A faux snug piercing is the combination of a conch and a helix piercing placed in such a way so as to resemble a snug piercing. The pain is relatively less and the healing time is also shorter and more comfortable than a standard snug piercing.
The snug piercing is done in the anti-helix part of the ear, adjacent to the ear canal. That is why it is also known as the anti-helix piercing. The inner ear counterpart of the helix piercing involves the perforation of both the inner and outer ear cartilage. The unique piercing would make you stand out in the crowd but that not everyone’s ear shape supports it should be taken into account.
If you adore the looks of cartilage piercings like the conch, rook, snug and tragus but are put off by their excessive healing time, you can try the orbital piercing that looks as stylish but has a shorter healing duration. It is a combination of two holes placed close to each other with a single piece of jewelry passing through them. It is usually done at the center of the helix region, but you can have it in any other part of the ear, including the lobe.
