Orbital Piercing



Orbital piercing offers excellent styles that help make your piercing stand out as unique. The process improves your overall look, and can enhance your confidence with ease.

Orbital piercings offer many attractive incentives. They provide the fastest healing times, as they are usually done on the ear lobe. Their placement does not stick out or dangle, reducing the chances of your earring getting snagged on clothing or hair.

Once you have decided to book an orbital piercing to add to your collection, it’s important to do some thorough research on orbital piercing fundamentals for a full understanding of what you’re getting into before walking into your chosen studio.

Piercing Location To achieve an orbital piercing, two perforations are made to the ear, so that they can be connected with a single ring. These piercings can be located along the ear and in the same locations as conch, helix, rook and lobe piercings.

Jewelry Options Your piercer will guide you through the exciting process of selecting your favourite piece of jewelry. Orbital piercing jewelry style options include: a ball closure ring or smooth segment ring. Black Line Studio does not advise removal of jewelry for at least 8 to 12 weeks post your piercing service. Whether before or after the piercing is completely healed, when it comes to changing the jewelry, we recommend that you consult with your piercer.


Aftercare – When following Black Line Studio’s after care protocol, the healing time for an orbital piercing is typically 8 to 12 months.

Following the correct aftercare procedure ensures your healing process will be predictable and easy. For the best results, wash your hands thoroughly before cleaning or even touching areas you have pierced. While washing your hands, gently use saline solution or recommended detergent in all placements around the piercing and leave it to dry well. Avoid using soaps with dyes, triclosan, fragrances, or harsh chemicals.

Do a brief rinse to remove traces of soap from piercing areas. It is unnecessary to rotate the jewelry after piercing, since it can bring on itching or swelling complications. Afterwards, use clean disposable paper to pat the area dry, as cloth towels can snag on the jewelry and harbour bacteria.

During the healing process, bleeding, tenderness, and localized swelling can cause itching, discoloration, and secretion of whitish-yellow fluid, forming some crusts on the jewelry.

Keep your new orbital piercing in your pierced area during the healing period, and always check with a professional piercer before you make any jewelry changes. Ensure you leave the jewelry in at all times to avoid complications around reinsertion of your piercing once taken out.

Frequently Asked Questions

Orbital piercing is when you make two holes directly in your ear and connect them using a hoop. The piercing is mainly done on the ear lobe or conch area, even though it can be placed higher in the middle of the outer ear. The piercing can also be done on any part of the body, and can be connected using a forward helix or a rook to offer a unique look.

Essentially orbital piercing is akin to industrial piercing; it joins two holes with a bar to the upper cartilage of your ear, but differs a bit with the use of a tiny hoop. Many individuals prefer getting their orbital ear piecing on their lower lobe, since the tissue is softer and heals quickly. Orbital lobe piercings are less painful, unlike cartilage piercings, making them the perfect placements unique to your piercings.

Seeking professional piercing services rewards you with unmatchable hygiene and an impeccable environment that meets all necessary health guidelines and standards. Through an expert, you access a wealth of experience that allows you to achieve your desired look with excitement and ease.

Effective orbital piercing involves engaging two adjacent perforations on the ear to ensure they are connected using a single ring. The piercings are located along the ear and in similar locations as the lobe, helix, rook, and conch.

Choosing your favourite jewelry is a great way to improve your sense of beauty and glamour. There are many jewelry styles available to you, including smooth segment rings and ball closure rings. Professional studios recommend keeping your jewelry in its piercing for around 8 - 10 weeks after getting it.

You can get many different types of orbital piercings based on your preference and need. The orbital variations and inspirations can be orbital ear-piercing, orbital lobe piercing, and orbital conch piercing. Here is a comprehensive list of the piercings you can get:

  • Twisted Conch Hoop
  • Tiny Gold Hoop
  • Tiny Silver Rose Earring with Three Sets

  • Gold Criss Cross Orbital Hoop

Taking care of new orbital piercings is similar to the process involved with other piercings. Ensure you clean the piercing 2-3 times a day using a saline solution for the entire healing period. Perform this practice regularly until the piercer confirms the piercing has completely healed. It is worth seeking the services of a professional to ascertain whether or not your piercing has fully healed, since the exterior of the pierced area does heal faster than the interior.
