have two cartilage ones on my left ear, I'm just waiting for the second one to heal (it takes AGES!) and then I want a third one :D x

  6. I'm desperate for my tragus but I'm scared of pain haha! Never going to work!

    Also could you please take a second to click and vote for me! It would mean a lot! :)

  7. I've got my cartilage pierced and plan to have quite a few more cartilage piercings. The only problem is they take such a long time so heal and can often be a little bit sore to sleep on. I totally agree with you though they do look beautiful! Xx

  8. Oh my, you're reading my mind, it's all I've been thinking about for the past few weeks! I really want to get some extra piercings on my ear, but I'm afraid that it'll hurt or that I'll regret it or (my hypochondriac side comes out) that it will get infected or something. But it just looks so lovely on everyone, I just really want one!

  10. I love tragus piercings! I think they look so fab, I'd really like mine done once I get my mothers permission (on the same list of tattoo - it may be some while). Cartilage piercings look good too though, such a hard decision!

    Thank you for visiting my blog, following you now :) xxx

  11. I adore everything about your blog! I am following :)

  12. I have my lobes done, and a tragus piercing with a ring :) My tragus piercing barely hurt at all, and it healed quickly too. I'm thinking of getting my cartilage pierced but never get round to doing it. My problem is that I like too many different ear piercings, but have to be very picky over what I get as I don't want to cover my ears with metal D:

  13. I don't have any ear piercings, but I do have my septum piercing! hehe.
    Nice ones on the pictures! <3

  14. I've got my tragus done on my left ear (exactly like the second picture) and I absolutely love it! you should definitely get it done :) i'd love to get another piercing like the last photo here on the opposite ear to my tragus piercing but... it sounds so painful and i am a wimp! ha xxx

  15. I awarded you the Kreativ blogger award, if you're interested then check out my blog for more details :)

  16. Love the post! I love ear piercings too :)

  17. i love ear piercings!
    my helix piecing closed up, so gutted ):
    but i might get it again and get my tragus pierced too hehe!

  19. I have 3 lobes and that's it :)
    I like your idea!

  20. I love the first and third piercings!

  21. I love ear piercings but I am too scared to get any more done that just your usual! My friend has loads and they are amazing! :)

    I am now following your blog! Thanks for visiting mine and for your lovely comment!


  22. I have quite a few ear piercings but my ears are pretty big so I think I get away with it. My right ear is heavily stretched then I have two cartilage piercings around the middle/top. My left ear has a scaffold bar and two lobe piercings.

    I'd love to get my tragus/anti-tragus/conch pierced somewhere along the line & I'd definitely say go for it. The best thing about having piercings is you can always take them out and let them heal if you change your mind or fancy something new!

    I'm your new follower by the way, great blog.

  23. I had the top of my cartilage pierced when I was 13 and sadly it's pretty much healed up now, but I would definitely get it done :) xx

  25. i'd love a cartilage piercing but i'm too scared, got my lobes and thats it! i'm sure it'd look great on you!
