Higher lobe piercings are a popular choice. Located on the higher part of the ear lobe, these are ideal for experimenting with your ear look. The Monica Vinader guide to high lobe piercings will tell you all you need to know for this style, what you can expect at your piercing appointment, how to care for and pick the perfect for you.
What is a Higher Lobe Piercing?
A higher lobe piercing is one that goes through the upper part of your ear lobe. This is the fleshy area of your ear just before it begins to be cartilage. The placement of this type of ear piercing allows for the effortless curation of earring ensembles unique to you without having to commit to cartilage piercings.
